Britney Spears Meets Privately with Hillary Clinton But Deletes Endorsement


Hillary Clinton met privately with Britney Spears in Las Vegas Thursday night — but the Democrat presidential candidate was apparently unable to secure the pop star’s endorsement.

Spears, who performs a nightly show at Planet Hollywood on the Strip, posted photos of her meeting with Clinton on social media along with messages of support for the candidate, who is stumping in Las Vegas ahead of the Nevada Democrat caucus on Saturday.

“Being in Vegas for #PieceOfMe is amazing for so many reasons… Especially today… because I had the incredible opportunity to meet @HillaryClinton!!” the singer captioned her Instagram post. “Such an inspiration and beautiful voice for women around the world!!!! This woman had an intense presence and I felt very honored to meet her!!!”

The pop star also posted a set of pictures to Twitter and Facebook:

But according to CNN, Spears’ original Instagram post included the hashtag #ImWithHer, traditionally used by Clinton’s allies and endorsers. The singer later edited her post and removed the hashtag.

Clinton and her rival for the Democrat nomination, Sen. Bernie Sanders, remain locked in a virtual dead heat ahead of Saturday’s crucial Nevada contest.

Clinton will attempt to shore up support among younger voters after Sanders won 83 percent of millennial-aged voters in New Hampshire and 84 percent of millennial voters in Iowa earlier this month, according to CNN polls.
