Pop star Mariah Carey said it was an honour to meet President Clinton and her husband recently.

The 49-year-old Grammy winner met Hillary and Bill Clinton at Barbra Streisand’s concert Saturday night at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

“An honour to meet President Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton! Thank you for everything you have done and continue to do for our country,” Carey said in a tweet Monday, accompanying the post with a pair of selfies posing with each of the politicians.

She shared the same photos on Instagram.

Carey has been a longtime supporter of Hillary, 71 but she previously told Andy Cohen during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live that she doesn’t feel it’s her place as an entertainer to speak too openly about her personal politics.

“It’s so hard, because I’m just an entertainer,” she told the Bravo host. “I’m not a political analyst. So I don’t want to be vocal about my true feelings about all of this, but I have them.”

Carey has performed for 72-year-old Bill and Barack Obama during each of their presidencies, and was vocal in her support for the 44th president in 2012.

In 2013, the singer appeared at the National Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony alongside the Obamas.

One of her twins accidentally spit up on Michelle Obama’s dress.

“Rocky spit up on Michelle Obama’s dress, and it was one of the most humiliating things that ever happened to me,” she said, on another episode of WWHL. She was like, ‘Thanks to you, I’ll never be able to wear this dress again, Rocky. So thank you.”

Carey’s meeting with the Clinton’s Saturday night wasn’t the first time she has interacted with Bill.

In 2001, they shook hands on stage at a VH1 event, according to the Associated Press.Follow us on Social Media
