That is so untrue. In fact, the subtlety of the meaning behind "Chained to the Rhythm" is what made news outlets publish several stories of the political underlinings of the song. Sure, preconceived notions about the GP indicate that they're ignorant but this clearly isn't the case since rallying against political causes (ex: she went to several Hillary Clinton rallies) is how she marketed herself at the time. 

"Chained to the Rhythm" is a song about the sedative powers of pop and the collapse of American society. It still gives me goosebumps, and even a shock of self-recognition. Dancing or singing along, I've been one of the literal "wasted zombies" to which the chorus is addressed, spiraling in the Trump era into loops of alcohol-fueled escapism and dread.—Vice

Of course, Perry has been a political pop star outside of her music for years, serving as the most visible musical artist to stump for Hillary Clinton during last year's campaign. And she's hardly the only pop artist making these types of politically charged statements -- "Chained To The Rhythm" is unique, for doing two things: striking the first anti-Donald Trump blow since the man actually became president, and amplifying Perry's new musical agenda at a time when she needed one.—Billboard

Katy Perry’s new video for “Chained to the Rhythm” throws shade at fossil fuels and predatory home lending, nuclear weapons and nuclear families, lines at amusement parks and space helmets worn on Earth. “Katy Perry was the first pop star on the Hillary train, and if Clinton gets elected, she’ll have the most powerful woman in the world in her corner,” said the subhead on an October 2016 Daily Beast piece. “Looks like it’s gonna be a looong four years for her nemesis.”-The Atlantic

While upbeat on the surface, “Chained to the Rhythm” reflects a dire world of repetition and ignorance, all of us trapped like hamsters on a wheel—more on that later—feeding on a false reality. “So comfortable we’re living in a bubble, bubble/ so comfortable we cannot see the trouble, trouble,” she repeats.—TIME

You get the gist. In fact, she received criticism several times because of her political agenda after her interview during the infamous "Witness World Wide" installment. She promoted political messages at the GRAMMYs and BRITS, the music video to the song also has several political messages, and she even called "Chained to the Rhythm" purposeful pop which was all over social media. 

But does a casual person really sit there and read news articles about that? That just doesn’t seem realistic. 

Thats why people constantly are like, “Does Gaga still make music?”. Because if they don’t hear her on the radio or on tv, she doesn’t exist. 

Radios control everything. Shame.
