It’s no surprise that a lot of pop stars were openly rooting for Barack Obama’s reelection Tuesday night—and when the networks called Ohio for the Prez, many celebrated accordingly.
None, however, could match the wit and wisdom of LL Cool J, who combined jubilant support for Obama with just a hint of self-promotion and one horrible/amazing pun:
Don’t call it a comeback he’s been here 4 years. twitter.com/llcoolj/status…

Elsewhere in social media, the celebrities were more reserved, but only slightly. Beyonce decided to introduce a little-used slang phrase to the popular lexicon:
While Katy Perry was proud all those special outfits weren’t for nothing:
DONE AND DUSTED!!!

Lady Gaga was beyond words:

Though Justin Bieber had to reminder everyone he had no part in this:
alot of emotions right now. congrats President Obama…Im Canadian. Im good. #FreeHealthcare

Nicki Minaj took a moment of sincerity:
Cried the first time he was elected and this time was just so surreal…never thought I’d see this in my lifetime. #GodBlessAmerica

Rihanna just wanted to party:
Put one in da air for the Prez!!!! Our dear Obama!

While John Legend gave a shout-out to his homie Nate:
Respect to @fivethirtyeight by the way. Pundits need to recognize.

And Ashlee Simpson was beside herself with glee:
4 more years!! #Obama

But sadly, on such a happy day there was also a small amount of bad news:
In 2008 I wrote “its a new day” 1week before @barackobama won…and last week I wrote another victory song…it will be out in 1week

Oh well. You can’t win ‘em all!
