Katy Perry paid tribute to Aretha Franklin's amazing 2009 inauguration hat by bringing along her own mini version of the now-infamous design to the 2013 inauguration of President Barack Obama on Monday.

The singer tweeted a photo of the tiny gray hat with a comically oversized bow and wrote:

"I thought it would be fun to do a shout-out back to four years ago," she explained.

Perry seemed to have a blast while in Washington, D.C., where she performed at the 2013 Kids' Inaugural Concert on Saturday looking very patriotic in a star-spangled costume.
