The news of Usama Bin Laden's death triggered a wave of patriotism across the United States on Sunday night. But a handful in Hollywood were not as ecstatic.

"I dont know how I feel about 'celebrating' death. But im just glad this happened during a good man's presidency," tweeted "Maroon 5" frontman Adam Levine. "I feel a sense of RELIEF as opposed to a sense of JOY."

Katy Perry also seemed to have mixed thoughts on the issue, tweeting:

"I believe in justice... but don't u think that an eye for an eye will make the whole world blind?" she wrote, before a little later adding some pro-American rhetoric with "...But in general (& then after this I'll go back to being an opinion less popstar) It is a GREAT day 4 America & I'm PROUD 2 b an American!"

HOT SHOTS: Katy Perry.

Other stars were more uniformly positive. 

"Osama Bin Laden is dead!!! I can't wait to hear President Obama's announcement!!!" tweeted Kim Kardashian, while Paris Hilton wrote "Just landed back in LA, so happy to hear the news of Osama bin Laden's death. He was the face of terrorism and such an evil man. The world is a much better place with him not in it." 

HOT SHOTS: Kim Kardashian.

Olivia Munn also weighed in on the news, tweeting "Coming from a military family and as a proud American- GOD BLESS all the soldiers fighting this war. BIG HUG!!" as rocker Joel Madden kept his words short and sweet: "America!!! F$CK YEAH!!!" and Lindsay Lohan echoed sentiment with "Go USA!"

Pete Wetz sang the President's praises with his tweet: "Wow obama 1, 2 punch: lion king video than osama dead. seriously i wanna see who runs in 2012..." as did Jimmy Fallon who wrote "Got Bin Laden AND interuppted Celebrity Apprentice? Win for Obama all around."

Actress Minka Kelly proceeded to blast out a slew of pictures direct from Ground Zero, referring to the "celebration" as "a moving moment," comedian Jimmy Kimmel expressed his hope that the Al Quaeda leader "didn't get reincarnated as one of Mariah Carey's babies," and Lady Gaga called it an "historical moment in the fight against hatred."

HOT SHOTS: Minka Kelly.

Rapper Snoop Dogg proclaimed that it is time to bring the troops home.

"Rip to everybody who was taken on 911. Let the troops bac home n lower gas prices let's live happily ever after," he sent to his twitter followers. "Bring the soilders bac home asap! They r missed! We love how they fight for us now let's fight for them!!"

And over at country music festival Stagecoach, Rascal Flatts announced the news while on stage, prompting a crowd of more than 50,000 to join together chanting "USA! USA!"
