Katy Perry Calls Out Australian Politican Over Marriage Equality Opposition

Katy Perry let her roar be heard on Australian radio earlier this week when Tony Abbott, a conservative politician running for Prime Minister, phoned in to ask a question courtesy of his daughters.

After asking if she would return to Australia in the near future as part of a live tour, Katy answered, "Oh come on. That's not a political question. Let's talk about gay marriage."

"Now you're interviewing me, Katy?" Abbott asked.

"Yeah, buddy, that's right. Love is equal!" she replied with a hearty "Woooh!"

“I love you as a human being but I can’t give you my vote, then,” Perry told Abbott, who's called marriage equality a "radical change based on the fashion of the movement." “I just don’t believe in your policies so that’s what a lot of people should be doing.”

"I respectfully disagree with a number of people, including my own sister, on this subject, but no doubt we'll all continue to say our piece," Abbott later said about the confrontation.

Fast forward to the 3:00 mark for Abbott's appearance on the call:
