“Let’s talk about gay marriage. Yeah, buddy, that’s right. Love is equal.”

Pop star Katy Perry to Tony Abbott, a conservative Australian politician who strongly opposes same-sex marriage, during an interview on an Australian radio show. Abbott, currently in the lead to become the country’s next prime minister, phoned into the show to ask when Perry would perform in Australia again, but the pop star, a longtime, outspoken supporter of gay marriage, was in a political mood and got feisty.
