Katy Perry goes cold on Tony Abbott over gay stance

TONY Abbott may look set to win the federal election but he won't be getting the vote of US pop star Katy Perry.

The Opposition leader was one of a number of high profile Aussies given the chance to chat with the successful singer on Sydney radio station 2DayFM with Kyle and Jackie O.

Mr Abbott said he wanted to Perry's song Hot N Cold to be his anthem.

The song lyrics might come back to bite him.

"You change your mind like a girl changes clothes," it begins.

"Cos you're hot when you're cold, you're yes when you're no.''

Mr Abbott started the interview with Perry by asking when the pop star was coming back to Australia.

Perry was quick off the mark, saying "let's talk about gay marriage".

"When are you coming back (to Australia)? We need you, we want you," Mr Abbott said.

"Oh come on, that's not a political question, let's talk about gay marriage," she retorted.

"Now you're interviewing me, Katy," a surprised Mr Abbott replied.

Perry has taken part in marriage equality rallies on the issue in the US.

When told of Mr Abbott's view against gay marriage, Perry said: "I love you as a human being but I can't give you my vote.''

But she said she would have lunch with Mr Abbott and would love to meet his daughters, if he would have her in the country.
