Australia Thinks Katy Perry Is an Eco-terrorist


Katy Perry seems like a nice enough lady. She’s always bubbly and playful. But beneath that jovial veneer lies something sinister: ecoterrorism.

Perry’s latest album “Prism” (aside from being pretty damn catchy) comes in several different special editions, many of which contain seeds to plant and “spread the light” — seeds that Australian officials say could destroy their ecosystem and murder everything they hold dear (or something).

Although Australian versions of the album have seeds sourced from Western Australia, international versions might bring demon Polish seeds, or other kinds, into the country. So says the Department of Agriculture (via Rolling Stone):

“Seeds or plant material of international origin may be a weed not present in Australia or the host of a plant pathogen of biosecurity concern. The Australian Government has a strong system in place to detect and respond to material of biosecurity concern. This includes the inspection of mail, cargo and baggage.”

So if you’re an Aussie who wants to plant Perry’s perilous foreign seeds, prepare to hear the (amusingly-accented) roar of the government.
