No, not because of the music, sadly

(Newser) – Australia just declared Katy Perry's new album, Prism, a potential biohazard, news.com.au reports. And if you're thinking, "Yep, that's how I'd describe her music, too," well, sorry. It was actually some seed packets, not songs, that got the album designated as such. The deluxe version of Prism contains the packets, and Australian biosecurity officers are inspecting any CDs that were purchased overseas, since the seeds could pose a risk to Australia. The Australian version of the album contains harmless local seeds. Why seeds? As Perry explained on Twitter, they're "seed prism[s]" that "you can plant to spread the light!"
