Ricki-Lee Coulter reveals why she’s disgusted

She’s returned to Sydney after a two-year stint in Hollywood.

And in an interview with TheFix on Wednesday, songstress Ricki-Lee revealed her thoughts on Australia’s failure to date in legalising same-sex marriage.

‘I’m disgusted…sick to my stomach,’ the 31-year-old told the publication.  

‘I’m sick to my stomach’: Australian Idol star Ricki-Lee Coulter, 31, revealed she’s ‘disgusted’ to live in a country where same-sex marriage isn’t legal, in an interview with TheFix 

‘I’m so ashamed that we live in a country that this isn’t law. I’m disgusted…sick to my stomach,’ Ricki-Lee said of certain prominent Australian politician’s reluctance to make same-sex marriage legal.

‘It’s so important to use your voice and make your voice heard. Don’t get complacent and think that somebody else is going to make it happen.

‘If everyone uses this moment, it’s going to make a huge difference in so many people’s lives,’ the Australian Idol star went on to say.

Ricki-Lee’s comments come as the country awaits the results of the same-sex postal vote.

The law of allowing same-sex couples to marry was passed at the federal level in America, back in 2015.   

Two years ago also marks Ricki-Lee’s attempt to break into Hollywood as a recording artist.

Describing the difficulty of her fame translating stateside, the brunette told The Daily Telegraph earlier this month: ‘It’s tough! Nobody cares about you or what you’ve done.’

She went on: ‘The writers want to get their songs on the next Justin Bieber or Beyoncé record.’

Ricki-Lee explained that she was torn about what kind of artist she wanted to be.

‘I was torn for so long, trying to please everyone — between my fans that love dance/club pop, and making songs that were more story-based and less about shaking your as*,’ she said. 

Ricki-Lee became a household name after appearing in the second season of singing reality contest Australian Idol in 2001.
