Speaking to Cosmopolitan, Katy Perry revealed that the late Freddie Mercury was a major influence on her recording career.
Perry went on to say that one of Queen's most-loved songs, "Killer Queen," helped inspire her to get into music. Perry stated: "Queen's track 'Killer Queen' made me discover music and helped me come into my own at the age of 15. The way Freddie Mercury delivered his lyrics just made me feel like a confident woman; I'd say his fingerprint is all over me in general. And I also love the idea of a woman who reigns and has power, like Queen Elizabeth in the UK."
