Katy Perry: 'Queen Made Me Discover Music'
K-Pez praises Freddie Mercury for making her feel "confident"...
Thursday, September 5, 2013 - 14:44
The Roar singer has made no secret of her love for Freddie Mercury and Co, even calling her new fragrance after the band's 1974 hit, Killer Queen.
During an interview with the October issue of Cosmopolitan magazine, K-Pez explained: "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."
She added: "And I also love the idea of a woman who reigns and has power, like your Queen in the UK."
Much like Mercury, the 28-year old went on to state that she loves "having fun" with her look, stating: "I want to present myself as a human being, with lots of different aspects that aren't necessarily perfect.
"I think it's totally fine to accept everything you have if you can. It's good to try and have a certain grace with everything, but a sense of humour is most important. I try not to take myself too seriously."
