Influenced by artists such as Heart and late Queen singer Freddie Mercury, Katy Perry tells the Palo Alto Daily News she hopes to be the woman that 14 and 15-year-old girls look up to. “Freddie Mercury wrote ‘Killer Queen.’ I know it might be about a prostitute, but I really feel it’s about me, a strong female,” Perry said. “There’s still a void for a rock chick. … The only rock chick we have is Avril Lavigne.”
As for the controversy artists such as Britney Spears and Amy Winehouse find themselves in, Perry said, “If we can all stay alive, that would be best. I just (don’t) understand why we can’t do our jobs and show up.”
