"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.

- Katy Perry, remembering the extraordinary muscial contributions of Freddie on his birthday in the October issue of Cosmopolitan magazine.
