Katy Perry has named her new perfume 'Killer Queen' after the Queen song of the same name. Apparently, the song had a profound impact on her as a teenager.

She says, quote, "Freddie Mercury painted the lyrics of this woman who I wanted to be.  She seemed very powerful, and she captivated a room when she walked in.  I named [it] Killer Queen after those lyrics.

"I feel like, after all this time, it was appropriate to use that name in association with something I did.  I feel like I'm falling, finally, into that woman Freddie painted."

So, uh, by the way...that woman Freddie painted...was a WHORE.  Literally.

In 1974, Freddie said, quote, "['Killer Queen'] is about a high-class call girl.  I'm trying to say that classy people can be whores as well.

"That's what the song is about, although I'd prefer people to put their own interpretation upon it...to read into it what they like."  (It's unclear if Katy is aware of this or if it's just an AWESOME coincidence.)
