KATY PERRY owes her success to FREDDIE MERCURY - because he inspired her to become a star.

The I Kissed A Girl hitmaker looked up to Mercury - who died in 1991 - from a young age and cites his no-nonsense attitude as a big influence.

Perry says, "Freddie Mercury from Queen was - and remains - my biggest influence.

"The combination of his sarcastic approach to writing lyrics and his 'I don't give a f**k' attitude really inspired my music."

Exactly. Queen music really inspires and touches people.

Beatles Music can never inspire and touch people to the same degree.

Are you really going to say the song "I wanna hold your hand" is the equivalent to "Love of My Life"? I don't think so.

No, but it is better than Don't try suicide. And I think Strawberry fields forever is better than LOML.
