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."
