Katy Perry Reveals Inspiration For Fragrance Brand Name

Katy Perry has opened up about the inspiration behind her fragrance brand Killer Queen. Speaking with Women's Wear Daily, the pop star said she has always been a fan of the classic rockers Queen and honored the band by naming the scent after their hit song:

"Killer Queen has been in my vocabulary since I was 15, because of the song 'Killer Queen' by Queen."

"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 my company 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."

She adds: "Killer Queen is powerful, edgy, sophisticated - and that's exactly where I'm trying to be now with my music. There were two different aspects in creating the fragrance. It's almost like [using] two different parts of your brain - the packaging and bottle and marketing, but essentially all that doesn't matter unless you have the juice."
