I did'nt realize she was a huge Freddie fan.....
Do you have conscious influences? Do you ever say like, ‘I’m going to try to write a song that sounds like Prince today?
Yeah. I’m a huge fan of Freddie Mercury. I’m a fan of lots of music, but he was a turning point. I wasn’t allowed to listen to secular music when I was kid, but there was a time when I was hanging out at my friend’s house. We’re trying on all our outfits, like girls do, and out of nowhere I heard the lyrics to “Killer Queen.” Time stood still. The music was totally different from anything I’d heard. I still love Freddie Mercury. He was flamboyant with atwist of the operatic, but more importantly he just didn’t give a fuck. link
I saw that woman on TRL with this hideous strapless corset-booty shorts jumpsuit thing with heart appliqués all over the ass. I wanted to vomit.
On that note, it is kind of interesting that she's a Queen fan.. I read that on her Wikipedia article a while ago. Hm. I didn't hear any Queen musical influence in "I Kissed a Girl". :V
