Los Angeles, CA (BANG) – Katy Perry wears her grandmother’s clothes. The “I Kissed A Girl” singer has no qualms about wearing items from her elderly relative’s wardrobe, insisting she will don anything if she thinks it suits her.
She said: “It doesn’t matter who makes it, where it comes from, whether it’s your grandmother’s closet or it’s a couture showroom. If it looks good on you, wear it!”
The 24-year-old singer also revealed she takes fashion tips from Freddie Mercury, adding the late Queen frontman – who was famed for his lavish stage costumes – inspires her to take risks with her clothes.
She said: “Style wise, I really look up to Freddie Mercury. He’s probably the person who inspires me the most.”
Katy has previously admitted Freddie – who died aged 45 in November 1991 after losing his battle with AIDS – is the reason she decided to pursue a career in music, because she loved his outgoing attitude.
She said: “Freddie Mercury 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.”
