QOTSA Frontman Says He's a Katy Perry Fan
During last week's (September 6) iTunes Festival performance in London, Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme gave somewhat of a praise to pop singer Katy Perry. As NME reports, Homme "declared himself a fan" of the singer while questioning the character of what he described as an "iTunes audience." "They told me this is an iTunes audience. They said, some people may look at you and say, 'Goddamn I wish it was Katy Perry,'" the frontman said. "If it's an iTunes audience, it's an audience that just loves music... This audience is going to get drunk, get high and they're going to have sex with each other. iTunes is just here to watch." Katy on the other hand recently praised late great Queen frontman Freddie Mercury as possibly her greatest music influence. "Queen's track 'Killer Queen' made me discover music and helped me come into my own at the age of 15," she told Cosmopolitan magazine. "The way Freddie Mercury delivered his lyrics just made me feel like a confident woman; I'd say his fingerprint is all over me in general. And I also love the idea of a woman who reigns and has power, like Queen Elizabeth in the UK." QOTSA are currently busy promoting their latest chart-topping effort "...Like Clockwork." Perry scored major success with her latest single "Roar," scoring No. 1 spot debuts in both UK and US.
