We've never understood why tightly laced corsets and powdered wigs were things that queens put up with wearing. If we were in charge, those constricting garments would be the first to go. Katy Perry makes that fantasy a reality in a new ad teaser for Killer Queen, her third fragrance that's appropriately shaped like a scepter and set to release this fall. In the 30-second video clip, Perry shreds her regal dress with a dagger, flings away a lofty, powdered wig, and rips jewels off her neck (this last part seems a bit sacrilegious). Click to watch the raven-haired singer metaphorically "roar" her way out of every royal stereotype. Gasping lords and dukes included.
