    Pop diva Katy Perry will star in a film about her own life this July in the form of Katy Perry: Part of Me but the singer is also reportedly gunning to play Mary Austin, the girlfriend of the late, great Freddie Mercury of Queen in the biopic about his life. Sacha Baron Cohen is playing Mercury.

    A source told The Mirror that Perry wants the role, saying, "Katy would love to be in the film as she is such a huge fan. She would want to play Mary Austin ideally. Katy has a similar look to Mary and would be a brilliant foil to Sacha."

    Austin and Mercury were together for about six years in the 1970s and she remained close to him after they split and up until the end of his life.

    Do you think Katy Perry is right for this role?
