Katy Perry pays tribute to Katycat killed in car accident

Katy Perry pays tribute to Katycat killed in car accidentOlivia BeeKaty Perry has paid special tribute to an 18-year-old superfan who died tragically in a car accident.

According to KTBS-TV in Shreveport, Louisiana, 18-year-old Katie Bell died this past weekend when she lost control of her car and collided head-on with another vehicle.  The other driver was also killed. 

According to Billboard, news of Bell’s death inspired the hashtag #RIPKatycatKatie — Katy Perry fans call themselves “KatyCats” — and Katy herself took notice.

Tuesday morning, the star tweeted, “We see you angel and we love and will miss you. KC’s, light a candle for Katie. Rest In Peace.”  She included one of Bell’s videos in her tweet. 

Most touching, though, is the fact that Katy has changed her Twitter handle to #ripkatycatKatie‏.

We see you angel and we love and will miss you. KC’s, light a candle for Katie. Rest In Peace. 😔 https://t.co/0SxDFfOub5
