Katy Perry pays tribute to Katycat killed in car accident

Olivia 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— #ripkatycatKatie (@katyperry) March 28, 2017 Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.
