Katy Perry picks ten women who 'changed her life'

Katy Perry has unveiled a list of ten women who have found a profound impact on her life.

The singer has teamed up with Glamour to compile the run-down, which features the likes of Jenny Slate, Kacey Musgraves and Petra Collins.

Speaking about Musgraves, Perry said: "Kacey is one of the most unique songwriters I've heard in the past decade.

"She puts into words what the heart feels. (Download 'Merry Go 'Round' or 'Follow Your Arrow' to listen.) And she's not bad on the eyes and has a great sense of humour the whole way through."

Check out the full list of inspirational women below:

1. Jenny Slate
Comedian
Jenny starred in my favourite film of 2014, Obvious Child, and guest-stars on one of my favourite TV shows, Kroll Show. I think every woman can relate to her dark, unfiltered approach to comedy (and to her delightful Twitter feed, @jennyslate).

2. Mia Moretti
DJ
Mia has razzmatazz seeping out of every pore, and she can curate your wardrobe or your playlist with a bat of her lashes. She's the muse for my song "International Smile."

3. Allison Williams
Actress, HBO's Girls
Allison was born for this business. Even her effortless airport style would take me four hours to replicate. I can't wait to see her established as a household name in all things TV and film - especially because she's such a good human.

4. Kacey Musgraves 
Musician
Kacey is one of the most unique songwriters I've heard in the past decade. She puts into words what the heart feels. (Download "Merry Go 'Round" or "Follow Your Arrow" to listen.) And she's not bad on the eyes and has a great sense of humour the whole way through.

5. Sophia Rossi
Cofounder, HelloGiggles
Sophia is one of my favorite pop-culture commentators. In addition to being incredibly Internet-savvy - see for yourself on her website, hellogiggles.com - she's also a people curator: She knows how to pair people in jobs, friendship, and life.

6. Cleo Wade
Artist
Cleo is a poetic princess and an incredibly spirited artist. (Check out her work on Instagram @cleowade.) I am always encouraged by her perspective on life. PS: She looks like an angel.

7. Petra Collins
Photographer
Petra Collins is only 22 but has an eye that seems to have already lived many lives. Her approach is youthful, nostalgic, soft, sweet. Plus, she makes great neon art. Follow her on Instagram @petrafcollins.

8. Vicky Vlachonis
Osteopath
Vicky has taught me that what you put in your body connects to your emotions. (Read about her approach in The Body Doesn't Lie.) She helps me find my centre again.

9. Cindy Sherman
Artist
Hands down, she's one of the most important artists of our time. Cindy is her own one-woman show. I admire the sense of humour and self-deprecation in her work.

10. Shannon Woodward
Actress, HBO's Westworld
Shannon's an incredibly conscious, thought-provoking actress, a best friend to me for over a decade, and a wonderful activist for women's rights. And she enjoys the crossword puzzle immensely. Follow her on Twitter, @shannonwoodward, to keep you LOL-ing.
