Los Angeles: Pop star Katy Perry finds singer Bruno Mars immensely talented and wants to collaborate with him.

The 28-year-old `Roar` hitmaker, who admires the `Treasure` singer, hopes she get to work with him on a track, reported E! Online.

"I`ve always said I`d wanna collaborate with Rihanna, but I`d love to collaborate with Bruno Mars," Perry said.

"I always said, `When I grow up, I wanna be the female version of Bruno Mars,` cause he`s so wildly talented in showing everybody that he has so much diversity in him," she added.

Mars` two albums, `Doo-Wops and Hooligans` and `Unorthodox Jukebox`, have received critical acclaim. Pery recently announced that her next release `Walking on Air` from her upcoming album Prism will hit iTunes on September 30.

The album is slated to release this October.
