Rebecca

Blossom calls herself a "queen" so as to make herself feel good and as a way to express her confidence. This is common slang to use to make yourself feel good or to make others feel good. Typically, "king" is intended for males. Ex: Yes, queen! You killed the performance. => "to kill [something"] is slang for "you did really well." Ex: You look like a king in that fit. => "fit" means "outfit"
