Freddie Mercury Club have uploaded a rare video of Mercury revealing that Queen were still together in 1984 for the money, and that his Queen bandmate Brian May would likely lie if he answered the same question about what kept the band together. Freddie Mercury also revealed the worst disease in the world, and it wasn’t AIDS. The Freddie Club wrote:
Interviewer: What do you think has kept the band together…for so many years?
I love how Fred already knows what his answer’s gonna be before the interviewer has even finished his question.
That naughty look in his eyes and mischievous smile on his face as he looks and nods at the man with a cup in his hands all cool and collected like a BOSS.
Like he’s hearing an old joke for the 100th time and he’s just waiting to add his punchline. And his side smile…too damn gorgeous to handle. A Freddie Mercury bandmate revealed a ‘naughty’ video of him on his birthday.
Interviewer: That doesn’t seem to be the motivating force for many other bands.
Freddie: Oh we love the money. If they say that they don’t like the money, they’re talking out of their ass.
Damn right! It’s so satisfying to hear such honest truthful answers & see Freddie put the man in his place. And the way he says “ass” with that attitude…so sassy I wanna die.
Freddie: To be honest I’m sure Brian would say “in the end we want to be respected as musicians.”
I love how he subtly points to the self-righteous, respectable & cliched “talk” common among musicians such as his own bandmate when he knows it’s business for them more than anything. Oh Freddie if only you knew how time and money would unmask those “respected musicians”…but it seems like you already knew.
Freddie: I don’t want to change people’s lives by the music. I just want people, after I’m finished, to say “Queen were a band that came out with good music and people enjoyed their music and had fun.”
Words of wisdom…and you and your music still make us happy all the time. And darling you really DID change our lives more than you realize.
Freddie: And I certainly don’t wanna give up now. I have nothing else to do.
He might as well add “I’m not a very good housewife.” 😂 I love him and the face he makes. A Freddie Mercury smoking photo with Michael Jackson was revealed last weekend.
P.S. I wish I could see the interviewer’s face during all this…expecting to have a routine interview receiving the same old formulaic answers everyone gives him but Freddie Mercury is no ordinary man and he plays by nobody’s rules except his own.”
