“On Christmas morning Tony King came round and gave me this pillowcase. As you read in the book my drag name is Sharon. Rod Stuart is Phillis and Freddie was Melina. In this beautiful pillowcase was this watercolor by Henry Scott Tuke. In the note that went with it said, ‘Dear Sharon, I saw this at auction and thought you would love it. I love you, Malena’.”
As Sir Elton began to shed a tear while reciting his emotional memory, he said: “You can imagine how much I cried. It was really moving. He was dying and he still thought of his friends and he bought me this. I still have it on its easel and I still have the pillowcase next to my bed. That is the kind of person he was. He was so so full of love and life. I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone quite like that.” Freddie Mercury ‘terrified’ Elton John in bedroom with AIDS.

One social media user via Reddit stated: “The one-two punch was so awful. His announcement was big news (though not entirely a surprise) and then the very next day I was driving and they were playing We Are The Champions then the DJ came on to say he was dead. My parents were in England when it happened and came back and said it was like the entire royal family had been massacred or something, it was such big news.
The user continued by saying: “My mom asked me to show her some Queen videos and we watched a documentary MTV was playing almost every night- The Magic Years. My mom turned to me afterward and said: “I think that is my favorite human being ever.” Her birthday is in 3 days. Hope she is living it up with Freddie up in heaven.” Freddie Mercury & George Harrison cocaine secret was also just revealed.
