RIP freddie mercury: living on my own

saw a documentary on him the other night, and i was thinking how funny that as a young boy, it never occurred to me that freddie mercury was gay. i mean the band’s name, his elaborate outfits, etc. were all obvious cues… the fans, as with most rock bands, were quite manly and it’s funny to imagine the dilemmas he had to go through in his performances. in any case, he was a genius and as cheesy as this pop song may sound i have to say when i heard it and saw the video (for the first time last night) i kinda liked it. there is something terribly sad and beautiful about freddie mercury. by dd
