Freddie Mercury Crazy Parties

Now the legendary band Queen became widely famous in their time for noisy parties - outrageous, crazy and simply unreal!

The infamous hangout at the Fairmont Hotel in New Orleans

In 1978, Queen threw a legendary get-together dedicated to the release of the Jazz album. Completely naked waiters and waitresses, an artist biting off the heads of live chickens, naked models, a whole army of gnomes with trays of cocaine mountains tied to their heads ...

All this was very different from what Freddie saw in his childhood, which he spent in a strict Indian school before running away to London with his family at the age of eight ...

"350 bottles of champagne, 250 broken glasses!"

Freddie was drowning in allegations of excessive drug use, an immoral lifestyle ... But he did not betray his interests even after he contracted HIV.

The star celebrated her 41st birthday in Ibiza, at the Pikes Hotel. And it was the wildest party the island has ever seen! Later, its inhabitants recalled how the festive fireworks could be seen 100 miles from Mallorca!

700 guests were invited, including: Kylie Minogue, Jon Bon Jovi, Boy George…

During the evening, a staggering amount of champagne was drunk - 350 bottles of Moet & Chandon! The manager of Queen, Jim Beach, especially “liked” the evening, who was given an invoice for 232 broken glasses!

Party with Princess Diana, Michael Jackson... and a llama

By the mid-80s, Queen had reached the peak of their popularity! And the group started hanging out with members of the royal family... Rumor has it that once Freddie sneaked Princess Diana into a gay club! Disguised in a hat and sunglasses, Diana spent an unforgettable night at the Royal Vauxhall tavern!

In addition to Princess Diana, Freddie was friends with the King of Pop Michael Jackson! True, not for long...

In 1983, while recording together, Jackson literally pushed the Mercury to the edge ... Here is what Jim Beach later said:

“I got a call from an excited Freddie and said that he no longer wants to record with Michael! Allegedly, he brought his home llama to the studio every day ... He begged to stop recording ... "

At the same time, there were rumors that it was Michael who stopped recording after he caught Freddie using cocaine ...

Personal life

All his life, Freddie struggled with his bisexuality: he had a love for both women and men ... Critics believe that the legendary composition "Bohemian Rhapsody" is just about this ...

In total, in the artist's life there were two women whom he truly loved: Mary Austin and Barbara Valentine.

For Freddie, Mary was a kind of wife, an incredibly close and important person ... It was to her that Mercury bequeathed his fees.

As for Barbara, her pomposity and bright personality fully corresponded to the image and lifestyle of Freddie himself.

Relatives of the musician spoke about this couple like this:

“They were worth each other ... Both explosive, reckless ... In the end, this lifestyle took over Freddie. He has lost control of himself...

Later, Freddie began a relationship with a hairdresser Jim Hutton, who took care of him when his health deteriorated noticeably ... Together they lived the last six years of their lives ...

When Freddie died, Jim was at his bedside. It is said that Freddie allegedly took his last breath by wearing the engagement ring that Jim gave him.

Obsessed cat lover!

Freddie had a great love for ... homeless cats! He kept many of them as pets. Rumor has it that during the tour, the artist called home every day to find out how his pets were doing and to hear them ...

Relatives of the musician said that Freddie's house was like a museum! Mercury collected stamps, Japanese art and other unique items!

Last days of life...

The last months of Freddie's life were aimed at fighting AIDS ... Having conquered the whole world, the leader of Queen was bedridden ...

Freddie Mercury died in November 1991. The musical world was devastated: it lost its true icon...
