!! OMG, quote of the day: Sacha Baron Cohen explains why he left that Freddie Mercury biopic !!


“There are amazing stories about Freddie Mercury. The guy was wild,” he said. “He was living an extreme lifestyle [of] debauchery. There are stories of little people with plates of cocaine on their heads walking around a party.

They are a band, they want to protect their legacy as a band, they want it to be about Queen. And I fully understand that. [After] my first meeting, I should never have carried on because a member of the band – I won’t say who – he said, ‘This is such a great movie because such an amazing thing happens in the middle of the movie.’

I go, ‘What happens in the middle of the movie?’ He goes, ‘Freddie dies.’ I go, ‘So you mean, it’s a bit like Pulp Fiction, the end is the middle, and the middle is the end? That’s interesting.’ He goes, ‘No no no.’

So I said, ‘Wait a minute, what happens in the second half of the movie?’ And he said, ‘Well, we see how the band carries on from strength to strength.’ And I said, ‘Listen, not one person is going to see a movie where the lead character dies from AIDS, and then you carry on to see [what happens to the band].”

Sacha Baron Cohen on The Howard Stern Show discussing why he left the untitled Freddie Mercury biopic project in 2013, before apparently returning in 2015, and then leaving again.

!! OMG, Thank God It’s Christmas: Freddie Mercury’s Lost Holiday Home Videos !!

We came across this behind-the-scenes footage of Queen filming their second last video for “I’m Going Slightly Mad” with some penguins, along with personal home video taken by Freddie Mercury the morning after Christmas, hanging out with friends in his state-of-the-art late-1980’s house aka “The Garden Lodge”.
A woman that looks like the lovechild of Leslie Hall and “Margo” from Beyond The Black Rainbow chatting with some of Freddie’s friends, and Feddie’s cat Tiffany kind of steal the show in these tapes. Check out the vintage hi-8 clips after the jump, along with Queen‘s Xmas track “Thank God It’s Christmas”!
