Is there any worldwide or local (in your country) celebrities who are real Queen fans (or maybe OIQFC members even)?

If you know about someone - post his/her name here.

Brazilian famous F1 racer Ayrton Senna was one of the Queen fans. And years after his death caused by car crash in 1994, the album titled "Tribute to Senna" was released, which includes "I Want It All".
Besides, opera singer Luciano Pavarotti was one of Freddie's friends and fans and I hear he praised "Too Much Love Will Kill You" highly...

The controversial goalkeeper Jose Luis Chilavert from Paraguay is also a Queen fan.

Mike Myers admitted that he will always remember the first time he heard 'Bohemian Rhapsody' on the radio, and that's why he decided to include it on 'Wayne's World'. I don't know if he's actually a fan.

As for musicians who are HARD-CORE fans... Axl Rose, Taylor Hawkins, Gary Cherone, Nuno Bettancourt, Taylor Hawkins, Robbie Willams, George Michael, Dave Grohl and (believe it or not) Garth Brooks.

As for musicians who have either admitted the Queen influence on them, or have praised them on interviews... Kurt Cobain, Seal, Billy Corgan, Metallica, Paul Young, Zucchero, Sheryl Crowe, Jon Bon Jovi, Lisa Stansfield, Katie Melua, Sebastian Bach, Michael Stipe, Slash, Sum 41, Lilix, Muse, Mandy Moore, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Cypress Hill.

Harry Connick Jr was recently on a program mentioning Freddie Mercury as one of his favorite performers.

I don't recall the conversation exactly, but he had a fair amount to say on the subject. Freddie was the topic, he didn't just throw the name out as part of a list of favorite performers.

The program was looking back at events in the year 1991.

Jane Saunders of "French and Saunders" fame.
Ben Elton flew her out to Vegas to see the musical as she is a big fan of Queen (was in our Aussie magazines, along with some cool photos) - including the after show gig.
