What i find most disturbing is how the press and media hounded Freddie in his last days....
Even in his last day of life he was hounded.
One of Freddies former personal assistants, Paul Prenter sold his story to the SUN newspaper, Prenter's lurid revelations spotlighted Freddies wild days, Prenter had also provided private photographs of Freddie entwinded with a selection of his past male lovers.
Prenter also claiming that Freddie had recently telephoned him in a panic that he might have AIDS.
Freddie instead went to Ibiza to get away from it all.
Barbara Valentine (one of Freddies lovers and close friend) saw the appearance of large dark red marks on Freddies face and hands. These were outward signs of the illness's usual development of Kaposi's Sarcoma - or KS - an otherwise rare cancer.
So did Freddie have cancer too?
I have read somewhere on QZ about the illness Kaposi Sarcoma even saw photos.
When Freddie first found out that he had AIDS the only two people he told at the time was Jim and Mary, he later told the band in 1990-1991 but ofcourse Brian, Roger and John knew there was something wrong with there band mate.

Makes me sick to see that the press enjoys hounding Freddie, he was a very good sercet keeper and never complained about his achs and pains and just got on with it till he couldnt anymore.

Paul Prenter died of AIDS himself shortly before Freddie did, he was wrong to sell that story and Freddie didnt want anything to do with him after that.

I just want to say that Freddie had ALOT to deal with and telling the world about this illness was REALLY scary for him, he found it hard to even open up to his band mates, family and close friends.

Freddie Mercury is a extremest to the rock world he carryed on even in the impossable times he fighted his illness till it was time to pass away, he gave his all right from the beggining right till the end.

Very instresting post
ooops sorry about my spelling but i say this very comforting post :)

And the Press hound famous stars no matter who they are
Like Lady diane they say press was hounding them some say they was drinking and driving
Noone know the truth


That is why Freddie left everything to the last min to those newpapers
Alot of fans must have known he was ill
and myself i thought nah no way he isnt he is having a rest then he be back but with shock he was dying that was very sad
but the clock cannot be turn back
with freddie being ill or not the press will always hound him just like other bands or stars

If freddie was alive now i wondered what queen would have been doing what songs would they write and more tours too also they would have done Live 8 too
but sadly things have change
I Feel that when freddie became very ill what was going on in his mind he must have wishes he didnt do all this to cause AIDS but too Late
What get me is most stars take their life like drugs shoot themself hang them self
but freddie all he did was enjoyed life ( he should have use SAFE SEX ) but nah and look where is he
i say rest in peace mr mercury we shall carry your music on :)

You cannot blame the press that is their living too if there wasnt 1 we wouldnt know what was happening in the world ? would we
i agree hounding isnt right but like fans they hounds stars :) work both ways



I am just a Queen Fan and the show must go on

Freddie was very couragous, and very brave...He was also a very private person and for that guy to go to the papers he shit on freddie from a great height!!! But he learnt his lesson from then on..thats why the papers hounded him. They hated the fact that he had control over them and was secretive. But i back freddie 110%. I know the reporters and papers have a job to do, But even when things are good they still had to write something shit about him..! He was in total control right up to the end, He even chose his time to die, As mary said in her OK magazine interview " He looked death right in the face and said okay im ready" that was freddie all over...Very brave and very in control... And as for the papers...I think it was one of them maybe Daily mirror or something where one of there editors was in a accident which killed him..and as i quote from Jim huttons book he was coming out of Garden lodge one day and he was asked "how is Freddie?" and he said "Better than (that persons name)" HAHA Which was very funny so they managed to get back at the paper that day...I hate the papers and so did freddie...But that is part of being a celebrity, getting hounded by the press..I mean look at dear princess diana..She was hounded 24/7, the papers had the wrong perseption of freddie..Made him out to be this flamboyant gay guy who just loved to party and take drugs this that and the other..Yeah fair enough he did like to take the odd drug and have a drink and have a good time...But they never thought of mentioning what the real freddie mercury was, the really caring and very generous and heartfelt guy who loved company with his inner circle and he loved being loved by his closest friends and family, But ahh well..we all know the truth freddie...So the papers can rot in hell for all i care..!!!

Paul Prenter wasn't Freddie's personal assistant. He was QUEEN's personal manager. Freddie's doctor told Mary that he has AIDS, and Mary is the one who told Freddie. He basically denied it, even to himself.

Yeah he did to start with...I quote from Mercury and me that Freddie Rung up Jim and said to him that he is to come over because the doctors had ripped a lump out of him :( Very sad
