Here are some of my favorite Freddie Mercury quotes! I hope you like them too!
•Listen, if you guys wanna move around and shift your assess a little, that's okay by us. You can take all your clothes off if you like, too. It doesn't matter. . . Fuck off!
•I always knew I was a star , and now the rest of the world seems to agree with me.
•Gay as a daffodil.
•Hello everybody! Hey hey hey! Okay! You know, it's not always we do shows in the daytime and I fucking wish we'd done it before. I can see you all now! And we have some real beauties here I can tell you!
•I hate pockets in trousers... By the way, I do not wear a hose. My hose is my own. No coke bottle, nothing stuffed down there.
•A concert is not a live rendition of our album. It's a theatrical event.
•We have no such thing as a budget anymore. Our manager freaks when we show him the bill. We're lavish to the bone, but all our money goes back into the product.
•Listen to me lovies!
•I dress to kill, but tastefully.
•I have fun with my clothes onstage; it's not a concert you're seeing, it's a fashion show.
•We're gonna stay together until we fucking well die, I'm sure of it. I keep - I must tell you - I keep trying to leave but they won't let me. We're not bad for four aging queens really, are we? What do you think?
•I'm just a musical prostitute, my dear.
•I'm not into buisness at all.
•I never tie my own shoelace, I mean never. It's not a thing done in rock 'n' roll!
•If we're weird onstage, I don't know what you'd call the Tubes.
•Is Billy Idol doing a bad Elvis pout, or was he born that way?
•We're just four old ladies still rocking out.
•One night Roger was in a foul mood and he threw his entire bloody drumset across the stage. The thing just missed me - I might have been killed.
•Onstage I am a devil, but I'm hardly a social reject.
•Keep going 'till I fucking drop.
•I guess I've always lived the glamorous life of a star. It's nothing new, - I used to spend down to the last dime.
•The reason we're successful darling? My overall charisma of course.
•We're fussy and finnicky and have very high standards. If a song can't be done properly, we'd rather it isn't done at all.
•I just like having fun. It's a very good release, rock music, but you know you say that I am a different person on stage and that same thing could be said of anyone going out to do his job. It's my work and I'm very serious about it, getting it right.
•I'm possessed by love- but isn't everybody?
•We're a very expensive group: we break a lot of rules. It's unheard of to combine a opera with a rock theme, my dear.
•(at a concert where the audience got drunk on the tequila next door and throwing any thing on hand at anyone, forcing Queen to call it a night without performing, Freddie said this while leaving the stage)
Adios amigos, you motherfuckers!
What's one of the worst things about being a performer?
Well, I hate talking to people like you.
•Who wants to live forever?
•I'm very emotional; I think I may go mad in several years time.
•When I'm performing I'm an extrovert, yet inside I'm a completely different man.
•(after performing I Want To Break Free in drag to some very. . . Catholic people, but getting through it)
I thought I was gonna be stoned to death!
•The lavish presentation appeals to me, and I've got to convince the others.
•When I'm dead, I want to be remembered as a musician of some worth and substance.
•Years ago, I thought up the name Queen. It's just a name. But it's regal, obviously, and it sounds splendid.
•I want to lead the Victorian life, surrounded by exquisite clutter.
•You know, I designed the Queen crest. I simply combined all the creatures that represent our star signs - and I don't even believe in astrology.
•We've all got massive egos my dear.
• Does it mean this, does it mean that, that's all anybody wants to know. Fuck them, darling. I'll tell you what any decent poet would say if you dared ask him to analyze his work: If you see it, dear, then it's there.
•Excess is part of my nature. Dullness is a disease. I really need danger and excitement. I'm never scared of putting myself out on a limb.
•If I lost everything tomorrow I'd claw my way back to the top somehow.
•I don't have any aspirations to live to 70. I don't want to sound morbid. I've lived a full life and if I'm dead tomorrow, I don't give a damn. I've done it all I really have.
•I like to ridicule myself. I don't take it too seriously. I wouldn't wear these clothes if I was serious. The one thing that keeps me going is that I like to laugh at myself.
•If I didn't do this I wouldn't have anything to do. I can't cook. I'm not any good at being a housewife.
•I'm a human being. I'd like people to recognise the fact I'm a human being.
•I suppose the way we tackled our career sounds clinical and calculating. But our egos couldn't handle anything but the best.
•When I look back on all the black nail varnish and stuff I think, God, what did I do? I used to feel a need for all that on stage. It made me more secure. But now I don't. I've grown up a bit.
•We're seeking perfection, even if we know it's virtually impossible to find.
•People are apprehensive when they meet me. They think I'm going to eat them.
•I think my melodies are superior to my lyrics.
•It destroys the soil to hear that you're all hype, that you have no talent, and that your whole career has been contrived.
•We've gone overboard on every Queen album. But that's Queen.
•Money may not buy happiness, but it can damn well give it!
•Modern paintings are like women: You'll never enjoy them if you try to understand them.
•Fuck tomorrow, it's today, dear.
And my all-time favorite
•I won't be a rock star; I will be a legend.
