Love of a lifetime!
About the life of Queen singer Freddie mercury still legends, and sometimes difficult to understand what is true and what is not. But there is one interesting fact from his biography, the veracity of which nobody doubts: singer doted cats
Love of a lifetime began in the ‘ 70s, when the musician’s girlfriend, Mary Austin, bought him two fuzzies: Tom and Jerry. When an artist went on tour, he called home, and Mary brought the cats up to the phone so he could talk to them, informs Rus.Media.
This is confirmed by the personal assistant Peter Freestone in his memoirs:
“Mary brought a Tom and Jerry turns to the handset, so that they could hear Freddie. This went on for years with other cats who lived in his houses”.
These furry creatures have become for the artist a real family. According to some, just as Freddie was about 10 cats. Every Christmas he was concerned that according to the holiday traditions of all pupils got a sock, filled to the brim with gifts.
The head of the official fan club Queen Jacqui Smith said that most of the Pets came to mercury from shelters. In the UK there is a charitable organization “Blue cross”, which is aimed at the treatment of sick animals. Least two cats he just took.
If a cat owner buys pet toys and good food, the rock star dedicates a song. As it turned out, the solo album of Freddie’s “Mr Bad Guy” was dedicated to the cat Jerry and others shaggy, as well as “to all cat-lovers in the Universe.”
In the last recorded with the group the album “Innuendo” has a song “Delilah”. At first it seems like it is dedicated to some girl, but then it becomes clear that it is about a cat (Delilah was his favorite). This song is the guitar solo Brian Mayana (also a cat owner) that resembles the “meow”.
The song says that Delilah was the mistress of the house singer, and it’s true. The head of the Queen fan club said:
“This cat was a character, she was a real lady. Someone thought she was a bully, someone funny, but she always got on her knees to Freddy’s first”.
Partner, mercury has reaffirmed this particular relationship, arguing that the musician Delilah was “a little Princess”. Jim Hutton admitted:
“Freddie treated cats as their own children. He could through them to quarrel, and if one of the cats would cause harm, while Freddy no house, let help this man heaven. The day of cats were running around the house and the adjacent territory, and at night some of us collected them and put inside”.
Where mercury went on a tour, the actor always brought gifts to my cats. Musician ordered expensive high quality food from Germany because in the UK this was not.
The last portrait of Freddie dressed in a vest with cats donated by Donald Mackenzie. If you look closely, you can see that it shows all the cats the lead singer of Queen. In the same vest he starred in his last video “These Are The Days Of Our Lives”.
Not only mercury loved these magical creatures. In 2011, the house appeared Lagerfeld cat Choupette, which sunk the famous fashion designer to the heart. Rumor has it that she inherits 3 million dollars!
