Freddie Mercury’s Biographer Reveals How He Felt About Fame

Freddie Mercury’s biographer Lesley-Ann Jones says that the late Queen frontman once told her that he felt “imprisoned” by fame. An updated version of the 2011 biography, Bohemian Rhapsody: The Definitive Biography of Freddie Mercury, was a bestseller. The Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, starring Rami Malek as Mercury, was a box office success with a three-week box office tally of $127 million. In an interview with Billboard, Jones said she never imagined, even in her most elaborate dreams, that this book would make the Sunday Times bestsellers, seven years on. A former Fleet Street journalist who also authored biographies of David Bowie and Marc Bolan, Jones described the book on Mercury as “a labor of love.” “I adored the man. It’s thrilling that so many people are now getting to read his unexpurgated story,” she added. Jones also said that the flamboyant entertainer had a desire for “anonymity and normality” for much of his life. Mercury died of complications from AIDS on in November, 1991.
