Thursday, September 5th 1946, Stone Town, Zanzibar.

Today, 71 years ago, was born the man who completely changed my life! 

Today, after so many years of passion and love, I’d like to tell him that I miss him  terribly, that he’s always my greatest joy, that his voice cures my sad days, that he is and will always be irreplaceable, unique. 

Today, Fred, I want to tell you that you’re loved by so many, that the memory of you will never be forgotten, that you changed the music universe and you still inspire a lot of people. 

Today your star shines a little more.

Happy birthday, my love! I was born to love you❤♛

Dear Freddie...

…you are one of the biggest inspirations I’ve ever had in this life. You make me happy every day, make me feel safe when I am scared and you never make me feel alone. You are such a talented man with a beautiful soul. How often I think about you; how often I wish I could just tell you how much I adore you.

 You are perfect in every way possible - you have the kindest eyes I’ve ever seen, the most adorable smile, a flawless appearance, a fabulous humour, a magnificent personality and a breathtaking voice. 

Even though your body may not be on this earth anymore, your spirit carries on through every word you’ve written, every tone you’ve played and every song you’ve performed. I just know you are here for everyone who needs you, every single person you’ve inspired. 

All I really want to say is thank you. Thank you for everything that you’ve done for me. For every time you’ve helped me out of my sadness. For every time you gave me motivation and courage through your songs. For every time you made me feel secure and loved. For every time you made me feel beautiful and brave. I cannot thank you enough.

Anyway, darling. I just want you to know how much I love you and how much of an influence you have on my life. There’s not a single day I don’t think about you and I am so very proud to be your fan. I love you.

Happy 71st birthday, my angel…

Dear Freddie,


On this day, you were born. This day is important to me for just that reason. Your music has changed my life. Your songs inspire me every time I listen to them. The lyrics you write mean so much to me and help me make it through each long day. When nobody is there for me, I always have your music. Your songs are there to cheer me up or to tell me I need to believe in myself and keep going. I can always count on your brilliance to make my day better. With just one note, I can be moved to tears by your voice. The lyrics to your songs mean more because of your amazing voice. But it’s not only your music that has helped me. You’re personality has taught me a lot. You’ve showed me to live my life however I want and to have that “I don’t give a fuck” attitude. You kept on doing what you wanted even when the media tried to tear you down. I realized that I can’t let others tell me how to live my life. I’ve learned from you that I need to just do what I love no matter what others say. Thank you, Freddie, for giving this world music that can change a person’s life. Thank you for letting us know that we should never let anyone change us. And thank you for just doing what you love because you have had such a large impact on many people’s lives including my own. I love you, my dear Freddie. Happy birthday!


Freddie Mercury~September 5, 1946-Forever

70 years ago today in Stone Town, Zanzibar, my favorite person was born.
Farrokh Bulsara, a boy that would grow up to be a legend. A man with the most powerful and extraordinary voice. The beautiful and captivating human being that we know as Freddie Mercury.

He is my inspiration and my role model. He gave me a new life. If there’s one thing that never fails to cheer me up, it’s him. He has changed my life in such a beautiful way.

Most people know Freddie for his masterpiece, Bohemian Rhapsody, but he contributed much more to the world than that.

He was a genius when it came to songwriting but he was also an extremely charismatic frontman and he put on a show with the way that he would strut around the stage in a theatrical form. He’s known to be one of the greatest frontmen of all time. 

He was an amazing pianist, which he didn’t believe, I’ll never understand why. He could also paint and draw, his work is incredible. He was fucking fabulous. He’s still fucking fabulous. I mean, look at the stuff that he wore! Fab.

He did things that no one has ever done, things that can’t and won’t be done again. Like bringing opera and ballet to rock and roll.

He rode on the shoulders of Darth Vader, Santa and Superman multiple times. Who else has done that?
He even performed with The Royal Ballet.

Freddie was incredibly strong. He continued to make music until he literally couldn’t anymore. He was in the studio when he could barely stand. That’s how dedicated he was to his music and to his fans. He didn’t want to leave this earth without giving everything that he could. I admire the strength that he had.

His life was cut short but it’s not like he didn’t live it to the full. He always said that all he wanted in life was to be happy and have a good time and from what I’ve seen and heard, that’s exactly what he did and he didn’t give a shit about what people thought of him.

It’s weird because it doesn’t always feel like he’s gone. He was filled with so much energy and had such a powerful presence, I guess that’s what makes me feel like he’s still around. He’s forever alive in our hearts.

The world will never see another Freddie Mercury. I mean, they’re doing scientific studies on his voice to figure out why it was so amazing. He truly was a gift to this world. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about him.

It’s sad that the world has been deprived of the work that he still had inside of him but I’m grateful for the amazing things that we do have from him and the fact that he was ever here at all.

So I wrote this excessively long message because Freddie should be celebrated today and everyday.

We’ll celebrate you forever. 
Happy Birthday, Freddie ❤️

🎉🎉🎉

Am I the only one who somehow is super excited for Freddie’s birthday? Like I’m planning the whole day and I will wear my Freddie Mercury shirt and paint the nails of my left hand black and will throw a little one-man party but I’ll have a great time listening to his beautiful songs and think about him and celebrate this day and tell my classmate who shares the birthday with Fred how lucky he is to be born on that day.

Anyone who’s known me for five seconds knows what a fan I am of Freddie Mercury. I consider him to be a genius, and the most versatile and gifted musician and showman to ever appear on a stage.

Tomorrow, 5 September, would’ve been Freddie’s 69th birthday. He’s not here with us to celebrate, as he should be, because he was taken from us far too early, at age 45, due to AIDS.

Of course, he wasn’t the only one. This disease is an equal opportunity killer. It has claimed people of every race, occupation and social strata. My own husband lost an uncle, a very talented Hollywood set decorator named Mark Hite, to this terrible illness.

Had Freddie lived just one more year, he would be with us today, as would millions more, because of advancements in medicine.

A trust was created in his honour, to advance research and end this scourge once and for all. It is called the Mercury Phoenix Trust, and if you are able and so inclined, it needs your support.

Not a day passes without me taking time to enjoy Freddie’s music and appreciate the brilliant artist, musician and person he was. His impact and legacy loom large and always will. Tomorrow, on his 69th birthday, I and members of his family, friends and countless fans the world over will listen to his music, watch his performances and light a candle for a life extinguished far too soon.

Happy Birthday, Farrokh Bulsara. You aren’t a star; you are a legend. And you will forever live in our hearts. ❤️
