Borat Might Rock You

Saschacohen

Rumors of an upcoming Queen biopic began percolating late last year. This morning our inside sources are saying that Sacha Baron Cohen has been tapped to play the band’s sadly deceased frontman, Freddie Mercury. Said someone close to the film, "Sacha loves the idea he can get away with playing Freddie after modeling Borat’s look on him." That would mean that Borat beat out Johnny Depp to play the charismatic rock god who died of AIDS-related complications in 1991. Of course, it behooves us to note that this news comes from U.K. tabloid The Daily Mirror, a publication so salacious it makes TMZ look like The New Yorker. As yet there’s no word on whether or not Queen guitarist Brian May will be played by Ken Davitian, aka Aazmat, Borat’s naked wrestling partner. Dream on, you little dreamers.

    I know to say Happy Birthday to Freddie is rather crazy, being he cannot hear me. However, I wish to honor on this day the man who makes my spirit come alive. A gentle soul and musical genius, whose special unique charisma brought so much to the world. He wanted everyone to fall in love with his music as he had. He nurtured a song and we watched it grow. From recordings to live performances he greeted everyone in the crowd like an old friend. Charming audiences and making people feel special and alive in the magical moment of a coterie of songs. Not only did he sing these songs but he lived so many of them even the ones that he did not write. He projected so much emotion and feeling that he resonated so well with his fan base at a maximum. On November 24th, 1991 we lost such a person who forever changed the world and music at large with effortless class and grace on stage and off. As he said once, ” I won’t be a rock star, I will be a legend.” Well, legends never die and his music has forever changed the landscape of not only rock and roll, but the knowledge and prevention of AIDS and our emerging role as continuing his mission of unifying spirits and binding hearts and minds to one another. Not a day goes by that Freddie is not on my mind and in my heart and his music in my ears. Musically, he was a genius, Individually he spoke to the masses and while he thought from time to time that no one loved for who he truly was when the curtains went down and he was alone with his thoughts; I think now he would say if he saw his fans from yesteryear and new ones emerging each day write, talk and join groups on the internet telling how he changed their lives. In his quiet humbleness he would put on that Freddie Mercury bravado and say F*** it, darling, that’s just me, get over yourselves,” All done tongue in cheek. So, in closing the Show has gone on, but we all are still waiting for you to return and sing to us once more before the final curtain comes down.
