Sunday Express published a recent article about Queen legend Freddie Mercury and revealed a rare interview about why Mary Austin was so unique compared to Freddie’s boyfriends.

Here is what Freddie said:

“A real true friend for me has to be very strong and put up with me and I think Mary has been through just about everything. She has the depths and the quality to adapt to me and talk to me about very serious things.

She’s just about the only person I can think about. Otherwise, I just fend for myself. Otherwise, I just cross my hurdles in my own way.

Freddie also explained the unique side of Mary Austin:

“All my lovers asked me why they couldn’t replace Mary, but it’s simply impossible. The only friend I’ve got is Mary, and I don’t want anybody else.

To me, she was my common-law wife. To me, it was a marriage. We believe in each other, that’s enough for me.”
