One of the most well-known Queen and Freddie Mercury fan clubs on all social media, Freddie Mercury Club shared a really rare and unseen interview of Freddie Mercury which Freddie reveals what kept Queen together.

Reporter asked:

“What do you think has kept the band together… for so many years?”

Freddie Mercury:

“Money!”

Reporter:

“That doesn’t seem to be the motivating force for many other bands.”

Freddie Mercury:

“Oh we love the money. If they say that they don’t like the money they’re talking out of their ass. To be honest I’m sure Brian would say “In the end, we want to be respected as musicians.”

I don’t want to change people’s lives by the music. I just want people, after I finished, to say “Queen were a band that came out with good music and people enjoyed their music and had fun.”

πŸ’₯Freddie's Honest & Witty Answers: "Money"πŸ’₯ . Interviewer: What do you think has kept the band together…for so many years? . Freddie: Money! πŸ‘‰(I love how Fred already knows what his answer's gonna be before the interviewer has even finished his question 😁 That naughty look in his eyes and mischievous smile on his face as he looks and nods at the man with a cup in his hands all cool and collected like a BOSS 😎 Like he's hearing an old joke for the 100th time and he's just waiting to add his punchline πŸ‘Š And his side smile…too damn gorgeous to handle πŸ”₯❀πŸ”₯ . Intwr: That doesn't seem to be the motivating force for many other bands. (πŸ‘‰Oh you fool!) . Fred: Oh we love the money. If they say that they don't like the money they're talking out of their ass. 😎 πŸ‘‰(Damn right! It's so satisfying to hear such honest truthful answers & see Freddie put the man in his place. And the way he says "ass" with that attitude…so sassy I wanna die πŸ”₯😩πŸ”₯ . F: To be honest I'm sure Brian would say "in the end we want to be respected as musicians.". πŸ‘‰(I love how he subtly points to the self-righteous, respectable & cliched "talk" common among musicians such as his own babdmate when he knows it's business for them more than anything. Oh Freddie if only you knew how time and money would unmask those "respected musicians"…but it seems like you already knew πŸ˜‰ . F: I don't want to change people's lives by the music. I just want people, after I finished, to say "Queen were a band that came out with good music and people enjoyed their music and had fun." πŸ‘‰(Words of wisdom…and you and your music still make us happy all the time. And darling you really DID change our lives more than you realize.πŸ‘β€) . F: And I certainly don't wanna give up now. I have nothing else to do. 😁 πŸ‘‰(He might as well add "I'm not a very good housewife" πŸ˜‚ I love him and the face he makes) . πŸ‘‰P.S. I wish I could see the intrvr's face during all this…expecting to have a routine interview receiving the same old formulaic answers everyone gives him but Freddie Mercury is no ordinary man and he plays by nobody's rules except his own πŸ˜β€πŸ‘‘ . πŸŽ₯ @MTVnews 1984 . #FreddieMercury #honesty
