Despite dubbing himself the “greatest living rockstar on the planet,” Kanye West took a break from his own discography to perform a popular tune by some other rock stars during his set at Glastonbury on Saturday.
West, 38, who was one of the headliners at the British music festival, led a audience sing-a-long of Queen’s iconic 1975 hit “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
It takes a lot of guts to tackle Queen’s 1975 musical masterpiece “Bohemian Rhapsody” but clearly Panic! At the Disco is up to the challenge. Their six-minute rendition is setting social media on fire and will send shivers down your spine. It’s epic!
Honestly, we’re a little shocked it took this long, but finally there’s a lovingly crafted Star Wars-themed parody of “Bohemian Rhapsody,” and it’s amazing.
Produced by the students and faculty of the digital video program at University of Advancing Technology in Tempe, Ariz., it’s the best mashup of Queen and George Lucas we’ve ever seen. (Admittedly, it wasn’t a crowded field.)
A British commemorative stamp depicting Freddie Mercury, the late lead singer of the music group Queen, has drawn fire from critics who call it inappropriate for the Royal Mail to be featuring the flamboyant performer. “The queen we would rather see on our postage stamps is not stripped to the waist and wearing spray-on red trousers,” columnist Simon Heffer wrote in the tabloid Daily Mail.
