Freddie Mercury, Michael Jackson Duets: Autumn To See Megastars Combine

Despite allegedly falling out over a Llama (just read on), duets between Michael Jackson and Freddie Mercury are to be made public for the first time this August. The pair recorded three tracks, and, with both of them in the news for various reasons, getting them out seemed imperative to both parties. We can’t work out why.

Queen's manager, according to The NME, asserted that the two musical giants didn’t see eye to eye, and that this starred out when Jackson brought a llama into the studio. "Mercury rang me and said: 'Miami, dear, can you get over here? You've got to get me out of here, I'm recording with a llama.'"

Imagine the scene: it’s 1983, Jackson and Mercury are at the height of their musical powers, dominating charts and selling out shows. A combination seems financially and artistically prudent – then Michael Jackson turns up to the studio one day with a massive llama. If there isn’t a film adaption about this, then we’re living in a bad, bad world.

In other musical legend news, Sacha Baron-Cohen has dropped out of playing Mercury in the upcoming biopic. He’s been working with Queen’s remaining members, and while they wanted something the whole family could enjoy, Baron-Cohen wanted a more sordid affair. Perhaps Johnny Depp could fill in the role? Unless he follows through on his loose promise and actually gives up the acting game for good.
