Noddy Holder Bought Signature Hat From Freddie Mercury


Noddy Holder Slade Freddie Mercury

The rocker turned the sparkling headpiece into his signature look, which can be seen online in videos for his band's holiday hit Merry Christmas Everybody, and now he has opened up about how he came by the hat.

"I got the idea after I saw (singer) Lulu with a sparkly dress, with the light bouncing off it," he tells Ultimate Classic Rock. "It's actually an antique coachman's hat with mirrors stuck on. It had its own flight case.

"I got the hat off a guy in Kensington Market in London, called Freddie. He said, 'One day I'm gonna be a big pop star like you.' I said, 'F**k off, Freddie'. He became Freddie Mercury."

Freddie Mercury & Rob Halford Named On Maxim Russia's 'Cool And Gay' List


Rob Halford Judas Priest Freddie Mercury

Editors of the Russian version of the men's publication have published a list of gay celebrities whose contributions to culture are so great they've "earned our respect and the right to remain real men in our eyes".

Following the line of the country's anti-gay propaganda legislation, the publication's bosses state, "We, men, do not consider men who love men to be men. This is the rule, but there are exceptions."

They go on to list Halford and Mercury among those who are so cool "it doesn't matter what your orientation is".

Production On Freddie Mercury Biopic To Begin In Summer 2016 - Report


Freddie Mercury Ben Whishaw

The Theory of Everything screenwriter Anthony MCCarten has been brought onboard to give Peter Morgan's original script a complete revamp, two years after comedian Sacha Baron Cohen bowed out of plans to portray the flamboyant Queen frontman in 2013 due to creative differences with the band's surviving members.

Spectre and Skyfall star Ben Whishaw was subsequently tapped to take over the role and he reportedly remains producers' top pick to tackle Mercury when cameras start rolling next year (16).

British musician and actor Johnny Flynn is said to have signed on as a young Roger Taylor, while another Bond alum, Quantum of Solace's Gemma Arterton, will play Freddie's former lover, Mary Austin, according to Tracking-Board.com.

The Florence + the Machine singer - who broke her foot jumping off stage at Coachella earlier this year - sought advice on calming her nerves ahead of headlining Glastonbury, a gig she was given after the Foo Fighters frontman's injury caused his group to pull out, and in return offered some health tips.

She wrote: ''I'm so sorry you broke your leg. I know how that must feel. I broke my foot onstage too only a few weeks ago. What idiots we are!

Adam Lambert won't date anyone ''in the closet'' again.

The 'Ghost Town' hitmaker previously said he had liaisons with celebrities who are closeted and unable to reveal their sexuality to the public. Now he has said he doesn't think he will date anyone again as it's ''difficult'' to see someone who is ''worried'' about damaging their image.

Adam told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''Actors and entertainers can't be open about their sexuality and it's hard to live that life. It's difficult to date someone who's so worried about their reputation. I don't think I could date anyone in the closet again.
