Who knew Freddie Mercury had a nanny who probably taught him the secrets of the earth huh? Like, she must rock at it because he’s happy as hell. Also, Zanzibar. Because that’s a real place. But yes, Freddie Mercury was actually born Farrokh Bulsara amd he was born in Zanzibar. Bust that out next time someone who only likes Queen because of Wayne’s World starts going on about We Are The Champions. Via r/OldSchoolCool, home to a pretty impressive selection of photography, both of regular & intensely famous people.
