Freddie Mercury Laughs at Kanye West's Queen Cover In Viral Video (A Top Story)

On Wednesday Freddie Mercury Laughs at Kanye West's Queen Cover In Viral Video was a top story. Here is the recap: (Radio.com) Kanye West may have declared himself the "greatest living rock star on the planet" at Glastonbury over the weekend, but from the looks of this clip, Freddie Mercury doesn't seem to agree.

During his headlining set, West took on Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody," with some saying he totally nailed it and others making it clear there is only one version of that song, always and forever.

Now, a very loyal Queen fan--or, someone who just doesn't like Kanye, and since a lot of people signed that petition to get him off the Glastonbury bill, this may be more likely--had taken the time to edit together footage of 'Ye's performance with classic footage of Mercury, who passed away in 1991.

In the less than one-minute clip, Mercury throws back a beer and gets a good chuckle at Kanye as he pours his heart and soul out on lines like, "Mama, I just killed a man."

Mercury isn't having it though, and through the magic of editing, Kanye is left looking sad and let down as Mercury begins to sing. Kind of like that time he went zip lining or ate Chinese food all alone. See it - here.
