Publican imágenes inéditas de Freddie Mercury a pocos días de su fallecimiento

Antes de que podamos celebrar un nuevo aniversario del nacimiento de Freddie Mercury, en las redes sociales se han vuelto a viralizar las últimas fotos que se tomaron del cantante, antes de que falleciera en noviembre de 1991.

En las imágenes se ve al vocalista de Queen sin su bigote, delgado y en una actitud relajada. Fueron tomadas por Jim Hutton, la última pareja del cantante, en su mansión londinense el 28 de agosto de ese año.

En ellas Mercury aparece con Oscar, uno de los gatos que adoptó y quien estuvo a su lado, al igual que Hutton, en sus últimos días de vida.

On August 28th 1991, exactly 28 years ago today, Jim Hutton took these photos of Freddie at Garden Lodge 📷…his last ever known photographs 😞 . "That summer Freddie posed for a camera for the very last time – mine. It happened like this. I was out in the garden photographing some of the flowers in full bloom and Freddie walked towards me. I trained the lens on – he wanted to move back a bit so it wasn't a close-up. Then he posed while I took four pictures, and he managed a smile for each. He was so pale and drawn that he knew he didn't look his best, but it didn't matter a bit; of all the pictures I have of Freddie, those are the ones I love most." -Jim Hutton . 👉P.S. Seeing these photos and reading those words by Jim always pains me beyond words… but I share them not to focus on his illness (please don't do that) but to show how he always saw the beauty in every moment and his smile and bravery never waverd…. I love the fact that a cat (who looks like Oscar) is standing next to Freddie and I'd like to think he was having a good time amidst the bloom of the flowers of his beautiful garden…🌸 But most importantly, despite the sadness, I'm still in awe and admiration for Freddie and his superhuman courage to face life head on and muster a smile even through his hardest moments. His smile always stayed on and in that way he even mocked his illness. My hero…💪 This man is a source of inspiration on so many levels and I love him for that… ❤ . #FreddieMercury #lastphoto

Según publicó el diario español El País, antes de su partida, el vocalista, afectado por los síntomas del sida, se había asegurado de que sus mascotas recibieran los cuidados necesarios una vez él no estuviera para velar por ellos.»La reacción de Freddie ante su enfermedad fue de total incredulidad. No se hundió hasta las últimas semanas, cuando realmente se estaba muriendo«, había dicho Hutton, fallecido también en 2010 a causa del cáncer.
