Other times, Jackson would assume a gruff voice and pretend to be the hotel manager to tell Crowe there was a problem with his room and he had to vacate it immediately. According to Crowe, once he got sufficiently upset, Jackson would break into giggling and reveal himself. As it turns out, all he really wanted was someone to talk to for a bit and ... oh, now we're sad.
Freddie Mercury Took Princess Diana To A Gay Bar After Dressing Her In Drag
It wasn't exactly easy for Diana Spencer, the freaking Princess of Wales, to go out on the town, as evidenced by the controversy that arose when she decided to take her son to an R-rated movie a couple years early. Still, you can't blame the lady for wanting to blow off a little steam from time to time. So when Freddie Mercury caught wind of Diana's desire to just go to a bar and have herself a drink in the late '80s, he jumped all over that shit.
According to comedian Cleo Rocos, Diana was a big fan of her TV co-star Kenny Everett, while Rocos herself was neighbors with the Queen frontman. That's how all four ended up hanging out together at Everett's penthouse, watching The Golden Girls with the sound off and improvising no-doubt superior dialog. When Diana inquired about what they were doing later, Mercury and Rocos told her they were going to the legendary London gay hot spot the Royal Vauxhall Tavern, and encouraged her to come along. Of course, Princess Diana does not simply walk into a gay bar. But no matter, Mercury had a plan. They dressed Diana up in an army jacket, leather hat, and mirrored aviators in an attempt to pass her off as a gay -- and male -- model. Now she looked like an entirely different type of queen.
