    'That's something inbred, it's a part of me. I will always walk around like a Persian popinjay.'
    [ spotlight ] Queen frontman Freddie Mercury -- or "Farrokh" -- would have turned 70 today.
    Immensely popular in Iran, Queen was apparently "the first rock act to receive an official seal of approval in Iran" in the summer of 2004, according to the BBC. The story went on to note one of those other strange contradictions in post-revolutionary Iran,
    Western music is strictly censored in the Islamic republic, where homosexuality is considered a crime. But an album of Queen's greatest hits was released in Iran on Monday.
    Mercury, who died in 1991, was proud of his Iranian ancestry, and illegal bootleg albums and singles made Queen one of the most popular bands in Iran.

    Though little is known about his Iranian roots, he did refer to himself as a "Persian popinjay" in this official video posted online for his birthday.

    He could strut like no other and while his legs were strutting that stage he was holding his audience in the palm of his hand.

    These are the days of our lives indeed Freddie.
