Freddie Mercury QuoteIn terms of the press, I’m a very hated person.

In terms of the press, I’m a very hated person. But I hate the press as well, so that goes both ways. Some papers want a certain kind of news, and it can wreck peoples lives. I think I’ve learned to live with it after all these years. I’d be a liar to say I’m not hurt by criticism, because everybody is. Of course I want everybody to say I’m wonderful and like my songs, and I don’t mind genuine well thought out criticism, but of course you’re going to get people who review our albums without even listening to them, and things like that. That’s the way of the world. I used to get really mad and start tearing my hair out, but I don’t have sleepless nights anymore. I learned to live with it. You need to be a strong- willed, astute person to survive in this industry. I never let the press worry me. Let them all come!
