‘Bohemian Rhapsody’s’ Rami Malek: Why Queen’s Music Has Lasted

Bohemian Rhapsody traces the rise of British rock band Queen and tells the story about its flamboyant front man, Freddie Mercury. During its heyday with Mercury at the mic, the band recorded 15 albums and scored 12 Top 20 singles, including a couple — Crazy Little Thing Called Love and Another One Bites The Dust — that went all the way to Number 1. But it’s been 27 years since Mercury’s death, and nearly as long since the band’s last hit. So why do people still care enough about the band for people to want a movie? Rami Malek, who stars as Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody, says it’s because the songs are timeless tunes that speak directly to people’s hearts and souls.

Bohemian Rhapsody is currently playing in theaters.

Adam Levine: New Coaches Bring Big Changes To ‘The Voice’

Last week, Kelly Clarkson told us that each new season’s talent makes The Voice feel like a completely different show. Adam Levine is willing to take it one step further, though. Levine, who’s been on every season since the show’s inception, told us that every new combination of coaches changes the show in profound ways, because of the different kinds of chemistry that develop between him, Blake Shelton (who’s also been on every season), and the newer coaches.
