12. Freddie Mercury Confirms AIDS, Dies 24 Hours later

Freddie Mercury was famous for not giving many interviews, for years, his waning weight and paled skin led to speculation that he suffered from AIDS, but he confirmed this publicly just one day before his death. Mercury became a martyr for AIDs and his death led to discussion on the illness, which was previously taboo. (Photo by Dave Hogan/Getty Images)
