HIV-Infected Celebrities

Wednesday, 21 July 2010

Freddie Mercury In the last decades, the human immunodeficiency virus or HIV has taken millions of lives: from 1981 to 2006 HIV and AIDS killed 25 million people around the world. The nameless victims who get infected go unnoticed, but celebrities who do, always get the world's attention. We have lost many truly talented people to AIDS, from Freddie Mercury to Isaac Asimov.

Officially, the first Hollywood celebrity to publicly admit the terrible diagnosis was Rock Hudson, one of the most famous Hollywood stars known for his immaculate good looks and flawless acting talent, and captured the hearts and minds creating fans everywhere. He was a dashing silver screen and the epitome of Hollywood's leading man. His career spanned over four decades and nearly 70 motion pictures, which included movies like The Last Sunset, The Ambassador, Strange Bedfellows, Come September, Pillow Talk, Man's Favorite Sport and Send Me No Flowers. Hudson was diagnosed with HIV/AIDS in the year 1984 and died on October 2, 1985. He was 59 years old. However, Hudson's name was dragged in the mud after he was dead: his partner Mark Christian has instigated a dirty scandal and demanded a compensation for the risk of AIDS he run when he was sharing bed with Hudson.

Freddie Mercury was a famous rock musician, best known as the lead singer for the English rock band Queen. He was famous for his powerful vocal abilities and charisma as a live performer. The first rumors about Mercury having AIDS appeared back in the mid-eighties, as the horrifying diagnosis quickly showed on Mercury's exterior - he lost weight, looked exhausted, almost unable to move. In November 1991, Freddie decided make a formal statement that he had AIDS.  On November 24, 1991, Freddie died at his home in London, of AIDS-related bronchial pneumonia.

Another celebrity lost to AIDS-relatedd disease is Isaac Asimov, famous science fiction writer and biochemist. Two of his works were turned into highly successful films - I, Robot and Bicentennial Man. Asimov, who was also popular for his science books, became infected by transfused blood during heart surgery.  He died on April 6, 1992 because of heart and kidney failure, which were due to complications of the HIV infection. Asimov's brother Stanley cited heart and kidney failure as the official cause of his death. Only ten years after Asimov's death, his heirs have released a book revealing the truth about the true cause of his tragic death. Janet Asimov, Isaac's widow, wrote later that Asimov wanted to publicly admit his condition, but doctors convinced otherwise.

Gia Carangi was an American fashion model during the late 1970s and early 1980s. Cindy Crawford, who also appeared on the covers of fashion publications during her time, was later referred to as "Baby Gia" due to her resemblance to Carangi. Carangi was featured on the cover of fashion magazines, including Vogue, Vogue Paris, American Vogue, Vogue Paris, Italian Vogue, and several issues of Cosmopolitan between 1979 and 1982. After she became addicted to heroin, Carangi's modeling career rapidly declined. She later became infected with HIV and died at the age of 26. Her death was not widely publicized and few people in the fashion knew the true cause of her death.

One of the greatest NBA players of all time, Earvin «Magic» Johnson is widely considered as the best point guard ever to play the game.  1992 Olympics champion, 5-time NBA champion, «Magic» Johnson publicly announced that he had been infected with the HIV in November 1991. A few years later Johnson finally retired from basketball and turned into quite a successful businessman: his company Magic Johnson Enterprise net worth is estimated at $700 million. Johnson also owns a network of 160 Starbucks coffee shops, 31 BurgerKing restaurants, and dozens of gyms. A significant part of his time Johnson dedicates to raise the awareness of HIV and AIDS and continues to be an advocate for safe sex.
