I want to bring Freddie Mercury back to life! Freddie Mercury needs our help! If we don't help him, today's so-called musicians will take over the world with their so-called music, and the amazing music we heard in the past will be gone forever!

If we bring Freddie Mercury back to life, no more Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj, Miley Cyrus, 6IX9INE, Lil Pump, and Lil Wayne. In fact, we can trade those so-called musicians to bring back dear Freddie and hear some real music. I'm in love with Freddie Mercury, and I want him to be brought back to life.

Bruce Lee was a health fanatic who took his health seriously and was very active. I think he set a very good example for the younger generation of 2019. He was a warm, kind, and loving brother, a good husband, and a wonderful father. We should have more men like him. Then the world would be a better place to live in.

I'd love to bring back Whitney Houston, Freddie Mercury, John Lennon, and Elvis Presley. But the most special celebrity, the singer of all time, is Michael Jackson. So, so, so famous and such a talent and such a nice person.

He voiced Leon Kompowski on 'The Simpsons' season 3 episode, 'Stark Raving Dad'.

King of Pop. Who else would you bring back?

John Lennon was one of the greatest humans to inhabit this Earth. He brought such inspirational change, honesty, and reflection, and uplifted the spirit more than anyone else in my lifetime. I would love to bring him back. We lost him way too soon!

If John Lennon could be brought back, along with George Harrison, the world could again experience the most influential, most popular, and biggest selling act in the history of show business, The Beatles.

Just listen to the lyrics of "Imagine."

She died so young, leaving her sons with a father who is lacking. Her charity work gave so much back to the world.

So sad that she did not live to see her son's marriage to Kate Middleton.

19 James Dean James Byron Dean was an American actor. He is a cultural icon of teenage disillusionment and social estrangement, as expressed in the title of his most celebrated film, Rebel Without a Cause, in which he starred as troubled teenager Jim Stark.

Based on all the stories I've heard about him from friends, he seems like the friend I needed in middle school. All joking aside, Jimmy helped me get through my challenging years in middle school. I've read that despite having a bit of a temper, he was someone who would never give up on you and would stick by your side like glue if he found a kindred spirit in you.

He was known for being dedicated and an overall fun, funny, and sweet person. My friends like to tease me and say that I am the reincarnated version of him.

I don't want to die in a car accident. When I die, it'll be a glorious day. It'll probably be a waterfall.

We're all worth it, man. We're all worth millions of planets, stars, galaxies, and the universe.

He was so pure, the kindest person I've ever known. I wish I could see him now. I was so sad thinking of this guy always.
