Queen guitarist Brian May has leaped to the defence of Mika, after reading a scathing review of the British pop sensation's debut album. The WE WILL ROCK YOU hitmaker was stunned to see the quirky singer's debut album LIFE IN CARTOON MOTION receive a one star rating in a British newspaper, and quickly launched a blistering verbal attack on the reviewer, ALEXIS PETRIDIS. May fumes, "Good lord, what a w**ker. I have a picture of Petridis... he looks like a nasty, grubby, spotty, unusually ignorant 15-year-old creep... writing a facile attempted artistic assassination as it he's trying to prove he has teeth in a sixth-form magazine." Mika's debut single Grace Kelly is currently topping the UK singles chart for the third week running.
