George Michael passed away from unknown causes, but peacefully today at the age of 51.
He started his career in the early ’80s with Wham, when they split he went on his own to have a bigger career with his chart toppers I Want Your Sex, Faith, Jesus to a Child and so many more.
His later years had been plagued with drugs and rehab, but we will focus on his music that made us happy for the last 4 decades.
So today remember him for his music and belt out his hits, as I will be doing for several weeks!
Ryan Murphy Tweeted the above picture and said “The New Wham!” and all I could do was cry a little. I don’t want Glee to Wake Me Up Before they Go Go with this performance.
Seriously we can barely get Andrew Ridgely out of hiding as it is, this number might keep him hidden forever.
So Ryan Murphy I beg you to do the Harlem Shake instead of this. Especially since Glee has a good track record of killing overplayed songs that just won’t go away.
A few months ago George Michael was near death with a bout of pneumonia, and thankfully he survived that ordeal. The singer released his first music video since he almost died and in White Light he declared that he is alive. I can confirm that and I also think that he is back better than he has been in years. Listening to him sing makes me so thankful that voice wasn’t silenced forever. I forgot just how sexy it is.
Don’t you think for the first time in a long time the George Michael we fell in love with from Wham! is back doing what he does best?
George Michael was hospitalized in Austria over a month ago for pneumonia and today he is finally back home in The UK and breaking his silence about his hospital stay. What we didn’t know is that it was really touch and go for the singer while he battled pneumonia. You can tell he was still weak and struggling to breath at times as he talked to reporters and told them that doctors spent three weeks trying to keep him alive. He would not go into detail about how bad it was because he says that he wants to protect his family from how bad it was. He apologized for not commenting before now and said he was not up to doing so. He added with voice cracking as he said this, “I spent the last 10 days since I woke up literally thanking people for saving my life which is something I have never had to do before and never want to do again.” I think that shows how severe his illness was. The singer whose one of his biggest hits is called Faith, has found it after his hospital stay.
It seems like he is a new man who is not taking life for granted anymore which is something he hopes he does because I would love to see him live and alive!
After the reporters left, he was back on Twitter and Tweeted “I’m back and I’m proud, though not very loud…… (which, I assure you, will be temporary!) MERRY XMAS TO ALL OF YOU! ISN’T LIFE GRAND !! X”
George Michael was sentenced to 8 weeks of jail for driving under the influence of weed on July 4th and crashing into a photo store today in London. According to the Daily Mail, “Michael will serve four weeks in prison and spend the rest on licence. He was also banned from driving for five years, fined Â£1,250 and ordered to pay Â£100 in costs.”
Now that he has been banned from driving for 5 years, the streets of London are safe to be on again.
