George Michael is a strange old bird….
Post the whole mens lavatory scandal back in 1997 and subsequently being forced out of the closet, George seems to have become obsessed with smoking illegal substances and cruising for sex on Hampstead Heath. He also seems to be leading a sad and lonely existence.
But then again he might be happy now. He is just living his life and prehaps there is a sense of relief he doesn’t have to pretend anymore.
Anyway in a recent interview with The Guardian, George tells Elton John to ‘shut his mouth’.
Elton and George fell out years ago and since then Elton has publicly spoken about his concerns for George.
Well George has had enough and told The Guardian,
“Elton lives on that. He will not be happy until I bang on his door in the middle of the night saying, ‘Please, please, help me, Elton. Take me to rehab’.
“It’s not going to happen. You know what I heard last week? Geri [Halliwell] told Kenny [Goss] that Bono, having spoken to Elton, had approached Geri to say, ‘What can we do for George?’.
“This is what I have to deal with because I don’t want to be part of that social clique. All I’d have to do to stop it is hang out in London, so people realise I don’t look close to death.
“As if Bono gives a s**t what I do with my private life… Elton just needs to shut his mouth and get on with his own life.
“Look, if people choose to believe that I’m sitting here in my ivory tower, Howard Hughesing myself with long fingernails and loads of drugs, then I can’t do anything about that, can I?”
Bono with all his pontificating thinks he has enough influence to save the world. Elton along with his husband David Furnish think they have the power to save individuals from themselves.
I remember some years back singer Robbie Williams told a journalist that Elton and David had tried to stage an ‘intervention’, and attempted to get him in to rehab.
Bono…. Elton – MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS!
