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.

  1. you know what, I hear what George Micheal is saying, it maybe due to the fact that his profile got tarnished during that whole toilet thing, lol, that he has kept a low profile, but none the less, if the man is happy, leave him, in fact even if he ain’t, but ain’t asking for YOUR helping hand, leave him, who is Elton John, (i think he [G.M.] might be right about Elton waiting for him to come crawling to him askin for help, lol) and why does he think he sits on top of the Industry’s social Ladder anyway, I’ve thought for ages that he needs to get over himself and does he have some sort of hold over people??? why does most celebrities seem to bow down to him??? (I don’t care about his sales lol)

    Leave George Micheal, alone, can’t a homie just be? (no Pun intended)

  2. “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?”

    No u can’t. lmao, he is a joker, isn’t he? lol

    And yes, Bono does not give a shit about his personal life. lol

    The man sounds like he knows what he is doing and the consequences, and he does not seem to give a damn. I guess Elton spends sleepless nights waiting for him to come and knock at his door or something, lol,

    Let Elton try Amy winehouse. That is a better shot. lol

  3. ahhh see, there we go, why isn’t he more concerned about her???… she is / was in desperate need of an intervention, LOL!
