All in all, for George Michael, it’s just another hole in the wall…
In sitting down for an interview, George spoke freely, and not in past-tense I might add, about cruising for sex, smoking the whacky tabaccky, and what he says he knows are misconceptions of his health and habits by his contemporaries
‘Recently a number of stars have said they fear for Michael’s well being, including Sir Elton John who enlisted the help of Bono. He added: ‘Geri [Halliwell] told Kenny (Georges reported ex-boyfriend) 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 realize I don’t look close to death.’
He continued: ‘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.
‘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?’
He added: ‘People want to see me as tragic with all the cottaging and drug-taking… those things are not what most people aspire to, and I think it removes people’s envy to see your weaknesses.
‘I don’t even see them as weaknesses any more. It’s just who I am.’
So, in lieu of it having just been World AIDS Day, like a week ago, and in lieu of this being a time of transformation of how the world is viewing the gay community, and in lieu of me having said ‘in lieu of’ 2 times in a row, I would like to officially tell George Michael:
YOU ARE A BAD GAY BOY! AND YOU NEED A SPANKING!! AND NOT THE KIND YOU WANDER THE FOREST SIGNALING WITH FLASH LIGHTS FOR! OR THE KIND YOU WHISTLE 3 TIMES LIKE A MOCKING BIRD FOR! OR THE KIND YOU GO TAPPING IN BATHROOM STALLS FOR! OR THE KIND YOUR 1-EYED SNAKE TRAVELS DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE FOR!!!
Sheesh, the new baby gay boys out there will hopefully grow up, and learn from your mistakes, but you have to be the cautionary tail, not the glamourized measuring stick. (Every pun intended).
