June 27, 2008: "Singer George Michael Celebrates His Birthday At Los Angeles Concert"

Singer George Michael proved he still has what it takes to rock the house Wednesday at his concert in the Los Angeles' Forum. The audience thanked the star by breaking into a spontaneous arena-wide rendition of "Happy Birthday."

The singer, who turned 45 on Wednesday, has reportedly said he is too old to be a pop star. The audience seemed to think differently.

Michael's concert spanned his career work of songs, including songs from his days in the group Wham!

The birthday sing-a-long wasn't the only birthday celebration for Michael. His band also celebrated by singing to him and actress Bo Derek gave him a cake.

Michael's current "Live Global Tour" is his first North American tour in 17 years.

June 16, 2008: "George Michael's Love Life Reflected In His Songwriting"

George Michael is so happy with his boyfriend he can't write sad songs, he has to rely on tales of other people's tragic love lives to inspire him because life with Kenny Goss is so blissful.

George Michael said: "I have this wonderful partner. Through rows, misunderstandings and pain we have actually reached a fantastic place."

"So recently I've had to write about other people's lives when I want to hit that lonely mood. I have to refer to other people's pain."

George Michael also admits his happy personal life has stifled his creativity and cost him chart success.

He added to the Los Angeles Times newspaper: "I was most successful when I was the loneliest. And I think most people are lonely, even in love."

"We all know the difference between great sex and something which is totally about loving someone. And by a certain age, we know that kind of love is not a lifelong pattern for many people."

June 9, 2008: "George Michael To Ban Film On His Old Band Wham!"

George Michael may ban a film about his pop group Wham!

The band's former manager Simon Napier-Bell, 69, is in talks to bring the story of the group - which featured George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley - to the big screen, with a $100 million production.

Napier-Bell - who promises a truthful documentary, showing what really went on behind the scenes during the touring days of Wham! - he fears Michael could pull the plug on the whole project by forbidding him to use any of the band's music in the production.

He said: "There are several people sniffing around my Wham! film, but I'm not sure any of them will come off because they all require Wham! music in them and George controls that. He will have the yes or not on each script presented. George would want control."

Napier-Bell wants the film to concentrate on the band's glory years between 1983 and 1985 when Wham! were at their peak in the charts.

Also known as: George Michael.
Born: June 25, 1963 London, England, UK.

George Michael biography (bio):
Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou is best known as George Michael, is a two-time Grammy Award winning English singer-songwriter who performs soul influenced pop, and who (as a solo artist and half of the duo Wham!) has enjoyed massive global success since 1982. His biggest commercial success to date was in 1987 with his debut solo album Faith which has sold to date well over the 20 million mark worldwide.George Michael has been named the most played artist on British radio over the past 20 years. He is one of the world's most successful male artists, selling over 85 million records globally and encompassing 12 British #1 singles, 9 British #1 albums, 10 US #1 singles and 2 US #1 albums.

Early life:
Michael was born Georgios-Kyriacos Panayiotou in East Finchley, North London. His father was Kyriacos Panayiotou, a Greek-Cypriot restaurateur who moved to England in the 1950s and changed his name to Jack Panos. Michael's maternal grandmother was from a well-off Jewish family and his grandfather from a poor working-class non-Jewish family. Their daughter was Michael's beloved mother, Lesley Angold Harrison, a former dancer who died of cancer in 1997. He spent the majority of his childhood in North London, living in the home his parents bought shortly after his birth. In his early teens, the family moved to Radlett and Michael attended Bushey Meads School.

He began his career by forming a short-lived ska band called The Executive with his best friends Andrew Ridgeley, Paul Ridgeley, Andrew Leaver and David Mortimer (aka David Austin). George attended Kingsbury High School briefly in 1974, as did his sisters.

Future career:
In an interview in 2006 with Michael Parkinson on Britain's ITV television channel, Michael announced his intention to tour for the first time in 15 years. (In May 2007 it was announced that Sophie Ellis-Bextor would be supporting him for the UK leg of the tour.) He also confirmed his intention to form a civil partnership with long-time partner Kenny Goss. He told Parkinson they would perform the legal ceremony and then hold a party. He also quipped that none of them would be donning a dress.
To coincide with the tour, a new greatest hits collection, Twenty Five, was released on 9 November 2006, including four new songs. The lead single, "An Easier Affair", debuted on radio on May 24, 2006, and was released by Sony BMG as a download on 19 June and as a CD release a week later. This new single hit #1 in the UK dance charts and reached #13 in the UK singles chart upon physical release (download entered the charts at #74). This will be the fourth "best of" package of George Michael material after 1986's "The Final", 1997's "If You Were There" (both Wham! collections), and 1998's solo collection "Ladies & Gentlemen", a double disc which went double platinum in the US.
Due to an overwhelming response by fans to his recently announced tour celebrating 25 years in the music industry, Michael, as stated by his publicist, is considering a North American tour as well. Michael has been contracted to make a guest appearance in the 2007 Christmas special of The Catherine Tate Show.[7] George will also be appearing in the 2007 Christmas special of the Ricky Gervais show Extras, as revealed in the video podcast teaser. George will be appearing in a new TV series. George plays a guardian angel to Jonny Lee Miller's character on Eli Stone, a new TV series that debuts as a mid-season replacement in 2008 in the U.S on ABC. In addition to appearing on the show, each episode will be named after a song of his.

Personal life:

Sexual orientation:
Michael was initially private about his sexual orientation, with rumours of relationships with high-profile women such as Brooke Shields and Whoopi Goldberg, as well as backing dancers, common tabloid fodder during his Wham! career.
These persisted into his solo career, but Michael had already established a relationship with a male Brazilian dress designer, Anselmo Feleppa, whom he had met at the 1991 concert "Rock in Rio". Michael and Feleppa enjoyed a loving relationship, but Feleppa died of an AIDS-related brain hemorrhage in 1993. Michael's single "Jesus to a Child" is a direct tribute to Feleppa (he consistently dedicates it to him before performing it live), as is his 1996 album Older.
Questions of his sexual orientation persisted in public, until April 7, 1998, when he was arrested for "engaging in a lewd act" in a public toilet in a park in Beverly Hills, California. He was arrested by an undercover policeman named Marcelo Rodriguez, a sting operation using so-called "pretty police".

George Michael: "Well, I was followed into the restroom, and then, this cop well, I didn't know he was a cop at the time, obviously he started playing this game. I think it's called 'I'll show you mine, you show me yours, and then when you show me yours, I'm gonna nick you'!

After pleading "no contest" to the charge, Michael was fined $810 and sentenced to 80 hours of community service. Soon afterwards, Michael made a video for his single "Outside" which was clearly based on the public toilet incident and which featured men dressed up as policemen kissing. Rodriguez, the police officer, claimed that this video "mocked" him, and also that Michael had slandered him in interviews, and in 1999 brought a $10 million court case in California against the singer who has amassed an estimated personal fortune of 70 million pounds ($100 million). The court dismissed the case, but an appeals court reinstated the case on 3 December 2002. The court then ruled Rodriguez, as a public official, could not legally recover damages for emotional distress.
After that incident he became open about his homosexuality and became public about his relationship with Kenny Goss, a former cheerleader coach and later sports clothing executive originally from Dallas, Texas, and his partner since June 1996. Goss opened the Goss Gallery in May 2005 in Dallas, which shows contemporary works of art including those collected by the couple. They have homes in London and Dallas. In late November 2005 it was reported that Michael and Goss would register their relationship as a civil partnership in the UK, but due to negative publicity and his upcoming tour, they have postponed it to a later date.
In a 2007 interview with the Independent on Sunday, Michael said that he kept his homosexuality secret due to worries over the impact that knowing would have on his mother.

Drugs:
Michael has admitted to problems with depression, which he has tried to cope with by taking Prozac, smoking cannabis, and at one time buying a Labrador Retriever, which died in the Thames.
During 2006, a series of incidents occurred which suggested he was still in turmoil. On February 26, 2006, Michael was arrested for possession of Class C drugs, an incident that he described as "my own stupid fault, as usual." He was cautioned by the police and released.
On May 15, 2006, Michael was found slumped over the wheel of his Range Rover, photographed apparently snoozing at traffic lights in London. He awoke after a member of the public knocked on his window for five minutes, and was "sweating heavily and had his iPod on". He drove off weaving up the road, and then hit a traffic bollard. Later the same month, he was questioned by police after shunting three cars in the street in which he lives.
In the early hours of October 1, 2006, Michael was found unconscious in his Mercedes-Benz S-Class car, causing an obstruction at the junction of Cricklewood Lane with Hendon Way, in northwest London. Police found Michael slumped in his seat in a semi-conscious state. He was taken to the Royal Free Hospital in Hampstead for checks, and was then booked in at Colindale police station. He was later cautioned by the police for possession of cannabis, and was released on bail pending further inquiries on his fitness to drive. He pleaded guilty on May 8, 2007 to driving while unfit through drugs. He was banned from driving for two years, and sentenced to community service again.
Michael's long term partner Kenny Goss has also been treated for dependence on prescription sleeping medication, checking into an Arizona-based clinic for two months in June 2004 after encouragement from Michael.
In September 2007 on Desert Island Discs he said his cannabis use was a problem, that he wished he could smoke less of it, and was constantly trying to do so.

Politics:
Michael has often taken a public, socially conscious, and sometimes political stance. In 1984, he sang as part of Band Aid on the charity song "Do They Know It's Christmas?" for famine relief in Ethiopia. This single held the #1 position in the UK music charts over Christmas 1984, holding Michael's own song, "Last Christmas" by Wham!, at #2. Michael donated the royalties from "Last Christmas" to Band Aid and subsequently sang with Elton John at Live Aid (the Band Aid charity concert) in 1985
In the 1980s during his years with Wham! George Michael was very critical of Margaret Thatcher's Conservative government and its cruise missile alliance with the U.S. George said that he felt bad, since through his taxes he was paying for these weapons, yet was obliged to never dodge his tax obligations to his home country.
Michael also wrote "Shoot the Dog," a critical song about the friendly relationship between the governments of the U.S. and the UK towards the Iraqi War. In the animated music video for the song, Tony Blair is depicted as the "dog" that follows his "owner" (George W. Bush) everywhere. In George's latest tour, an inflatable British Bulldog doll is seen fellating Bush on stage.
In February 2003 George Michael unexpectedly recorded a live version of Don McLean's "The Grave" song in protest against the looming Iraq war. Michael performed the song on numerous top rated TV shows including "Top of the Pops" and "So Graham Norton". The video featured extensively on MTV.
In 2007 he toured the United States with the piano that John Lennon used to write "Imagine". On the anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King's death (April 4), he appeared with the piano at the National Civil rights museum in Memphis, TN. The tour also visited Oklahoma City, and Waco, Texas.
He devoted his concert in Sofia, Bulgaria from his 25 Tour to the Bulgarian nurses sued in the HIV trial in Libya.

Residences:
George Michael ranks as Britain's 10th richest musician with an amassed personal fortune said to be between at 65 million pounds to over 100 million pounds in assets, real estate and currency. George owns several homes all over the world, including one in Highgate, London, one in Texas and one in Goring-on-Thames in Oxfordshire.
