In his forthcoming South Bank interview (to be shown on Sunday, Oct 31) singer George Michael is shown spoking a spliff on camera. Oooooooooooh – how controversial. Still, George knows what he’s doing – he knew that would generate lots of publicity because the media are so stupid about this kind of thing.
George is quoted as saying,
This stuff keeps me sane
No it doesn’t George. There’s no evidence to suggest that cannabis prevents mental illness. But, hey, we can agree to disagree on that one!
Another interesting quote (which I’m not sure is correct) is on the subject of him losing so many of his gay fans. He is quoted as saying,
They’re only interested when you’re in the closet. Once you’re out, they don’t give a toss.
I’ll be interested to see the true context to this one – just doesn’t sound quite right. I mean, as far as I’m aware, George Michael has many gay fans. Having said that, I have no idea how many he’s lost.
