David Furnish has responded to George’s recent comments about Elton that were published in The Guardian newspaper. George had said that they only think George’s drug use is out of control because they never see him, largely because he refuses to be part of the London social clique that Elton, and David in particular, are a part of.
David’s response was that he and Elton were only going on what people close to George were telling them. That is, it’s people close to George that are saying that they are worried about him, and in particular his drug use.
So… let’s examine this situation, and see where it takes us.
First, what is this “social clique” that George is talking about? Well, I’m pretty sure it’s a “gay men and fag hags” group of minor celebrities that always hang out together. People like: David Furnish, Cilla Black, Liz Hurley, Christopher Biggins, Paul O’Grady. Can’t blame George for not wanting to spend his nights with that lot! Sounds like hell to me. Now, who in that social clique is in any way close to George? There are only two, as far as I know: Kenny Goss and Geri Halliwell. Kenny and Geri love being a part of that group.
So, if people in that clique are telling David Furnish that they’re worried about George, then Kenny and Geri could set the record straight rather easily. Strange, no? I suggest leaves us with two possibilities:
- David Furnish is lying
- It’s Geri and Kenny who are saying to people that they’re worried about George
Both are possible; not sure which is more likely. If it’s the latter, God only knows what they’re worried about. It could be nothing e.g. “We’re so worried. George never wants to come out with us, and party with Cilla and Biggins. It must be the drugs that make him not like Cilla.”
Or it could be something. Perhaps George’s drug use is a problem: the fact is, George has admitted he has had a problem with prescription medication; and he has fallen asleep at the wheel of his car on at least two occasions where he was caught. So, it’s not like he’s never had any problems with drug use – prescription or otherwise.
My bet, though, is that David Furnish is being economical with the truth. Those guys love a good gossip. I suspect that Kenny has witnessed this gossip, and said to George, “You know, George, to stop all this, all you have to do is come out and party with us a few times. Then people will be able to see you’re fine.”… but that George’s response is, “Sorry, but I really just don’t give a fuck what Cilla Black and Christopher Biggins think about me. They are dreadful. I don’t even know why you want to hang out with them.”
