George Michael Tribute Episode on Glee

GEORGE Michael is the latest pop star to get a tribute episode on musical drama series Glee.

It is believed that the third episode of the new series will be dedicated to George – and will feature the McKinley High Glee Club performing some of his hits.

Sony is re-working the singer’s 1987 album Faith – to be released worldwide in September to coincide with the show.

Bosses hope it will “introduce a new generation of fans to his music”.

The second series of Glee starts in the US on September 21 and is due here on E4 later this year.

Creator Ryan Murphy says the series will see tributes to Britney Spears and Sir Paul McCartney.

George Michael Apologizes for Swearing on BBC Radio 2

Apparently, George Michael dropped the “f” word during Chris Evans’ show on BBC Radio 2.

At one point the singer, who is a car fanatic, was asked why he has never appeared on Top Gear as the “star in a reasonably-priced car”.

Believing there would be an automatic delay on his words, he replied: “Other than the fact I’d be afraid of coming last in that f****** …”

Evans quickly interrupted to apologise, before informing Michael there was in fact no delay on the show. The DJ said: “George is so relaxed and we do apologise for that – we didn’t mean to offend anyone.”

“I’m sorry everyone,” added Michael.
