Oprah Interview

Well done, George! We've missed you in the U.S., and as I've been telling all my friends for the last few months, Patience is fabulous and has the potential to do well here. IMHO, this is the first CD since Faith that has a good chance of doing well in the U.S. Of course, I love Songs from the Last Century, so what do I know?

George Michael Has a Narrow Escape - Not Not?

Here's the latest:

David writes in to say that George Michael was on Sydney Australia radio station 2dayfm on Friday, and they brought up the accident. In George's words, he said that as of 99 % of rumors about him are true, this one was as well. He wrote off his car going around a roundabout slipping on oil. He was totally ok but the car took all of the impact and is a write-off.

The official site still has not confirmed or denied the accident.
