"Podgy" George a Far Cry from his Recent Slick Stage Appearance

(Editorial note: He looks fine! I guess if they can't find a story, they make one up out of nothing.)

"Podgy" George a Far Cry from his Recent Slick Stage Appearance:

In a washed out hoody, battered jeans, and his trademark facial hair, now peppered with grey, singer George Michael cut a frumpy figure looking older than his 43 years, and a far cry from his recent slick stage appearances.

The fluffy-haired crooner, was caught near his home in north London looking less than his usual sartorially elegant self.

George Michael Comes to Kyiv

George Michael Comes to Kyiv:

His Kyiv gig hasn’t been announced officially yet, and remains more of a rumor. However, this rumor is probably right, since Michael’s official website features the Kyiv concert on the tour schedule page. It’s placed right under Moscow – Kyiv, July 9, Olympic stadium.

Petition for a George Michael Concert in Portugal

Sandra tells us about the petition to have a George Michael concert in Portugal.

Wembley's War of the Warblers: Russell Wins

Wembley's War of the Warblers: Russell Wins:

It wasn't so long ago that George Michael was too scared to set foot on stage, so his rebirth as a live artist, and in particular the announcement that he will be "the first star to play at the new Wembley" were greeted excitably. Michael's co-manager commented: "To be the first artist to play Wembley is a dream for him."

The claim rankles with English opera singer Russell Watson who is booked to belt out a few notes at the stadium three weeks before George Michael's entourage get anywhere near the hallowed turf.

Watson, back with a new album and a UK tour after surgery to remove a brain tumour in September, will lead a crowd of 90,000 singing the National Anthem, before the FA Cup Final on Saturday 19 May.

The afternoon will be considerably more enjoyable for the tenor if his beloved Manchester United progress to lift the trophy.

Push for George Michael in Oz

Push for George Michael in Oz:

The upcoming ’25 Live’ tour is the first tour for George Michael in fifteen years, and has already sold over 650,000 tickets for 49 separate tour dates. As more shows are announced, the call has once again been made for Aussie fans to show their support in an attempt to bring the tour to Australia.

The unofficial petition appropriately titled “
Bring George Michael to Australia” has now received over 4,250 signatures, and with the push being made by both fans and Sony BMG in Australia, it is set to rise.

Kenny Goes Crackers at a Celeb Auction

Kenny Goes Crackers at a Celeb Auction:

Kenny Goss is lucky he has a forgiving partner in George Michael - after he went on a £62,000 spending spree at an auction last night.

The singer's flamboyant lover was on top form as he cavorted with pals Jerry Hall and Tracey Emin - burying his head in both their cleavages.

Andrew Ridgeley News

Check out the latest Andrew Ridgeley news, (and I must say I own Son of Albert and really like it!)

In London's showbusiness circles, the word is that Ridgeley is to emerge from rural hibernation for a series of one-off gigs this summer alongside former bandmate George Michael at the newly-completed Wembley Stadium (rumours further fuelled this week by newspaper adverts for the concert proclaiming the appearance of a 'Very Special Guest').

The deal is said to have been signed early in the new year, when Ridgeley agreed to make a guest appearance at the show to sing on one of Michael's most enduring hits, Careless Whisper.

Second Wembley Date for George Michael

George Michael to Receive Big Pay at Party Performance

George Michael to Receive Big Pay at Party Performance:

London, England (BANG) - George Michael will earn $985,000 for performing at a British billionaire's birthday party.

The 'Careless Whisper' singer will earn around $16,000 a minute for the hour-long show at TopShop boss Philip Green's 55th birthday next Tuesday.

At the Top of the Stairs

At the Top of the Stairs:

When gallery owner Kenny Goss offered the Dallas home he shares with pop star George Michael for a private dinner following opening night at NorthPark's Fashion at the Park, it was with the understanding that he and George would be unable to attend.

That turned out to be half right.

Mr. Michael has been in Dallas for about a month preparing for the May 18 launch of his 25 Live stadium tour of Europe.

Wednesday night, following Fashion at the Park's debut runway show by Ferragamo, 75 select guests headed to Kenny and George's home, where a dinner tent had been built over the pool. Kenny greeted guests like NorthPark owners Nancy Nasher and husband David Haemisegger , Ferragamo menswear designer Massimiliano Giornetti and Mr. Michael's childhood friend, composer David Austin.

Only a handful of guests knew that 1) George Michael is actually quite shy, and 2) He was upstairs during dinner preparing to head back to London.

George Michael "Too Busy Touring for Trial"

George Michael "Too Busy Touring for Trial":

No date has been set for George Michael's drug driving trial - because he will be so busy touring, it emerged at court.

Brent Magistrates Court was unable to set a trial date for the singer after his arrest for allegedly driving while high on cannabis because of his busy tour schedule, which includes work in the States and Europe.

But District Judge Katherine Marshall warned that a trial date did need to be set, saying she would treat Michael as "being at work - and he may have to take a day off work."

George Michael fans desperate to see his Carrow Road concert have been warned not to get ripped off by touts after tickets went on sale at two-and-a-half times their face value on an internet auction site.

George Michael Faces Additional Drug Charge

George Michael Faces Additional Drug Charge:

LONDON (AP) — George Michael, who was arrested after police found him slumped over the steering wheel of his car in an intersection in north London last October, will face an additional charge, a prosecutor said Wednesday.

No date has been set for trial on the charges, which stem from an Oct. 1 incident.

Prosecutor Andrew Torrington, appearing in Brent Magistrates Court, said the original charge of being unfit to drive through drugs was being amended to driving while unfit through drugs.

The new, additional charge is of being in charge of a vehicle while unfit through drugs.

The 43-year-old singer wasn't present in court.

George Michael to Play First Gig at New Wembley

LONDON (Reuters) - Singer George Michael will be the first pop artist to play a concert at the new Wembley Stadium, the venue's managing director said on Sunday.

Michael's gig at the much-delayed rebuilt stadium, which has cost more than 750 million pounds, is scheduled for June 9, three weeks after the venue is due to host the FA Cup final.

"He's no stranger to this great stage having performed at the old stadium both with Wham! at Live Aid and also as a solo artist, so this is a fitting first gig in the new stadium," Wembley managing director Alex Horne said in a statement.

"The contract for the concert has been signed by all parties," Michael's publicist told Reuters.
