"Elton and George Are the New Medicis: They Have Money, Influence and No Taste"

"Elton and George Are the New Medicis: They Have Money, Influence and No Taste"

Between them they own art worth approximately £1bn. If an Emin or Hirst is not on public display, the chances are it's on the wall of the warehouse of one of the new British collectors whose fabulous wealth is funding a contemporary art boom in much the same way as the Medicis dominated 15th-century Florence or the Guggenheims 20th-century New York.

Now, like their predecessors, today's collectors are turning to philanthropy and opening free art galleries or loaning out work so their collections can be aired in public.

Eli Stone

Programming coup delivers further strength for Seven:

ELI STONE: Today the worst thing happened to mercenary attorney Eli Stone (Jonny Lee Miller). A case made him care. As if that's not enough, he's also hallucinating. Could it be that Eli's not cut out to be a cutthroat lawyer, but has a higher calling? Risking everything, he begins work in his law firm’s new pro bono department fighting for the little guy. As for those visions of George Michael singing to him, his doctor thinks it’s an aneurysm, like the one that tortured his father. But Eli sees a greater possibility, a destiny to become a spiritual prophet. From the producers of Brothers & Sisters comes this unique, character-driven drama that explores the different worlds of law and spirituality in a humorous way.

Buena Vista Babe

Buena Vista Babe:

Since leaving the band, Mutya Buena's career has exploded. George Michael called her during her Sugababes days, wanting her to record a duet. At the time she said the band weren't so keen on her stepping outside their ranks.

When she left, Michael called again. Their duet, This Is Not Real Love, was a British Top 20 hit last year and Buena got on stage to perform it with him during his European tour last year.

"That gave me a big kick," Buena says. "I was still trying to finish my album, then I get to go in the studio with him and go on stage with him and sing in front of 20,000 people when I hadn't been on stage for about two years. That was amazing.

"He made it so much easier for me. He boosted my confidence, made me feel like I could do it again. He's amazing, not just because he let me on one of his tracks. He's just a great artist. That's one of the highlights of my life, working with George Michael."
