With the success of Michael's solo singles, " Careless Whisper" (1984) and " A Different Corner" (1986), rumours of an impending break up of Wham! George knew how gifted he was, and he really struggled and labored over every one of those tracks because he knew what he wanted. I couldn't go through it with my family because I didn't know how to share it with them – they didn't even know I was gay.

In September 2007, on BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs, Michael said that his cannabis use was a problem; he wished he could smoke less of it and was constantly trying to do so. January passed, and February and March passed, and all I got were no’s, which interested me because I thought that George Michael, especially given the fact that there had not been a serious biography of George before, would be a no-brainer, easy sell. It is a shame that the author could not have learned a lesson about humanity from the man who he sought to tear apart.

His George Michael: A Life is a backstage, all-access pass into a glittery world filled with dark corners and trap doors.

I became quite emotional when they told me these stories because I knew that the happy part of George Michael’s story had won. Michael won numerous music awards, including two Grammy Awards, three Brit Awards, twelve Billboard Music Awards, and four MTV Video Music Awards. These detractors felt that George Michael was stealing space from Black artists whose birthright it was to occupy the pedestal on those Black music charts. I have screwed up enough times in my life so that I had experiences to draw upon where I could easily see myself screwing up that badly.

It was released through Sony Music Entertainment as a condition of severing contractual ties with the label. Instead, Michael donated three songs to the charity project Red Hot + Dance, for the Red Hot Organization which raised money for AIDS awareness; a fourth track, "Crazyman Dance", was the B-side of 1992's " Too Funky". Michael told the press that he had undergone a tracheotomy, [209] that the staff at the hospital had saved his life, and that he would perform a free concert for them.

At times heartbreaking to read, the through line of the book is both George’s immense talent and his darker side — George’s discomfort in his own beautiful skin, his self-destructive tendencies, his internalized homophobia, and his creative struggles. Although I had always had safe sex, I didn't want to sleep with a woman without telling her I was bisexual. Michael performed at Live Aid at the old Wembley Stadium ( exterior pictured) on 13 July 1985, and Wham!
