Man, I just found out that George Michael has been in the hospital since last week. Oh no, say it isn’t s0?! Apparently he had pneumonia, but sources say that he is recovering and doing much better. Whew, thank God! I’m a big fan of George Michael and I always dreamed of seeing him perform live. The Grammy winning singer has come out with so many great tracks throughout his career, and he’s up there on the list of my favorite pop icons: Michael Jackson, Madonna, David Bowie, Michael Bolton, Britney Spears, Mick Jagger, Janet Jackson, and ABBA.
George Michael has always been one of my favorite icons next to Madonna and of course the legendary Michael Jackson, as well as Janet Jackson. When I was younger I always wondered if he was gay, but it didn’t matter to me. He was still such a sexy man with a mindblowing voice. His sexual orientation didn’t bother me, but sadly a Christian organization blasted him on Twitter a few days ago and said “”He has chosen a satanic lifestyle and must meet an appropriate end,” the group wrote.” This society is called Christians for Moral America, and I think that’s so disgusting how they handled the news of him being sick. Geeze, the man was ill and had to cancel his performances, where is the Christian love in saying “Our prayers are with him.” SMH….I can’t stand organizations like that, and I’m actually a Christian ( I don’t go to church anymore because it’s become such a hypocritical fashion show and arena of judgement.) I’m not perfect, but I at least try to show love and accept people from all backgrounds.
Whether someone is gay, straight, bisexual, Black, White, Spanish, transgender, or practices another religion/spiritual belief, etc, it just shouldn’t matter! We all know that George Michael has had a lot of legal problems throughout the years, as well as being caught with a male prostitute in 1998, but who cares? His music is good, and at the end of the day that’s all the matters to me. So what if George Michael is gay? His music is simply amazing and he is so talented, which is why he earns a spot on my list of favorite pop icons.
I truly hope that he gets better and isn’t facing any other serious illnesses. It would be tragic if we lost another pop icon. We already lost the best artist in the world, Michael Jackson, and it would be tragic if yet another icon passed away. With all the crappy music that is out now, we can’t stand to lose the icons that are still keeping the music alive.
In appreciation for good music and hoping that George Michael gets better, I decided to post one of my favorite songs “Fast Love.” Such an upbeat track that has a very sexy avant-garde video.
