George Michael Addicted to the Weed

He loves it.
He wishes he never got involved with it.
He damn well ain’t gonna give it up

… is George Michael talking about:

A) Toilet Sex
B) Andrew Ridgely
C) Toilet Sex with Andrew Ridgely
D) Da Chronic

The Answer to these and more of your questions on the his creative process are in an exclusive interview with Corrine Barraclough in The News Of the World

He exclusively reveals that his drug habit has become an addiction – and is threatening his livelihood.

“I wish I’d never started smoking pot,” admits George, 43. “It soothes my soul but it also destroys my voice. I am addicted to marijuana – I need it to stay creative.

“The purpose of it is to create a daze. That’s why a lot of musicians smoke it – me included. I know I shouldn’t do it. It definitely makes the walls of my boxes tumble down.

Ahhh George … when the walls of that box come tumbling down you have of late seemed to be asleep behind the wheel of your car. Its really the kind of box that’s best tumbled at home.

Still he has some advice for the young kids coming up

“I was already an established artist when I started smoking. I’m not sure whether I would have become a successful artist had I started smoking as a teenager because pot makes you self-contented and lazy. You are easily satisfied when you are high – which is not good at the beginning of a career. But I’m sure smoking pot is the only thing – as stupid as it is – that makes it possible for me to continue my work.”

Conflicted and odd advice … but advice nonetheless .., The real lesson to be learned here is hang on to enough of your wealth and success and someone will marry you — and even rest a restrainng pudgy little paw on your chest.

George now lives with his long-term partner, Kenny Goss, and says his life is “getting better and better”. The pair are said to be planning a civil partnership gay wedding.

They may look like Tyne Daly in a black velvet tux … but hey every stoned Cagney needs a Lacey to love …and go on those late night Ben And Jerrys runs.

    George Michael like Kate Moss has never claimed to be a role model and has done a lot for AIDS charities.
    He has “acted out” in the past as a way to reach out to a public fascinated by celebrity.
    He has also been honest about his addictions, his sexuality and turned up his nose at the establishment with provocative music videos.
    I don’t think his marijuana problem is such a big deal,except if he believes it ruins his gorgeous voice.
    He is cogniszant of his addiction and is not in denial about it.

  2. Oh, come on….wasn’t Andrew Ridgeley straight?

    Ambiguously so…

    urban Dk….that was funny!

  5. anonymous says:

    ok, so acording to zurain above, george michael lurked at the public park’s mens stalls for some action in order for him to make an important public statement?
    what was this very important statement? stay the hell away from the bathrooms at public parks? doing it with catholic priests after riding the swings saves lives? buahaha. he is not the only stoner in hahaollywierd
    give me a break.

    What is white and runs down a public bathroom wall?

    Answer: George Michael’s latest release!

  7. Randi says:

    I don’t get that “I don’t claim to be a role model” argument. Is that supposed to give you a free pass to drive under the influence, take drugs and bang total strangers in toilets and parks?

  8. pinknblack says:

    Don’t care. He’s a level-headed guy who knows who he is and doesn’t take himself too seriously. All = good in my books.

  9. Girlygrrl says:

    Please please don’t blame the weed for your lack of stardom George!

  10. o says:

    um, lack of stardom? what rock have you been under? george michael is an icon, weed or not. good luck finding anyone who doesn’t know who he is.

  11. Girlygrrl says:

    An icon? For bathroom sex maybe- he hasn’t been known in America for much else as of late…good luck luck finding people who still give a shit about him. Icon- get real!

  12. o says:

    here’s a little bit of information you might want to hold on to: america is not the world. like it or not, he’s an icon. and, for future reference, he was huge in america for a very long time. i’m sorry that america would rather worship the escapades of no-talents like britney spears and paris hilton, but no matter what anyone your little stateside bubble thinks . . . george michael has given the world a lot of incredible music and no one can take those accomplishments away from him. and if you really think all he’s famous for is bathroom sex then you really need to turn off your computer and go outside. his personal life aside, anyone with even a passing knowledge of music knows how much he’s contributed. and no matter what he does or doesn’t do in bathrooms and parks, he’s always going to be gifted and admired for his work.

  13. Girlygrrl says:

    Like it or not, the eighties are over, so he is no longer huge in this country. True or False? I think we know the answer to that. Everything else you wrote is speculation. Give us some facts or hightlights of his “huge” career in your country o, maybe that will help us who reside in the “stateside bubble” care. Or maybe not. Just a thought.

  14. o says:

    actually, i’m american and i was born in the 80s and i still know how much he’s accomplished. he’s sold something like 80 million records worldwide, he’s worked with paul mccartney, elton john and aretha franklin, to name a few, he was recently paid close to two million dollars to perform for a russian billionaire. in his career he’s had something like 30 top ten hits, and that’s between 82 and 99, by the way. his debut solo album has sold over 20 million alone worldwide. he actually wrote ‘careless whisper’ when he was 17. last year he had a number 1 single on uk dance charts, and he was considering touring north america because of the response from fans here. he’s never been afraid to take a stance on politics, he’s never been afraid to speak about any injustice, really. so i’m sorry if you can’t appreciate what he’s added to the history of music because ‘the 80s are over’ but you can’t change history and he’s clearly made his mark. and, by the way, the remark about the 80s being over is so utterly asinine and ignorant. lots of decades are over, but that doesn’t mean they didn’t add anything to the world. no one is saying you have to be a fan and go out and listen to his music, but don’t be an idiot because i’m kind of embarrassed for you. the man is a star.

  15. Breederina says:

    He’ll always be my father figure and my preacher teacher, ’till the end of time. . .

  16. Girlygrrl says:

    Please stop! Your embarassing yourself O, with all this talk going on and nobdy to care. I’m not even going to waste my time calling you an idiot. The last living GM fan speaks for itself , I think.

  17. Spread The Love says:

    When he sold out that European tour a few months ago and got great reviews, I was just thinking, yeah – he’s so over. Talent never dies. If you don’t like someone, fine. But don’t act as if the world revovles around you and your myopic views.

    I suppose in your world, Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra and Jimi Hendrix are over because their eras have passed. I guess there isn’t anyone who still admires their work.

    As far as the spectacularly stupid statement of finding people in America who still give a shit about him; we all know that there is ALWAYS someone who gives a shit about people. Even the most stupid, trifling, backwards assholes have people who give a shit. Isn’t that true Girlygrrl?

  18. Don't hate says:

    Girlygrrl: Its okay to have an opinion but don’t expect people to have the same line of thinking as yours.

    Indeed O is correct. George Michael, though his stardom may have lost its luster,however still no one can deny that he gives great music and the World loved him, whether he’s gay or not.

    I can’t believe you don’t know that he topped US charts. Where do you come with the thinking that he’s not big in the states???

    Where were you?
