Oh, God. George Michael is in Australia to perform at several sold-out concerts, and it seems like George is enjoying the Aussie gay scene quite a bit. George has got the iPhone app Grindr, which apparently all the gay dudes use to hook up…? Sure. Anyway, George has been “grindr-ing” lots of Aussie dudes under the name “Back for Wood”. Which is kind of an awesome name. I wish I had thought of a cool handle like that. I bet Gerard Butler’s hetero handle is “Back for Vadge”. And whatever city he’s in, he contacts all women he’s ever met with the message, “Gerard Butler is ‘Back for Vadge’”. By the way, George is still officially with his long-term boyfriend, so I have no idea if George’s long-term relationship involves lots of Aussie strange or what.
The pop singer, famous for getting arrested cruising for sex in a public toilet, is now on Grindr, a location-based iPhone app that allows gay men to meet up via their phones. And he’s terrorizing Australia’s gays with it.
On a recent vacation down under, it appears Michael logged on to the service under the profile “Back for Wood” and contacted several men. But his randy behavior in Australia wasn’t restricted to his iPhone. While he was in Sydney to perform at several sold-out shows, Michael was also spotted hanging out at several gay bars and was also seen partying on a boat with a ripped gentleman. Fortunately, since Grindr displays where a user is located, it should be easier than ever to stay out of his way.
If you’d like to see photos of George’s pasty body partying with a really hot Aussie dude, go here. Australia’s Daily Telegraph notes that George “ditched industry invitations on the night of the Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras parade to visit Oxford St cafes and make new friends.” Translation: he ditched Australia’s establishment gays to troll for strange in a series of seedy bars, yachts, public toilets and back alleys. You know what? I kind of love George Michael. He’s so unapologetic. And he seems like he would be a lot of fun!
Oh, and I really want this suitcase:
