George Michael Back In Treatment, But For What?

George Michael, Seeking “Treatment”

Oh, George Michael.  We thought everything was going so well for you after seeing a rousing performance of “Freedom” at the Closing Ceremonies at the 2012 London Olympics.  What’s up?

Seems George has cancelled a string of concerts he was to perform in Sydney and other Australian cities in November and early December. These newly cancelled dates were make-up shows from cancelling the same shows last year due to a health scare in Vienna, in which the singer was hospitalized.

I have today announced the cancellation of the shows in Australia which breaks my heart. By way of explanation all I can say at this time is that since last year’s illness I have tried in vain to work my way through the trauma that the doctors who saved my life warned me I would experience. They recommended complete rest and the type of post traumatic counselling which is available in cases like mine but I’m afraid I believed (wrongly) that making music and getting out there to perform for the audiences that bring me such joy would be therapy enough in itself. Unfortunately I seriously underestimated how difficult this year would be and although I was right to believe that the shows would bring me great happiness and that my voice would recover completely (I truly think that some of my recent performances have been my best ever) I was wrong to think I could work my way through the major anxiety that has plagued me since I left Austria last December.

All that’s left for me to do is apologise to my wonderful Australian fan base and to promise faithfully that as soon as I completed these shows here in the UK I will receive the treatment which is so long overdue.

Of course we hope George gets the help he needs and can get back on the road as soon as possible. I feel terribly fortunate to have seen him in concert three times.  If you have tickets for the Australian shows, please go to GeorgeMichael.com for details on refunds.

George Michael to judge U.S. “X-Factor”?? Oh, PLEASE say it’s true!!!

George Michael - YES!!

Okay…we NEED George Michael.  We need him here in the U.S. judging people.  And believe me, I’ll take Simon Cowell and George Michael over JLo and Steven Tyler ANYday.  Stupid American Idol.

A source said: “George is going to take the job. It’s an amazing opportunity to get back in the limelight and reverse his recent bad spell. Simon knows that Americans love him. He is as big in the US as he is over here.

“He is a true star and has the wit and experience for the job. It’s the perfect platform to resurrect his career.”

Apparently Simon visited with George recently to discuss a position as a judge on the wildly popular reality show. Fingers crossed this happens.

Oh, Liam. You're such a butthole.

Oh, and it’s also being said that former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher has been asked to judge as well as some dude named Mick Jagger. Heh.  No word on those two…but can you IMAGE Liam judging these poor, scared singers?  He’s such a mean little bitch.  I think I would die of The Cringe just watching him berate the contestants!!  (I have a very low embarrassment threshold…)
