So, You're Driving Along And See George Michael Fall Out Of His Car At 70mph


George Michael

We literally have no idea how George Michael isn't dead. The superstar singer fell from his car on the M1 motorway whilst travelling at 70mph. Remember when your Dad would do that cool thing when his door wasn't properly shut? He'd open it whilst the car was moving at a high speed and slam it shut. Only your Dad was wearing his seatbelt. And your Dad wasn't speeding along down the M1. And your Dad didn't fall out onto the motorway.

Reports suggest George tried the old slam-the-door-shut trick while travelling as a passenger but ended up in the middle of the carriageway. Stunned driver Katherine Fox, 23, skidded to a halt as the singer hit the ground dressed in an Adidas tracksuit and sunglasses. "There was a nasty cut on his forehead and the back of his head. There was blood all down his face and on his teeth.He was breathing and conscious but in shock," she told The Sun. Katherine was driving behind a silver Range Rover when George suddenly tumbled from a passenger door onto the third lane of the carriageway. "I saw blood everywhere and a man on the ground," she added, "I thought someone had run across the road and been hit.I asked what had gone on and was told he tried to open the car door and shut it again because it wasn't shut properly and apparently fell out at 70mph."

The singer - who was close to death after contracting pneumonia last year - was in the car with two friends. He was airlifted to hospital on Thursday from the scene at the M1's junction 6A with the M25. Hours later, his boyfriend Fadi Fawaz told press outside the couple's North London home, "I've spoken to him and he's good." He was treated for cuts and bruises.

George Michael's Back In The Studio, But After The Olympics, Who’s Listening?


George Michael Spice Girls The Who

George Michael is working on a new album, according to his Twitter feed today (January 25, 2013). The pop star, who made it big in the ‘80s as part of Wham! and went on to have a successful solo career with songs such as ‘Careless Whisper’ and ‘Faith,’ has been talking about the possibility of a new album for some months, but has now confirmed that the recording process is underway, with a tweet that read “Hi everyone, hope you are all well, just to let you know I've been back in the studio a few weeks now, working on the new record....”

After suffering a serious bout of pneumonia, which left him fighting for his life, George Michael managed to stage a remarkable comeback, which culminated in him performing at last year’s London 2012 Olympics ceremony. However, the response to his performance there was probably not what George expected. Dressed in black leather and reflective shades, the 49 year old started off well, with a performance of his old classic, ‘Freedom 90,’ which fit in well with the nostalgic feel of the event, which also saw the likes of The Spice Girls and The Who perform. Everything went wrong for George Michael, though, when he used the opportunity to promote his new single, which was obviously not such a popular choice for the crowd, who were getting into the sing-along nature of the event.

Suddenly, a nation turned on George. No sooner were we praising his physical recovery than we were calling for him to be banished from the world of pop, for his commercial faux pas. So, George, you might be busy recording a new album, but some of us are still sulking over the Olympics, you know.

Mariah Carey Sings 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' On Jimmy Fallon; Plus, Our Top 5 Christmas Songs


Mariah Carey Leigh Francis The Darkness George Michael The Pogues Kirsty Mccoll David Bowie Bing Crosby

Mariah Carey ruddy loves reminding us that she sang one of the best known Christmas pop songs of all time. Just in case her original version of 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' wasn’t played enough around this time of year as it was, she also decided to pop up wearing a really quite short Santa’s outfit alongside then 17 year-old Justin Bieber in re-do of the song last year.

So we were pretty firmly on Carey watch this year, just waiting to see when she’d pop up to offer yet another ‘fresh’ update on her ubiquitous track. And it happened with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots in tow. In fairness, the chat show host sort of asked for it; he was going to perform a version of the song anyway with rappers The Roots in tow on toy instruments. Trust Carey to want to get in on the act though; sure enough, after the slow intro, there she was in a red dress, admittedly still hitting the notes and taking center stage as the rest of them played amiably behind her. Reports that she’d rushed off soon after the show because her senses had picked up a family in the Tulsa region about to get going on their own karaoke version of the song in their living room remain unsubstantiated.

Check out Carey join Fallon and The Roots below; then scroll down to see our own festive top 5.

George Michael's "Major Anxiety" Causes Australian Tour To Be Cancelled


George Michael

The George Michael tour of Australia has been cancelled, reports The Chicago Tribune, because of the "major anxiety" he is suffering following a turbulent year for his health.

He had been due to open in Australia in Perth on November 10 before performing in Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Hunter Valley on December 1, but the WHAM singer, who fell ill in Vienna last November, was treated under intensive care for a month for a life-threatening illness, and is still feeling the effects now. "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," Michael said. "They recommended complete rest ... 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." Ticket holders for his much-anticipated string of gigs down under will receive a full refund.

George Michael's Live Comeback Still Not Quite Up And Running In Glasgow


George Michael Rihanna

It's been a while to wait for George Michael,'s fans but they're finally getting to see the pop legend playing live again after a year that's seen the former Wham! man battle back to recover from pneumonia contracted shortly before he was due to play Vienna in 2011. It was that city where he re-started his Symphonica tour earlier in the month, and he finally made a return to Scotland over the weekend, playing the first of two nights at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre in Glasgow (September 23rd).

"I know you had to wait a year and I know it's been a tough year," said the 49 year-old to the crowd according to The Independent, thanking them for their patience whilst he got better from his illness. Michael hasn't forgotten the battle he had last year; at Vienna earlier in the month he put aside 1000 tickets to the medical staff of the hospital who saved him as a thank you, and whilst performing at the Olympic Closing Ceremony he elected to perform his last single 'White Lights' which references is struggle with the illness.

At Glasgow, as on the other dates, he elected to sing a mixture of his own and other people's hits, the results being decidedly mixed, according to The Independent - New Order's True Faith and Rihanna's Russian Roulette taking a particular butchering. Nevertheless, hits like Amazing and Freedom 90 ensured that the fans went home happy.
