Come on, Pink News, a story about a drunk George Michael is not newsworthy. As I look over to your Most Recent Stories bar I see “Scottish minister quits Kirk over gay ordination”, “Tories choose lesbian to fight Glasgow by-election”, “Alan Cummings dedicates show to HIV charity”, and “George Michael arrested”.
It seems to me that you have an opportunity here to post stories that are relevant to the political, social, and cultural struggles faced by gay and lesbian people on a daily basis, and the vast majority of your articles do just that.
But to report about a drunken George? Please. Leave the pablum to the Enquirer and the busy bodies gossiping across their backyard fences and focus on what is actually NEWS.
This could happened to everyone, George dont drink and because his past, everything he does seems a big thing.
Let him to leave his life like everyone like us .
George Michael arrested!
That’s never happened before! hope did not fall asleep again ;)
Swoon. What a man!
At least he is not Evelyn Waugh, having scandalous
Oxford affairs 90 years after the fact. GASP.
Note to George Michael – HIRE A DRIVER!!!!!!!!
So George Michael has been a silly boy again huh? So what! He’ll probably turn it into another hit record like he did after his incident in the LA cottage! Agreed, this is not gay news just a silly gay man who can’t hold his booze!
It’s astonishing that an article can open with ‘Openly gay…”. It smacks of red top sensational semantics. We all know George Michael is openly gay… I agree this is not leading news… Tragic as it is… The man definitely needs help…
Well, he was released without charge. A point most papers have neglected to mention. Also, not being able to walk straight after a road accident is a terrible way to decide if he’s been drinking or not. Concussion anyone?
Must admit I have never agreed with the ‘walk in a straight line’ test to assess your sobriety. Lots of people do not have a proper sense of balance for medical reasons and also being watched may very well make you nervous(!)
All because a famous person like George Michael has a car accident, People are so easy to add labels, & pass judgement without knowing the facts first.
Having an accident is a very traumatic experience that not only detach’s you from reality & focus at the time of the accident, it also scars you mentally & physically too.
So instead of grabbing at a quick publicity story at George’s expence, & dicrediting his name on pure speculation people should leave him alone & the others involved in the accident to recover, & resolve the incident through the appropriate channels together.
