George Michael rules out Wham! reunion
George Michael has said that he and former Wham! partner Andrew Ridgeley will not reform the band.
Speaking to US magazine People, the gay singer said: “Wham! was about being young and exuberant and you can’t recreate that feeling at a certain age.
“Andrew Ridgeley and I are still good friends but I’m afraid we’ll never get back together. We both agree on that.”
He added: “We made some mistakes experimenting with our image. The shuttlecocks in my shorts – how stupid was that?
“When I see myself. I cringe mostly. Take the blond hair. I wanted to have long, blond, straight hair because I didn’t really want to be me.
“Looking back, I suppose I could have done without those curtain rings in my ears as well.”
Michael also revealed he did not like the hit song Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go.
“I’m not keen on that song,” he said. “I haven’t sung it for a long time.”
