George Michael fans have been left delighted after a new single by the music legend was released today.

A posthumous single by the Wham! singer, who died on Christmas Day 2016, debuted on BBC Radio 2 yesterday, and was released for download today.

But one high-profile artist seems to be less than impressed by the release.

Boy George, who has previously spoken about not becoming friend with Michael, was asked about his view by a fan on Twitter.

The 56-year-old Culture Club singer, who was previously convicted of falsely imprisoning a male prostitute, seemed less than delighted in his reply.

“I have my own thoughts about it,” he told one follower.

He then added, diplomatically: “However. It’s good for George to be celebrated. Would he have been happy? Knowing how studious he was?”

Fantasy, the new single, has been recorded with Nile Rogers, who Michael was working with in his final months.

Boy George previously revealed he “never became friends” with George Michael.

Both Georges rose to fame in the 1980s, but George Michael refused to come out as gay until more than a decade later.

He previously told Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live that Michael “kept people out” during the final years of his life.

“I read stuff in the papers. But I never really knew really what – he really kept people out, he was quite private”, he told the show.

The two singers had exchanged regular insults during their early days in the music industry.

Boy George came out as gay long before George Michael, and it had been reported that he feuded over the Wham! singer’s reluctance to be out.

“We did, it wasn’t really a feud.

“In the ’80s, everyone – Peter Burns, me, we all used to be really bitchy about each other.

“It’s like the thing that you did in the ’80s with those pop magazines.

“Now it’s the housewives who do it!

“But in the ’80s, you just said vile things about everyone”, the singer, real name George O’Dowd, claimed.
