One interview. Three different edits.

George Michael must have one hell of a financial advisor if he can offer up music for free. “I’ve been very well remunerated for my talents over the years so I really don’t need any more of the public’s money,” he says.

Pretty good especially since his career has made a lot of stumbles in the last decade. A lawsuit with the label putting out his next album, getting arrested for public indecency, raising the ire of Bush-Blair supporters — had he spent the money he earned in the 80s already, he’d be hurting good.

“Believe me, I’ll be of very little interest to the press in a certain number of years,” Michael continues. Honey, that’s the reality now.
