Will GEORGE MICHAEL be remembered as a gay icon?

Or will he go down in history for having the weirdest bunch of fans?

Today is the first anniversary of the unveiling of the Blue Plaque at Bushey Mead's, GM's and Andrew Ridgeley's old school. I see hardly any fans commemorating this event. Why is this? Maybe the "ultimate fans" are still too embarrassed about the disaster, they tried to pass off as a success. And they still haven't answered the questions where all the fans' money ended up.

I have come to the conclusion that GM doesn't mean much to today's gay youth. They are all far too mainstream, want to get married and adopt children. For them GM is just a freak from goneby days with all his praising of promiscuity and cruising and even calling this "my culture". Unfortunately the straightwashing of GM by his predominantly female fans doesn't seem to concern the gay community at all.

R6, that assessment is sobering.

I think GM's oeuvre is difficult to understand unless you lived through the Wham! years and the Faith album. He rose quickly from 1982 to 1992 (in terms of fame and commercial success) and then wasn't in the global limelight much anymore, at least for his music. Although "Listen Without Prejudice" is my favorite of his albums, I remember that those around me at the time (college kids in the U.S. who had grown up with GM on their radios) didn't care much after the Freedom 90 vid.

He was still followed much more intensely in the UK, though.

Because he died on Christmas and I was "busy" that day, I've never fully absorbed that he passed away. His death didn't get the press I was expecting here in the U.S., which annoyed me but also kept my fuzzy notion that he was somehow still around.

The whitewashing of GM by his lovelies is despicable. They still entertain the notion he simply did not meet the girl of his dreams. They sweep under the rug anything he says about being a gay man -- from his cruising to love of sex. Then say focus only his music, but not on his sexual preferences. But GM is about his sexual preferences. He talked about that incessantly!

George never had beards. I don't understand why people cant hate that George dated women . He was sexual confused around that time and focus more on his career, then his sex life. Also R18, R24 those George Michael fans only discuss him being gay and nothing else. They also build up those two escorts as being the loves of his life.

How they wish escort one or two had stayed in George's life. He would still be with us today and that is the biggest laugh. If escort one stayed in George's life. George would have died before 2016. Escort two was only there for the money and the fame. Just look how he is using these weak minded women to support his foundation.

Can we stop focusing on Anselmo. I can see that the Tweeter fans of Anselmo and Kenny are coming into this thread. I really hate that David changed George's doc Freedom and added Anselmo into it. Thus killing George's career. I always got the feeling that David and Andros both were jealous of George and his talent. Because if David really cared for George's legacy, he would had focus on his music. Not who he fucked because that's all what George's fake "fans" choose to focus on.

The only thing they got from that doc. was George changing history again. Adding Anselmo to that concert when other who were present don't remember nor mention him at all. That's whole different story. That doc was to focus on George's lawsuit with Sony and how he fought for his freedom to create the music he wanted. No, these fans only chose to focus on Anselmo and fan fiction this relationship as some great love. For those who are trigger read those Fadi and The Man who not be Buried series. It's very educational on what was really going on.

by Anonymousreply 5505/05/2019

I believe most of those people claiming to fans of George. Are really individuals who want to be a part of something. I think George's death gave most of these lonely people something to live for, so they repost and focus on George's sex life and not the music. I would not be surprise if these people own any of his music. People talk about Michael Jackson fans, but when you compare the two. George fan bas "lovelies" are a sad group of people who just want to be counted. Just look at Bowie, Prince hell even Jackson. These men are the lead in their legacy. When you research them are go to fan Twitters account. They are talking about them and their impact on music and their live. How these men change music and memories of when they went to concert are favorite songs.

George is the only one sharing the spotlight with his three paid whores. Some fans are saying we need to make sure Anselmo or Kenny is remembered. For what blowing George Michael. Say what you want about Janet's and Bon Jovi's fans. They made sure there music favorite are in the Hall of Fame. Meanwhile George fans only care and repost George love Kenny (who sold George out to the Sun) and Anselmo who went straight to AIDS while skipping the HIV ? Fadi who post damaging things about

George when every some positive news about him is posted. Then you have lying Andros who these fans believe and hang on to his words as if its truthful. David the failure who is running George estate. A man who could not make a hit at all is responsible for a globe icons legacy. Three years in and we still at the some stage only the escort are in the spotlight and George is ninth billing in his own story.

The Christie's auction was to showcase George philanthropy, but it became the George love Kenny show. His fans were focusing on Kenny and not George's philanthropy work. David did this again with the Freedom documentary went from being about George's lawsuit and became the Anselmo story. Poor George a talented man but surrounded by a group of users, losers and liars. It no wonder he use drugs to cope with life. The sad part of this, George created this mess. Well that critic said that in twenty years George will be remember for the talented man he should be known for. That was two years ago so in a few years George will final be in the spotlight of his legacy.

Have the "lovelies" gotten over the fact by now that GM was a passionate art collector? That he was actually very much into some kind of art that the majority of his fans finds rather offensive? That he was secretly supporting a few artists who haven't "come out" yet as artists, let alone revealed their GM connection? Do they still hang on to the idea that GM was only manipulated by Kenny to spend millions for stuff that only Kenny liked? Looks like the mantra "the truth will come out" is not pleasing everyone and many are not able to adapt their image of GM to facts. Poor fans.

The Facebook group "The OFFICIAL George Michael birthday tribute weekend in Goring" had its name changed recently to simply "The George Michael birthday celebrations". It was about time to stop the nonsense, making naive lovelies from all over the world believe, that this was indeed some official event. As we know by now: no so called official event this year in Goring. The Goring locals and the council simply had enough of these people playing "fundraisers" and trying to make their own names known as fans with a connection to the GM family. Only it didn't work out. Too much backstabbing, manipulation, bad mouthing, dirty tricks, plain lying and sidelining of others at last year's so called non profit event. Guess, what explanation was given for the cancellation of this year's celebration? Bullying!!! Doesn't this cause you a hysterical laughing fit, too? When bullies fuck it up, they blame others of bullying. Classical! But they didn't name the bullies, isn't it interesting? Has anyone witnessed any bullying? Because it only happened in their imagination and they are unable to cope with their failure. They have to show proof of this so called bullying now. Unless they do, so they should walk away and never come back. They've done tremendous harm to the reputation of GM and his fans. The creator of this thread might not have them in mind, but they do indeed qualify for "fans from hell". How sad.

So much of that GQ interview seems bizarre - like him claiming he was straight until puberty but having no father made him bond with his mother which somehow made him unable to bond emotionally with women (this based on a dream involving nuns when he was a kid) and this him bisexual. He claims he is more sexually attracted to women but he and his then partner were having tons of gay sex with other men not women - you would think that if he was sexually but not emotionally attracted to women he would be fucking women even if he had to hire prostitutes.

That interview was from 2003 and it sounds like he still wanted very much to be straight - it was pathetic actually.

Regarding sexuality, I agree that for anyone who would consider themself bisexual (myself included) then it is fluid. I have straight male and female friends whose stomachs churn at the thought of them having sex with the same sex. Same with a gay friend of mine he has never been remotely attracted to women sexually, again he said it somewhat stomach churning.

I believe it matters not what sexuality any of us are, but as it is up for discussion on this annoymous forum, then I would suggest George was visually attracted to both men and women (which he had admitted) but engaged with men more mentally and couldn't get exactly what he wanted from a woman, being a supposed bottom and as he said he didn't feel able to switch because of risks, he decided to cut his losses and pursue his gains and stick with men. I think that's quite valiant.

Obviusly no expert but I would suggest there is a huge difference between being gay, straight or bisexual....or have I got it terribly wrong?

This is the main obstacle for being recognised as the musical genius that he was.

Indirectly, of course! How can she promote a monster who endangers his daughters as THE media professional who should be trusted with a legacy website for GM? Being the son of a undoubtedly successful father unfortunately doesn't guarantee that the son has the same talents. In Nick Lippman's case, it is evident that he has no class what so ever.

Ever since Wham U.K. came out when I was a preteen I assumed he was gay. But when MTV was playing his "I Want Your Sex" video the VJ went on and on about how the asian girl in the video was actually George Michael's girlfriend and I was like, wait I figured everybody knew he was gay but now he is pushing a hetero narrative. Just weird all around.

He was too slutty and he got old fast. Nice voice though.

R97 Those ladies are crazy. Did you see how a fan ask Terry about the donations she received last for the tribute? Terry is claiming that she didn't say nor write the article that publish these claims. That a mysterious person had stated they would make this donations. Nothing put a bunch of crooks.

R97 This Marisela S. woman is so damn stupid. She simply doesn't understand what child endangerment by posting pictures of children on social media means. These children are NOT endangered by people, who post profile pictures of accounts, in which the account owner happens to show his children, but the children aren't even subject of the discussion. BUT: how would these irresponsible parents even know whether these pictures are already circulating amongst pedophiles? In case Mrs S. finds herself in the situation one day of having to explain to her son, why his picture is in the hands of perverts, I wish her a lot of "fun". SHE didn't care about his safety. SHE is responsible. She can't blame anybody, but herself.

R101 Mrs S and Mr Lippman were/are posting pictures of their young children (definitely too young to consent) all over social media for the public. THEIR irresponsible behaviour endangers the children! Period! Their narcistic need to show them off is the problem in the first place.

R94 I second "... under appreciated musical genius." He really was incredibly talented - a true poet. I don't give a shit about his personal life... Let it go for god's sake.

GM team keep posting from the official social media accounts. What are they up to? Are these posts teasers for ... what???

FF was featured in the tabloid press again today. Unfavourably, of course. But it made the lovelies SO HAPPY! Finally an occasion to show their real selves again, which means their prejudiced, small-minded, uneducated egos. Full of themselves and their victim complex, accompanied by cowardice and the obviously complusatory hypocrisy and self-righteousness. Leading on Twitter on all these respects are the Lippman trolls, who are having a field day, bursting into dramatic relevations of the context of it all. Once again. Yawn! To shorten this post now: Fadi is the one and only reason for their misery and must be destroyed. Pssst! It's called spreading love and kindness! Yes, the fans killed GM's reputation. I have no doubt about this.

Most of his music is forgettable, Wham's is mostly embarrassing - "Wake me up for you go-go". I doubt he will go the distance.
