Here's an interview from after the 25 Live tour I think, for those interested. You can also find parts 2 and 3 of the same interview on youtube. I found it quite enjoyable to listen to the guy. He is quite clearly sick of the media and talks about what a surprisingly warm reception he got in concert recently. Despite his reclusive nature, he comes off humble I think. Oh and... he talks about future plans regarding his music.

YouTube - George Michael 25 Live TV Interview June 2007 (Part 1)

Oh btw, this is pretty much his last song I think. "Through" from 2004's Patience:

Is that enough?
I think it's over
See, everything has changed
And all this hatred may just make me strong enough
To walk away

They may chase me to the ends of the earth
But I've got you babe
And they may strip me of the things that I've worked for
But I've had my say

So hear me now
I've enough of these chains
I know they're of my making
No one else to blame for where I stand today
I've no memory of truth
But suddenly the audience is so cruel
So God, hey God you know why I'm through

Through

I guess it's tough, I guess I'm older
And everything must change
But all this cruelty and money instead of love
People, have we no shame?

They may chase me to the ends of the earth
But I've got you babe
And they may take away the things that I've worked for
But you'll pull me through

It's so clear to me now
I've enough of these chains
Life is there for the taking
What kind of fool would remain in this cheap gilded cage
I've no memory of truth
But suddenly the audience is so cruel
Oh God, I'm sorry

I think I'm through
I think I'm through
I think I'm, I know I'm...


Are you happy now, America?

How is George Michael uncool? I've never been able to understand that. Yeah, that whole 'incident' in the 90s was embarassing, and he tends to blurt out really embarassing things in interviews, but as for his singing, songwriting, and music videos, the guy is incredibly talented.
