Normal George Michael Fears for his life....

Ok, read this....

http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmp...e_michael_dc_1

HELLO!!! I am sorry, but I have been a long time fan of GM and this is really ridiculous! How important does he think he is? He's not the first to poke fun at Politics and he isn't the last. Who would want to kill him? Give me a break, that's just ludicrous. Seems like a good excuse to never have to tour again, or release any material in NA. Nice work George... I am starting to think you really suck.

Normal oh please!

Personally I think he is just trying to draw some publicity and increase sales here in America.

I think that if this song get airplay here in America he would reconsider his concern for personal safety to promote his album.

He must provoke the people, because otherwise no one would speak about this hmmmm "song".

"Shoot the Dog" will not be released in the United States because the singer currently has no American record deal.
That just about says it all, ladies and gents.

I had the same thought; of course, Mr. Bowie recently declared that he will never again live in the UK due to the tabloid photographers harassing him; he has lived in NYC for awhile now and appreicates the privacy he has here in the US.

Well, yes, there are many good bands and artists without record deals. George Michael, however, used to have an American record deal but no longer has one, which I take as a reflection of his relevancy (or lack thereof) in the music scene.

I guess what I should've said was....why on Earth should he fear for his life in America if A)he's not even on the radar of the American music scene and B)He apparently doesn't have any plans to be because he doesn't even have a record contract out here - music isn't released here, very little exposure (of the non-indecent public toilet kind) as a result.

It's just a way for him to gain publicity by hyping up that he has a song that's maybe a little controversial. If it wasn't for this story in the news, I doubt most people would even know he had a new album out.

The funny thing is, he doesn't even have a new album out, it's just a single. Buddy hasn't written an original album in 6 years!

Hehe, oops. Goes to show how much I follow George Michael's career (or lack thereof).
