Quotes of George Michael Bio, Age, Parents, Siblings, Nationality, Net Worth, Height

# Quote
1 [on regaining consciousness after his 2011 coma] I swear this is true. I came out of my coma talking in this West Country accent. There's nothing wrong with a West Country accent, but it's a bit weird when you're from North London. My sisters, who were obviously so relieved that I'd actually woken up, were just laughing away at this stand-up comedy.
2 [on performing at the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert in 1992] To sing with Queen was the most memorable moment of my career.
3 [on surviving severe pneumonia at Christmas 2011] Best Christmas I can remember, surrounded by the people I love. And knowing that Christmas could have been very different this year for everyone at that table. As it was we stuffed and laughed ourselves silly. I'm such a lucky man! I hope you all had a great one.
4 [on the death of Freddie Mercury in 1991] Freddie Mercury was a huge source of inspiration to me as a child. I religiously attended Queen's concerts year after year. This is a sad day.
5 It is such an amazing feeling to watch the effect I have on my audience. There is no question that is the most valuable thing I can ever do in terms of contribution and it seems that God wanted me to and gave me the voice to do it and the stamina to do it.
6 I have a serious problem with the fact that every time I made a mistake and every time I let myself down that I was letting young gay kids down.
7 Loyalty can be different things to different sexualities.
8 As an artist I'm not interested in repeating former successes.
9 I do love Christmas. I always have loved it, ever since I was a child. When I was young both my parents used to work so hard and they always seemed quite stressed to me. But at Christmas everyone would calm down and be nice to each other for a few days, and that used to make me feel very safe. It's Frank Sinatra who reminds me of Christmas. During the school holidays, when I was a kid, I used to work behind the bar of my dad's restaurant in Edgware [North London], and he'd always play Sinatra records for the customers. So that association is very strong for me. Why doesn't it snow at the right time anymore, like it did in the '60s? If it could snow on Christmas Eve or something that would be perfect.
10 [on doing concerts] People run on and off the stage, but usually they're removed before they get to me. It's not really frightening. There's always the possibility that someone's going to take a potshot at you; you take that risk when you perform in front of thousands of people.
11 [on his time in prison in September/October 2010] Most of my days have been spent reading thousands of letters and postcards of incredible support from people around the world. I promise to repay their kindness with new music as soon as I possibly can.
12 I just hope that I'll stay around musically for as long as I can. I'd love to think that I will still be satisfying myself and other people as a musician until the day I die.
13 There are very few things in my life that I can't have if I want them. So when I see something that I think I can't have, immediately I'm obsessed by it.
14 I'm basically a control freak. It's not because I want to be. I'm not at all into the power play that's involved in it. I'm a perfectionist.
15 I know I'm basically a good person whose two crimes appear to be that I'm gay and I've got a big mouth to go with it.
16 [on his arrest for lewd behavior] When someone is waving their genitalia at you, you don't automatically assume that they're an officer of the law.
17 Boy George is great company and a man I have always wanted to like. He acts in a homophobic way to other gay men by being such a bitch. It's an aggression that he can't get rid of.
18 [on Elton John's concern for him] Elton lives on that. He will not be happy until I bang on his door in the middle of the night saying: 'Please, please, help me, Elton. Take me to rehab.' It's not going to happen. Elton just needs to shut his mouth and get on with his own life. Look, if people choose to believe that I'm sitting here in my ivory tower, 'Howard Hughes'ing myself with long fingernails and loads of drugs, then I can't do anything about that, can I?
19 [on Tony Blair] His problem is, one, he's not as smart as he thinks he is and, two, this man does not know when his ego is getting the better of him... A man who will not stare his ego down is every bit as dangerous as an altruist as he is a Hitler.
20 [on his August 2009 car crash] If that juggernaut had killed me, I think I'd be perfectly happy with the amount of quality music I have left in the world. My ego is sated.
21 Elton John said he thought I was miserable for some reason and I have been trying to prove that I'm not ever since. The subtext to it is always, 'He was all right before he came out and now he lives this depraved gay life and is miserable and fat' and from that point on I have suffered this kind of wishful thinking from the Press.
22 Women seem to ignore the fact that I'm gay. I think that women really get the feeling that I understand them. I grew up with two sisters, I went out with women when I was younger. I do understand them, unfortunately.
23 I think pop music should be about youth culture. It shouldn't be an endurance test. If I can just live further from the spotlight I think that'll be better for all really.
24 Running naked up and down Oxford Street singing I Am What I Am would have been a more dignified way to come out. (On his arrest for lewd conduct in 1998)
25 Gay relationships are a bit different. I'm sure we'll be allowed to roam if we want to. But we love each other dearly. (On his long-term partner, Kenny Goss)
26 It is nice to know that the News of The World is still so concerned for my well being.
27 Parkinson (1971) is still the only interview on British TV that means anything. Perhaps that is because he appears to realize that his guest should always be the star of the show and... He paid for dinner!
28 In a strange way I've spent the last 15 to 20 years trying to derail my own career. But it never seems to suffer. I suffer like crazy. I've suffered bereavements and public humiliations, but my career always seems to right itself like a plastic duck in the bath. In some ways I resent that.
29 I have been doing this on and off since I was a teenager and never once seen violence. If I want to see violence or what I call shameful behaviour, the idea that women in clubs these days have to hold their hand over their drink for fear of being drugged ... Please don't tell me as a member of the straight community that I am taking risks. I know what I do and I am sorry, but we should not be taking questions like this, from straight women in particular ... I do not deserve the criticism. What I don't have respect for is some demand for answers from an openly gay man who is living his own life. I have not cheated or lied about my sex life to anybody in my life, in my entire life. I hate not to be able to rise above it, but there is only so much you can take. I'm suing the individual involved who I have never, ever seen, let alone wanted to have any kind of sexual encounter with, and I'm currently investigating suing the secondary sources of libel. I am taking legal action against the photographers because they're harassing me and I should not have to worry about who's watching me at 2:30 in the morning.
30 "The trajectory of my particular soap opera with the press launched from that statement Elton made about eighteen months ago when Elton hadn't seen me for years. Elton said he thought I was really miserable for some reason. From that point on I've been trying to prove that I'm not. Unfortunately it made me incredibly vulnerable to the press." (April 2006)
31 It was my own stupid fault. I was in possession of class C drugs which is an offence and I have no complaints about the police, who were professional throughout.
32 Even though it's become a really cliched thing to see musicians working for charity, it's still effective and it still has to be done.
33 I still believe that music is one of the greatest gifts that God gave to man.
34 I do think that Live Aid (1985) was a great thing, it focused people, I think it showed young kids the way in many respects and I think a lot of people are still inspired by what happened in the mid-Eighties.

3 In September 2010, while serving a prison sentence for driving under the influence of drugs, George received a two-page handwritten letter from Sir Paul McCartney to lift his spirits. In the letter, McCartney said that he empathised with George as he himself had spent ten days in prison in Japan in 1980 after being caught with cannabis. He told George to keep his chin up and that he would see him when he is released. Apparently, George was delighted with the letter and read it over and over again.
