*Hark! There’s a rather gorgeous f-bomb right around 02:42.
George Michael comes from a long line of tortured pop gods. There’s not much new about his story that we haven’t seen before: He’s had issues with alcohol and drugs. He’s gone through the great and terrible sadness of having to hide his sexual identity. He’s been marked by fame in such a brash way that it’s made him a changed man.
There’s something gilded and grandiose and weirdly earth-bound about George Michael that has really been striking me across the chops lately…
A brand new story will post at 2 p.m., CST. today.
Prepare to read the first Bluebird Sessions… in over seven months.
Are you ready? Are you feeling good?
Happy Friday everybody!
