25 JOINTS A DAY! Holy crap dude. 3-4 max
from music news
GEORGE MICHAEL has openly spoken about his drug use and his sexual habits.
The singer admitted that taking drugs was "just who I am" and confessed that he was in possession of crack cocaine when he was arrested last year in public toilets at Hampstead Heath.
Speaking to the Guardian, the 46-year-old former Wham! star didn't reveal the last time he had smoked the drug, but said he had cut back on his cannabis intake from 25 joints a day to seven or eight.
Michael, who is due to release the single December Song (I Dreamed of Christmas) as a download on 13th December - his first Christmas song since his 'Last Christmas' hit with Wham! - said he once spent his life "existing on a balance of Starbucks and weed".
He also spoke frankly about cruising for men on the Heath in north London, and said it was about finding "quick and honest sex".
He added: "The handful of times a year it's bloody warm enough, I'll do it. I'll do it on a nice summer evening. Quite often there are campfires up there.
"It's a much nicer place to get some quick and honest sex than standing in a bar, E'd off your tits shouting at somebody and hoping they want the same thing as you do in bed."
Michael also hit out at Sir Elton John, who publicly said he feared for Michael's health.
He said: "Elton lives on that. He will not be happy until I bang on his door in the middle of the night saying, íPlease, please, help me, Elton. Take me to rehab.í Itís 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 Iím sitting here in my ivory tower, Howard Hughesing myself with long fingernails and loads of drugs, then I canít do anything about that, can I?'
He added: 'People want to see me as tragic with all the cottaging and drug-taking... those things are not what most people aspire to, and I think it removes peopleís envy to see your weaknesses. I donít even see them as weaknesses any more. Itís just who I am."
