Only REUTERS can keep us abreast of the happenings of the "gay grapevine"

    George Michael Hits Back in War of Words with Elton
    Tue Dec 14,12:41 PM ET

    LONDON (Reuters) - Singer George Michael has issued a stinging reply to uncomplimentary remarks made by Elton John , which he said were garnered from gossip on the "gay grapevine."

    In a very public spat between two of Britain's best known and successful gay artists, Michael published a letter in a celebrity magazine released on Tuesday in which he hit back at John's recent criticism of his private life.

    In an interview with Heat magazine last month, 57-year-old John said Michael appeared to be in a "strange place," wasting his talent by staying at home and shunning the limelight.

    He also described as "a bit disappointing" Michael's album "Patience," which topped the British charts this year.

    "Elton John knows very little about George Michael, and that's a fact," Michael retorted in the letter.

    "Sadly, I was always aware that Elton's circle of friends was the busiest rumor mill in town and that respect for my privacy was not exactly guaranteed.

    "He knows that I don't like to tour, that I smoke too much pot and that my albums still have a habit of going to Number One. In other words, he knows as much as most of my fans do."

    Michael, 41, said he had "rarely been as happy," thanks to his partner Kenny and the support of his fans.

    John is renowned for outbursts about fellow stars. In October, he accused Madonna of "lip-synching."

Agreed. I'm not sure I can get as into gay pop star feuds as I can when rappers start hating on each other.

George whining about being a star is nothing new. There was an article in the Los Angeles Times back in 1994 about George Michael the "reluctant" pop star.

It was followed in a later issue with a rebuttal letter to the editor...from none other than Francis Albert Sinatra, telling Michael to loosen up.

It's printed in The Way You Wear Your Hat: Frank Sinatra and the Lost Art of Livin'.

I doubt the ghost of Freddie would intervene. He would've joined their friendship in its prime if he cared.

Why can't I rate you higher then a 10 for that? You obviously deserve a billion...

I just wanna see a fight between the two of them, and not a fight of words cause I believe Elton John can beat the shit outta George Michael quite easily.

I dunno, I think Michael would have the definite advantage in any fight. He's younger and keeps in better shape. "Look at that butt!" [/Dana Carvey]

In a related story, Elton John's latest album is kinda average, but George Michael's latest album is terrible. Advantage: Elton (though I'm biased since I'm a big Elton fan).




I'm interested in selling my youngest daughter into slavery as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. She's a Georgetown sophomore, speaks fluent Italian, always cleared the table when it was her turn. What would a good price for her be? While thinking about that, can I ask another? My Chief of Staff Leo McGarry insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly says he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself or is it okay to call the police? Here's one that's really important because we've got a lot of sports fans in this town: touching the skin of a dead pig makes one unclean. Leviticus 11:7. If they promise to wear gloves, can the Washington Redskins still play football? Can Notre Dame? Can West Point? Does the whole town really have to be together to stone my brother John for planting different crops side by side? Can I burn my mother in a small family gathering for wearing garments made from two different threads? Think about those questions, would you?

I'm not a huge fan of either but a bad Elton album is much better than a good George album. After George has been at it for over thirty years he can bitch. The major difference is that Elton John is actually talented, orientation aside.

I dunno. What about trading disses? It's going to be hard to beat the Elton John f/Eminem track.

Nope. He's thinking of Carvey as Michael on Weekend Update, trying to use the persuasion powers of his British Buttocks.
