I think we can all agree that George Michael is a little weird.
He once thought it was okay to do this.
He’s the one on the left.
Obviously George felt that his mesh shirt was in fact not casual wear, therefore it needed to be tucked into his stone washed jeans.
I’m sure the gay community was very pleased with this.
Random Gay Man in 1985: “Great George! Just fucking great. Really, thanks for that. We have a hard enough time as it is without you prancing around like a fucking idiot in mesh shirts. Do us a favor and keep denying that you’re gay. Please.”
George has also been involved in many Unpleasant Situations over the years.
But one thing that George has done, which makes me forever have love for him, is grace us with the song “Freedom! ’90.”
This song is pure genius. And it’s time we give George some dap.
It’s all about his struggles with being in the closet as well as his desire to break free from the shackles that his record label had put on his career.
That’s right – shackles. I only use that word when I’m Being Smart.
George does it right in this song.
“I think there’s something you should know
I think it’s time I stopped the show
There’s something deep inside of me
There’s someone I forgot to be!
Take back your picture in a frame
Don’t think that I’ll be back again
I just hope you understand
Sometimes the clothes do not make the man!”
Get off him!
George is telling you to take your preconcieved thoughts and toss them in the trash!
He doesn’t need you anymore! It’s time to stop the damn show – he’s done with it!
Oh, and that picture in the frame?
You better be taking that back to where you got it, because George is not that person anymore.
Now that I’ve enlightned you to just how awesome this song is, George doesn’t seem that weird at all, does he?
Sure, some of us may think that mesh shirts are Not Okay, but I think we can all agree that this song is bad ass.
And for that, George, I thank you.
