George Michael expressed his “remorse” after being nabbed Friday for loitering around a public toilet and possessing a drug thought to be crack cocaine. Michael, of course, has had many public run-ins revolving around drugs and public sex, like that time in 1998 when he flashed a cop. That scandal forced him out of the closet.
That said, please forgive us for not being moved by his apology: “I want to apologize to my fans for screwing up again, and to promise them I’ll sort myself out. And to say sorry to everybody else, just for boring them.”
The public may not be as understanding as Michael would like, with scores leaving disheartened messages on his website. Wrote one irate fan, “…George shows signs of stupidity I only thought people such as Pete Doherty were capable of.” That’s cold.
Lucily, cops let Michael off with a warning. Perhaps they’ve realized he’s a slow a learner.
