Star signs multi-million pound publishing deal

George Michael has signed a multi-million pound publishing deal with Harper-Collins to write his autobiography.

The book is promised to be a “no holds barred” account of the eventful life of the singer.

Andy Stephens, Michael’s manager, said: “People aren’t stupid, they’re beginning to notice that the truth is more interesting than the stories the press come up with.”

Belinda Budge from Harper-Collins told AP the book would be “truly authentic”, suggesting that the book may not be ghost-written, as many autobiographies are.
