Update to singer's website sparks concern among fans
A representative for George Michael has denied rumours that the singer may be retiring after fans became concerned by an update to his official website yesterday.
Fans visiting the singer’s official site are now greeted with a pair of red curtains and a message promising news in 2014. However, as The Sun reports, some fans took this to mean that Michael may be retiring and that the curtains are illustrative of the end of his career.
Speaking to NME, a representative for Michael says, “I do not understand where people are getting any of this from. Our team that deal with the website and fan club were just being creative when they blackened out the website and added a curtain. This is only to give space and time to make some really exciting news for 2014.”
“George Michael is in great shape and next year promises to be a lovely year musically for George, and all of his fans!”
George Michael made headlines earlier this year when he was airlifted to hospital in May after apparently falling from his car on the M1 motorway. An eyewitness said that Michael had fallen from his vehicle after trying to close the car door while the vehicle was in motion.
