Crack sure is never good...

George Michael 'caught with crack cocaine in public lavatory'
By Jonathan Brown
Monday, 22 September 2008

The pop singer George Michael has apologised for "screwing up again" after it emerged he was arrested in a public lavatory at the weekend for possession of drugs, thought to include cannabis and crack cocaine.

Michael, who recently announced his retirement from live performances on completing a triumphant sellout world tour to mark 25 years in the music industry, has a history of drug use and depression.

In a statement to fans last night Michael said: "I want to apologise 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."

Michael was arrested after a tip-off from a suspicious lavatory attendant who spotted him loitering. Police confirmed that a 45-year-old man understood to be the former Wham! star was arrested by officers on Hampstead Heath, north London, a short drive from the mansion he shares with Kenny Goss, his long-term partner.

The run-down Victorian South End Green lavatories are a notorious meeting place for gay men who go cruising on and around the Heath.

In 1998, after years of denying he was gay, Michael was forced to "come out" when he was arrested by undercover police officers for engaging in lewd conduct in a public lavatory in California. Since then he has had two more brushes with the law Ė for driving under the influence of banned substances.

In October 2006 he was found slumped in the seat of his car in central London. Last May he was given a two-year ban after being behind the wheel under the influence of drugs.

But while he has long laughed off his interest in "cruising" for sex Ė saying his partner supports his behaviour Ė and insisted his drug use is confined to marijuana, the latest episode will fuel anxieties that the troubled star's personal life is out of control.

After the arrest, Tony McNulty, the Home Office minister, was forced to defend Scotland Yard's decision to let Michael off with a caution just three months after Sir Ian Blair, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner, said drug-using celebrities should be brought to trial. Mr McNulty said: "The biggest message is that drugs are wrong and people will be punished, but it must be right that there is flexibility in the law." Possession of a class A drug, such as the crack cocaine that Michael is alleged to have had, can carry a prison sentence of up to seven years or an unlimited fine.

Despite selling more than 100 million records, Michael has struggled to enjoy his success. He has described how he was unable to come to terms with his sexuality until his mid 20s.

The singer then suffered two personal tragedies, losing his long-term partner Anselmo Feleppa to HIV and then struggling to cope with the death of his mother Lesley in 1997. He said he started smoking cannabis and taking Prozac to cope with the grief.

Despite his insistence during his recent tour that he was looking for a quieter life, fans were hopeful that Michael may have been poised for renewed creativity when he revealed he had written a new Christmas song.

He had also spoken candidly about his cannabis use, telling BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs: "I can afford my marijuana so that's not a problem."

Those looking to understand his inner life may have to wait for the publication of a "no-holds barred" autobiography. The publisher HarperCollins signed a multimillion-pound deal with the singer earlier this year.

You have to laugh, don't ya?  Ok, he's not had a hit in a while, but most people are going to recognise him, even with his eyeballs like saucers. 

Why can't he just do it at home, get a few guys round, call his dealer, make a night of it.

He does seem to have particular penchant for ug distinguished guys with personality.

At least his boyfriend, Kenny is sticking by his multi-millionaire true love.

Anyhoo, back to George.  If you get caught having your end away in a toilet, do you still get put on the Sex Offenders Register? 

Sounds like a bit of a risky strategy, particularly for someone so well known.

It is indeed technically possible; but no-one gives a shit somewhere like Hampstead Heath where, unless you have the misfortune to be come upon by some pissy little toilet attendant who thought he had an opportunity to make a quick quid and name for himself (as something other than the complete and utter wanker that he so clearly is), I doubt you would even get so much as an informal tug of the collar.

For personal small-quantity possession of a Class A it is. In fact, had he not been rich and famous there is a very good chance he wouldn't even have been cautioned. Can you imagine if the Metropolitan Police had to process every gay found in possession of Class A controlled substances? They'd spend one day a week nicking and the next six processing.

Remember that a caution does go on your criminal record (along with your photograph, fingerprints and DNA) and may also include a fine, punitive attendance conditions, all manner of conditions and possibly even having your name added to the Sex Offenders Register. It is just a device to avoid wasting court time where the accused readily admits their guilt and is willing to accept Police justice.

he should just build a public toilet at the back of his nearby property. there would be an unending supply of poofs dying for the chance to jerk off with George or suck his dick. He could even charge an admission fee to cover his cannabis and crack usage

Whilst that may (or may not) actually have been what he was there for - and may be the basis of many of the rumours - that is not what he was cautioned for. Neither the attendant nor the Police have made any reference to sexual acts - in fact, all they have talked about was his "confused" state and the fact that drugs were found. Nor is there anything to suggest that he has been added to the Sex Offenders Register.

From my experience in London public toilets you would have to be in an altered mental state to go into one. Those of you who have been on meds a while may be able to relate to this experience. On a trip to London I got food poisoning but was determined that, dammit, it was not going to ruin my trip. So with toilet paper in one pocket and a couple of barf bags in the other my partner and I were off seeing the wonderful sights of London, which for me included a tour of it's toilets. Being a typical fussy American I tried to stick with toilets in fast food restaurants but a couple of times I couldn't make it. I entered one public toilet and there were 4 or 5 guys jacking off at the urinals who didn't even have the manners to pause when people walked in. I really couldn't be bothered by their little display (I may have glanced) because finding a toilet was the center of my universe. The stalls were all occupied with people who judging my the position of their feet (a Larry Craig moment) were not using the toilet for it's intended purpose. As I clamped by butt cheeks together and waited I was able to take in the stench and notice the feces smeared on the walls, the dirty toilet paper on the floor. Fortunately anything that had been in my stomach had abandoned me hours ago. Suffering and impatient, and probably a little dehydrated, I finally pounded on a stall and shouted "HURRY UP! Some people here actually have to USE the TOILET!" Well, that worked because guys started scattering. Fortunately I had the leg strength to hover over a toilet seat and the foresite to bring toilet paper.

Note to George Michael: It's not 1985 anymore. Buy a freakin' computer and order your sex and drugs online like a normal person.

Well I say kudos for the toilet cruising -- it takes balls and dedication (and drugs?? and attractive lack of shame) to submit yourself to such public scrutiny/humiliation being such an international star!

Me I NEVER thought he was sexy, not my type. Think he gets much action when he cruises? Wasn't he on his knees a few years ago in another London park, sucking some rather long-in tooth geiser from Brighton??

Blind item for you all.... what gay movie star frequented a discrete Geneva Switzerland sauna in the late 90's?  (At least that shows some chic, eh)
