George Michael Shutting Down His Website Forum

posted a message to fans on his official website announcing that he’s closing the forums. Pop diva Jennifer Lopez shut her Sony Music forum down a while back citing the same reasons as George, negative remarks by posters. “Hi everybody, this is George,” he wrote. “I’m afraid that, having visited the forums on a regular basis over the past few months, simply to see how you guys thought the album/ interviews/promotion were going, I have decided to close them down. As many of you will know, much of my reasoning for the future is to stay away from the negativity of the media, I think that it is bad for me and for music in general, so I find it really sad to see the forums so packed full of negative comment, and that so many genuinely positive fans find themselves defending me(or themselves) constantly against attack. How pointless. There are plenty of places to read people slagging each other off, but I wasn’t trying to create one in opening the Forum. Those of you that want to carry on the media’s work will have to do it somewhere else I suppose.”

“Things will stay the same for the next two weeks, so that those of you who have made friendships can decide which other sites to meet at, and then the rooms will close. I feel bad for those of you who have always been supportive, but I’m afraid I want nothing to do with the bitching that has evolved between some members, (many members), and perhaps unofficial sites will be a calmer affair.”

“Sorry guys, but that’s the way it goes… Peace and Love…or nothing at all.”

“Love as always. George xx”

    SJ you’re sick.. I think this is serious. The society get’s worse.. George Micheal, Jennifer Lopez, they are strong persons but why bash them? They make music.. music = people who come together not hate on artists. I think the people who do this shame YOU! I bet on this topic… just like stupid people like SJ gonna say bad thing like J-Ho and nasty things to George Micheal. People are judging artists by their personal lives.. I think it’s sad. When you don’t like someones personal live/music/movies you don’t have to insult them.. that’s really childish

    George and Jennifer just can’t take the criticism. people are going to argue, no matter what happens, it’s human nature. if you’re going to put crappy music out into the world, expect negativity. it’s as simple as that.

    George Michael…no longer here, but his music as a solo artist and as part of the collective Wham was such a joyful part of my youth. It is so sad how crushing media and social media can be. Wish there was more compassion given and less intrusiveness. I don’t know what GM was like privately…But I do know Careless Whispers was the bomb and that’s all I need to know.
