George Michael’s Backhanded Compliment To Will Young

The Glasgow Daily Record reports George Michael has taken a slap at ‘Pop Idol’ champ for his lisp. “I wish Will Young all the best,” the former Wham! singer said. “You get the impression he loves music and that song he had out at Christmas was lovely. But I can’t get over the fact he has a lisp. I know it’s not his fault, but it doesn’t help the listening experience.”

Loves Filming ‘Game’ Video

March 8, 2004 – Will tells Radio 1 he loved every minute of making his latest video for ‘Game’. “It was to be honest the best three days work I’ve ever had,” Young said. “It was so relaxed and so much fun that you didn’t mind doing long hours. It was my idea to do it in a theatre, and we referenced ‘Moulin Rouge’ and ‘Chicago’, because it’s such a big tune it needed something that opulent, and it needed a real performance – every time we did a take, people would applaud at the end because you were in a theater and you were on a stage and they were using the real theater lights rather than being in a dead studio, and I think it’s really paid off.”

Falls For Hunky Dancer’s Charms

February 24, 2004 – The Mirror reports Will has asked out dancer Steve Brown after meeting him last week’s Brit Awards. “Will is such a nice guy and very private. But he’s also quite forward,” Steve told a pal. “He said that he’d like us to go out on a date and then asked what I’d rather do – go to a club or a restaurant. I’m more of a homebody so I told him I’d rather stay in and order a take-away. He seemed pleased with that and had a huge grin on his face.”

    awww bless him. Such a waste though. Shame!!!!! I still think he should go out with Brian Dowling…they’d make the most adorable couple ever.

    I don’t see it as a backhanded comment. It’s just plain true; dude has a major lisp. It’s very obvious, probably more so because he’s a singer!

    Obvious?!?! You listened to his songs? Obviously not if you think his lisp is obvious
