George Michael: Some Speculation

LONDON (AP) — George Michael's management says the singer has canceled all his remaining 2011 tour dates as he recovers from pneumonia.

A statement says the 48-year-old former Wham! frontman "is responding to treatment and slowly improving."

The statement issued Friday says Michael "is ill with pneumonia and any other speculation regarding his illness is unfounded and untrue."

Michael was hospitalized in Vienna earlier this week, and canceled shows in Vienna, Strasbourg, France, and Cardiff, Wales.

The Austrian doctors treating Michael say he has "severe community acquired pneumonia" but "his condition has stabilized and he is responding to treatment."

The singer has canceled dates in Liverpool, Sheffield, Newcastle, Glasgow, Birmingham, Manchester and London.

Associated Press.

Several media have played the same sick trick as this BBC News story - ending apropos of nothing with the line; "Earlier this month Michael played a gig at the Royal Opera House in London, to raise money for Sir Elton John's Aids Foundation."
Freddie Mercury died 20 years ago yesterday of bronchio-pneumonia brought on by Aids.
One tabloid front page screamed just before he died; "What have you got to hide, Freddie?"
Maybe George has nothing to hide?
The sickfuck slime of Wapping are clearly salivating, hoping this is as bad as it could possibly be, history repeating...
I fear we're about to see British tabloid journalism at its very worst once more.
Remember - no-one knows anything.
And most people with pneumonia just have pneumonia.
Get well soon, George.
