Jail is not so horrible for George Michael. Though he denies receiving any special treatment, the ‘Careless Whisper’ singer, who is serving an eight-week sentence for driving under the influence of drugs and possession of cannabis, says he has been treated with “kindness” during his time in jail by both inmates and prison staff, reports Contactmusic.
The singer issued a statement to provide a clear picture to his fans and rubbish the various reports claiming he has received special treatment or has been struggling with life behind bars. Here’s the statement,
Much as I would prefer to rise above the usual rubbish that I’m reading day after day about my time here in prison, I think it’s only fair to my fans, family and friends to respond in some way, even though I will be home soon. So please believe me when I tell you that in the last three weeks there have been no tears, no anxiety, no bullying, in fact not so much as a sleepless night for me. On the contrary, I have been treated with kindness by fellow in-mates and prison staff alike and as far as I can tell, have received no special treatment of any kind whatsoever. Unless of course some of the guys here are letting me win at the pool table. Most of my days have been spent reading thousands of letters and postcards of incredible support from people around the world. I promise to repay their kindness with new music as soon as I possibly can.
Hope your charm stays this way throughout your jail stay and lets you win some big games at the pool table. Jokes apart, I really wish George learns something from this jail visit and comes out a changed man. All the best to you, George.
