    The singer, songwriter and producer George Michael has died aged 53.

    Georgios Panayiotou, known by his stage name George Michael, is best known as one half of Wham! They had a hugely successful career in the eighties, after which Michael went on to have a successful solo career, despite a lawsuit with record label Sony.

    i guess this was his last christmas

    (I'm sorry that was so untasteful and insensitive but i just kinda had to)

    RIP George Michael, definetely one of the greatest artists of all time and one of the more key people that made the 80's an amazing decade for music. It's sad he died so soon. Only 53, damn.

    This is a cruel world (and year, seriously this is the ultimate ''fuck you'' from 2016 imo)
    There are sites claiming his death is a hoax, which i really hope it is. His death seems to come out of nowhere and the reports are really vauge regarding the details on his death.

    I guess we just have to wait and see.

    Holly shit! Another talented singer gone in 2016. This truly is the worst year for deaths, ever.

    RIP, George Michael.

    Gay man dies suddenly with no cause given, having nearly died of pneumonia 5 years ago. Think about it. And if you still can't come to the logical conclusion, look up how the following died (and usually covered it up):

    Rock Hudson
    Liberace
    Freddie Mercury
    Anthony Perkins

    Celebrities are people. They don't owe you anything. They're entitled to privacy as much as you or I.

    I've never been more aware of mortality in my life until this year. Make every moment in your life the best it can be, try new things, hold less useless grudges.

    RIP

    I became aware today of some "final pictures" taken of him within the past year and boy does he appear to have gained some weight. It doesn't even look like the same man anymore. I'm surprised he was able to keep himself scarce for so long that no one knew this until now. If it wasn't an illness, I wouldn't be surprised if it was just due to a new lifestyle that his body couldn't handle at that point since there has been talk that it was due to heart failure.

    Too young to go. RIP
