Whenever someone dies, stories come out. Remember all the Prince stories from earlier this year? Well, get ready for a ton of George Michael stories in the coming weeks.
Based on early stories, it would appear that George Michael was very generous. He worked anonymously at a homeless shelter for years (I guess they never asked him to sing), he generously tipped a waitress five grand because she was a nursing student in debt, and he gave to multiple charities.
None of this is surprising. This man started Carpool Karaoke and didn’t make a big deal when it became the only late night bit clogging up our timelines. He also gave us Faith and Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go, arguably the two best songs in 80’s history. George Michael was always a giving man.
It’s the end of the shittiest year humanity has ever experienced. Let’s all make this last week great and do something kind for each other. For George.
