George Michael Writing "One Of The Hottest Remaining Untold Celebrity Memoirs"

George Michael is penning his autobiography, which is due out in fall 2009. Let's hope he writes books better than he does music these day.

That's not saying George has hit a creative block, musically. Just that you might as well take the DATs for everything he's put out since '92 and chuck 'em into a combine. Except for "Fastlove." That was a jam.

Anyway, here's some trash about his memoirs:
Singer George Michael has signed a multimillion-pound deal to pen a "no-holds-barred" autobiography, it has been announced. HarperCollins said former Wham! star Michael, 44, would write the "access-all-areas" autobiography "entirely himself". Publishers said the deal is "one of the biggest ever concluded in UK publishing", but would not divulge figures. The book, dubbed "one of the hottest remaining untold celebrity memoirs", will cover the pop star's personal and professional life and will hit the shelves in autumn next year. Michael's manager Andy Stephens said: "George has promised HarperCollins a no-holds-barred biography, and it's certain to be just that. People aren't stupid, they're beginning to notice that the truth is more interesting than the stories the press come up with."
And speaking of old sluts from the '80s, here's Madonna with Timbaland at some UNICEF charity event this past week.

Check out her evil Vampyre man-knuckles wrapping around his successful throat, just before she drains him of his soul!

    sorry georgie-boy, but no one gives a careless whisper anymore!

    i think harper collins is making the same awful financial mistake geffen did when the bought out his sony contract for 30 million in the 90s.

    Should Timbaland and JT be advised to run away while they still can?
    Can anybody please put them in contact with Prince, Ricky Martin, Britney, Björk, Missy Elliott, Stephen Bray, Pat Leonard, Shep Pettibone, Dallas Austin, William Orbit, Mirwais, or Stuart Price?

    "Check out her evil Vampyre man-knuckles wrapping around his successful throat, just before she drains him of his soul!" -- *falls of chair* LMAO! Oh Robbie, you are brilliant!

    And I thought I was the only one left on this planet who thinks Vadge is turning more vile as she ages. Though I surely wouldn't say the same for her music, but that's a discussion for another day.

    Anonymous, like Dr. Van Helsing on a crusade, we shall make the world safe again for our chyldren, and de-fang The Vampyre!

    As Cristian deftly pointed out, many careers have been anhiliated in the wake of The Vampyre. Let us not forget Sister Patricia Arquette, Dame Panny Marshall, Lady Rupert Everett and, of course, Sir Guy Richie.

    As for George's book, perhaps HarperCollins are paying top dollar in anticipation of lots of -- heave -- sex?

    No love for "Amazing"...that was kind of a jam...from an otherwise dreadfully boring album...

    Not interested in the Michael book at all, unless it's a pop-up book. I'm sure it's bathroom reading.

    Still love "Everything She Wants".

    You know, Madonna wanted to work with Goldfrapp for her last album (Stuart Price album), but they kindly declined. Her "new" sound was so similar to Goldfrapp's sound that fans gave her the nickname "Oldfrapp".

    I think the George Michael book is actually No Holes Barred.
