The pop group Wham! formed in London’s club scene in the early 1980’s. After the group hit number one on the Billboard single’s chart, lead singer George Michael admitted that he and the other member of the duo stuffed their tight shorts with socks to make it appear to screaming women in the audience that the members were hung.
The negative publicity worked—the rumors were laughed off and Wham! went on to Make it Big.
The eight week jail sentence that was issued yesterday to pop star George Michael is likely another well planned stunt, designed to bring much needed press attention to Michael’s forthcoming autobiography.
