Born 25 June 1963
In a career spanning over 20 years, Michael has had six US number 1's, eleven British number 1's, and has sold more than 67 million records worldwide. He started off as one member of the duo Wham! in the early eighties, and went on to play some of the biggest concerts in history, including Live Aid and The Freddie Mercury Tribute. Michael didn't come out as much as he was 'outed' after being arrested for lewd conduct in an LA public toilet. You've gotta give him respect though, as he then mocked the whole incident in his later music video, Outside. In addition, he talked openly about it, and many other things in an infamous interview with Parkinson. He still has a "fantastic relationship" with his partner, Kenny Goss. Lately, he has been involved in a number of drug-related scandals, but his career goes strong, having just been the first ever performer at the new London Wembley Stadium.
