George Michael

Busted in Another Bathroom

9/21/2008 7:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

George Michael hasn't learned that public toilets are bad for his career. London police arrested Michael in his home away from home (a bathroom) for being in possession of both class A and C drugs.

British law states that class A drugs can include crack cocaine.

The often troubled pop singer was arrested on Friday in an underground loo in the Hampstead Heath area after cops were tipped off by a suspicious toilet attendant. George was released after being cautioned -- and no further action against the singer will be taken at this time.

In 1998, Michael was arrested in a Beverly Hills bathroom for soliciting sex to an undercover police officer.

His music is too 80s and not deep enough lyrically to get the props he gets. I wouldn't own any of his crap music.

Yeah, leave the queen of the sicko queer nobs alone, huh? Hey, here's an idea. Why don't they legalize performing "civil unions" in the loo, for free? That way you could already be at your honeypot moon location after the ceremony. Bunch of flaming homos. Like I would ever listen to any "music" this guy farts out. He probably writes his lyrics on toilet paper. Hey I haven't seen a comment from any of georgemichaels #2 fans yet. Ruthell Brand, you out there?

It is obvious that no one on this post went to George Michael's recent 25Live concerts. He isn't a "has been" since the concert I attended at Madison Square Garden was sold out as were all his other venues. He is an extremly talented singer and songwriter who still packs in the fans. That said, it is also obvious that George Michael has problems, which he did discuss on his 3 part series on Good Morning America, about his drug use and depression. YES PEOPLE, it doesn't matter how much money you have..........rich or poor...........drug use and depression can affect anyone for a multitude of reasons! So stop bashing a human being with all your homophobic hatred. This is a real person with real problems, have some compassion.

I think it would be wise for people not to be so judgemental of George Michael until they've been in his shoes. It's very easy to criticize from the safety of your home sitting at your computer, it takes more depth to be compassionate with the understanding that everyone is human and make mistakes. When you think you're better than someone else you put yourself in a position to learn a painful lesson in humility. Anyway, addiction is treatable and even the most seemingly hopeless cases can recover....no one is a waste of a life.

Having read all these blogs..I am truely shocked..To wish another person dead, and or to wish someone to catch Aids and die, really that is about as low as you can go. Its sad that George Michael is arrested for carrying class A drugs, this indicates that he is out of control, the fact that he is cruising in Hampsted Heath, which is a common place where huge numbers of Gay men go crusing (specail during the hot summer nights), If you know London then the fact that a gay man is hanging out there is no surprise, it is neither disgusting nor a issue..For Those of you who would wish someone dead or to die from Aids, then you are most likely racists, hate jewish people, and are deeply homophic. It is sad that TMZ would allow such deep hate to be printed. My god cant some of these messages be (filtered out). "who can truely throw stones".

wow it is so funny how the issue this time is drugs and all you automatically go to the gay aspect of it. who needs to grow up now?? you all do! all you macho guys are alot of talk and 98% of you have let a man suck your ****. Get over it. You think that the gays are the freaks, but the way some of you straights act, i am wondering if you all need to step back and evaluate your life.

true, his bathroom activities are not the smartest, but why would you say you hope he gets aids and dies? going to extreme aren't you? or are you a gay hater because deep down, you, yourself, are a closet case and you are so angry because you dont have balls to come out of your closet, KEVIN????????????
