Popular Singer’s Response to Criticism of Olympics Closing Performance: ‘F–k Off’

Aug 15, 2012  •  Post A Comment

A popular singer who performed at the Olympics closing ceremony lashed out at critics who said his performance was too self-promotional, reports TheWrap.com.

Writing to his Twitter followers about the critics, George Michael wrote, "Please join me in telling them to fuck off ! It was my one chance on tv to thank you all for your loyalty and prayers, and I took it."

The British press has condemned Michael for using the ceremony as a way to promote his new single "White Light," rather than to perform a classic hit.


  1. Did I miss something? I thought he performed a “classic hit” (“Freedom ’90).

  2. NBC didn’t show everything from the closing ceremony – he did a second song that wasn’t seen in the US coverage.

  3. Lisa you’re right. And thank God for editing equipment. I think they should have shortened the first song by about 2 minutes.

  4. Where were the Moody Blues?????
