and when you're addicted you don't always behave rationally or responsibly. People who are high on drugs do stupid things all the time, but because they're not famous we don't hear about it.
George Michael will serve a few weeks in prison, and his life will resume. I predict that he will continue to use Cannabis, or whatever it is he uses, and he will continue to make large amounts of money.
"Apparently after he was charged with this offence he took the decision to stop driving"
He had no choice, he was given an immediate 6 month ban pending the hearing.
George Michael, like many similar celebrities, is a casualty of our increasingly fame obsessed media, where stars are held aloft for a short spell then rapidly dropped when someone new and prettier comes along. Once fawned over, they become lonely and abuse the drugs that once sustained them.
I confidently predict that Lady Gaga will be in a very similar position this time next year...
And the same as the stones and amy winehouse and many more singers/groups for generations, its the one's that get caught that should make a impression to other celeb's that they are NOT untouchable by the law!
