Screen Shot 2017-09-17 at 11.20.28 PMArtist Aris volunteers that his song and the music video for “The Music” is meant to channel Madonna and George Michael.

I can't speak to the George influences (well, there's that facial hair and that leather jacket), but I do see/hear some Madonna-ness, and the song/video are great regardless ...

WIDGETHuff Post: “Not since Richard Nixon’s Watergate scandal has an investigative hearing made it so clear that a presidency was in serious legal peril.” Also, no wiretapping.

WIDGETTwitter @kylegriffin1: Holy fuck — House Intel. Chmn. Devin Nunes claims never to have heard of Carter Page or Roger Stone aka “What's Aleppo?”:

WIDGETJoe.My.God.: So many conspiracy theories, but here's a conspiracy fact — 100s of 9/111 families suing Saudi Arabia for complicity in the attacks. Yes!

WIDGETPink News: George Michael knew he was dying: “I thought he was waking up and I saw him coming alive again, maybe the last flash of the candle.”

Why George Michael Died: The Cause Revealed Comments (0)

Months after the shocking death of George Michael, a final autopsy report is out, following up on initial, inconclusive results: natural causes.

I think calling it natural causes is disingenuous, in that while there are three naturally occurring conditions that lead to his death — two heart issues and a build-up of fatty tissue in his liver — it begs the question why a man in his fifties would suffer these conditions in the first place, and whether drug abuse would have enhanced them. I would gather yes.

More Stars We Lost in 2016

Regardless, it's case closed on one of the biggest celebrity deaths of 2016 — in any other year, it would have been the biggest. For many fans of Michael's work, it was certainly among the most painful.

Did George Michael Have Another FAITH On The Way? Comments (0)

George Michael's passing was somewhat stepped on by Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds in the same way people didn't really absorb the loss of Farrah Fawcett while focusing on the out-of-nowhere loss of Michael Jackson. With Carrie and Debbie being buried as we speak, Billboard shifts to George, giving him his final cover.

In the story, George's former manager Rob Kahane speaks out about George's music and how he perceived himself, saying George had just finished an 18-month rehab in Switzerland.

According to Kahane, George thought he'd come through it well and played him some new songs that he describes as:

...totally pop, like something that would’ve been on Faith. The songs weren’t depressing. That’s why I thought everything was okay with him.

Kahane also said George never shook a poor image he had of himself:

He never thought he was good-looking. When he looked in the mirror, he’d still see a pudgy, homely kid.
