Was George Michael Right To Play New Song At Olympics Closer?
Nevertheless, the ever outspoken Michael defended his choice to perform his new single at the ceremony. With the crowd on the night notably quietened by the relatively unknown song, many criticised the singer for his shameless self-promotion, but on Twitter he responded "Had a great time at the closing! I hope you are not bothered by the press reports of my scandalous 'promotion'."
Continuing in a forthright response he added: "Please join me in telling them to f*** off. It was my one chance on tv to thank you all for your loyalty and prayers, and I took it. And I don't regret it." Despite the grumbling, it looks like the singer's gamble's paying off, and 'White Lines' is now expected to become his first UK top 10 single in eight years.
