article imageGeorge Michael To Write An Autobiography

By Michelle Duffy     Jan 17, 2008 in Entertainment
The UK singing legend and former Wham front man, George Michael has signed a new deal with a top publisher to write a book on his memoirs - a deal which is said to be worth millions
The 44 year old British singer, who is currently banned from driving for two years, has officially agreed to write his autobiography for London based publisher, HarperCollins.
The book, apparently is going to be completely in his own words and not at any point does he intend to employ the help of a ghost writer.
It book is due to hit the shelves in Autumn in the UK.
The deal, which has a undisclosed figure, is said to be one of the biggest deals ever made between an artist and a publisher.
The news comes at the end of one of the singer's most difficult periods in his life. It was only within the last year that Michael had been found at the wheel of his car, unfit to drive. After his appearance in court, he was given a two year ban and 100 hours community service. He had pleaded guilty.
Manager for the million record selling artist, Andy Stephens, spoke to the BBC News Website and said,
"George has promised HarperCollins a no-holds-barred biography, and it's certain to be just that. People aren't stupid. They're beginning to notice that the truth is more interesting than the stories the press come up with."
For the man himself, it is probably a good move in the world of publicity. It has been a well known fact in the past that those whose reputation may have slipped, have found renewed success after putting pen to paper.
