Ooh I say! Kate Moss gets all pouty and that in the brand new video for George Michael’s comeback single, “White Light.”
The supermodel spends the video’s entirety strutting provocatively in a fur coat and, uh, doing very little else, while Michael croons his way through a throng of sweaty, half-naked dancers. Oh, and then he encounters an escaped zebra. You know, the usual!
“White Light” is George Michael’s first single since overcoming pneumonia late last year.
The song touches on this near-death experience, with lyrics like: “Was it music that saved me? Or the way that you prayed for me? Guess either way I thank you.”
Today (July 17), Michael spoke to Radio 2 about his battle with the respiratory condition, which apparently caused a “five-week memory gap”:
“One afternoon I was having lunch and suddenly felt really odd and said to everyone that I need to go and lay down for half an hour on my own. And that’s the last thing I remember for five weeks. It was three weeks of them trying to save my life and two weeks awake.”
Michael revealed the illness left him unable to walk:
“I literally had to learn to walk again and weird stuff, because when they keep you sedated for that long your muscles literally atrophy at an incredible rate. And I just woke up like this feeble old man.”
On a lighter note, the music legend also confirmed on Chris Evans’ radio show that he will be performing at the Olympics closing ceremony on August 12 (presuming no more athletes get lost):
“That’s the plan yes, that I’ll be playing a couple of songs to kick off the concert at the end.”
Good to have ya back, Georgey boy!
