George Michael to wed same-sex partner
Last Updated Wed, 30 Nov 2005 12:47:44 EST
Pop singer George Michael says he plans to wed his longtime partner Kenny Goss under a new British law making gay unions legal.
They plan a small private ceremony after Dec. 21, when the law creating civil partnerships becomes effective in the U.K.
George Michael plans civil union.
He and Goss have been together about 10 years.
The new British legislation permitting same-sex unions has brought forward a slew of couples ready to tie the knot.
Elton John has announced he plans to marry his partner, Toronto's David Furnish, possibly before the end of the year.
Michael, 42, says he thinks he and Goss will have a ceremony early next year. "I'm sure Kenny and I will be doing the old legal thing, but we won't be doing the whole veil and gown thing," he said in an interview with Associated Press.
He says they want to marry because he could get hit by a bus and Goss could end up with nothing. Michael came out in 1998 after being arrested in Los Angeles for performing a lewd act(i.e looking for sex in a Beverly Hills public park men's restroom).
Michael, former lead singer of Wham!, also had a successful solo career in the 1980s. He announced in 2004 that he would not release any more albums and that any new music he makes will be available online.
Britain's Civil Partnerships Bill gives same-sex couples the right to form legally binding partnerships and entitles them to some of the same tax and pension rights as married couples.
Well I guess "he" always followed elton john.

Geeeeez....homosexual's trolling for anonymous sexual intercourse in public bathrooms...pathetic. Perverse. And putrid on every level.
Wake me up!
Before ya' go go!
Ummmm.... on second thought, forget what I said and just let me take a nap.
The official line in 1998 was that Michaels was "confused" about his sexuality. Now we find he had a partner during the whole thing.
Dang, you all aren't bombarded by the hollyweird press.:^)
Oh well you all can keep the "music" of "wake me up before you go go" on your i-pods going and going for all I care.
And no I don't care who leads.
Don't let the S(on)un go down on Me....
Bad M, Bad M
And to think I actually liked his music before he went to the dark side....
