Well, maybe there is hope after all.
A few weeks ago George Michael reacted to the whole phone hacking scandal on twitter. Not a very wise thing to do perhaps. But after all the abuse he's had to endure by them and other tabloids over the years he'd have to been inhuman not to gloat a bit now they are the ones in trouble.
Anyway, of course his little rant was reported by the media, lazy journalism being alive and well. I was dreading the response of the 'general public'. Whenever there's a story about GM there always comments that amount to nothing more than barely disguised homophobia.
This time was no exception. But - and this is truly cause for celebration - for once people came to his defence Regular people, not rabid fans!
So maybe the winds are changing just a little bit. We've still got a long way to go but things are definitely changing.
