And ... Wham! George Michael turns 50 years old



It took his constant cameos on TV's Eli Stone before I truly could appreciate the work of George Michael, but I'm happy as hell to wish him a happy 50th birthday today.

The UK's Telegraph is celebrating the big Five-Oh! in a clever roundup of "number" items. Click here for the full list, but my favorites:

5: The number of times Michael has been arrested (four accounts of cannabis possession and driving under the influence, and one for public indecency).

16: Number of years Wham festive single Last Christmas has consecutively entered the German singles chart.

20 million: Copies of Faith sold.
