While a beautiful and successful musician, George never came across in interviews as happy or content in his adult life. Just the opposite. He must have had a lifelong fight with powerful demons. And like too many amazing entertainers, those demons finally won. Only 53....way too young.

George Michael was Boy George, right?

Let's all remember his upbeat, fun songs.

I wouldn't say AIDs because he was gay, but you have to admit that a gay male celebrity that was a known drug abuser mysteriously passing at his age puts AIDs right at the top of the list. I'm going to say no because they're saying heart failure. I think it's drug related. Had the said pneumonia, I would probably guess AIDs.

Anyways, he was an incredible talent. RIP George......
