George Michael Says Adios to Pop

George Michael in ‘A Different Story’

George Michael is set to end his singing career to concentrate on working behind the scenes of the industry.

Speaking at the Berlin Film Festival the star said that pop music was “dead” and that he was looking to work writing songs for other performers.

Michael told the press: “That genre (pop) is just dead as far as I am concerned.

“I just thought it was very important to explain myself before I disappear.

“I truly believe there’s a life for me that is not this one.

“Perhaps it will mean writing for other people. I have an ambition to write a truly contemporary musical, not necessarily even for the stage, but for the screen.”

He was in Berlin to launch a new documentary, “A Different Story,” which examines his life in the 1980’s when he was catapulted to fame.
