George Michael is a Free Man

George Michael is officially free to roam the streets and cause some more chaos because he's been released from prison.

George left Highpoint Prison in Suffolk, East England, Monday morning after serving four weeks of an eight-week sentence for driving under the influence of drugs and possession of cannabis.

Not only did he only serve half his sentence, he had to moved from London’s tough Pentonville Prison to the softer, category C jail, where he revealed he was treated “with kindness” by fellow inmates.

He said: “During my time here in prison, I think it's only fair to my fans, family and friends to respond in some way, even though I will be home soon. So please believe me when I tell you that in the last three weeks there have been no tears, no anxiety, no bullying, in fact not so much as a sleepless night for me. On the contrary, I have been treated with kindness by fellow in-mates and prison staff alike and as far as I can tell, have received no special treatment of any kind whatsoever.

"Most of my days have been spent reading thousands of letters and postcards of incredible support from people around the world. I promise to repay their kindness with new music as soon as I possibly can."

Let's just hope he learned some valuable lessons in jail and will think twice before getting wasted and getting behind the wheel of a car again.
