Just finished screening this episode and I realized that I didn't know much about the real George Michael! Watch this documentary it is honest...but what a talented man he was...
Two hour documentary special about the incredible real life story of the pop superstar who sold more than 100 million albums over a career that spanned four decades.

George Michael’s Lonely Life shows viewers the countless setbacks in Michael’s life from his mother dying to losing his lover Anselmo Feleppa and also his numerous brushes with the law resulting from an addiction to drugs.
Still, the recurring theme in his life was a remarkable resilience and ability to turn potential career-ending moments into massive career boosts and chart-topping new music. But with his life cut tragically short at just 53 years old millions of fans were left wondering what could’ve been.
