MIRROR WORLD EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: GEORGE MICHAEL
I read Pilger in the Mirror ..and I got angry at the world
SEPTEMBER 11 was a shocking day for the world, and a life-changing experience for many people.
For pop superstar George Michael, the horrific events unfurling in New York also represented a weird and distressing coincidence.
Watching the World Trade Center towers collapsing on TV in a North London recording studio, George burst into tears.
He felt anguish for the thousands dying in the mayhem and also bewilderment - because he'd spent the past few months writing a song based on the very world turmoil that led to the attack.
That song, Shoot The Dog, was delayed for obvious reasons.
It's being released this week, amended slightly to bring it up to date.
The single's cover includes a front page of the Daily Mirror, headlined Howdy Poodle, criticising the Prime Minister's apparent sucking up to President Bush.
