Ok, this is completely silly and it’s not really art. I was walking by where George Michael crashed his car in Hampstead today and snapped this on my iPhone.It is one of the better pieces of Graffiti I’ve seen in a long time. Note someone has scrawled ‘Wham’ on the point of impact. The crash happened At 3.35 am on July 4 George, 47, lost control of his Range Rover and smashed it into a Snappy Snaps photo shop near his home. The crash buckled a door frame and shattered windows of the photoshop in the up-market high street.
After yet another brush with the law, George Michael’s luck avoiding jail has finally run out. the singer was sentenced to 8 weeks in jail 4 of which must be served and a driving ban of 5 years. Guess he will finally need to hire a full-time chauffeur when he gets out of jail. Food for thought, considering his driving record and penchant for weed, why didn’t he hire a driver years ago? Updated, George was released on 12 October he is keeping a low profile and his whereabouts is presently unknown.
