2016 took a lot of beloved celebrities from us.
No matter who you are, there was a celebrity death in 2016 that hit you hard.
For many people, that was George Michael’s death.
The undeniably talented man had sadly spent much of his life in the press for reasons other than music.
A seemingly constant battle with drink and drugs and a decidedly non-traditional lifestyle meant he was regularly smeared across the front of tabloid newspapers.
Despite this, he stayed strong and was an icon for many people who lived a life that was deemed outside of the norm.
Sadly, even after his death, Michael’s name doesn’t seem to stray too far from controversy.
