  1. I'd say finding present-day George Michael "one of the best looking guys I've ever seen..." is a pretty good reason to give up the steroids...

  2. Eh, Creatine isn't really what we think of when we hear talk of "steroids." It's completely legal, and a HUGE percentage of people who lift to gain muscle mass use it regularly.

  4. Dude needs to change his name to something more pop-friendly if he wants to succeed. Gareth Gates is akin to having a name like Robert Allen Zimmerman.

  5. Creatine isn't even a steroid. Steroids are lipid based and slowly act within the nucleus of a cell. Creatine is a nitrogenous acid used as an immediate source to produce ATP in the cytoplasm.

  6. You should have pointed out that the guy he lost to in Pop Idol was Will Young, who is openly gay and hot and hung and yet still the darling of the UK pop scene, popular with teen boys and grannies alike.
