TAB: George Michael reportedly in three car hit and run at 8 am on a Sunday morning: “Witnesses who rushed from their houses yesterday morning after hearing a loud crash discovered the dishevelled ex-Wham singer sitting in his Range Rover staring at a dented grey Ford Fiesta.

But he’d prefer that the event remain low-key. He’s not wild about the idea of many out-of-towners and big-name politicians disrupting downtown life on a Sunday afternoon.”
Cyndi Lauper denies she once tasted bird poop: “It is not true that a flying bird once pooped in my mouth when I was singing in a concert. It did not go in my mouth. It went on my lower lip.
