George Michael Death: How Social Media Reacted

As the world woke up to the news that former Wham! member and all-round phenomenal superstar George Michael had died, the tributes wasted no time in pouring in.

He passed away on Christmas Day, at home in England, his publicist said earlier in a statement. The cause is no known.

He was only 53.

Sarah Michelle Gellar almost got it right.


I am beyond heartbroken and devastated by another tragic loss. R.I.P. dearest Georgy. #GeorgeMichael #ripgeorgemichael
