TRAILER TRASH- GEORGE MICHAEL FREEDOM UNCUT

After years in the making, pop icon George Michael’s long-awaited documentary finally gets a trailer.

Titled George Michael Freedom Uncut, we get to see many sides of the singer who opens up about the many pressures of fame. He also addresses the infamous tea room incident that almost cost him his career.

George Michael first burst onto the music scene as half of the singing duo Wham! in the 1980s. Their songs “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” and “Freedom,” among others, became international hits and remain radio staples to this day.


In 1987, he opted to go solo, and spawned some off the biggest hits of his career, “Faith,” “Freedom,” and “I Want Your Sex.” By the 1990s, he’d become one of the most successful recording artists of his day. That all threatened to evaporate in 1998 when police arrested him in a Beverly Hills public bathroom for engaging in a “lewd act” with an undercover officer. The scandal pretty much outed the singer, who had been long-rumored to be gay.

Turning lemons into lemonade, he parodied his public bathroom incident by incorporating scantily-clad cops, rhinestoned urinals and disco balls in the video for his single Outside.


The singer unfortunately passed away in 2016 on Christmas day after his longtime boyfriend Fadi Fawaz discovered him dead at their home.

George Michael Freedom Uncut will be released in theaters worldwide on June 22.

Check out the trailer below…
