We're so thankful he's back home.

A breathless George Michael spoke outside his London home on Friday after just being released from the hospital the day before.

The singer, who had been sick with pneumonia for over a month, looked a little weak as he spoke to reporters about his condition and thanked his doctors for "keeping me alive" after a "touch and go" battle.

Watch what he has to say above.

We know you're a strong guy, George. Just hang in there and keep fighting.

George Michael Released

Fab news!

Here's a quick update on George Michael and his health status: he's just been released from the hospital, and will be home for the holidays!

He was in the hospital being treated for pnuemonia, and was hospitalized late last month — so it's been a while, and it's so nice to hear that he's doing well enough to go home!

Too many people are without their families and stuck in hospitals this holiday season, it's nice to see a few get to avoid that!

Keep resting, George!

George Michael Has Lost 15 Pounds Since Quitting Pot

George Michael Has Lost 15 Pounds Since Quitting Pot

Getting sent to prison for a DUI has been the best thing that’s ever happened to George Michael… or at least his weight!

After being forced to quit smoking and drinking last September, George Michael has lost 15 pounds.

Said George:

“I’m having counseling about my ongoing drug abuse. Hopefully the period where I was a bit lost is over for good. I hope it’s self evident just in the fact I’ve lost about 15lbs, I hope it’s self-evident I’m not eating as much any more, which should tell you a lot. None of my trousers fit anymore, for the right reasons this time. “

Even though he’s lost weight, he’s not confident that he’ll keep it off:

“I’ve always been the porky boy in my head. I didn’t realize on the last tour I was carrying all that extra weight! Now if anything, I’m a little bit skinny.”

Bad, George Michael! Keep that weight off! Go buy new jeans and throw away the old ones!!

George Michael Going To Rehab

George Michael Hitting Up Rehab

It's about time!

George Michael, 47, had just been freed from jail after serving half of an eight-week sentence for driving while on drugs when he decided it was time to clean his act up.

Says Michael:

"I want to beat my drug addiction and lead a normal life. I don't want to end up back in prison. It's a very horrible place to be. You're not considered a person when you're inside, you're just a number and that freaked me out. I have done wrong and paid my time for doing this stupid crime and I want to get my life back on track."

So many stars seem to be thrown in jail and come out unscathed. It’s so great to see that Michael was effected by the solitude and is getting his life back together. Stay strong, bb!
