Yesterday it was thought that George Michael's wedding and entire relationship with Kenny Goss was on the rocks after he was caught doing the gay sex with a van driver in a bush in London. George Michael has other ideas, though.

George Michael chose to defend himself, his relationship with Goss and his job as a gay spokesman last night by calling Richard & Judy and saying:
