Singer George Michael on Friday tweeted that he was back and proud.

The message to his more than 310,000 followers was the first they had heard of Michael since November 17, when the Faith singer's account suddenly went silent.

“Hey everyone, your favorite homo is home :))),” he messaged.

Michael returned to his London home after being released from a Vienna hospital on Thursday.

Speaking outside his home in north London, Michael thanked his doctors and fans for helping him through a “touch and go” bout with pneumonia, which he described as “by far the worst month of my life, but I'm incredibly, incredibly fortunate to be here.”

Michael was rushed to hospital on November 20, forcing the singer to postpone the remainder of his Symphonica European tour.

Early reports suggested Michael's condition was very severe and would require months' worth of hospitalization.

“I'm back and I'm proud, though not very loud … (which, I assure you, will be temporary!) MERRY XMAS TO ALL OF YOU! ISN'T LIFE GRAND!! X,” Michael tweeted.

And a few hours later, he added: “Good night everyone, I'm getting an early night. Thank you all so much for your patience and your prayers. Don't worry, I'll be back to my foul mouthed ranting self soon enough xxxxxx.”
