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
“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.”
