George Michael, singer/song writer and amature car crash enthusiast, was fined £500 after being convicted of a "lewd act" in a Los Angeles lavatory. The same “lewd act” that inspired 1998 hit ‘Outside’, which saw Michael singing about getting frisky in the alfresco and dancing alongside disco-ed up urinals. It’s clear to see that he took the entire episode very seriously then. The Los Angeles court also ordered him to undergo psychological counselling and carry out 80 hours community service.
