Brooke Shields thought she’d lose her virginity to George Michael
London: Brooke Shields has revealed that she thought she was going to lose her virginity to George Michael while listening to Wham. Revealing on Jonathan Ross show, Shields said she also thought it would be happen in the back of a limo –and she thought he wrote ‘Careless Whisper’ about her.
Shields told Jonathan later that George was dropping her off at her house after a date when she thought they were about to go to Club Tropicana.
“He said to the driver to drive around for a bit. I was like, ‘This is it, it’s going to happen. It’s going to be in the back of a limo and it’s going to be with Wham,’” a daily quoted her as saying.
“And the partition went up and then he said to me, ‘I think we need to take a break, I need to concentrate on my career’. And I was like, ‘Oh’. I was so heartbroken. I went back to college and when I heard the song, ‘never going to dance again’ I thought it was about me,” she added.
Brooke - who turns out to be an absolutely amazing guest - then talked about her relationship with Michael Jackson.
“When I married and had children I became less in his life. I lived on the east coast, primarily, and he lived on the west coast. Our contact was mostly by phone or writing,” she said.
“We met when I was 13, and I never wanted anything from him. I had my own life and my own work, I didn’t need anything from him, to get anything from him. He was secure around me. He didn’t feel threatened. I had nothing to judge him about. We were like little kids in this really adult world and we got to hang onto each other and be little kids. That was a gift,” she added.
