London: Popular singer George Michael says his first crush was singer Debbie Harry when he was a teenager and it happened even before he realised he`s gay.
Michael, 48, told Debbie, 66, about his feelings when he met her at the Lovebox music festival in London, Sunday, reports a website.
"She (Debbie) looked great. I told her that before I worked out I was a poof, she was my first crush... (which is true!) ... Not sure if she took it as a compliment," Michael posted on micro-blogging site Twitter.
The ‘Careless Whisper’ singer declared that he is homosexual after an undercover police officer arrested him when he found him in an objectionable state in a public toilet in Beverly Hills in April 1998.
