Following last week’s revelation that Kate Moss was set to star in George Michael’s new music video, the trailer to the video has landed. From what we can see so far (oo the suspense), Kate looks every inch the rock chick; stylin out a black ensemble with a grey fur coat, cheekbones looking as prominent as ever, while George looks every inch the pop star determined to relaunch his career.
The single – ‘White Light’, is set to be released on August 12, and will mark the popstars return to popworld. All those at George Michael camp are doing their best to harvest enough good publicity to enable to general public to forget about all those incidents, and who better to aid the crusade than Ms. clean slate herself? George tweeted various cryptic messages last week, firstly stating “The video you are waiting for is choc full of serious eye candy, and believe it or not, I’m not talking about me!”, and later explaining “Oh and by the way, in the video, a certain supermodel (our Kate) saves my life. We shot two endings, one with the Heimlich manoeuvre… and one where she gives me full on CPR. Mouth to mouth. Not really” … Funny hey.
Mostly funny because it would seem that in reality, Kate Moss really is saving his life. Or at least his career. Of course there are some hardcore George Michael enthusiasts out there who pay attention to the artist’s movements at all times, but by bringing Kate into his self renovation scheme George has secured himself attention from fashionistas as well as dedicated fans. Kate Moss indisputably has the midas touch, everything she touches turns to hip – and it seems she may well have successfully transformed George Michael from creepy to cool. After all, if Queen Kate is willing to hang around with him – he must be just great… and shouldn’t we all be on the hunt for equally troubled, male friends to get back on the straight and narrow? (Perhaps Sir Phillip Green will start a club for trendy gals to pick up such species).
On another note, it’s pretty great that Kate Moss has reverted back to starring in music videos in order to pick up her rock chick credentials; reading about her getting on her stage singing ‘backing vocals’ at her hubby’s gigs was getting slightly too embarrassing.
For the keenos and the curious out there, the full video is released this coming Tuesday. The song celebrates George Michael’s thirty years in the music biz and will undoubtedly be spectacular; the singer’s Freedom video which starred Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista and Cindy Crawford was iconic, and anything that features the enigmatic, ‘life saver’ Kate is fascinating to one and all.
