George Michael thinks he's a bad role model for gay kids.

"Bad gay role model! Bad!"
Singer George Michael, who hasn't had a hit in nearly two decades, says in a recent interview with Bang Showbiz that he has "let young gay people down" as a role model with all his brushes with the law, rampant drug use and cruising for anonymous sex in public parks.

The former Wham! front man says "It's really a matter of thinking what can I do to contribute as a gay man, because I have a serious problem with the fact that every time I would let myself down I felt definitely that I was letting young gay people down, because they would then witness the homophobia that is thrown at me and the wording of that homophobia and the language that is being used."

Michael wants to make amends, saying, "So I have some plans to try and do things to help gay kids and I think we're a notoriously bad community at helping our own when it comes to children because we don't have any children."

The 80's pop star plans to put together a collective of gay musicians for his next album. "I'm hoping for some pretty amazing guests but none have been confirmed, so don't want to risk saying."

When asked to comment, young gay people said, "George who?"

Michael announced Wednesday the launch of his Symphonica tour of several opera houses backed by a full orchestra.
