"I'm very weak but I feel amazing" the former Wham singer tells reporters. "It was by far the worst month of my life, but I'm incredibly, incredibly fortunate to be here."
Michael also said he didn't want fans to stress over his condition, so he waited to release a statement until his health improved. "I didn't want to worry my fans too much and I'm really sorry I couldn't contact them in any way before now but I was really not in any state to."
According to ABC News, Michael's doctors spent three weeks "basically keeping him alive." Even though the singer is speaking out about his gaunt and emaciated appearance, there are still some things about the ordeal that he wishes to keep to himself: "I don't want to take you through all of it because some of it I want to protect my family from."
The 48-year-old singer has plans to repay fans for buying tickets to cancelled shows from his most recent European tour. But for now, Michael is going to rest up just in time for the holidays. Here's to a speedy recovery, George!
