Default Kenny Goss Interview - The Sun On Sunday

What do people think about this ? I know he has received some criticism for doing this but I personally think it was a good interview and revealed things about George and the funeral which we all wanted to know [lets be honest].

I don't think he discredited George in anyway whatsoever. The only odd thing was it was The Sun On Sunday - a paper George hated !

People tend to overreact over here... it's fine, at least for me.

I was ok by not knowing more, but of course I have read it too . But it did not make me happier to know details about the funeral. I guess Georges family had their reason to keep all about the funeral private so it was not necessary to tell this story. Sellling this for a good cause sounds wrong to me

Hm, since George announced the split with Kenny I wondered if we ever got Kennys side of the story ... but now the articles are out there and I still have not gone through them ... I am really mixed up after reading the comments about them here ... why did Kenny decided to spill the beans right now ... after being silent for so long ... ?

Do you think George and Kenny had non-disclosure agreement ?

Fans waited so long for some word from George and then he was gone. I don't think it is wrong to want to read the details of a beautiful dignified funeral.

As I said elsewhere,I really hope that Kenny consulted with the family before he went ahead with this interview.

I don't know if I'm surprised or just disappointed - I have always considered Kenny to be always loyal and discreet, a loving and supportive boyfriend. I saw him close-up at one of the 25Live shows, he was very sweet looking and sang along happily to Amazing with the rest of us.
But now this - why does he speak out now? and why The Sun of all papers

Kenny is not telling things about George that I didn't already more or less know, except for the part about the funeral of course, so I too do hope he has the support from Georges family about all this. And I do hope George's will left a good amount of money for the foundation so that Kenny will never again find it necessary to sell out.

Disappointed with what exactly ? Kenny did not discredit George. So George wakes [woke] up at 9am and drank PG tips tea whilst munching on Coco pops.

Agreed, he didn't give away much you didn't know but for many it wasn't right he spoke out , especially to the Sun.

That's the bit I don't understand. George hated the Sun. Maybe The Sun made the biggest donation ? If so that's fine as all the money went to the Foundation.

If you think about it Kenny raised tonnes of cash for the foundation without 'really' revealing that much. SMART

See, this is probably the big difference btw George and many people: George was very principled and sometimes too stubborn for his own good. He performed so many charity events and donated lots of money for charity or other people who needed helps. George gave the money back for his book deal once he realized the publisher was part of Rupert Murdoch media emperor.

To me, when Kenny Goss talked to the Sun which George absolutely hated, it is just so wrong, regardless what he spoke about. As to the funeral details, I honestly do not want to know as it was supposed to be private. Sadly, all these were most likely for the money. Does George deserve this?

If you don't want to know the funeral details then don't read about it. Very simple. Some of us do want to know.

It was obviously for the money to the Foundation [is that so wrong ?]

Does George deserve what ? He's dead so won't know about any of this.

I did not read it, but know about a bit as people mentioned it here.

It is your view that it is OK to do this for the Foundation. According to your logic, one can do whatever for the sake of a good cause, even at an expense of someone you claim to be a love of your life.

Yes, George is dead, but does not mean he would not know:
But all this cruelty and money instead of love
People, have we no shame?
They may chase me to the ends of the earth....

George was prescient about lots of things. Sadly he was right again.
