Washington, June 16 : English singer-songwriter George Michael believes that high-powered politicians drive the media to cover his and Britney Spears' private lives so that they may keep the "real news' off the front pages of the top newspapers.
The pop superstar says that British newspapers often publish stories about him, and each time he wonders which big happenings such news items might have covered up.
"In England I've probably had about 20 or 30 front pages in last two-and-a-half-years (and) what interests me is what else happened on those same days, and how much our government is getting away with day after day," Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
"It's the perfect cover-up to every major story they don't want us to hear: 'What did Britney Spears do today? Where did George Michael fall asleep?'" he added.
