Random sex iPhone app Grindr gets not entirely unlikely boost from George Michael

George Michael has been cruising down under according to Gawker, using an iPhone app designed to connect gay men on a local level, ostensibly so they can meet up for tea and scones.

Rumors have circulated previously that the singer, who was famously busted for men’s room cruising back in 1998, has turned his manhunt digital with a handy iPhone app called Grindr. Of the arrest in Los Angeles twelve years ago, Michael said:

“I got followed into the restroom and then this cop — I didn’t know it was a cop, obviously — he started playing this game, which I think is called, ‘I’ll show you mine, you show me yours, and then when you show me yours, I’m going to nick you!”

Michael was fined and given community service work, and later sent up the incident in a video for the song Outside. The Grindr app is potentially less of a misdemeanor, and their site describes the service:

Simply download the Grindr app to view who’s around and start chatting with a local guy. Trade your stats, show off a photo, instant message any guy you like. Share your location on a map and make plans to meet up right away. Or just browse the local scene. Grindr keeps things uncomplicated.

Tipsters have alerted gossip blogs that Michael has been spotted using Grindr with the handle “Back for Wood.” There are no saucier anecdotes as of yet circulating the internet, but it appears Michael is here, queer and on your iPhone, so you Aussie gays should try and get used to it.

It’s pretty cool that he’s not only adopting new technologies, but that he’s comfortable with openly cruising despite his celebrity status. Everyone’s all player hating on George up in the comments, but why does he need a reason to cruise? Why not just because he can, bitches?
