Michael's no fuss nuptials
09:30 05 May 2006
George Michael wants a small wedding.
The 'Freedom' singer says the civil ceremony - legally uniting him to long-term partner Kenny Goss - will be an intimate event, unlike that of pop rival Sir Elton John.
He said: "I think we'll just do the formal legal thing and then we'll have a party.
"But no one's going to be getting into a dress! Neither of us has the body for it!"
Elton married partner David Furnish last December in a brief commitment service which was followed by a lavish reception.
George also revealed he is looking forward to the couple's love being officially recognised.
He told British TV chat show host Michael Parkinson: "It's essential to have the same safeguards that straight couples have. We've been together for 10 years. I think we're entitled to that."
The singer has endured a turbulent few months.
He was thrilled that tickets for his 25 Live European tour sold out in just three hours in April.
However, he has also been dogged by run-ins with British police.
In February, he was found slumped over the wheel of his car, in London, and was arrested for drug possession, while last month he was involved in a car accident involving several parked cars near his London home.
