George was cute, lol... I suspect he had a little sour grapes going on.

George had gotten his third US Billboard #1 hit single since the early 70's....

Along comes Michael and knocks George out of his #1 spot, with The Way You Make Me Feel. It ALSO topped Hot R&B/Hip Hop Billboard charts, AND Hot Dance Club Play.

That was after MJ had enjoyed #1 success with the single Just Can't Stop Loving You and Bad, both chart toppers.... and then went into topping charts worldwide with Man in the Mirror, Dirty Diana, Another Part of Me, Smooth Criminal, and Leave Me Alone... Gotta be frustrating for other artists when an artist can release 8 singles in a row and they all skyrocket past.

Probably yeah, various artists do not even get 8 singles in the charts or in the top 20.

However if you think George would be among the frustrated .. well...

George had a brilliant, dry, wry wit that was quite distinctive.

His sister once said that George had a very droll personality.
