George Michael’s fans transformed a shop their idol once crashed into

The shop connected with not so pleasant episode of George Michael’s life was turned in to his memorial when he passed away. Snappy Snaps, a photography chain in the UK, was smashed into by the star in 2010 while he was driving a huge Range Rover. It’s reported the star had been high at the time of the incident, and wasn’t in control of the vehicle. He subsequently served an eight-week prison sentence at HMP Pentonville in North London and Highpoint Prison in Suffolk. But now the fans decorated the venue with flowers, written tributes and pictures of their idol. “The owners think it’s bad for business but everyone else around here thinks it’s quite humorous and makes the shop a bit of a tourist attraction,” one local told The Sun. I guess they don’t want to be forever associated with George Michael’s arrest, however.” The shop staff have had to remove the items each morning in a bid to keep the store functioning. The outpouring of tributes is continuing almost a month after he died.
