The neighbours of the late singer George Michael criticised their fans’ initiative to build a shrine outside their idol’s house. The Wham singer lived in a mansion in Highgate, North London, before suddenly passing away at Christmas 2016. The path outside of his house has been filled with thousands of gifts and tributes to the musician from his fans all around the globe. The shrine has attracted the attention of the Highgate Conservation Area advisory committee, a local group that demands to kee4p ‘the original character of the area. “One wonders what George Michael would think of it all outside the beautiful home that he looked after so well, and right where he erected a wonderful Christmas tree every year,” the group’s spokesman told Daily Star, saying that instead of thousands of the dead flowers it would be better to tribute the singer by a permanent memorial. A similar shrine was erected outside of Michael’s home in Oxfordshire at the time of his death.
