George Michael talks about his experience after waking up from coma


British singer George Michael recently spoke about his 2011 coma in which he woke from to find himself talking in a Westcountry accent. The singer had also feared that his pneumonia would leave him with serious brain damage.

Last year the star was seriously ill and was under the state of coma for three weeks. Michael spoke about how he woke up speaking a Bristolian accent with fears of serious brain damage.

The singer while talking to the London Radio station LBC said, “My doctors were genuinely worried that I had this condition, it’s a genuine thing where people wake from comas speaking French or some other language they learned at school”. The singer revealed that he had the accent for two days and the doctors feared that he could have spoken that way for the rest of his life.

The singer said, “Not that there’s anything wrong with the West Country accent — but it’s a bit weird when you come from North London.” In another interview, the singer also revealed that he had also faced memory loss problems after waking up from coma. Before going to coma the last thing the singer remembered was he told everyone that he wanted to lay down for half an hour on his own.
