8. George Michael Meets the Phallus In the Park
By 1998, rumors about George Michael's sexuality had been swirling for years, but even the fans who strongly suspected that the singer was gay were a bit surprised to discover that he liked to cruise for anonymous sex with regular jerks in public parks.
But hey, that's exactly how he was outed. The fallen star was busted for "engaging in a lewd act" in a police sting operation at a park in Beverly Hills. After pleading no contest to exposing himself the cop, Michael publicly admitted he was gay with as much grace as he could muster.
It apparently didn't stop him from continuing to cruise, though. Eight years later, he was again accused of anonymous public sex, this time at London's Hampstead Heath. Once again, the singer copped to it.
