The eccentric pop star, who is a huge fan of fast food eatery KFC, believes removing the outer layer from fried chicken renders it free of unnatural substances.

Michael’s close pal David Gest revealed: “I’ve been best friends with Michael for 40 years and I will defend his reputation until the day I die.

“When we hang out we visit antique stores, play Frisbee and go to KFC – he thinks if you peel the skin off the chicken, it makes it organic. He cracks me up.”

David also spoke about how former Busted star Matt Willis has changed his life since they met on British reality TV show I’m A Celebrity. Get Me Out of Here!.

He added to Closer magazine: “We’re like brothers. We hang out together every weekend in Camden. I used to enjoy fancy Hollywood restaurants, but I’m so over that now. I’m having the best time of my life.”
