  George Michael says forget anti-war song
Updated 26 February 2003, 19.22
George Michael doesn't want an anti-war record
George Michael has told pop stars to forget about plans for an anti-war charity record - because they don't know enough about politics to be taken seriously.

Blue star Lee Ryan says he's written a top tune called Stand Up As People and is trying to get loads of other big stars to sing it with him.

He says he wants people like Kylie and the Sugababes to help him out but George really doesn't like the idea.

Lee Ryan from Blue wants to make an anti-war track
He was involved with the famous charity single Do They Know It's Christmas by Band Aid that raised loads of money for starving people in Ethiopia.

George said: "I'm begging, I'm hoping that there will not be a Band Aid 2 because the reality is that very, very few people in the industry now, that you're hearing on the radio, make their money from their own hearts and minds."

He added that current pop stars make their money by singing words other people have written, and doesn't think a new charity record would be very genuine.
