Sure, George Michael has been arrested for drunk driving, possession of drugs, and public lewdness. But nothing tops his newest act: buying a rendering of his face made from 24-karat gold!

Oh, and it's also covered in diamonds.

He was inspired to commission this piece after seeing the sculptures on the British show The Dragons' Stories.

The 44-year-old singer is reportedly blowing close to $2 million for this sculpture. Then again, considering that he owns a diamond encrusted skull created by Damien Hirst, worth $50 million, that's just pocket change.
