The 35-year-old - picked to front the group after winning 2005 series Rockstar: INXS - told Canada’s Entertainment Tonight he was unceremoniously given the boot at a Hong Kong airport. He is now homeless and desperate to launch a solo career. "I don't know where I am going from sofa to sofa, from night to night. I am trying to get through my life," Fortune said. "I was in an airport at Hong Kong and literally got a handshake. They said, 'Thank you very much'. I found myself really alone because I had travelled with these guys for 23 months."
Well. Where shall I begin? Those of you who know me personally are well-aware of my rather sickening obsession with Michael Hutchence. (Hey, it's not as bad as it was...yet another addiction "cured" by my time in the San Diego "facility".) Anyhoo...sure, I watched "Rock Star INXS" back in 2005--but I knew no one could EVER replace Michael. I never listened to INXS's music with J.D. Fortune. I hated hearing him slaughter, I repeat, SLAUGHTER Michael's original works of art.
I am using the story merely as an opportunity post this: Click on it...watch it.
