Just weeks before his death, the Wham! frontman spoke to BBC broadcaster Kirsty Young in a programme titled George Michael: The Red Line.
The 53-year-old didn’t hold back as he opened up about his sexuality and broke down about his first love Anselmo Feleppa.
But those listening to the one-hour episode found it hard to concentrate on George as he spoke candidly in his final interview.
Taking to Twitter, many people complained about the “annoying” music which played over the top of his voice as they just wanted to hear the popstar speak.
One person wrote on Twitter: “Ruined the George Michael interview with all the music. We’ve heard the songs, just want to hear him.”
Another commented: “@BBCRadio2 trying to listen to the last words of George Michael but he is being drowned out by the music!”
“@bbcradio2 Please can you not put music in the background while George and Kirsty are speaking, it is very distracting!! @GeorgeMichael,” added a third.
One listener had some advice and wrote: “@BBCRadio2 Couldn’t you have left the George Michael interview with little over production! So annoying. Just want to hear George’s voice.”
In the emotional interview, George – who died on Christmas Day last year – admitted he wasn’t ready to come out as gay in the 1980s.
“I just wasn’t ready to come out,” George said of his time shortly after Wham! “It was in the era of AIDS and I had no concerns about coming out for that reason, other than my family.”
The singer continued: “I come from a very close-knit family when my mother was alive – God bless her – she would have immediately assumed the same paranoias that I did as a gay man about AIDS in the mid-80s.
George Michael: The Red Line concludes next Wednesday at 10pm on BBC Radio 2.
