Both Boy George and Jack Black are guests on Conan tonight and the TBS late night host asked the Culture Club singer who some of his musical influences are. George O’Dowd told him they are some of the ’70s biggest bands like The Doors. The Tenacious D rocker agreed and added that Jim Morrison has the best yell in Rock’n’Roll. Conan told them if they like The Doors so much, then why don’t they sing one of their songs. They agreed and Robbie Krieger from the band joined them.
What happens next is so trippy, I feel like I was doing some of the same things Morrison did back in the day.
Even though all of their styles are so different, oddly enough, combined it works.
So as The Doors said, “Hello, I Love You, won’t you tell me your name?” C’mon once Boy George is done touring with his band, he should totally tour with Black and Krieger. What should we call them?
Culture Club just can’t miss each other blind, so they are getting back together again. Boy George and the Club didn’t just take part in this photoshoot, but they will also be touring Great Britain in December, and they are recording a new album together as we speak. Their first one in 15 years.
I guess some can say It’s a Miracle, but I will say it is just Karma Chameleon. Let’s just hope they only sing The War Song during concerts because I would like to attend the Church of the Poison Mind one more time. They truly are a great band to see live. Plus a bunch of their tunes have stood the test of time.
Last week Lady Gaga went out looking a lot like Boy George during his Culture Club days. Well the singer, who’s been doing the wild look since before Gaga was even born, responded to her copying his look. Which seems to answer the question of Do You Really Want to Hurt Me? I say we give him Applause for his response.
Who do you think won this battle Boy or Lady?
You know how some people say the expression redneck is due to the tans that the people get on their necks? Well looking at this picture of Boy George at the Elle Style Awards, he is the opposite. From the back he is as white as a ghost, but from the front he has some color to his skin. I am not saying that is a good thing, I am just saying he is a white neck. If he is going to show off the back of his neck he should put some makeup, so the back matches the front.
Boy George says that not only will Culture Club tour next year, but they are also going to release a new album. According to The Guardian next year is their 30th anniversary which makes the reunion even more special. Not only because with Boy George’s track record it is amazing he is still alive, but that means he has been in our lives for that long. Can you believe we have him in our Church of Poison Mind for that long? I guess when they realized they have been around that long instead of having a Crying Game, they decided to Move Away from their difference and come and go and come and go to a city near you!
I saw them at their last reunion tour and I will tell you if they come anywhere within driving distance of you, make sure to see them because they are worth it!!!
Boy George DJed for Illamasqua at Selfridges and it looks like they paid him in makeup! I know he is known for painting his face, but I think he is wearing more than I do when I go out to a fancy event.
BTW the Culture Club singer is looking really good, I think he lost a few pounds. That or black really is slimming!!!
I haven’t seen Boy George in a while and boy has the Culture Club singer put on a few pounds. Maybe the next time he sits down to eat he needs to Move Away from all that bad food then ask the meal Do You Really Want to Hurt Me and finally tell those extra calories to Miss Me Blind? He seriously needs to go to the gym and tell the personal trainer that I’ll Tumble 4 Ya. So hopefully by the next time we see the Fat Cat, he will Karma Chameleon into a man with a few less pounds on him.
BTW I posted that last picture in case you didn’t that that Church of the Poison Mind belonged to him because who else would get that tattoo on the back of their head. Most people would go through a Crying Game if the got inked there.
Boy George once asked Do You Really Want To Hurt Me? And I guess his fan in the Hampshire decided to do just that after only 89 of them decided to buy tickets to his show at the 2,200 seater Portsmouth Guildhall according to Yahoo! Music. Needless to say he had to cancel the gig due to poor tickets sales. Major ouch!
Looks like Boy George will be back to selling T-Shirts because he was denied the visa he needed to enter The US according to E!. Boy George was denied the visa because of his criminal past and his upcoming case in November.
George's rep said the singer was "devastated" he would not be able to play in the States for what would have been the first time in a decade, but that his legal team is working hard to get clearance for the '80s icon to convince officials for a do-over decision.
"George is astounded at the decision and is having lawyers here in the States look at it in the hope that someone will change their mind," the singer's management said in a statement. "George has not been convicted of anything in London and there is a presumption in the Western World of innocence until proven guilty."
"He is clearly not considered any form of risk," his management said. "George really would love to come to America and repay his American fans' loyalty and that is why we are asking the U.S. authorities to reconsider their decision."
I think it serves him right for charging so much to see him without Culture Club. C'mon over $70 bucks to see him perform? Sorry he is not worth. If he really wanted to repay his American fan' loyalty he would charge half the price and then I would fight to have him come in to the country.
Less than a month after Boy George was seen selling T-Shirts for around $10 in a London flea market, it was announced today that he is selling tickets for over $60 to see him tour solo in The US for the first time in 10 years. If the price of that ticket doesn't hurt you then you can check out where he is playing at Boy George Live. But seriously I wouldn't pay more to see him live than what he was selling the T-Shirts for and I think most people will agree with me. I have a feeling most of these dates will be cancelled due to lack of sales.
