Lady Gaga, she of the weird outfits, recently asked 80’s singer Boy George to sign her vagina. The pair met backstage at one of her shows, and Gaga, in her desperate quest to always be the most alternative girl in the room, requested the his John Hancock on her genitals. Sadly, the once-hip pop star has turned into a grandfather, and would not oblige.
“It was very brief when I met her, there were a lot of people in the room, it was all a bit chaotic,” Boy George told British paper The Mirror. “I haven’t been around that kind of circus in years! I was like, ‘Oh my God!’ You know, I’ve been that woman! So it was very interesting to be on the outside looking in. She was very sweet. She asked me to sign her vagina.”
Boy G. signed her hat instead, foiling the Lady’s attempting at alterna-coolness. But for reals, Gaga’s “I’m so weird, look at me!” shtick is tired. We all saw Ally Sheedy in The Breakfast Club…been there, done that. Isn’t the weirdest thing for the singer to do now is just act normal? [Photos: GettyImages]
Boy George must not have tied up any male prostitutes and threatened them with a chain over the last four months—the Culture Club singer has left prison after serving just over a quarter of his sentence for false imprisonment. He even looks healthier than when he went in—maybe he got into lifting weights!
While his good behavior behind bars got him out early, Boy (George O’Dowd to family) will still have to wear an ankle monitor and keep a curfew. According to The Sun, O’Dowd was greeted by plenty of bagels and cakes—but no alcohol—at his homecoming.

Staff at a stationary shop in Kent, England, were obviously asleep at the wheel when they accepted forged banknotes the other day. Because not only was the £20 note not real, it clearly had a photo of jailed 80s pop star Boy George where The Queen’s head usually is. “I was shocked, I couldn’t believe it — we’ve certainly had nothing like it before,” said a spokeswoman for the store. We’ve posted up photos of her Maj and the fallen pop idol (currently serving a 15-month jail sentence for falsely imprisoning a male escort) above. Can you tell the difference?

Boy George was sentenced to 15 months in jail today, a month after he was found guilty of imprisoning a male escort and threatening him with a chain. “In my view there can be no doubt that your premeditated, callous and humiliating handcuffing and detention of Mr. Carlsen shocked, degraded and traumatized him,” said the judge. “He was deprived of his liberty and his human dignity without warning or proper explanation to him of its purpose, length or purported justification.”
The 2007 assault occurred when George, high on cocaine, suspected the escort of attempting to download photos from his personal computer. George’s alleged accomplice in the kidnapping has not been identified.

Glamorous 1980s popstar (and erstwhile musical impresario – rememberTaboo? Actually, don’t) Boy George has been found guilty this morning of imprisoning a male escort in his London flat. He faces a stint in the slammer after a jury decided that yes, he did attack rent boy Auden Carlson when he tried to escape and tied him to the bed. Boy George claimed he handcuffed Carlson because he suspected him of stealing photos from his laptop when they’d met a few months earlier — but Auden reckoned it was an old-fashioned case of sour grapes.
“I think he couldn’t handle the refusal — me not having sex with him,” he said during the trial.
Look, it’s perfectly understandable to er, lash out (with a metal chain, allegedly) when you’re feeling a bit rejected. We joke, of course. But it’s a big fall from grace for the former pop icon, who’s due to be sentenced Jan 16. Still, it will surely give the worlds’ headline writers lots and lots of fun in the next few days. We’re looking forward to “Do You Really Want To Hurt Me? – Yes!” [Photo: Getty Images]
Check out our photo retrospective of the highs and lows Boy George’s career:
Boy George knows what it’s like to be a British singer with flamboyant hair, gaudy women’s clothing and too much make up. He also knows what it’s like to be in the throes of a massive drug addiction. So will Amy Winehouse accept the advice the Culture Clubber offered to Times Online?
When you’re hellbent on destroying yourself everyone else is powerless, especially the people who love you most. Until she decides she wants to change no one can do anything.
…[She should do] therapy, maybe. Rehab. NA is amazing: there are people from all walks of life. It brings you down to earth. When I first went I was really scathing: they mentioned God and I was like, ‘I’m out of here’. I was quiet at the beginning, but you open up. You have to help yourself.
George credits NA with helping him kick cocaine last year, following an arrest that had George picking up trash in Manhattan (the U.S. has denied the British star any work visas since). His new single, inspired by the experience, is titled “Yes, We Can.” Timely!
