Boy George is reaching out to Amy Winehouse to offer some support in her battle with alcohol abuse.
He should know a thing or two about drug and alcohol addiction, since he’s been sober for over two years — and now he wants to help Amy. He posted the video of Amy’s terrible performance in Serbia on his Twitter page, showing the singer stumbling around and slurring her words.
He called the video “truly heartbreaking stuff” and tweeted to Amy, “Come to a meeting babe, do you know how loved you are?”
Later, he added, “Step 1 is all about that realization, I hope I don’t sound judgmental, I’m really not!…I don’t know why people put it on Youtube. I would just go home and cry.”
Since the Serbian show, Amy has canceled her comeback tour until she can return to her best. We’re hoping that she can get her life straightened out, it’s such a shame, she has so much talent.
Get well soon, Amy. You have a lot of fans who are looking forward to your return and takeover of the charts!
Culture Club singer Boy George has been labeled singer-songwriter, DJ, fashion designer and photographer, but he’ll always be the one who introduced me to good old fashioned Reggae back in the 1980′s.
Culture Club’s debut album, Kissing To Be Clever, was released in 1982, included hits such as I’ll Tumble 4 Ya, Do You Really Want To Hurt Me and Time (Clock Of The Heart). With this album, they rose to international fame and became a household name. My favorite song from this particular album is I’m Afraid Of Me:

Check out the below videos to relive some of their hits, including, Do You Really Want To Hurt Me, Karma Chameleon , Church Of The Poison Mind and It’s A Miracle:
Boy George has also done some solo work, after parting ways with the band. In addition to that, every fan also needs an autographed photo of their favorite singer. Picture discs are that special, one-of-a-kind piece of memorabilia that is important to serious music collectors, such as myself. DVDs are also a good way for all of us fans to remember the good days, watching Karma Chameleon and for some of us, trying to emulate George’s immaculate makeup and fashion sense.
Most recently, George has collaborated with producer and guitarist, Mark Ronsonon his latest album, Record Collection. George provides the vocals for Somebody To Love Me, along with Miike Snow frontman Andrew Wyatt. The song is reminiscent of George’s earlier Reggae-infused music and style. Please click the following link to head on over to The Inside Source, for information on George’s comeback album with Mark Ronson. The song is definitely an earworm and showcases his musical talent.
Fans across the globe will agree, George really revolutionized the way music is today. In most of today’s pop and dance hits, you can hear a hint of his musical style. If you are an eighties music buff like me, then eBay has already been your destination for kinds of memorabilia. You can get Boy George CDs there, because it’s the cheapest way to get those hard to get items. Also, you can get rare items and autographed memorabilia. For the uber fan, you can go retro and pick up some Boy George 45rpm records. Personally, my favorite thing to collect are the magazine back issues that feature George and Culture Club on the covers.
What’s your favorite Culture Club/Boy George item to collect? What’s your favorite album? Let us know in the comments!
Boy George is making a comeback — Are you ready for it?
In Lady Gaga’s recent Vanity Fair feature, she talked about how she occasionally uses cocaine and how terrified she is of heroin. Fans seemed to like her honesty, except for former Culture Club frontman Boy George, who decided to call her out on it.
Could it be that her use of coke is not so ‘occasional?’ As a recovering addict who knows how dangerous ‘occasional’ use is, I can think of no reason for Gaga to reveal this to her young audience. My mum had the best take on this: ‘She’s reached the stage where she feels untouchable, you all get there — you did, son’ . . . Isn’t saying you’re an ‘occasional’ drug taker a bit like saying you’re bisexual? That usually means you’re raving.
Is he grasping for relevancy and using her to get it or do you agree? Thoughts?
Boy George and Adam Lambert hit up the Merah club in London, where George was said to have performed his latest single.
Adam was gracious that he was able to meet up with the pop music star and tweeted this message: “@theboygeorge I’m honored to meet u tonight! U are one of the original glam gods! Such a treat! on top of your royalty u were so sweet.:)”
Boy George has hinted at a possible reunion of the group that made him famous. The singer said that Culture Club may mark their 30th year anniversary by doing a one-off gig or a small tour.
He said, “I think we could do a one-off gig or maybe a small tour. It’s our 30th anniversary next year so we may do something. Last time we reformed, there was a point to it. We’ll see. It’s all about my mood at the time.”
Would you go see them perform? I know I would. I love old school Culture Club, I remember having their album, Colour By Numbers on 8-track.
