I can name more than five Culture Club hits, but only because that was my era and I have a good memory for music. They did a fast vanishing act, didn't they? I'm not just talking about the group breaking up; I mean their near-total erasure from the popular consciousness. I never hear their songs anywhere anymore. People who weren't around for their heyday have no idea how big they were for a couple years.

I'm a bit surprised by the amount of people here who think Boy George is broke. The only people who get paid without question every time a song sells or streams are the publishers & the songwriters. Performers typically receive a royalty, but even this is sometimes called into question depending on who owns the recording. Producers often receive a royalty, but again, this depends on the agreement under which the producer was hired. Considering that Boy George wrote or co-wrote almost everything he's ever recorded & that "Karma Chameleon" (not to mention Culture Club's other hits) appears on just about every 80s comp there is, it's quite easy to understand that he was set for life a long time ago & will be for a long time to come.

You pay more for your ticket, you get preferential treatment. Quite simple really.

Also bear in mind that the people paying the extra $$$ for leg room, champagne, nicer meals and priority boarding, departing and luggage collection are also subsidising the cheapest seats on the plane.

I flew first class once after an inheritance and will always remember the woman at check in in Guayaquil clicking her fingers at me and saying "SIR THIS IS FIRST CLASS" and pointing to the huge queue for economy. Just because I was sunburnt, unshaven and in shorts and a hoodie after a week travelling around the Galapagos islands didn't mean I didn't have the dollar, bitch.

George is asset rich but income poor. He will need to work for the rest of his life to maintain his living standards.

When he was in prison for handcuffing the prostitute he'd hired to a radiator and beating him with a chain his management agreed a deal for him to appear on Celebrity Big Brother when he was released.

The probation office objected that someone on probation/parole shouldn't be able to appear on a reality tv show whilst serving the remainder of their sentence in the community.

After a legal battle that would have cost Boy George A LOT OF MONEY the judge ruled "I consider that right-thinking members of the public would take the view that an offender serving the non-custodial part of a sentence of imprisonment should not be allowed to take part in a high profile, controversial television production, promoting his status as a celebrity and with considerable financial gain." and George was not allowed to appear. He was desperate for the cash.

Georgie has been more of a reality star the last decade. . . that's his primary schtick now. His creative years have long been gone. . . save for all the rumours that any/every drama dust up has been scripted by him because he can make more money as a clown than a queen. T

he decade before 00s, he was into grooming multiple electro pop boy bands in his image but they all would end up escaping his clutches rather quickly. . . as he would go from just producing their track to trying to insert himself into it.

With his own work, he had the problem of not being able to update his image with the times, only being able to maintain his weight on drugs and simply too old for the demands of the lifestyle. . even dj'ing is a drag on that.

TRuth is most people confuse him with everyone else... while they might know of more than one song, they only recognize him from one video because he haunts them and not in a good way.

Others might have had pleasant enough experiences with him but I recall him being rather prissy, highstrung to strung out and exhausting. Also, just giving off an uncomfortably asexual or fetishistic vibe than gay... in a Richard Simmons kind of way. Where everything about them screams socially/stereotypically gay to their str8 audiences but seems out of sorts and painstakingly awkard in actual gay scenes.

I saw the Spice Girls in concert when they did their US tour and each of the girls performed one of their hits. But Posh came out and strutted down the catwalk like she was a supermodel. The audience gave her a nice cheer. Bitch can't sing. Even she knows it.

The band sounds good again. George's voice no longer has that hoarse, gravelly thing. Maybe he had surgery on his throat or something.

His voice does not improved. Also, he has HEAVY backup singer support there. But I'm glad to hear it!

I know someone who was around during the 80’s heroin druggy years. It’s estimated that George blew £20 million during those years.

I'll stay out of the discussion of whether Boy George sounds good now, but the drag act kept a lot of people from focusing on how good he sounded THEN, when he was in his 20s and his group was riding high from 1982-84. Most of the talk was always about his appearance, identity, and personality, but his sound was so smooth and easy.

It's interesting to me that Culture Club became passé at the exact moment Wham was breaking through worldwide, late '84. It was as if there could be one unstable gay English white-soul singer named "George" could be a megastar at a time. And George Michael could amass a kind of female following that really wasn't accessible to Boy George. I know George M. seems screamingly obvious in retrospect (and was at the time, to most of us), but so many straight guys were rocking the earrings and frosted hair and all that in the mid-'80s; people with no gaydar were confused about signifiers. So a lot of unworldly teen girls still had crushes on George M.

Maybe they grew up up to be the unworldly women with crushes on Clay.

George had a fantastic voice and musicality. People who claim talentlessness are Helen Keller or have some bitter axe to grind. George was a fashion/celebrity/identity wunderkind, as well. Very clever there, on par with the greats, who will go unmentioned to avoid a troll war. Guys with Irish genetics are known for big balls and I think Boy George evidenced a lot of balls in his rise to stardom.

Apparently George is doing rather well financially. Last year he shelled out £100k to redo the garden at his London mansion.

He bought a nice house decades ago. I remember he was even featured in MTV cribs, I saw that when I was growing up. Doesn't he work as a DJ as well? He is talented. I'm sure he ain't gonna starve.

Too bad his voice isn't the same but that's what auto tune is for. they have that for live performances as well. Paul McCartney uses it too. He is fucking 80 years old and just gave a concert in metlife stadium sounding awesome. I heard him sing live years and years ago and he couldn't even hit the notes that weren't high but now his vocals are so strong and good. the magic of technology!

So a lot of unworldly teen girls still had crushes on George M.

Not wanting to play down George Michael's impact but he was part of a movement of (mostly straight) men who were comfortable playing with their image and queering their look - Duran Duran, Human League, Spandau Ballet, ABC - along with women who didn't play up to expected feminine norms - Bananarama, Annie Lennox, Alison Moyet, The Belle Stars etc.

Lots of those acts were strong in the first half of the 80s but didn't manage to sell consistently afterwards. The two acts who did (George Michael and Eurythmics) turned out to be absolutely phenomenal songwriters as well as performers.

Boy George's ego and drug use was a problem, but Culture Club just didn't have any decent songs post 1984. He did well with a cover of Everything I Own in 1987, after the drugs scandal, but people just didn't care for him.

I posted earlier in the thread about George being asset rich but cash poor, which is why he has to work on reality shows so often.

A house that size in Hampstead will cost a huge amount to maintain. Add his lifestyle (he's still a frequent user of drugs and sex workers) and his habit of expensive things like first class travel, and his royalties and investments won't cover it all.

Just looking at the top 40 when George was number one with Everything I Own.

Other gay acts in the chart were Freddie Mercury, Erasure, Man 2 Man and Man Parrish, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, The Communards, George Michael and dirty cottager Stedman Pearson from Five Star.

I'm so glad he's doing well now. We almost lost him. But he clawed his way back from addiction and obscurity. He's a survivor.

And a pioneer. No one was coming out in the 80s like that. He suffered because of it, but he's a tough cookie. And yes, a role model.

It's funny that in the Band Aid song "Do They know it's Christmas", George is the main voice and really carries the song. He's one of the few pop singers from the 80's who could actually carry a tune. Culture Club had quite a few hits, but their music didn't age well. It's not even in rotation on oldies stations. Despise Victoria Beckham. I'm the one who mentioned her on the Dark Energy thread.

Does anyone know how much George’s manager (Paul Kemsley aka PK to the RHOBH fans) makes? He and Dorit can’t possibly make enough from that gig to support their ostentatious lifestyle.

He has to work on reality shows so often? Are you his accountant? Most people want to work as much as have to. Jennifer Aniston and Kaley Cuoco made a million dollar an episode for last half of their sitcoms yet both have multiple commercial gigs.

Jennifer Aniston and Kaley Cuoco work on projects they have creative control over.

George owns some expensive properties that require a lot of maintenance and has expensive tastes. His royalties don't cover his outgoings, so he has to take reality tv gigs.

That's nothing to be ashamed of, but it's a statement of fact.
