Boy George: 50 Inglorious Years

Boy George may have seen his obituary flashing before his eyes when he read the report from Tuesday's 50th birthday bash in The Sun today;

"George rose to fame in the 1980s as frontman of Culture Club, making headlines with his trademark appearance.
"The band went on to release hit records including Karma Chameleon and Do You Really Want To Hurt Me, before breaking up in the late 1980s.
"His 50 years hasn't been without drama too - overcoming a heroin addiction, an ongoing battle with depression and more recently a stint behind bars for falsely imprisoning a male escort.
"His eventful life also includes a cameo role in action TV series The A-Team in 1986, in an episode titled Cowboy George.
"In addition he set up his own market stall in London's East End in 2008 to sell budget clothing and has written songs for the BEACH BOYS, CHARLOTTE CHURCH and MICA PARIS.
"Earlier this year George announced a 30th anniversary reunion with Culture Club and the group will release new material in 2012."

I'm sure it's how he wanted to be remembered...
