News: Man Makes Joke

THE VOICE newcomer Boy George had TV bosses pressing the panic button after he said he had slept with American singer-songwriter Prince.

He made the outrageous claim during live auditions for the BBC1 singing show.

It sent the audience “absolutely wild” and forced producers to stop filming in a bid to restore calm.

Boy George made his comment about the legendary Purple Rain singer in an exchange with fellow judge Paloma Faith...

The Karma Chameleon hitmaker started it, saying: “I have duetted with some of the greatest soul singers in history including Luther Vandross and Smokey Robinson.”

Paloma replied: “Well OK, if we’re throwing big soul names out there I’ve performed with Prince.”

To which George retorted: “Forget that, darling, I’ve slept with Prince.” ...

The Sun.

Oh sod this for a game of soldiers, I'm going to the beach!

PS Lest we forget...

He pointed to a Bible. “But there’s the problem of interpretation, and you’ve got some churches, some people, basically doing things and saying it comes from here, but it doesn’t. And then on the opposite end of the spectrum you’ve got blue, you’ve got the Democrats, and they’re, like, ‘You can do whatever you want.’ Gay marriage, whatever. But neither of them is right.” 

When asked about his perspective on social issues—gay marriage, abortion—Prince tapped his Bible and said, “God came to earth and saw people sticking it wherever and doing it with whatever, and he just cleared it all out. He was, like, ‘Enough.’” 


  1. I remember about 30 years ago when Prince was unknown that his management company booked an small advert in Gay News for his first (later cancelled, concert) at The Dominion Theatre.

    1. Everybody sing! 'Am I black or white? Am I straight or gay?'
