Oh Boy! I have been blessed to see the legendary Boy George twice in the last 48 hours.
When I was young and impressionable (yes, can you believe there was a time when that was the case!) and when I had strange feelings that made me start to think “I wasn’t normal,” I had someone like Boy George who dressed as he wanted to, said what he wanted to and refused to compromise to look up to as a role model, and for that, I am so grateful!!! From the earliest stages of his career to present day, Boy George does not give a fuck what you think and never minces words. Those are two qualities that are I still admire to this day and I definitely live my life in that way. There are a lot of haters out there (like people that have nothing better to do than go on According2g.com and leave shitty comments, but THANK YOU for keeping me on the tip of your mind so passionately and for your patronage), so this is for you. Imagine what you could achieve if you channel that hatred elsewhere into something productive? So this song is for you – the song of course is “Victims,” a Culture Club cover that Boy George performed at Irving Plaza in New York on April 22, 2014. Put a little love in your heart. You might be surprised! xx
I met George again the day after his show at a TV show taping and true to form, George was taking zero shit from any of his fans that waited on a ridiculously chilly night to meet our beloved icon. He took no shit, but he took photos and I am so grateful for the opportunity. And if you learn nothing – always have the new album with you! Boy George – thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
