Band Name Origins:

  • Boy George wanted to make sure that everybody knew that he was a male. Many people mistaken him to be a homosexual, but he really isn't. Weird but true. He was embarrassed about his obesity, so he smothered himself in a ton of make-up so people wouldn't know about his fatness. Submitted by: Tiger No. 27

Crime Records:

"Possesion of Drugs"
Several times, most notably in 1986, arrested in the UK for cannabis possession, and later intercepted while en route to a party under suspecion of carrying drugs. A Culture Club tour was cancelled due to this, and it disbanded not long after. Ironically, in the song "Karma Chameleon" he stated "I'm a man, without conviction"...not any more. In 2005 he was busted in the US on cocaine charges. He eventually was fined, and had to do community service.

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"Having his drug problems outed on national TV"
George's brother David came on a U.K. TV show and blew the wistle on his heroin abuse problem.
Publicly George stated that he "hated" his brother for doing that but then he knew that there was a reason for it.
