Boy George tells ITN the long running feud between himself and George Michael is long gone. “There’s no problem with me and George and there hasn’t been for a long time,” the singer said. “We haven’t spoken recently, but you know I’ve always liked him as an artist. I’ve always thought he was a great singer and a great writer. It was never anything to do with him as a musician.” Watch the comments via YouTube below.

@PerezHilton Don’t know what your playing at girl but your being a total cu**!
Coby Koehl is right, queens should never stab each other in the back, very sad Perez!
Just blocked Perez, anyone else following the unfollowing?
@gomezhyatt What we say about others say’s so much about us!
Everyone breath and say OM, don’t let her curdle the milk of human kindness!

In an upcoming documentary to be shown on Britain’s Channel 4, Boy George lashed out at Madonna again, just months after he opined that the Material Girl “should have just shut up” after releasing ‘Holiday’. “Madonna… I just think she’s a vile, hideous human being with no redeeming qualities,” he fumed. “There’s nothing nice about her. I’ve never heard anyone say anything nice about her at all. And anyone that’s ever met her she’s been vile to. Vile, full of herself – so unspiritual. How has this woman got away with it for so long?” Read more.
Please Adopt Me Madonna
October 15, 2006 – Raybon Kan of the Sunday Star Times weighed in on Madonna’s move to adopt a orphaned boy from Malawi, sticking up for the Material Girl in the face of a global outcry. “What would you rather have in your face: the paparazzi in your pushchair, or flies you haven’t the energy to swat away,” he asked. “And even if an adopted child is nothing but a status symbol, it’s a better scenario for all concerned than celebrities with more fleets of Humvees. It’s never the beggars who are choosers. Do we ever hear the kids who’ve been adopted by celebrities, wishing they’d been left at the orphanage? Does Nicole Richie wish Lionel Richie hadn’t adopted her? If Soon-Yi hadn’t been adopted by Mia Farrow, she would never have met her future husband.”
Madonna In Tears After Leaving Adopted Son Behind

[Laughter and applause] Now Britney’s baby will have somebody to go to therapy with.”
Jay Leno joked during his Tonight Show monologue on Monday night, “’80s icon Boy George, remember Boy George? Well, as part of his drug possession conviction he’s been sentenced to community service. He’s been ordered to pick up trash in the park. Don’t confuse that with George Michael, who does that for recreation. That’s a totally different.”
Jimmy Kimmel joked during his ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ monologue on Tuesday night, “Boy George, a judge sentenced him to five days of community sentence. Boy will pick up garbage for the Department of Sanitation in New York. That must be a great morale builder for the guys that work at the Department of Sanitation. That their job is what someone is sentenced to when they’re arrested. But how cool would it be if Boy George picked up your garbage. If someone told me 12 years ago that the lead singer of Culture Club wld be picking up trash on the streets of New York — I would have said that’s about right, to be honest with you.”
