"A Chorus of Snorting", Boy George Details Drug Use at Brit Awards 2014

Boy George has revealed the alleged drug use at the Brit Awards 2014, claiming to have heard a "chorus of snorting" in the toilets during the show's ad breaks. George, 52, suggested that despite rebranding , venue changes and extravagant performances, the often derided awards show remains the same.

"As I took a leak at The Brit's I could hear a chorus of snorting! We have always called the Ad breaks 'the coke run'. It's still the case'" tweeted the singer after Wednesday's show (February 19, 2014).

Boy George also took the opportunity to defend his controversial choice of eye make-up, which some critics had branded inappropriate given it made it appear as though the singer was bleeding from a facial wound. "Tasteless? Yet worth a whole lot of comment! ??" he said.

"I knew who was winning British female. I saw Ellie the night before, and I said: "You've got this.Prince is gonna give you your award," he said.
