Boy George's mother was so concerned about her son's safety sweeping the streets of New York City recently, she offered to do the community service herself. The former Culture Club singer, real name GEORGE O'DOWD, was given the five-day sentence after being found guilty of wasting police time when he falsely reported a burglary at his Manhattan apartment in October 2005. When he told his mother about the punishment she immediately urged him to accept some extra help. George recalls, "I'm a nightmare, I tell her everything. She still gets shocked by the things I do. "My mum wanted to come out and help me. She gets worried about things. "She hears things in the news and people ring her up and tell her, 'Boy George is doing this or that'." George completed his sentence last month (18AUG06).
