Boy George: 'Drag Winehouse Offstage'

BOY GEORGE has urged AMY WINEHOUSE's handlers to "drag" the troubled singer offstage and let her deal with her drug demons out of the limelight.
George, a reformed drug addict, insists he knows exactly what the Rehab hitmaker is going through - and what she needs more than anything is the support of friends and peace and quiet.
The former Culture Club star, who admits to being a big Winehouse fan, says, "You can't stop someone taking drugs, I know that, but you can certainly stop them performing. Somebody needs to stop her going onstage.
"I've been in that place... I know exactly what it's like and I know how bad it is for her.
"I mean there's nothing of her... she's emaciated. It just breaks my heart to see it. Who is around to drag her off the stage?"

Totally agree with George here! He oughta know - he has been there, done that and come out clean on the other side. AND Ms. Winehouse's parents need to step up, act like parents and get her into rehab. It is tragic to see her on stage these days.

GEORGE O'DOWD (Boy George) IS CORRECT!!!! WHAT THE HECK IS THE MATTER WITH MANAGERS, PARENTS, ETC.???!!! GOD FORBID ANYTHING HAPPENS TO THAT GIRL...IF IT DOES---I DON'T WANT TO SEE ANYONE CRYING! NOW IS THE TIME TO DRAG HER OFF THE STAGE...GET HER HELP NOW! IT'S DISGUSTING HOW THE SO-CALLED "ALMIGHTY DOLLAR" CONTROLS PEOPLE'S DECISIONS---ISN'T HER LIFE WORTH ANYTHING TO THESE PEOPLE? YOU HAVE TO BE KIDDING ME! THE UNITED STATES SHOULD BAN HER RECORDS/TOURS/CONCERTS/RADIO EXPOSURE UNTIL SHE IS HELPED---INSTEAD OF PROMOTING HER. AND ALSO INSTEAD OF FOCUSING ON BANNING GEORGE FROM TOURING THIS SUMMER---IT BOTHERS ME HOW LITTLE PEOPLE "IN CHARGE" ARE SO STUPID!!!!
