Boy George Is A Hit In Jail

Jailed pop star BOY GEORGE has been given a break behind bars - because he's too popular.
The former Culture Club star feared he'd be beaten up or worse during his time at North London's infamous Pentonville prison, but nothing could be further from the truth.
Guards and fellow inmates have been so welcoming, according to reports, officials have had to move him to a "softer" part of the tough jail.
A prison insider tells blogger Perez Hilton, "The governors were taken aback by how popular he was. A lot of the guys are of the age when they remember what a big star he was and how good the Culture Club songs were. But some officers were being too kind and giving him smokes (cigarettes).
"It's ironic that he was worried about getting beaten up in Pentonville, but all that happened was people showered him with so much attention and kindness that they had to move him anyway."
George, real name George O'Dowd, was sentenced to serve 15 months behind bars earlier this month (Jan09) for chaining Norwegian Audun Carlsen to a hook in a bedroom at his East London apartment in April 2007.
