Boy George Storms Out Of Interview
Eighties pop star BOY GEORGE stormed out of an interview on live radio in Britain on Friday (26Sep08), after he was grilled on his drug-taking past.
The former Culture Club frontman ended the chat with Smooth Radio DJ Tony Lyman, when Lyman asked if there was a connection between his drug taking and the band splitting in 1986 and again in 2002.
He told the presenter, "I really don't want to do this interview... I'm sorry but I'm just not doing it," and left the studio.
Lyman tells CMU Music, "We were doing the interview via a studio link and I thought we'd got off to a good start. Boy George was giving some very honest answers. But then the air went dead, never a good thing in radio, and I realised he'd gone."
George was recently denied a visa to tour in the U.S. this year (08), because of outstanding criminal charges in the U.K.
Speaking after cancelling the tour, the star - real name George O'Dowd - revealed he has been clean since the end of 2002.
