Boy George Writing For Williams' Album

Shamed pop star BOY GEORGE is putting his time in jail to good use - by writing a comeback song for ROBBIE WILLIAMS.The former Culture Club frontman - real name George O'Dowd - was sentenced to serve 15 months in prison last month (Jan09) for chaining Norwegian Audun Carlsen to a hook in a bedroom at his East London apartment in April 2007.
He had planned to team up with Williams to work on the Angels hitmaker's forthcoming album - but his spell behind bars put an end to the collaboration.
Instead, the 47-year-old is working on tracks for the singer from his jail cell.
A source tells Britain's The Sun, "Robbie had tapped up George to write some tracks for his new album. They had intended to work together on the songs together, but they can't do that now.
"George has neglected his song-writing and is determined to hone his skills again. Without the distractions of the outside world he is bidding to wirte Rob a killer ballad from behind bars."

Any collaboration which gives you a feel of joy, success and any kind of progress is good. Sometimes efforts (and courage) to do a change in career (life) is payable and pleasant. I think that Robbie always have a reasons for his steps. PS Maybe Robbie can try to make songs where he will "use" a different (more sophisticate) interpretations and put songs like a bonus tracks on his album. I would like to hearsomething new in his interpretation, if he can allow, to himself, that tricky (unsafe) risk.Today is the 2.13.2009. and I wish you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY Robbie!Begin in life with new things,put on your heart different wings.And fly through years,without any fears.Whit happiness meets a baby tears.
