Boy George Opens Up About George Michael's Last Years

Boy George is speaking about George Michael‘s final years after passing away at 53 on Christmas Day.

“I read stuff in the papers,” Boy George, 55, said. “But I never really knew really what – he really kept people out, he was quite private.”

“In the early days, we were competition to each other. Both called George, both made soul music. So in the early days, we were really in competition. Then sort of later on, I started to really appreciate him as a musician – you know, right around ‘Faith.’ I started to really appreciate his talent,” he added.

“It wasn’t really a feud,” Boy George said about their spat. “In the ’80s, everyone – Peter Burns, me, we all used to be really bitchy about each other. It’s like the thing that you did in the ’80s with those pop magazines. Now it’s the Housewives who do it!,” he continued. “But in the ’80s, you just said vile things about everyone.”
