I can do anything. In GQ, I appeared as a man.
– Boy George
My mother and father were fantastic, very active. I find it difficult to say this, but I’m quite a loving person and I’ve always been loving to my friends. In the long run, that pays off. I’m very interested in other people, and if you are, they’re interested in you.
I think people could be a bit friendlier. The only real contact you have with people is when they’re annoyed if you’ve had a party – you know, it’s been a bit too noisy for them or something.
She’s probably in denial that she’s a great big ball of insecurity and I’m quite well aware that I am one.
I try to exist in a world where there is freedom of opinion, where you’re allowed to make jokes. I don’t want to live in some PC world where no-one’s allowed to say anything.
I’ve had to write in a different way because I’m not in a bad place and I’m not heartbroken, so there’s no one I want revenge on.
Separation penetrates the disappearing person like a pigment and steeps him in gentle radiance.
You get much more done if you go to bed early and get up early.
I’d got very successful, everyone knew who I was, but I felt very empty.
I just go in my back garden. It’s the only place where people don’t come and bother you.
People say things about me all the time and I get over it. I’ve had some appalling things told about me.
A lot of people felt I was getting work because I was Boy George. My response at the time was that there’s a lot of DJs making records, they’re not all making good records, but they have the right to do that.
I started going to Madame Louise’s, the lesbian club where all the punk bands used to go – the Sex Pistols, the Clash. I remember seeing Billy Idol walk in there; he was gorgeous.
I suppose there is a lot of toughness in me.
I’m of the opinion that as a DJ you must always play what you love and ignore what’s ‘trendy’ because true passion always eclipses what’s fashionable. Quality is always fashionable.
I knew style and content went hand in hand.
I was unwelcome in the U.S. for four years.
I’m being honest, I say what I think.
Beethoven had a great look. It was very much about the drama of appearance.
I’m always being inspired .
An actor is a guy who, if you ain’t talking about him, he ain’t listening.
Remember that I was out of the closet at the age of sixteen. My parents knew I was gay; I’d had to tell them.
A lot of what I’ve been learning in the last two years is due to therapy – about my sexuality, why things go wrong, why relationships haven’t worked. It isn’t anything to do with anybody else; it’s to do with me.
I’m not responsible enough to have a dog – or a child.
Part of me looks at the gay movement now and worries that we’re losing our individuality.
I also tried to avoid doing obvious dance records.
