Boy George Back In His Prime. Pop Culture History.

Q: When was Boy George and his band, “Culture Club” at their peak?

Mr. Pop History – I’d say 1983 just after “Do You really Want to Hurt Me” from the album “Kissing to Be Clever.”

Boy George was made for MTV. His half-masculine half-feminine look got people talking and helped keep the hits coming into 1984.

Boy George Lands 15 Months In Jail

Boy George sentenced to 15 months in jail – The former Culture Club singer imprisoned Audun Carlsen during a drug-fuelled naked photoshoot at his flat in east London. Sentencing the musician – real name George O’Dowd – the judge at Snaresbrook Crown Court said he was guilty of “gratuitous violence”.

The judge also condemned his “premeditated”, “callous”, and “degrading” actions which “traumatized” his victim. George, who is 47, was convicted of detaining Norweigian escort Carlsen against his will last month. Carlsen, 29, told the trial jury he was hit with a metal chain as he tried to escape from the flat.
