Boy George Can’t Win

bgfinger.jpg
Scandal prone Boy George better learn to read before he writes! What started as a simple autograph turned into a very expensive agreement:

The gay entertainer was on the decks [at a nightclub] at 3am amid hundreds of revelers, when a lurking solicitor sidled up to the DJ stand.

Amid the writhing bodies and pumping music the lawyer, disguised as a clubber, handed the pop star a piece of paper. Thinking it was an autograph-hunting fan, the DJ duly obliged with a quick signature – which will now cost him £36,000 [about $73,872] – the cash he owes after being sued by a club promoter.

That promoter, Kasia Saleh, filed a lawsuit against George after he ditched a pre-paid gig to deal with his coke-related woes.

George, who also faces charges for imprisoning a Norwegian whore, must either pay Saleh the money or declare bankruptcy. The singer didn’t have any comment, but one witness describes him as “gobsmacked,” which is exactly what it sounds like.

      And did she ever return the thousands Care Resource, the Miami AIDS services agency, paid her to DJ the 2005 White Party fundraiser but never showed up?

      Perhaps we should call him “across the pond scum.”

      On the bright side, looks like he uses less eye make-up than Fox News’s Shepard Smith.

      It’s my understanding that he never shows up to U.S. gigs, as he’s not allowed in the Country because of a drug conviction. And yet, people still seem to sign him up for things.

      Although I’m not going to really be sad over the a lost gig at the White Party, perhaps a few less people went home with AIDS that weekend because they were too upset that Boy George didn’t show to have had speed-induced unprotected sex.

      Yeah, so they stayed home and went on the Net to troll for sex instead of being in a fun, public environment where they could dance, have fun and be social.

      You’re an idiot.

      The good news is that he’ll always have his looks.

      George is not banned from the United States. He was convicted of drug possession in the 80’s, but the U.S. has allowed him in many times since then. He was here to do Taboo on Broadway and has djed numberous times in the U.S. He was recently convicted of wasting police time which is not a felony and would not cause him to be banned.
      So the reason he didn’t show up at this particular event wasn’t because he was banned but because Diva George was not in the mood to show up. I’m glad he has to pay up.
