The Man Keeps Boy George Down

Geez; you falsely imprison one male escort, and suddenly you’re an international pariah.

Former Culture Club singer Boy George (né George O’Dowd) has been denied a visa for the U.S. leg of his upcoming tour due to his upcoming criminal trial, according to E! Online.

O’Dowd has pleaded not guilty to charges of chaining a male prostitute to a wall in his London apartment, and will face trial in November. Apparently, U.S. authorities would prefer that O’Dowd not run around chaining up male hookers stateside.

“George really would love to come to America and repay his American fans’ loyalty,” O’Dowd’s manager said in a statement, “and that is why we are asking the U.S. authorities to reconsider their decision.”

He should probably be detained in Gitmo for the makeup alone.
