Boy George Says Madonna Is ‘Too Full of Herself’ — But There’s ‘Still Time’ to Be Friends

Boy George isn’t holding back in his memoir, Karma: My Autobiography.

The Culture Club star reflected on his many not-so-positive run-ins with Madonna over the years, noting that “every gay man loves Madonna and there’s no one gayer than me.”

He recalled the first time he met the Queen of Pop. “This is where Madonna alleges she met me, and I was bitchy,” he wrote in an excerpt shared with People. “She describes me as head to toe in Westwood.” George added that, at the time, he was wearing Sue Clowes exclusively, so the person she met couldn’t have been him.

Madge allegedly later snubbed him at the opening of an NYC club called Palladium. “Madonna arrived with Sean Penn and pretended she didn’t see me,” he wrote. “Madonna is everything it says on the tin but she adds new ingredients every day. I know for a fact she’s too full of herself to even mention me. She once said, ‘Boy George was mean to me in the eighties and he’s still mean.’ To be fair, I haven’t really been given the opportunity.”

However, George says he still loves some of her songs. “Not knowing anything about her I would assume she’d have issue with the word ‘some.’ … I have a sense of humour, I don’t think Madonna does, despite some of the clothes she wears (LOL),” he added.

“I love all the drama of, you know, the pop star behavior. I love to watch Madonna. I mean, the Madonna brand is genius,” George continued. “But outside of that, you know, it’s how you act. You know, because you want, as I say in the book, you want your artists to be weirdly beautiful and strange and all that, but you also want them to be kind of ordinary.”

However, he still has faith in their future. “Like Bette and Joan, we should have been friends,” he says. “There’s still time.”
