Boy George's Bad Karma
Looks like '80s institution Boy George won't be tumbling for the tens (hundreds, maybe?) of fans who looked forward to his U.S. tour this summer. U.S. Customs denied his request for a visa, and he is "devastated." The last time he was in the U.S., he could be seen sweeping the New York City streets clean after getting busted for cocaine. This time, he'd planned to perform for his former colleagues at the Department of Sanitation's Family Picnic as a gesture of thanks. In an exclusive interview with Paper magazine, he also revealed his excitement over Barack Obama's "Yes We Can" speech, even using it as inspiration for a new song called "Yes I Can." It's not about getting an American visa, obviously.
