wednesday wickedness: boy george

whoops. mixed up my days again. and i don’t have vacation to blame this time! just tiredness.

boy george

1. “I can do anything. In GQ, I appeared as a man.”
What have you done that really surprised people?
i’m sure it surprises many to find out i’m a teacher.

2. “I suppose there is a lot of toughness in me.”
What was the last thing that happened that showed you how tough you are?
i really don’t think i’m very tough?

3. “I try to exist in a world where there is freedom of opinion, where you’re allowed to make jokes. I don’t want to live in some PC world where no-one’s allowed to say anything.”
What do you think about being PC (politically correct)?
it gets ridiculous at times, but it’s nice to see people sensitive to others. sometimes when it’s overboard, though, it does seem condescending.

4. “I find it difficult to say this, but I’m quite a loving person and I’ve always been loving to my friends. In the long run, that pays off. I’m very interested in other people, and if you are, they’re interested in you.”
Do you have an easy time making friends?

5. “Remember that I was out of the closet at the age of sixteen. My parents knew I was gay; I`d had to tell them.”
At what age and situation were you in when you “came out”, in the sense of true honesty, with your parents?
i don’t understand?

6. “People say things about me all the time and I get over it. I`ve had some appalling things told about me.”
What is the worst lie that was told about you that you felt compelled to respond to?
hmm. can’t really think of anything. i’m sure there was, though. probably something the kids said and parents misinterpreted.

7. “I’d rather have a cup of tea than sex.”
Are there a lot of things more important than sex to you?
i wouldn’t say a *lot*. but some things are.

8. “I knew style and content went hand in hand.”
What celebrity do you find that their sense of style speaks to you?
gosh, i really don’t know. i’m not much of a fashion person.

9. “In the ’60s everybody wanted to be the Beatles or the Stones, in the ’70s there were bands everybody tried to emulate, like Led Zeppelin. And I think in the ’80s you had lots of bands that had quite individual sounds, … ’80s Rewind.”
What do you think about today’s music? How does it compare to what you consider YOUR day?
my day would be the 80s, i guess, early 90s. some of today’s music is quite boppy, i must admit. i hear the kids blasting their radios after school, and sometimes i can’t help but to bop along. some stuff i think is just far too … out there. but i guess that was the same in the 80s–poppy music and stuff that was way out there. it’s more rappy now, i think. we were more synthesizery.

10. “Most psychiatrists or analysts are a waste of time.”
What do you think about shrinks and psychologists?
i don’t know. it was something i was interested in for a while, how a mind works. but it’s something i would’ve never been good at. i suck at giving advice.
