Do You Really Wanna Hurt Me?
Boy George and other 80s stars that make the police blotter.
So, Boy George was arrested the other day for chaining a guy up in his house. I laughed so hard when I saw them hauling him off. I couldn't decide which movie it reminded me more of...the scene in Pulp Fiction, with the gimp chained in the basement; or Silence of the Lambs. Can you imagine Boy George saying "It will put the eye liner on, or it will get the hose"?
Why can't these former singers stay out of the news? I'm not talking about the current crop of young nut jobs? I'm talking about the old ones that should know better? Every five years, George Michaels is in a bathroom getting arrested, or last time, it was asleep at the wheel, and under the influence.
I got into a huge argument with co-worker Jay A. Sanford about Pee Wee Herman once. He's been to a few parties with the guy, and they know a few of the same people. And, when Herman pleaded guilty to possessing some child pornography, and later claimed he was innocent, that's when our argument started.
I won't get into it here...but if Pee Wee didn't learn his lesson after the movie theatre incident almost ended his career, and cost him millions and millions...
I remember hearing a DJ say "There's nothing more embarrassing then an 80s band being on a VH1 show."
Well, I'd say, being caught in a bathroom with Larry Craig or having someone chained in a dungeon is probably worse then re-hashing one of your 80s hits with a receeding hairline.
