One of my childhood heroes, Boy George, will be sent to prison for 15 months for handcuffing a male prostitute to a wall in his London apartment.

This really bums me out. Boy George, 47, should be a billionaire, living in an English castle, resting on the laurels of consistently giving us great pop music in the 1980s –okay, the “War Song” sucked, but I liked it –as well as challenging gender stereotypes and making a generation of gay kids feel hip.

It’s unbelievable to me that one of the most original talents to come out of the British pop scene is going to be sitting in a cell for the next year and a half. What the hell is wrong with him?
