During a radio appearance, out singer
Boy George quipped that he's not sure why Madonna “hates” him.
The 57-year-old Boy George is currently
touring with the B-52s and the Thompson Twins' Tom Bailey to promote
Culture Club's long-awaited sixth studio album, Life, which
arrives October 26. Madonna, 60, is also working on new music and is
expected to release a new album later this year.
During his appearance on Nova's
Fitzy & Wippa radio show, Boy George joked that Madonna
“I don;t know if she [really] hates
me anymore,” Boy George said.
“I've always been a secret Madonna
fan, really. I've got quite a few of her records. We just never
ever kind of managed to meet. It's the weirdest thing.”
In 2006, Boy George called Madonna a
“horrible human being with no redeeming qualities.”
“I just think she's a vile, hideous,
horrible human being with no redeeming qualities,” he said in a
Channel 4 documentary. “There's nothing nice about her. I've
never heard anyone say anything nice about her at all.”
