    When I was a young girl of 11 or 12, I had the HUGEST crush on
    Boy George. We're talking: my walls were plastered with posters,
    I had about 75 buttons and my first concert was to see him.
    I remember telling my Mother that when I turned 14 I was going to
    move to England to find him and marry him. LOL

    I actually wound up meeting him about 7 years ago in NYC,
    and got to take a few pictures with him.

    Well, in today's NY Post, he looks AWFUL! Bloated, bald and raggy.

    The years have not been kind.

    Facing jail in US over drugs, Boy George flies back to Britain


    Boy George has arrived back in Britain, two days after his drugs arrest in New York.

    He refused to comment on the arrest as he arrived at Heathrow airport. " I am not speaking to anybody about it," the 44-year-old musician told reporters at Heathrow. "Don't ask me any questions because you aren't going to get any answers. It's nice to see you, though," he added, as airline staff escorted him out of the terminal building.

    Police arrested the British musician on Friday after he called them to report a burglary at his flat in New York's Little Italy. An NYPD spokesman said he was charged with possessing cocaine and falsely reporting an incident. He added that officers found cocaine in plain view.

    Boy George appeared in Manhattan Criminal Court dressed in tracksuit bottoms after a night in custody.

    The Manhattan district attorney's spokeswoman, Barbara Thompson, said the former Culture Club frontman was released on Saturday after being charged with drugs possession. He must return to New York for a nother hearing on 19 December when he could face up to 15 years in jail if found guilty.

    A lawyer for the musician has denied that drugs found in his New York apartment belonged to the star. "It was a small amount of drugs," Lou Freeman told the New York Post. "He doesn't know where it came from. He's had a lot of people in his house. A man who has something to hide does not call police."

    George's former agent Tony Denton echoed denials that the drug was owned by the musician. Mr Denton said: "He called the police himself. He actually thought somebody was breaking into the apartment. They turned up and searched the apartment and found traces of cocaine on the computer table, which George has said he was not taking and was nothing to do with him.
