Nije mnogo onih Pop ikona koje Vam obeleže dobar period života, u slučaju sa nekim čije je ime Boy George , slobodno mogu reći da je tu u mom životu nekih 28 godina. Tih davnih osamdesetih on i Madona su bili pojave koje su obeležile kako mene  tako i moje odrastanje. Drugačiji, šokantni,i pre svega neobično stilizovani njih dvoje su bili zvezde mog sveta, i postera na zidovima moje mladalačke sobe. Zahvaljujem Vass-u koji mi je omogućio da stupim u kontakt sa George-om i dobijem ove odgovore koji su pred vama!

Koliko ti nedostaje i čega se često setiš iz BLITZ KIDS perioda?
Imam lepe uspomene iz tog perioda, bilo je jako uzbudljivo i nešto novo za sve nas. Pokušavam da se previše ne osvrćem u životu, već da gledam samo napred.
Kada Pogledaš u nazad na CULTURE CLUB danas posle 30 godina šta vidiš a šta ne bi voleo da vidiš?
Izuzetno sam ponosan na muziku koju smo stvarali i pritom smo veoma zahvalni što i dalje zauzimamo posebno mesto u srcima mnogih ljudi. U tom vremenskom periodu, smatram da niko od nas zapravo nije imao šansu da istinski uživa u svemu tome, što je potpuno suludo jer to bio jedan neverovatan period i sve se dešavalo jako brzo, ali sa godinama sam imao dovoljno vremena da razmislim o svemu tome i da naučim da uživam još više u našem uspehu.
Moda je uvek bila deo tebe a ti decenijama deo nje, šta te najviše veseli u modi?
Volim individualnost koju moda omogućava onom koji je nosi. Bilo da je komad nekog dizajnera ili high street fashion, dobro uklopljena, svaka odevna kombinacija može da vas istakne kao i da pokaže drugima poruku koju želite da pošaljete.

Zašto nikada nisi pokrenuo svoj modni brend s obzirom na tvoj specifičan i prepoznatljiv stil?
Haha, ja zapravo imam svoju etiketu. Imam je dugi niz godina. Većina moje modne linije je fokusirana na sopstvenu online prodavnicu već nekoliko godina, ali sam radio i dosta modnih revija sa svojim brendom u NYu, Parizu, Milanu i kod kuće u Londonu. Label se zove B-Rude http://www.b-rudeuk.com , mada možda promenim nešto kako bi osvežio neke stvari... ko zna?
Još devedesetih si bio među prvim dj-evima,šta je presudilo da staneš tada za gramofone?
Zapravo sa dj-ingom sam ponovo počeo još tokom kasnih 70-ih kada sam napravio pauzu jer je Culture Clubu u jednom momentu prestao sa radom. Vratio sam se ponovo djingu, mada nikada nisam prestao da kupujem ploče i da ih vrtim, jer sa Culture Clubom sam poprilično završio. Veoma sam srećan što sam bio u mogućnosti da se bavim dvema najvećim strastima u životu , pevanjem i djisanjem, tokom karijere.
Da li si ikada probao da pevaš dok si za dj pultom?
Da, ali to nije ono što radim kao DJ. Moje pevanje i DJing su dve odvojene strasti kada nastupam. Dakle, izvinjavam se što ću razočarati one koji dolaze da  me vide kao  dj-a a pritome očekuju live show kako pevam.
Volim tvoje saradnje sa Dark Globe,Faithless, Hi Gate ali posebno mi se sviđa poslednja sa Mark Ronson-om,
"Somebody to love me" je pravi hit.
Hvala puno.

Slušam tvoj novi album "Ordinary Alien" Turn 2 Dust,Time Machine,Brand New,If I Were You... su negde moji favoriti, i bez obzira što je album elektronski,dance nekako provejava neka tuga kroz njega.Zbog čega?
Album sadrži kolekciju pesama koje su sve pisane s živim elementima za njih, ali onda im je data jedan plesni touch. Ordinary Alien u celini je plesno fokusiran album, ali sam želeo da neke pesme imaju i dubinu kako ne bi bile samo dobre klubske numere. Velik deo materijala na albumu je napisan pre nekoliko godina i tek sada mu je dat taj moderan momenat.
Zašto je Boy George ORDINARY a zbog čega ALIEN danas 2011?
Nekima sam oduvek bio nešto poput vanzemaljca, ali jednom kada me upoznate shvatite da sam obična osoba, jedan od onih koje možete da povedete kući i upoznate ga sa vašom majkom.
Ponovo si bio u Srbiju, koliko te to raduje i šta je ono što te uvek vraća nama?
Bio sam ponovo jer sam trenutno na dj turneji kako bi po klubovima promovisao svoj novi album. Krajem prošle godine imao sam dosta live nastupa, tako da je bilo teško dobiti mnogo DJ nastupa , kojima se inače jako radujem jer sam ponovo na putu i radim kao DJ. Volim da istražujem druge narode, kulture, hranu i umetnike takođe.
Postoji li mogućnost da ponovo čujemo Culture Club , recimo na EXIT festivalu?
Culture Club će biti ponovo okupljen, tako da ćete nas definitivno videti uživo zajedno. Što se tiče vremena i mesta, još uvek smo u fazi dogovora oko datuma tako da je prerano bilo da šta sada govorim o tome.
Da li si sretan,voljen ovih dana?
Da i da. Jako sam srećan u životu i ljudima kojima sam okružen.

ON ENGLISH:

How much do you miss the BLITZ KIDS period and what comes to your mind when thinking about it?
I have fond memories of that time, it was all very exciting and new for all of us. I try not to look back too much in life, only forward.
When you look back to CULTURE CLUB today, after 30 years, what do you see, and what wouldn't you like to see?
I am extremely proud of the music we put and very grateful that we still hold a place in so many people’s hearts. At the time I don’t think any of us really had a chance to enjoy it to its fullest because it was such a crazy period and all happening so very quickly, but with age I’ve had a chance to reflect on it and learn to enjoy our success more.
Fashion has always been a part of you, and you have been a staple of the fashion scene for decades. What do you enjoy it?
I love the individuality that fashion enables the wearer. Whether its designer or high street, done well you can make any outfit stand out as a statement for who you are.
Considering your specific and recognizable personal style, how come you haven't started your own fashion line?
Haha, I actually do have my own label. I‘ve had it for a good many years now. I focus a lot of the range via the online store but over the years I’ve done catwalks with the label in New York, Paris, Milan and back home in London. The label is called R-Rude, though I may change this in the future to freshen things up..who knows?
You were one of the first DJs back in the nineties, what was the decision making factor for that?
Well I actually started DJing back in the late 70s but had to take a break once Culture Club took off. I returned back to DJing, though never stopped buying records and spinning, once life in Culture Club was pretty much over. I am very lucky that I have been able to do my two passions in life, singing and DJing, throughout my career
Have you ever tried singing while working as a DJ?
Yes, but it’s not what I do as DJ. My singing and DJing are two separate passions when performing. So sorry to disappoint those that come to see me dj and are expecting a live show of singing.
I like your collaborations with Dark Globe, Faithless, Hi Gate, especially the last one with Mark Ronson, "Somebody to love me" is a huge hit.
Thank you very much.
I' ve been listening to your new album "Ordinary Alien", and Turn 2 Dust, Time Machine, Brand New, If I Were You... are my favourites. It has that electronic, dance sound, but one can feel some sadness behind all the songs. Why is that?
The album contains a collection of songs that were all written with a live element to them but then given a dancey edge. Ordinary Alien as a whole is a dance focused album but I wanted the songs to have some depth to them beyond just being great club tracks. Much of the material on the album was written years ago and just been given a modern edge to them.
Why is Boy George ORDINARY and why ALIEN today in 2011?
I think to some I’ve always been something of an alien but once you get to know me I’m just an ordinary person, the sort you can bring home to meet your mum.
You was in Serbia again. How much do you like coming here, and what is it that brings you back to us again?
I was back for a show as I’m currently on a tour djing in various clubs promoting my new album. The end of last year so me on a live show so it was difficult to get many dj gigs in, which is why I am really looking forward to getting back on the road and djing again. I love getting to explore other peoples cultures, foods and artists too.
Is there a chance of us listening to Culture Club live again, at Exit festival, for example?
Culture Club will be getting back together so you will definitely hear us live again. As for where and when, we are still in the initial talking stages so it is far too early to say anything else right now.
Are you happy and loved?
Yes and Yes. I’m very happy in my life and with those who are around me.
