George is one of the face’s of DIOR’s Spring 2017 campaign.

Dior Homme creative director Kris Van Assche has tapped a fresh, cross-generational cast of subversive faces to front the house’s latest advertising campaign – including Boy George, his childhood hero harking back to the era of the New Romantics movement.
Photographed by Willy Vanderperre in the studio and on the streets of Paris – the singer and DJ sports raw-edged tailoring accessorized with harnesses from the house’s spring 2017 collection customized with punk Toru Kamei souvenir pins.
“I really tried to translate what I think Dior Homme is right now. It’s about music, it’s about cinema, it’s about fashion…It’s about a certain memory I have of the Eighties that remains very much relevant for 2017,” said Van Assche. “Boy George, when I was a kid, was one of the first to have this message about difference being okay; he was such a major influence on my generation. That idea of freedom and being a rebel – which he still is – is really something that has stayed with me.”

George appeared as a contestant in the eighth season of The Celebrity Apprentice (USA).

Sixteen celebrities, including George, competed for their favorite charities when “The Celebrity Apprentice” moved to Los Angeles, where twice-elected California governor and international movie superstar Arnold Schwarzenegger reigned over the Boardroom.

George did extremely well, both in the boardroom and in the tasks. So much so that he made the final, where just George and Matt Iseman were left to compete for the $250,000 prize for there chosen charities.

Unfortunately, George was pipped to the post by Matt when Schwarzenegger chose him over George to be the Celebrity Apprentice winner 2017.

Tough Love & Roger ‘S-Man’ Sanchez combine with Boy George to bring a deep and rolling anthemic record sure to be a club hit!

The track is released in November in 2 different formats:

‘Hold On’ original mix by Tough Love & Roger ‘S-Man’ Sanchez released 4th November on Get Twisted Records


The dub mix of ‘Hold On’ is released on S Man’s ‘Runnin’ EP

Sanchez says:
“Hold On came about as a collaboration between myself & Boy George where I focused on massive beats and the dirtiest bass line I could think on at the moment. This dub mix is sparse, stripped back and devastatingly effective on the dance floor. Boy George did an amazing job on the vocals, and reminds me a bit of Robert Owens in delivery.”

George is to journey back to his formative years for a BBC Two documentary this October, as the centrepiece of BBC Music’s My Generation season looking at the 1970s.

On BBC Two Boy George’s 1970s: Save Me from Suburbia looks back to September 1982 when an unknown George appeared on the BBC’s Top of the Pops with Culture Club, singing Do You Really Want to Hurt Me?.

In this film George will recall, revisit and assess how the 1970s moulded the person and artist he has become. This is his musical, social and sexual coming of age, when he discovered the power of his own sexuality before setting about turning that persona into a popstar. Set against a backdrop of social discord, disenfranchisement & sexual repression – the seventies was also conversely the decade that revelled in colour and creative chaos giving the world glam rock, disco & punk… and the young George O’Dowd was at the birth of them all. The documentary includes contributions from contemporaries like Martin Degville (Sigue Sigue Sputnik), Andy Polaris (Animal Nightlife), DJ Princess Julia and pop star Marilyn this is, as George said “the last ever bonkers decade”, and it totally and completely shaped him.

George says: “I think of the ‘70s as being this glorious decade where I discovered who I was and discovered all these amazing things… punk rock, electro music, fashion, all of that. And yeah of course there was that dark side to the ’70s, the rubbish, the strikes, the poverty and I’d get chased and confronted for the way I looked. But I was a teenager. I didn’t have any time for misery I was just having a great time with my friends. My ‘70s were all about Bowie, Bolan, dressing up and going out, I think of it as the last bonkers decade, and I loved every second.”

George recorded a duet with Irish singer-songwriter Brian Kennedy.

They went into the studio back in 2014 and so far the track has never seen the light of day. But, Kennedy has released an Essential Collection and has decided to include the recording.

The song ‘Christopher Street’ is a Brian Kennedy classic, and George lends his voice to the tune to create a beautiful, emotionally-charged duet.
