Boy George writes song for Kylie Minogue
One minute he's the Culture Club lead man, several decades later he is picking up trash after being charged with drug possession. Today, Boy George is writing songs for the pop princess herself, Kylie Minogue.
George is in Minogue's homeland of Australia for the gay Mardi Gras celebration. While there he has written two songs for the international pop goddess. One is about her relationship with Oliveri Martinez and the other is about survival.
Minogue left Martinez last month, but both swear they are still friends. George says the song was written before the split.
"I don't know that she will do the one about her and Olivier because I wrote it before they split - about all the stuff written about them in the papers," he said. "There is another one about survival, about what she has gone through, and she has vocaled (sic) that."
Minogue, of course, won her battle against cancer and returned to the stage late last year.
