By now, everyone has learned the fate of one Mr. George O'Dowd, aka Boy George.
Boy George, along with another British George, have had a really rough go of it, mostly at their own doing--or undoing.
To sum up, the story is that Georgie hooked up with a hustler (who had visited George once before), chained him up, and hit him with a chain before letting him go.
George admits to handcuffing him, but not to assaulting him. He says that he invited the infested hookerboy over because he was sure Hansel had hacked into George's laptop.
All of this happened about a year ago, when cocaine and booze were very much a part of George's life.
After a short trial, he was found guilty of imprisonment or kidnapping or some such shit. I had a feeling he would be found guilty, but I was hoping he would be redeemed somehow.
A recent doco about the Boy showed a tempermental, queer bitch, but a clean and sober one. No drinking, no drugs.
I want so much for him to recover from his demons and clean up his bullshit. Either jail is going to do that, or this will fuck him up forever. I'm hoping for the former.
