Boy George & George Michael’s Feud

Back in the day, there were two guys named George who ruled over the '80s pop kingdom. They were Boy George and George Michael, of course. And when Boy George appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Tuesday, he reflected on his rivalry with the late pop singer.

How to Watch

Tune in to WWHL on Bravo Sunday through Thursday and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

"I think in the early days we were competition to each other. Both called George who both made soul music, so in the early days we were really in competition," he shared. "Then sort of later on I started to appreciate what he was as a musician, right around 'Faith,' I started to really appreciate his talent."

As for their beef, well, Boy George chalks it up to the time when they both rose to fame. "Yes we did [have a feud about him not wanting to come out]," the Culture Club frontman explained. "Not really a feud — I mean in the '80s everyone — Pete Burns, me — we all used to be really bitchy about each other. It was like the thing you did in the '80s."


George Michael, sadly, passed away last December. And while the two singers had kept in touch "on and off," Boy George said he wasn't fully aware of any of the rumored struggles George Michael was going through around the time of his death. "Not really. I mean I read stuff in the papers, obviously, but I never knew really. He really kind of kept people out," he said. "He was quite private, so I didn't really know much about what was going on."
