Boy George

When Honey G popped onto the scene we *hoped* she'd be a one hit wonder on the show and might get booted off after the audition phase of the show.

But as she remains in the live finals, fans and celebrities alike have been slamming the rapper, saying that she doesn't deserve to go any futher.

And the latest star to bash her is Boy George.

Georgie appeared on Good Morning Britain and told Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid that Honey G is "ridiculous."

"I think she would be a great BGT contestant but I think for a singing show it's ridiculous.

"The fact Freddy got sent home, it's a joke."

Freddy Parker found himself booted off the show last weekend after the competition went to deadlock and Freddy received the least number of public votes.


She only made her debut this weekend, but new judge to The Voice UK, Paloma Faith has already threatened to leave the show. 

She told The Sun that if she gets bad reviews on social media she's going to throw in the towel… But doesn't everything kinda get a bad review online?

"I haven't experienced this season yet so I don't know if I will want to do next year's series," she admitted.

"If every day from the first show is a barrage of abuse on social media and in letter form then of course I'm not going to do it."

But, she's willing to hold out to see how it all goes. 

"Boy George and I haven't experienced it yet so there's a sceptical feeling. We're happy within us but we just hope that translates into a public reaction."



Rumour has been abound for weeks that relations between Caitlyn Jenner and her children, step-children and ex-wife Kris are becoming increasingly strained. 

And certainly eyebrows have now been raised yet again – because none of Cait's family turned up to her renaming ceremony.

The milestone event, segments of which were shown in the US last night during E!'s I Am Cait finale, was attended by the former Olympian's gaggle of transgender friends, as well as pop-star Boy George.

During the episode, she can be seen telling the close-knit congregation: "I feel at home and I have a family," although significantly none of her blood relations could make it.

Kendall, 19, and Kylie Jenner, 18, as well as Brody Jenner, a 32-year-old son from Caitlyn's second marriage were all noticeably absent. And none of her stepchildren – Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob – attended either. 

Despite the absence of the Kardashian-Jenner crew, there were still several high-profile names there to support her – as well as Boy George, Caitlyn's rumoured love interest, Candis Cayne, was also a guest.

Boy George recently brought Ms Jenner on stage during a performance, and he was happy to lend his vocal talents to renaming ceremony, which furthermore consisted of poems, readings and music from a gospel choir. 

Minister Allyson Dylan Robinson opened the service by discussing the power of names before the reality star revealed she wanted to be known as Caitlyn Marie Jenner.

Afterwards the 65-year-old told the gathering: "It has been an amazing journey, and I'm seeing all of it come true. I'm in a great place in life and, for the first time, I feel like I fit in some place.

"Being my authentic self. Thank you."


The Voice UK returns for a fifth season early next year, but one notable face will be missing from the judging panel… Welsh music legend Tom Jones.

Tom took to Facebook earlier this month to express his disappointment after he was abruptly axed from the show in favour of Boy George, something the BBC informed him of just 24 hours before the new line-up went public.

While the broadcasting company first defended their decision, saying "no role was ever promised," one BBC director has spoken out to apologise to the singer.

"I've got huge respect for Tom and I'm truly sorry he's upset, because I am a big fan of his," BBC's director of television Danny Cohen said. "I think he's a gentleman, I think he's an extraordinary figure in music and you'll have seen the huge respect that all of the artists have had for him on The Voice throughout."

Danny added that he hoped Tom would be returning for a new project with the BBC "very soon."

In his original statement on Facebook, Tom accused BBC execs of "sub-standard behaviour" for not informing him of the line-up changes well ahead of time. 

"In good faith, as part of the team, I’d put the time in my schedule to be involved in Series 5, as I’ve done so for the last 4 years. I’ve supported the show and the BBC since the beginning. I was told yesterday, with no consultation or conversation of any kind, that I would not be returning," he explained.

"Having been through plenty of transformations throughout the years, I support and admire creative change. But being informed, as a matter of duty and respect, is an important part of creative relationships. This sub-standard behaviour from the executives is very disappointing."

Former coaches will.i.am and Ricky Wilson will return to the line-up this year, with Paloma Faith and Boy George taking over from Rita Ora and Tom.


Tom Jones is not happy with BBC bosses following the announcement that he will be leaving The Voice UK.

According to a post on the legendary singers Facebook page, he received “no consultation or conversation of any kind” before they announced he was axed from the show.

He claims those involved with the show only provided him with a day’s warning before he was cut as a judge on the talent competition.

Yesterday a new line-up of judges was announced for the show that included Paloma Faith and Boy George, 54.

BBC bosses thanked Tom for his work on The Voice and it seemed as though  the decision had been made with both parties having discussed the matter.

Just hours later, Sir Tom (he received a knighthood in 2006) took to social media to set the record straight. He wrote:

“I’ve supported the show and the BBC since the beginning. I was told yesterday, with no consultation or conversation of any knd, that I would not be returning.”

He went on to say that while he appreciates changes often have to happen in the creative  world, he also believes “being informed, as a matter of duty and respect, is an important part of creative relationships.”

He called the way in which bosses handled the show “sub-standard behaviour” and “very disappointing.”

Fans have no reacted well to the news, which comes as the Daily Mail reports an insider as saying that Tom had asked for a significant increase in his salary to be included in this year’s contract. Apparently it was something to the tune of €700,000.


A spokesperson for the show has reportedly pointed out that Tom was not actually fired, as judges are given contracts which only last one year. His was simply not renewed.

Boy George stepped out on the red carpet at the BRIT Awards sporting what looked like bruises and blood above his left eye.

However, while he may have looked like he had been in a fight, the Karma Chameleon singer had actually put on the strange make-up himself. Explaining the look to Vogue magazine, the 54-year-old said, “I’m a fashion victim”.

The British singer shared a picture on Twitter of him heading to the awards ceremony and captioned it, “Rockin’,” clearly implying that he was going for the rocker look.

Last year, the Do You Really Want  to Hurt Me hitmaker had a bit of a spat with One Direction member Liam Payne after he accused Liam of snubbing his 13-year-old niece. He tweeted: “Top marks to Harry Styles for stopping for a picture with my niece and Bo**ox’s to Liam and the disrespectful w**ker of a minder!”

However, Liam did not let it go without defending himself and tweeted back: “@BoyGeorge now now boy lets not tell porkies. Firstly thanks for getting my name wrong three times, then asking me where is liam?…awkward. Then when you finally got it right saying you wanted Niall instead.”

Thankfully the night went off without any problems between the pair and neither ended up with real bruises.
