Boy George (Christmas Special Episode)

It's the Talk Art CHRISTMAS EPISODE!!!

We meet the incomparable Boy George: Grammy, Brit and Ivor Novello award-winning lead singer of Culture Club, songwriter, music producer, fashion designer, artist/painter and LGBTQ+ vanguard. All in all, he's a pop culture ICON!!! In this generous, candid, TWO HOUR feature-length special, you can immerse yourself in the creative and fascinating mind of BOY GEORGE!!!!

We explore George's lifetime making art (he has been painting since childhood) in tandem with singing, writing and producing music, collaborating with Sinead O’Connor, his love of Yoko Ono’s art and music, being summoned for lunch with Andy Warhol, his respect & friendships with Duggie Fields, Tracey Emin, John Maybury, Leigh Bowery, Keith Haring, Vivienne Westwood and Derek Jarman plus getting to meet legends Lou Reed, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Frank Sinatra!

Plus George reads our star signs and reveals that Russ & Rob share both their star sign and moon.. AND he sings for us his part from Band Aid’s ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas’!!!!! We discover details of his infinite hat collection but also the art he has collected including a number of artworks by David Bowie as well as Grayson Perry and Yoko Ono. 

George’s best selling book KARMA is out now. Told in his inimitable style, this definitive autobiography tells the story of the charismatic frontman - the drama, the music, his journey of addiction and recovery, surviving prison, meeting legends like David Bowie, Madonna, Diana Ross and Prince, and the highs and lows of a life lived in the spotlight and in the headlines.

In 2024, Boy George will make his return after 20 years to Broadway in the musical Moulin Rouge! The larger-than-life English superstar will take over the role of the boisterous, top-hatted impresario Harold Zidler in the Tony Award-winning musical for a limited run from Tuesday, February 6th to Sunday, May 12th 2024.
