Boy George made headlines in early 2020, and not in a way that he would have liked.
At the start of the new year, the former Culture Club frontman tweeted to his fans "leave your pronouns at the door," which eventually spiraled into a series of tweets where the singer referred to preferred pronouns as a "modern form of attention seeking," sparking outrage from the LGBTQ community.
In a brand new exclusive clip from Billboard and The Hollywood Reporter's Pride Summit & Pride Prom, George says that he feels his comments were taken out of context as a result of vigilant "policing" online. "There is a lot of bullying online, like 'You have to do this, you have to do that,'" he tells Billboard's Taylor Mims. "There is this sense that our lives are being run by the internet."
