And Finally

Boy George soaks chatty fan

I’ve written variously about how I’d like it very much if everyone would stop talking all the way through gigs, but I’m in two minds about Boy George’s reaction to a woman he caught talking at a recent charity gig in aid of The Meningitis Trust.

According to The Sun, a woman in the front row of the show at the Embassy Club in Mayfair was left soaked and sobbing when George threw a glass of water over her, shouting: “Why don’t you shut the fuck up, you rude cunt!” A “club source” told the tabloid that people had started talking amongst themselves at the show because the singer was a bit rubbish: “He wasn’t playing his hits and people were losing interest. It was a shocking lapse of judgment because people had paid to support the Trust”.

Like I say, I’m in two minds about this incident. Still, as a general rule of thumb, if a band is playing, shut the fuck up you rude cunts.
