I guess Boy George still knows how to scandalize!
While taping The Voice UK, the new judge and 'Karma Chameleon' singer made a claim so outrageous that production needed to quickly halt filming.
He boldly claimed that he slept with the legendary Prince in a throwaway comment, but no one is letting him get off the hook.
Prince fans everywhere probably just reacted like:
The shocking admission was part of an exchange with fellow judge Paloma Faith. While the whole panel discussed their biggest collaborations, Boy George tried to trump everyone by saying he's worked with soul legends Luther Vandross and Smokey Robinson.
That's when Paloma threw down:
Well OK, if we’re throwing big soul names out there I’ve performed with Prince.
Not to be upstaged, Boy George took his chance to make this jaw-dropping revelation.
Forget that, darling, I’ve slept with Prince.
With that one declaration, the entire crowd burst into raucous applause, and the show got so out of hand that production had to be brought to a temporary halt. A member of the production team told The Sun:
We just couldn’t believe what he had come out with — and the guys in the gallery were beside themselves.
At that point, with crowd in an uncontrollable frenzy, Boy George began to backtrack, saying that he really just had a Prince poster on his wall. I'm not sure how he managed to confuse room decor with the bedroom rodeo, but I'm hoping we haven't heard the last of this potential secret.
