Boy George, who last week in a lengthy interview with the Daily Mail told the tabloid “I hate talking about me” appeared on UK show This Morning to do just that, giving a short interview before a performance of “This Little Light of Mine”.
When asked if a new album is in the works, George responded, “That will come once I’ve gone out there and repaired my reputation…I’ve decided that yes, I’d like to stay out of trouble.”
Tomorrow he’s set to begin a concert tour around England (his first in ten years) called “Songs That Make You Dance and Cry”.
George told the Manchester Evening News: “I’m not coming out to do a nostalgia show. Nostalgia is a word which stinks of desperation. There are a lot of people who think I am desperate and they are very wrong. I feel this is a good time to do this. It’s not motivated by money. They’re small shows. We’ll barely cover costs. I haven’t made any money out of being a musician in – God knows – 20 years. I have to accept that in the past couple of years, all people have heard of me are bad things. So I’ve got to show them I’m not some seedy road-sweeper, that actually I am a proper artist and songwriter and I’ve got a great voice. And I think I forgot that as well. I got pre-occupied with other things and lost confidence in myself…I think at this stage I don’t really have a career I need to save.”
