Your thoughts

After resding this I forgot why I use to respect Boy George - now I remember.

It's actually kind of astounding that both Michael and Boy George *did* remain in the news 25 years later. Sure, sometimes both of them hit the news for dubious/circumspect reasons. But how many pop stars of 1984 still have celebrity in the 21st century.

Just like on so many other things, Falwell seems to have been wrong about the "fad" prediction.
