In a lengthy new interview, Boy George discusses his first new album in 19 years, This Is What I Do.

Plus, he clears up his thoughts on Madonna and his experience of being in Russia.

In a lengthy new interview with HuffPo, Boy George talks extensively about his new album, Madonna, and even visiting Russia.

This Is What I Do is Boy George’s first new album in 19 years. He shares the inspiration for its lead single, Live Your Life.

“It’s more to do with the fact that a relative of mine’s son came out and the conversation around that was just bonkers to me. It was like, are we still having this fucking conversation?”

He expands that the meaning of the song is,

“So Live Your Life is about racial hatred, queer hatred, it’s about all of it. It’s about whatever I am, I am going to be it. I’m going own it. You can only be who you are, whatever you are.”

Long rumoured to having a hate on for Madonna, Boy George took this opportunity to clear that up,

“I don’t hate Madonna! That’s such rubbish. I mean I’ve said awful things about Madonna and I’m not proud of that at all — I’m really not proud of that because I didn’t know her. And like everyone, I’ve always secretly kind of been into her.”

He also had some choice words for the current state of Russia towards the LGBT community,

I’ve been there many times -– I’ve walked across Red Square dressed as Leigh Bowery and no one bothered me! I think the bottom line in places like Russia is very simple: they cannot deal with the politicization of gay culture.

Boy George’s latest album is now available. Listen to the album’s lead single, Live Your Life, below.
