Boy George, Axl Rose in trouble again



PROVO, Utah -- The state of Utah is holding elections today, as I continue my visit to the land of mountains and Mormons, so on this day state law mandates no drinking of alcohol! (Bars, already restricted to members only, can't open until the polls close.) Two hooligans from the 80s (three if you include me) who could never survive Election Day in Utah just made the news again: Boy George and Axl Rose.

Boy George (click for podcast) was threatened with a spell in prison on Monday if he didn't complete his community service requirement stemming from falsely reporting a burglary (thus avoiding drug possession charges.) According to reports, Boy doesn't want to rake leaves in a New York city park -- it's too humiliating. (Pausing for obligatory laugh.) Personally, I'm hoping he blows off the leaves. It never gets old blogging about George. I'm already working on a list of "Top 5 things Boy George needs to avoid saying while incarcerated."

Meanwhile, Axl Rose  (click for podcast) was arrested in Stockholm, Sweden, earlier today for damaging a hotel room and roughing up a security guard. (I'm not sure that's even a crime anymore back in the States). Media reports from overseas say the Guns N' Roses botox boy was too drunk to answer questions so he's passing the hours in a cell until he's sober enough to straighten things out. A little hair of the dog, Axl. That'll do the trick.

Is it just me or have these two 80s celebs erased whatever accomplishments they had with their ongoing criminal behavior?
