Do U Really Want To Imprison Me?



Boy_george_heatherette Like we didn't see this coming: A jury in London today convicted pop singer Boy George of falsely imprisoning a male escort.

According to the Associated Press, Boy George, who was tried under his real name George O'Dowd, admitted he handcuffed 29-year-old Audun Carlsen, who also claimed the former Culture Club singer of swinging a metal chain at him as he ran from George's apartment after a nude photo shoot. (Insert your own punchline here. I'm coming up empty.)

Our favorite cross-dressing '80s hero was released on bail following the jury's decision, but is due to be sentenced Jan. 16. And unlike his previous brushes with the law, Boy George likely could spend time in the clink this time around.

"This is a case where custody is the more likely option," judge David Radford told the AP.
