Eighties pop sensation Boy George has become a hit with the over-50's - insisting he is the new Barry Manilow.
The former hellraiser, who has battled severe drug addictions, made a name for himself as the make-up wearing, outspoken frontman of hit band Culture Club.
But the star, real name George O'Dowd, insists his fanbase has changed - confessing his latest U.K. tour has attracted a host of older ladies.
He says, "When I started this tour, I thought, 'Who is going to want come and see me after all this time'. But when you get to Norwich and Newcastle, I mean, all these weird people come along to see you, all these old ladies who dance and sing along to Karma Chameleon and shout, 'I f**ing love you George'... they were all my mum's age; it was really sweet and really funny. I've become Barry Manilow!"

I agree with Max. Barry is in a magnitude all by himself. He IS the best performer, entertainer, musician, arranger, producer and composer ever. For Boy George to liken himself to Barry---well, lets just say he's in la la land...............

I'm afraid ol' George is like the person going to his high school reunion and wondering why all those old people showed up. George, my friend, you are sixty-two years old! Hate to break it to you buddy, but those "old ladies" in the audience are your age not your mum's.As for being the new Barry Manilow. . .oh honey. . .there is only one Barry. Sweetie, with all due respect, it isn't you.
