Boy George is still disgusted over fellow gay singer SIR Elton John's decision to duet with controversial rapper Eminem at the 2002 MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS.

Eminem has come under fire from many gay rights groups over the homophobic lyrics on his hit albums.

George is so disgusted with Eminem, he places the rapper on the same level as late Cambodian dictator POL POT, who was responsible for up to 1 million deaths during the 1970s under his regime.

George, whose real name is GEORGE O'DOWD, scathes, "It's like me singing with Pol Pot.

"People will call you a fag or whatever occasionally, but it's so much prevalent now and Eminem has to take some responsibility.

"He's an a*shole and I think every gay person with a brain cell found it hideously offensive to see Elton performing with him."
