Just the other day I got the “Alien Video” (with the one-eyed thing singing “I will survive”) in my mailbox. After having seen that, I nearly snorted coffee down my shorts when I read this:
LONDON–Boy George, the British pop singer, had a close brush with death when a 28-kilo glitter ball fell from the ceiling of a concert venue he was working in.
Boy George is the flamboyant frontman of the British band Culture Club.
Relating the story to the British newspaper, The Sun, Boy George says, “It would have been both ironic and glamorous to be finished off by a four-foot glitter ball.”
The incident occurred while Boy George was doing a sound check for a concert at the Bournemouth International Centre in southern England.
