Do they really want to hurt him?
That's the question Boy George's managers are asking U.S. authorities now that the 47-year-old singer has been denied a visa to enter the U.S.
The Culture Club frontman, whose real name is George O'Dowd, had planned a U.S. tour this summer, including a free concert at the New York City Department of Sanitation's Family Day in August. He worked for the department in 2006 while performing court-ordered community service in a drug case.
His managers said in a statement Monday that O'Dowd has been denied a visa because he's awaiting trial in London.
The singer, whose hits include "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me" and "Karma Chameleon," has pleaded not guilty to imprisoning a man at his London home.
