Boy George on his infamous feud with Madonna: "She hates me!"
During an appearance at the Nova's Fitzy & Wippa radio show, the 'Karma Chameleon' star said that he believes Madonna still "hates" him
Back in the 1980s, when Boy George was almost in the prime of his musical career he shared a rather strained relationship with the "Queen of Pop" - Madonna. And it looks like even now, after more than three decades, the two singers are not yet ready to put aside their differences and move on.
On Wednesday, during an appearance at the Nova's Fitzy & Wippa radio show, the 'Karma Chameleon' star said that he believes Madonna still "hates" him, reports the Daily Mail. "She hates me!" he bluntly spoke out, which resulted in the people at the radio studio erupting in laughter.
"I don't know [why], there's so many reasons," George added. "I don't know if she hates me anymore. I've always been a secret Madonna fan, really. I've got quite a few of her records. We just never ever kind of managed to meet, it's the weirdest thing."
For those who don't know, the famous feud between George and Madonna began in the 1980s, after the singer criticised Madonna in front of the press. "Comparing Madonna with Marilyn Monroe is like comparing Raquel Welch with the back of a bus," George famously said in 1986.
A few years later, George once again spoke about the 'Like a Virgin' singer in a British documentary (2006), where he called her "vile." He had said, "I just think she's a vile, hideous, horrible human being with no redeeming qualities. There's nothing nice about her. I've never heard anyone say anything nice about her at all."
"And anyone that's ever met her she's been vile to. Vile, full of herself - so unspiritual. How has this woman got away with it for so long?" he added.
However, in the recent years, George has tried to extend an olive branch to the 'Like a Prayer' songstress. Back in 2014, while he was in conversation with Attitude magazine, he reportedly said that he has "apologized a lot for the mean things [he has] said about her."
