Boy George has compared singing with Eminem to duetting with notorious former Cambodian leader Pol Pot.
He attacked Sir Elton John’s performance with the Slim Shady at 2002’s MTV Awards and made the strange comparison.
Pot’s murderous regime killed millions of people back in the 1970s and former Culture Club star Boy George was pulling no punches in an interview with The Times newspaper.
“It’s like me singing with Pol Pot,” said the 80s pop icon, who blames the white rapper for making homophobia acceptable on the streets.
“People will call you a fag or whatever occasionally, but it’s so much more prevalent now and he has to take some responsibility. He’s an ****hole and I think every gay person with a brain cell found it hideously offensive to see Elton performing with him.”
Rocket Man Elton has also picked fights with a clutch of celebrities recently, slamming Madonna for miming on stage and criticising George Michael’s private life.
