No, it's not George Michael. It's Boy George. Two totally different people with totally different musical styles. And personalities. Wow.

George Alan O'Dowd was his real name, but he is still not the same person as George Michael.

You being on the internet, a quick search on youtube can give you all the answers you seek.

It's answers like that that negate the forum, if I cared not enough to even confuse the two in the first place...

Boy George is a UK musical pop artist that is homosexual and a very flamboyant personality. Very much like Ru Paul.


George Michael is also a UK musician, but his musical style varied from pop to rock n roll. But his style, while he was a homosexual, he carried himself in a way that gave off this sex appeal that both men and women found very attractive.

I hope this helps.

Nice overview, but I seriously doubt it helps that particular poster.

Anyways, he was an incredible talent. RIP George......
Not anyone who understands recent developments in the treatment of HIV. And by 'recent' I mean 'over the past two decades'.

Must be. After all, what are the odds that two different people both go by the name 'George'?

RIP George.

From the AIDS assumption to "All gays look alike", the ignorance is real.
