Boy George appeared on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and spoke about his friendship with the late George Michael, according to The Huffington Post. When Andy Cohen asked him if he was aware of Michael's personal issues over the years, George admitted, "I read stuff in the papers. But I never really knew really what -- he really kept people out, he was quite private. In the early days, we were competition to each other. 'Both called George, both made soul music. So in the early days, we were really in competition. Then sort of later on, I started to really appreciate him as a musician -- you know, right around Faith. I started to really appreciate his talent."
Boy George, incidentally, is appearing on this season of The Celebrity Apprentice (and has yet to be fired!)
