- fun faith fact! Boy George may be one of the most interesting looking Buddhists of all-time
When the British band Culture Club hit the new wave scene, they soon were a success both in their homeland and across the pond. Its gender-bending lead singer, Boy George, was among the most recognizable faces of the 1980s with his elaborate eye make-up and long hair laced with colorful ribbons. At the age of 25, he told People magazine that he'd begun Buddhist chanting to find comfort in his highly publicized run-ins with the law. Per comments on his Twitter account, the singer remains a devoted Buddhist.
