Boy George claims BRIT Awards were a drug fest

2014-02-21 10:29

Los Angeles - Boy George claims he heard people doing drugs at the BRIT Awards on Wednesday.

The 52-year-old singer - who has suffered with heroin addiction in the past - has implied the ceremony, held at London's O2 Arena, was a cocaine-fuelled event as he insists there was "chorus of snorting" from the toilets during the commercial breaks. 

Taking to his Twitter account on Thursday afternoon, he wrote: "As I took a leak at The Brit's I could hear a chorus of snorting! We have always called the Ad breaks 'the coke run'. It's still the case! (sic)".

Meanwhile, the Culture Club star caused a stir when he arrived at the glamorous event on Wednesday sporting a bloody bruise across his left eye, which looked like he had been involved in a punch-up.

However, George - whose real name is George Alan O'Dowd - admitted on the red carpet that it was actually make-up and he opted for the bizarre look as he is a "self-confessed fashion victim".

The eye make-up was branded "inappropriate" by critics, but George has since defended his theatrical taste.

He wrote: "Tasteless? Yet worth a whole lot of comment! ?? (sic)".
