Boy George's 'different' relationships

Boy George's relationships aren't "claustrophobic" anymore.

The 'Karma Chameleon' hitmaker claims the way he has approached romance is different now because he's not as "obsessive".

He explained: "They're very different now when I have them. They're not claustrophobic. They're not needy. In fact sometimes I think something is wrong with me because I am not obsessive like I used to be.

"But I can't bear the thought of ever feeling like that again, even though I got great songs out of it. I just can't think of anything more hideous."

And the 54-year-old singer has admitted he rarely gets involved in relationships nowadays, which meant he has had to look for other forms of inspiration for his music.

He told DuJour magazine: "I don't really have relationships anymore, so I don't really have anything to write about in that department. I'm happy, and that's an interesting challenge.

"I'm not saying I lived my whole life being unhappy, but I always used to draw on drama to write. So my process has broadened out now. I read a lot, and I use a lot of the things I need. I try to find other ways of coming up with a subject."
