Boy George Nearly Killed

Boy George was nearly crushed to death this week while doing a sound check at the Bournemouth International Center in southern England. A wire holding a 62-pound mirrored disco ball snapped and plunged from the ceiling, supposedly just missing the flamboyant frontman for the Culture Club. “It would have been both ironic and glamorous to be finished off by a four-foot glitter ball,” a still-breathing Boy was quoted as saying by Reuters.
