Boy George has lost his libido during the U.K.’s Covid-19 lockdown as staying at home has left him with “zero” sex drive.
The flamboyant British star was famous for his wild living while fronting Culture Club in the 1980s, but is enjoying a more sedate time at home in London during the pandemic.
In an interview with Australian radio station Triple M’s “Moonman In The Morning Catch Up” on Friday, the 58-year-old pop star confessed he has “zero urge” to have sex, despite being cooped up at home.
“It’s funny actually, because I was talking to a friend of mine earlier, and I was saying, ‘I have zero urge. I have got zero urge,’ ” he said. “I don’t know what it is, but I’ve just gone into this very laidback (mode).”
However, he wouldn’t rule out having sex altogether, adding, “I’m sure if it fell on my lap, I probably would.”
Referencing his famous quote about preferring a cup of tea to sex, he continued, “You know, if something fell into my lap, I’m sure I’d be like, ‘Well, you’re here now. I might as well make a cup of tea.’ “
The star went on to blame the hot weather in London for his loss of libido.
“I suppose in the current climate, the idea of it. You know, it’s very hot in London as well…Can’t be bothered,” he explained.
Show hosts Lawrence Mooney, Jess Eva, and Chris Page then expressed surprise George’s sex drive has “died” – but the “Karma Chameleon” hitmaker insisted it is merely resting.
“I never said it died. I just said it’s laying dormant, like a dragon,” George laughed.
