Boy George has admitted he took quite a shine to Paul Weller when the pair's paths crossed in the 1980s.
Answering readers' questions in our new issue Q327, out now, the former Culture Club leader confessed he didn't think The Jam fancied him back, but he was a top chap.
"I fancied him though, oh my god he was so cute," declared George, who releases new album This Is What I Do on 28 October. "There was a fantastic interview with him in Q where at the time [singer and George's new romantic-era friend] Marilyn had implied they'd had a thing so they asked Paul and he said, If Marilyn said it happened, it must of done, which I think is the way any self respecting rock star should behave.
That made me love him, I thought "you're so cool!" That's what rock stars do, no one has to know the truth. I did fancy him but I don't think he fancied me."
Get Q327, now for the full Cash For Questions interview, including George's advice for Prince George and George Michael, his feelings towards Chameleons, how he quit drugs, his chances of becoming a reality TV judge, Band Aid and much more.
