Last year, Boy George opened up about the death threats he received during the height of the band’s success in the ’80s. Appearing on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories, the 55-year-old singer revealed he received threatening letters during his career in the 80s – to the point that he wore a bulletproof vest in fear for his life.
“It was Halloween, and people called up and said they were gonna shoot me,” he explained. “I was thinking, ‘I can’t cancel the gig so I’d better wear a bulletproof vest’.”
