BOY George has declined to collaborate with Sheeran in the future – saying he’d rather work with Missy Elliot than the Shape of You pop star.
The music icon, 60, admits he has his eye on one specific person in the music industry and it’s not the Grammy-winning artist, Ed.
Ed has an impressive track record of collaborating with some of the biggest music stars, from Elton John to Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift – but it doesn’t look like he’s going to include Boy George’s name on that list any time soon. . .
The Culture Club star has ruled out working with Ed, admitting he’s fed up with people suggesting they should work together.
Speaking exclusively to The Sun, he said: “I’ve got six songs this month, I always have all the new stuff coming out.”
Discussing who he would collaborate with and recommending Ed Sheeran, confused by the offer, Boy George replied, “Why does everyone always choose him? No.”
The flamboyant star has made it clear that he’s a big fan of US rapper Missy Elliot and would love to collaborate with the star.
When asked if he had any artists in mind that he would like to work with, he simply replied: “Miss Elliot.
“I think it’s always been hard to be interesting. I think pop music has become pretty dull, I have to say.
“My favorite kind of music is Missy Elliott, Bowie. It’s pop music. Things that have a bit of an edge over them. That’s what we were looking for.”
For 40 years, the star has been making waves with her iconic music with Culture Club.
The star recently discussed the upcoming movie about his life, titled Karma Chameleon.
He’s taking his career to the big screen in a Hollywood movie produced by Kevin King Templeton of Creed and his manager, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Paul Kemsley.
The film will also be directed by Sacha Gervasi – responsible for The Terminal and Hitchcock – who said: “In the London clubs of the 80s, George was unmissable and everyone knew him. will be a star long before the world has ever heard a note of the Cultural Club’s iconic songs.
“As you can imagine, George’s life story is wickedly interesting, but also profound and inspiring. I’m both honored and delighted to be the man to lead it to the big screen.”
