'Boy George a scrubber!'
HUMILIATED Boy George was yesterday ordered to sweep the streets and collect rubbish by a court — as he admitted he had “... always been a scrubber”. The tough community service order was imposed after the singer wasted police time. George, 45, had suggested he could make amends by putting on a fashion and make-up workshop — or being a disc jockey at an Aids benefit gig. But Judge Anthony Ferrar ridiculed his propsals and assigned him to New York’s sanitation department. George, real name George O’Dowd, must spend five days in August doing the dirty work — or face jail. Sanitation spokesman Keith Mellis said: “He’ll be one of us.” Before hearing what his community service would be, a pale George joked: “I don’t know what it will be, but I’ve always been a scrubber.”
