The indignity! Boy George to pick up trash

Boy_george_so_boodifulNEW YORK (AP) - Boy George will perform his court-ordered community service by picking up trash on city streets in the August heat, a sanitation spokesman said.
The one-time Culture Club singer will be issued a shovel, broom, plastic bags and gloves when he reports Aug. 14 for five days of work.

Born George O'Dowd, the 45-year-old singer has struggled with drug problems for years. He was arrested after calling in a phony burglary report and police found cocaine instead.
He could be assigned to pick up streets in Chinatown, Little Italy, Nolita or parts of the Lower East Side.
O'Dowd became an '80s icon with his androgynous appearance and vocals on hits such as "Karma Chameleon" and "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me?" A Manhattan judge threatened the singer with jail time if he failed to complete his five days of community service before Aug. 28.
