Boy George Reveals The Surprising Thing That People Always Ask Of Him

There's never a shortage of questions to ask Boy George, but there is one gay-related inquiry that the music icon hears all the time.

During a conversation with HuffPost Live's Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani on Wednesday, Boy George was asked if people ever use the occasion of meeting him to come out of the closet, as Melissa Etheridge has said is often the case in her life. That specifically doesn't happen a lot, he said, but he did share what he hears much more often.

"People always say to me, 'Meet my friend, do you think he's gay?' I get that a lot," he said.

But if you ever get the chance to pose that question to Boy George, don't get your hopes too high -- he added that his gaydar leaves something to be desired, except when somebody is obviously "a mincing fairy."
