Boy George shows off his weight loss in London: amazing & inspirational?

Oooh! Boy George has lost some weight, hasn’t he? I didn’t even recognize him! These are some new pics of Boy George at the 2013 WhatsOnStage.com Awards last night in London. Just for a point of reference, this is what Boy George looked like last May:

See? I think he’s like me – when I gain and lose weight, you can see it immediately in my face. Boy George looks somewhat deflated, but… it’s good. There’s no loose skin or anything, everything looks tight and he looks healthy (as in, not emaciated). He’s 51 years old, and the weight loss makes him look younger, I think. Plus, I think he’s being helped along by some really great makeup. There are a lot of Hollywood women who could use Boy George’s eye makeup talents.

After Boy George tweeted a photo of his new look yesterday, he must have gotten a lot of comments about his new look, because he later tweeted “My Secret!” and linked to Freer Nutrition. I glanced through the website, and the gist seems to be “eating healthy, not starving yourself, lots of fruits and vegetables, lots of raw foods and lots of vegetarian stuff.” I believe Boy George IS a vegetarian and has been for a while, so that makes sense. Good work, Boy George!!

    He’s always been a bigger guy-so honestly, this doesn’t quite look like him, and he appears kind of unwell.

  2. aims says:

    He looks amazing. His eyebrows are flawless.

  3. Abra says:

    He really knows how to make his eyes pop!

  4. Feebee says:

    Bloody hell, he’s so pretty.

    I hope his physical transformation has helped him mentally/emotionally too.

    • Joan says:

      Absolutely agree. He is a great looking guy, thin or thick. It’s wonderful to see him looking so well.
      It doesn’t look to me like he is sick from a disease or addiction. I truly hope that he has controlled his past demons for good.

      Rock on, Boy. Forever a fan!

  5. soxfan says:

    Michael K of Dlisted is going to simply adore the eyebrows…

  6. Skaffa_meid says:

    SO now that we finaaly found the frontman of the Culture club, can we PLSSSSS hear some great music, as back in the days…?Thnk you!

  7. Barb says:

    Haven’t heard of any kind of illness… so I decided to be happy for him! :)
    He looks amazing! Well done, George! :D

  8. yael says:

    i wish i could do my eyebrows as well as him.

  9. marie says:

    good work on the weight loss, but umm-didn’t he got to jail on assualt charges? sorry but I see nothing inspirational about him..

  10. FassDaActor says:

    Wow…that’s great. He still has the most beautiful eyes.

  11. some bitch says:

    Neatest eyebrows ever. I could never get mine to look this nice. Looks like he had a steady weight loss and he looks good, so props to him!

  12. ZigZagZoey says:

    UGLIEST hat I have ever seen. WTF, I hate hats.

  13. Isa says:

    I like Boy George, and I don’t wish to be negative, but I really really hope that this weight loss doesn’t have anything to do with drugs. He does have a history of addiction, but he has seemed so much more grounded in recent years. Much happier too. I hope he is still in that happy, healthy place.

  14. Nev says:

    He has always had the most beautiful eyes!!! Memories of grade school and loving him and Culture Club!!! One of the most beautiful male voices I think!!

    • jwoolman says:

      I remember liking his voice when Culture Club was on the radio. I think he looked more like he does now back then, so he looks okay to me. If he’s really eating veggie, that can take the weight off easily without pain if you go heavy on fruits and vegetables, beans with some seeds and nuts rather than overboard on oils and dairy – look at the Eat to Live series by Fuhrman, his patients were dealing with some serious health problems but were able to lose weight safely that way and get a lot healthier in the process.

  15. Madriani's Girl says:

    I would kill to have him teach me how to do eye makeup.

  16. Jane says:

    This must feel strange and new for him.

  17. Elceibeno says:

    Oh yeah he looks real good. Please!!!!!!!!!!
    He looks awful. Emaciated and grotesque is what he looks. That make up hideous. A queen will always be a queen.

    • Anastasia says:

      Are you saying that “queens” never look good? First of all, what do you mean by “queen?” Second of all, I know a lot of what I think you are referring to as “queens”, and they are gorgeous. And I think he looks great, I love his make-up and I think his eyes are beautiful.

  18. Agnes says:

    He looks good. I wouldn’t have recognized him, though.

  19. K-rock says:

    I wish I could do my eyes like him! Those brows are perfection!

  20. truthful says:

    he looks good and seems to be eating a clean diet.

  21. Dee says:

    I honestly thought, no insult intended towards her, that the main header pic was Nicole Richie with fake facial hair. It looked like some weird fashion event. Then I actually read the heading…

  22. vixo says:

    He’s looking good, I can only hope he’s not ill and just went on a diet. He always had amazing makeup skills.

  23. Lilo says:

    Why is it that everybody is so happy and so proud when someone looses weight? Like that’s some kind of heroic act and lifetime achievement…I think it’s sad and dangerous to impart such importance on some pounds.

  24. I Choose Me says:

    He looks great. He has such lovely eyes and a great jawline. But how on earth is he fifty? His skin looks like that of a man at least two decades younger.

  25. Happy21 says:

    He is such a pretty man :) He looks amazing!

  26. RHONYC says:

    large or small he will forever be a beauty, just hope he stays healthy.

    i’ll still tumble 4 ya, Boy! :mrgreen:

  27. KellyinSeattle says:

    I LOVE Boy George!! And I like his black and white polka dot hat….

  28. Michele says:

    Wow, he did lose alot of weight. He looks great. Good for him.

  29. Lisa Teasdale says:

    Wow , I never realized how gorgeous actually is—you’re hot sweetie and those eyes are stunning you’re looking good !

  30. Leelee says:

    I think he looks AWESOME….I still LOVE listening to his music today. And like everyone else, GOD his eyes, and sexy jaw bone!!! :) :) <3 <3

  31. Mew says:

    Real men don’t have curves but real women do? Celebrate yourself as you are, especially if you have round figure? Why is weighloss inspirational then?

  32. michele says:

    Comecomecome cameleon, weight comes and goes. It comes and goesooooes!!! LOL! But yea, he looks good! Happy vegan bro!

  33. Chrissy says:

    He looks good but at the same time I am concerned he could be unwell.

  34. Pearl says:

    he looks great!! Weight loss does make a person look younger and great!! for 51 he looks great

  35. telesma says:

    He owns or is part owner of a vegan/raw foods/nutrition store in (I think) Kensington and I know he took up jogging a while back. Not surprised he’s lost a bunch of weight.

    Also, he’s been a vegetarian for probably at least 20 years, ever since he did the hare krishna thing in the late 80′s/early 90′s. If I had to guess, I’d say it’s taking up exercise seriously that’s made the big difference. He always hated it and was never really serious about it before.
