Flamboyant pop star Boy George attended the launch of his controversial new memoirs in London last night (17MAR05) - with a new internet boyfriend in tow.

The former Culture Club frontman's book STRAIGHT has caused a stir over recent weeks, because it includes damning critiques of George's contemporaries SIR Elton John and George Michael.

And it seems the singer was determined to keep his name in the headlines at last night's bash at the capital's Home House. When asked of his dashing Dutch escort, the Karma Chameleon replied, "I met him on the internet. Gorgeous isn't he!"

George was also keen to share the fun he had writing Straight. Alluding to its venomous contents, he joked, "I've got so many axes to grind that the book cold have been called GRINDING AXE."
