Controversial pop star Boy George has launched another vicious attack on fellow gay singer George Michael for deliberately hiding his homosexuality to aid his record sales.

The Karma Chameleon icon is still furious at the former Wham! heart-throb for only speaking out about his true sexual orientation in 1998 - after he was arrested for lewd behaviour with another man in a Los Angeles public toilet.

George tells PAGESIX.COM, "People saw me as the benchmark queer while George was passing himself off as a straight stud. In fact, he was loitering in public loos like some pre-war homosexual.

"It's one thing to keep quiet. It's another to pretend you're someone you're not."
