Eighties singer Boy George has slammed SIR Elton John for his inability to accept retaliations from stars like George Michael who have suffered his cutting comments.

The CULTURE CLUB star and DJ is amused by the ROCKET MAN's public feuds with stars including Madonna and Robbie Williams, but he believes the feisty singer should take himself less seriously.

He says, "On the one hand, you've got all these boy bands pretending to really like each other, and then you've got all the gays having a good old bicker.

"He's a great singer, but he doesn't like it when people slag him off. He can be a bit precious."
