Boy George has revealed he is writing songs for hip-hop star Kanye West
Boy George is writing songs for Kanye West.
The flamboyant former Culture Club singer and the 'Stronger' rapper are planning to collaborate after Kanye revealed he is a huge fan of George.
George is hoping the track proves more successful than the recent composition he wrote for Australian pop superstar Kylie Minogue.
George - real name George O'Dowd - said: "I wrote a song for Kylie but her representative said it was too Kylie. I don't know what he meant by that.
"I'm actually doing something for Kanye West soon. My friend Amanda Ghost is a big songwriter at the moment.
"She met with Kanye a couple of weeks ago and he loved 'Karma Chameleon' and he's looking for real songs. Whether or not he does it is another story! He might say it's too Kanye West!"
Earlier this month, Kanye launched his new album by hiring 40 models to stand naked in a room wearing masks while guests listened to tracks.
A source said: "We walked into a darkened room where we saw 40 nude women. Most of them were wearing strange masks made of wool.
"The models stood in the middle of the room - black girls at the front and white girls at the back. Then the entire album played without any introduction or explanation."
