Speaking to Scarlette Douglas, the hitmaker explained his anger: “You know, when the pandemic started, my mom was in the hospital. I wasn’t allowed to see her. I thought she was going to die.
‘I tweeted the Greenwich hospital: ‘Please take care of my mother.’ I used my name, I thought, “Please take care of my mother.” And they did, she was fine.
“I feel like I don’t want to sit here like I’m having fun with him.

Boy George continued: ‘If I had lost my mother, I would go. And I feel a little selfish, you know, just a little… everybody is so nice to him and I was just like Jesus, what are we going to do?

The actress wisely told the singer, “I think you’re going to sleep on it tonight. Why he came in and what he’s doing here is not our responsibility, nor is it ours to record.’
Viewers were quick to say on Twitter that they “can’t wait” to see Boy George express his true feelings to Matt after saying he wants to leave.
Another said: ‘Absolutely right on Boy George, many families couldn’t have their last moments together and he roamed around like nothing was wrong’.
