Boy George, One Direction

Boy George is certainly no stranger to speaking his mind.

And the '80s icon has done just that (again!) when it comes to a certain boy band.

"The odds are one of One Direction must be gay," George told the Daily Star regarding Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson.

He added, "I think everyone is a bit bisexual deep down, so the odds are they are probably all bisexual. They're rock stars so it's what you'd expect, isn't it? I'd be disappointed if they weren't."

Of course, this isn't the first time Boy George and 1D have jointly made headlines.

Following the Brit Awards earlier this year, the Culture Club frontman and Payne had a bit of a Twitter spat after the heartthrob allegedly refused to pause and take a photo with his niece on the red carpet.

But despite that war of words, George insists he "wouldn't know who One Direction were if they fell on my head. I'm older than them, they should treat me with respect. I blocked all the band, I couldn't be bothered to hear anything they said but I couldn't help winding up their fans."
