A still from Boy George’s new music video.

Eighties gay pop icon Boy George says that he is considering trying to reunite his former Culture Club band mates to celebrate the group’s 30th anniversary.

“It’s our 30-year anniversary next year so we may do something. I don’t know if it would be a prolonged thing. I think we could do a one-off gig or maybe a small tour,” the 48 year old singer told BBC radio.

Culture Club, known for hits such as Karma Chameleon and Do You Really Want to Hurt Me, were one of the most influential bands of the 80’s, in part thanks to George’s gender-bending appearance.

“There’s a part of me that thinks I should do it, but we’ll see. It’s all about my mood at the time,” he added.

After Culture Club disbanded in 1986, George launched a brief solo career and then became known as a club deejay. In recent years he has been in the spotlight thanks to his legal woes.

In 2006 he was ordered to undertake community service in New York after drugs were found in his apartment and most recently he spent four months in jail after being found guilty of holding a male prostitute against his will at his London flat.

George is now in the midst of reviving his career as a singer and recently released a new single. View the video below and tell us what you think of Amazing Grace.
