Did you read about his suggested alternatives to trash-picking?

From the AP: "He petitioned to spend the time helping teenagers make a public service announcement. Among his other proposals to the court: holding a fashion and makeup workshop, serving as a DJ at an HIV/AIDS benefit or doing telephone outreach."

Glad he got sanitation duty.

I remember Boy George from the 1980s. I really enjoyed his music and his outrageous eye catching appearance. I hope that this talented human being is able to rise beyond this experience and once again share his enormous talent with the world.

Good luck!

Is he wearing a prison uniform? Please don't tell me he picked that out himself, unless he's still high...

Looks like one of those brightly colored vests municipal workers wear when they are on the job on the street.

Another site described his pants as "Manpris"...

I guess I just don't understand the big hullaballoo over this. I mean, you're talking about a way Has Been celebrity who got in trouble for a stupid but not dangerous to other people crime doing a relatively easy five days. Who cares?
