What does Boy George say?

You may recall - ah, you probably don't recall - a previous controversy in which two candidates were proposed for U.N. Secretary General - Boy George and Elton John.

Well, Julia Roy clipmarked an article that may damage Elton John's popularity with the technical set.

POP legend Sir Elton John wants the internet CLOSED DOWN.

Never one to keep his opinions to himself, the Rocket Man has waded into cyberspace with all guns blazing.

He claims it is destroying good music, saying: “The internet has stopped people from going out and being with each other, creating stuff....

“Hopefully the next movement in music will tear down the internet.

“Let’s get out in the streets and march and protest instead of sitting at home and blogging.

“I do think it would be an incredible experiment to shut down the whole internet for five years and see what sort of art is produced over that span.

“There’s too much technology available.

“I’m sure, as far as music goes, it would be much more interesting than it is today.”

Maybe that's why Elton wasn't at the Cow Palace last week.
