The murder threat sent to Boy George was so serious that he had to wear a bulletproof vest on stage.
Music legend George, 59, described his fear of life after sweeping the world in the 1980s.
He hosted a planned Culture Club performance in Louisiana. It was hours after he was under a terrible threat that he called a mad religious group.
While traveling to the United States, he was bombed with an evil message, but the star refused to block the performance and instead took drastic steps to keep it safe.

Gay icon, real name George Alan O’Dowd, is forever known for his flashy style and will not hide who he is from anyone.
However, he responded perfectly to homophobias.
He said, “People [in America] It was really gorgeous, but a few times [he received threats].
“In fact, there was one night on Halloween when I had to go on stage wearing a bulletproof vest.
The star added, “I was really miserable because I looked really fat because of that.”
“A few times I saw a lot of religious groups of that kind who came to performances with signs saying,’If sex is a sin, what’s Boy George?’ And all of that.
“They moved to Marilyn Manson, but over the years we brought them and I used to open the top of the limousine and go out and kiss them.”
The star recently sat down for an interview with GQ Magazine and uncovered his first Culture Club paycheck.
“After we sign the contract, we are buying expensive makeup and clothes,” he said.
“Until we were successful, my makeup was a random pot I had had for years, and it was nice to be able to go to the luxury counters because I changed them all with my fingers.
“At that time, I would have gotten a lot of plaster as a man at the makeup counter.”
