THR: Mark Ronson also worked on Duran Duran’s well-received new album, All You Need Is Now. At one point, Culture Club and Duran were considered enemies, how is it seeing those guys now?
George: I've been friends with Simon [LeBon] and Nick [Rhodes] for a long time. I used to live in the same apartment block as John Taylor in New York, so we always knew each other. Last week, I saw Simon and he actually said to me, "We're so lucky to do what we're doing. To still be doing this is amazing." And I think that's absolutely true. When you're younger, you think you're in competition with everyone. You think everyone's success is a threat to you, and this is a thing you grow out of. You get older and you suddenly realize the only person you're in competition with is yourself.
