WHAT'S THAT, GEORGE?

In a bid to keep the publicity balloon aloft ("to explain his waspish remarks about other celebrities") Boy George has been yakking away again. Can anyone explain to us what he actually means by this:

I had very parallel experiences with George Michael.

"We're both called George. We were both big in the eighties. We're both gay and we dealt with it in very different ways.

"I was seen as the obvious homosexual, when in actual fact I was in a relationship."


Why is "being in a relationship" the apparent opposite of being homosexual? Is George - shock - falling back on the sort of lazy stereotyping of gay men as being promiscuous. The, erm, lazy stereotyping he was originally blaming George Michael for upholding?
