culture club. I was asking him about the video who do you lack like right there celebrity you said. My mother. My mom. Now my dad with the beard I look so much like my family. Your daddy read an article when you came out to him he said I love you. Despite, yes he was great actually. Reporter: Were you worried he wouldn't be. I'm dead I thought. Finish. rereporter: Is he conservative. Parents. Parents are unpredictable. When you think they are upset about things they are not bothered. When you think it's something really not important they go crazy. My parents were open minded actually. Spritionly. I think you only discover that as you grow up when confronted with the things and you think wow! They surprised me. Reporter: In that moment he doesn't need, he needs me a certain way. I think they kind of knew as well. No. Surprise surprise my dad actually turned the radio down with my brother and he sort of announced that there was something funny about George and my brother oh, you men he's gay. They all knew. What do they Ty about your fame? I think at the beginning it was so mental. I remember my sister sort of followed to work and photographed and she hated it because she's really not someone who wants to be in the public eye. And it affected my family in various different ways. But not so much now. Not so much now but in the beginning it was insane. Reporter: In this world of social media we have which is adds to the hysteria. Imagine adjust continue Bieber. You were adjust continue bieb whaer do you think of him. He's gorgeous. Great hair. He's quite the man. He's actually I was in a store the other day and looking at a picture of Miley Cyrus she has an droj any about her and so does Justin Bieber I think some of the biggest kind of stars have this kind of boy girl thing. You are not sure do you know what I mean that's definitely a bonus. Reporter: He would not agree with you Justin Bieber but I think you are right. He does have those features. Miley too she shaves her eye brow. That an droj any thing. Advice to young stavrments nobody I wouldn't listen to them or wouldn't listthem or wouldn't listen to them. What advice if you had to say one thing. I would just say I hope they make it through whatever they are going through because you can't tell people. You really can't. Especially people on the payroll because they get fired. Does it keep reinventing yourself and keep staying on top. I think it's about the music in the than. If you don't come back to the music that's really whether it's about. You know I think as you get older you turn to, you kind of realize the value what you are doing music is what about it's about. If you get to that point then you can kind of do anything. Reporter: Out of all the young pop stars caught in the middle of the hysteria now who do you see doing it well, handling themselves well. That's a difficult one isn't it? Probably can't even know. She's not a new star she said the other night I gave an award and she has become a gay icon without falling apart which is unbelievable. Reporter: You have to be a hot mess. When you are a female guy icon you are sort of a drunk or she's someone I would say even Madonna has kept it together. If you look at someone who hasn't really necessarily fallen apart she's the only one. Reporter: What about lady gaga. I don't know much about her. I don't know her not really properly. Is she following you on Twitter. She is not. Come on gaga. I don't think so. I feel like she borrowed from you or take what you have done. The point is that in the 70's we went from this and people of this generation are influenced by the 80's so for lady gaga Madonna is a powerful reference as I am sure I am. You have to look at that as kind of compliment. I don't think it's something to be upset b.it's great. Because then it makes people go back to the past and explore that so I'm getting kids mate shows who can't possibly have been around in 1982. These ain 1982. These are lake babies. So amazing. In L.A. Kids dressed up. With top hat and feather boa. I want more of that. The hat. Or the hat. Reporter: What part of London are you from because I love the the the th is a V. East London where he talk like that. I'm actually quite posh for someone from London. Reporter: Say brother. Brother. We'll talk about your weight loss how you are fit what you are eating everything to get this look. Princess Diana off great princess Diana story we need to hear all coming up next.
