It’s always delightful when celebrities known for their lavish, immoral lifestyles decide to lecture us on religion and God. Elton John, the original LGBTQ activist, sat down for an interview with Variety’s Marc Malkin. The interview, published on June 19, was merely John offering advice for younger LGBTQ people.
Sir Elton John doesn’t like being a Brit anymore because so many of his countrymen do. He’s upset that the U.K. voted for Brexit and, according to The Guardian, he told an audience in Verona, Italy that “I’m ashamed of my country for what it has done.”
After surviving a targeted effort by Turkish lobbies to derail its success, the Armenian Genocide film The Promise will open in American theaters next week. And Hollywood celebs are getting the word out.
Ultra-liberal Daily Show co-creator Lizz Winstead appeared on Thursday’s Hardball to declare how she’s “thrilled” with a star-studded concert in Miami, set to compete with the presidential inauguration, which won’t be an act of, say, unity for the country, but one of “solidarity” with “people who literally don't want to watch this person get sworn in.” Winstead also expressed glee that President-elect Donald Trump has been unable to attract A-list celebrities for his inauguration seeing as how he plans to “literally destroy the lives” of celebrities who are “women, black and brown...[or] immigrants.”
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has garnered a vast Hollywood following. Of the top 50 wealthiest celebrities, at least nine have thrown their support behind Clinton, and are using their influence and money to promote her campaign.
Did you realize Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer” could be “weaponized” to instigate violence and that Billy Joel’s “Uptown Girl” was “authoritarian hold music” similar to Adolf Hitler? If not, then you just aren’t listening, man. Washington Post music critic Chris Richards made the front page of the Style section with “And the Bland Played On.” The original online headline to the post was kookier: “Authoritarian hold music: How Donald Trump’s banal playlist cultivates danger at his rallies.” The essay reads more like an obscure blog post gone awry than somethhing worth of prominent play in a national newspaper:
ABC, CBS, and NBC's morning newscasts on Monday all touted the apparent "backlash" and "firestorm" against Italian fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana for their support for the traditional family and condemnation of in-vitro fertilization and surrogate motherhood. The programs all spotlighted how homosexual musician Elton John called for a boycott of the duo's label, and how multiple celebrities ran to his support. However, they didn't bother to quote from Dolce and Gabbana's supporters.
Elton John is worried about Miley Cyrus following her raunchy performance at last month's MTV Video Music Awards.
In an interview with the Australian Saturday, John said, “I look at Miley Cyrus and I see a meltdown waiting to happen" (subscription required, photo courtesy Getty):
Hillary Clinton is likely going to have to create a separate wing in her Chappaqua, New York, home for all the awards she's going to receive in the coming years to assist her march to the White House.
On Wednesday, the Elton John Foundation announced that the recently opposed to same-sex marriage former Secretary of State is to receive the organization's first Founder's award for her - wait for it - support of gay rights.
In an interview with singer Elton John on Tuesday's NBC Today that focused on the performer's AIDS awareness activism, co-host Matt Lauer teed him up to rate recent presidents on combating the disease: "Elton champions those he feels made a positive impact on the AIDS epidemic, but he also takes to task those he believes caused harm. And he doesn't hold back." [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump]
Lauer declared: "Let's play a little game of political word association. Give me the brief answer to each of the names that I'm going to throw out, just your first reaction. Ronald Reagan." John sniffed: "Overrated." Lauer continued: "Bill Clinton." John gushed: "Fantastic. Made some big mistakes but, God, he's a fantastic man."
63-year-old aging rock star Elton John wants to be a guest star on the hit TV series "Glee" with the storyline that he's the lover of the overbearing coach of the cheerleaders, but he ends up in bed with the show's 16-year-old gay virgin.
This was revealed by the Emmy Award-winning co-star of the program Jane Lynch on Monday's "Tonight Show" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
Is the cat fight a strictly feminine affair, or can a man and woman engage in one? Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski certainly seemed to offer up a fair facsimile of the genre today. The two traded feline fisticuffs on Morning Joe.
Scarborough went first, swiping at Katie Couric for having cavorted on a Miami beach with her beau before departing for Egypt. Mika later retaliated, archly musing about the number of Limbaugh's marriages during a segment featuring Elton John's comments on El Rushbo.
