The legendary Elton John may be settling down with fiancé David Furnish once the two finally get hitched later this year, but the singer revealed to Ellen this week that he may be in the market for a new boy toy.
After singing the praises of Miley Cyrus and her controversial performance at the VMAs earlier this month, Elton said he didn’t care much for the tongue hanging out of Miley’s mouth, but he “would take her old boyfriend” Liam Hemsworth.
Right on cue behind his brazen confession and an equally unsettling smirk, he more or less told millions of viewers that he and Furnish have “men on the side” just like Dan Savage. But this isn’t really news—Elton John & Co. have been known to go yachting with the Eastern European babes of gay porn site Bel Ami, and nobody ever thought they were sailing to the middle of the ocean just for the views.
The bigger question here is, Does anyone want to be Elton John’s boy toy right now? He’s been in some hot water lately for rubbing Russian boycotters the wrong way, telling The Guardian he would be playing a concert in Moscow later this year to support his gay fans abroad. “Do you stop everyone going, ban all the artists coming in from Russia?”, he said.
Though he hasn’t (yet) been banned from performing in Russia, he was asked by Conservative Russian groups earlier this year to abandon his usual attire and wear a “knee-length caftan” instead. To further ignite controversy before the upcoming concert date, a Russian parents’ group appealed to President Vladimir Putin this week, asking him to personally cancel the concert. They claim “the singer intends to come out in support of local sodomites,” and should be made to sit on the sidelines with Madonna, Lady Gaga, and Selena Gomez.
Still no response from Putin. Perhaps he doesn’t want to surrender his incredible front-row seats?
