Has Elton John Ever Used Eminem’s Very Personal, Very Expensive Wedding Gift?

Soon to release his 30th (!) studio album, Elton John has no problem talking about the transgressions of his 63 years. And in a wide-ranging interview with The Telegraph, we learn many answers to future editions of Trivial Pursuit.

• He refers to himself as “the acceptable face of homosexuality, because I’m quite blokey. And I’m very happy with that. That’s why I love being in this country [Britain], because people are always very honest with me and very kind and have a great sense of humour, and you still get the wolf whistles walking along the street and stuff like that.”

• He’s not on email or Facebook or Twitter, because he does not own a computer. Or an iPod.

• He still orders CDs, and pays for them, and orders four copies of every record he likes — one for each of his homes in Nice, Atlanta, Venice, and Windsor.

• It tour four volumes to record all of Elton’s home furnishings to auction off at Sotheby’s in the 80s when he decided to redecorate.

• His greatest achievement: sobriety.

• He used to shut himself inside the house for days, skip any bathing routine, watch porn and stuff himself (and then throw it all up).

• He excuses his $1 million performance at Rush Limbaugh’s wedding by noting the radio host has the same views on gay marriage as Barack Obama: “But Limbaugh’s not anti-civil partnerships, so maybe I can have a dialogue about that. I’ve put my foot in the water and so has he. I got on with him very well, got on very well with his wife. I don’t have the same politics, but that doesn’t really matter. And I think this year I can start to put things in motion by trying to get him on my side.”

• It took David’s documentary about him, Tantrums and Tiaras, for him to realize he’s a whiny queen.

• Besides art and photography, his biggest hobby bills come from collecting porcelain.

• To celebrate Elton and David Furnish’s civil partnership, Eminem sent them “two diamond-encrusted cock-rings.”

      Ah… Elton’s delusions!! I think he has “blokey” confused with “bloated”. The only wolf whistles he gets is from gays who are saying “Damn, that useless, arrogant queen is so out of touch.”

      It really bothers me that Elton is conceited enough to declare himself the “acceptable face of homosexuality.” I personally detest the man for declaring that “gays set their sights too high with marriage. We don’t need that right.” Gee, Elton, thanks for being the face that speaks for all of us and declares all of us quite content with being lesser citizens.

      My reaction to the first point:
      if by “blokey” he means “posher than tea at Buckingham Palace”, then yes, yes he is quite blokey.

      My reaction to the last point:

      How do you know that wasn’t exactly what they wanted? I imagine they already have a blender.

      Did Eminem personally deliver the gift?

      Based on the stories about Em and his oh so very “Little Em” if he used his tool as a guage, they may have at first confused them for pinky rings…… :p

      He’s not blokey at all. The reason he’s the acceptable face of homosexuality is because he’s a self-loathing fag who thinks it’s acceptable for gays to be second-class citizens, and that gays should be quiet and grateful when people like Eminem and Rush Limbaugh abuse us.

      Oh, and here’s another reason to hate him: he wants people to think he’s blokey.

      Yeah, you’re just one of the guys, Elton. You’re practically Eminem’s best friend. Maybe if you try really hard, he’ll invite you to his birthday party.

      That just sounds… uncomfortable. In more ways than one.

      Besides, I thought couples were supposed to give *each other* rings :)
