Vladimir Putin Turns Up His Nose At Elton John’s Request To Meet

gay putinOf all the insane, rotten things that living butt plug Vladimir Putin has done, the worst might be that he is apparently being quite rude to Sir Elton John.

Elton has long said that he would like to meet with Putin to talk about his barbaric record on human rights for Russian LGBTs. But Putin has so far pretended that he has nothing to discuss.

He recently told Sky News that he was going to try to meet with Putin while there for a concert.

But here’s what Putin’s office told reporters, “We have not had a request for a meeting from him… So no meeting is happening. At this point, we have nothing more to say.”

Even if that’s true — and you can trust Putin’s office just about as far as you can throw them — what do they expect, an engraved invitation? They know Elton wants to talk. At this point, refusing to hold a meeting is squarely on their shoulders.

    Elton John needs to shut-up and sing. I know he fancies himself as some sort of elder statesman but he’s anything but. Putin’s draconian anti-gay record is part of a much larger goal: reassembling the former Soviet Union (SEE: Crimea and Ukraine), a goal embraced and supported by the Russian people. Sorry Elton but, time to get back on that piano bench and chortle ‘Benny and the Jets’.

    Elton’s just attention-whoring….again. Reminds me of when Jason Collins wanted to talk to Phil Robertson. What makes these silly queens think either guy would want to sit and chat?

  • hotboyvb81

    not that I support Putin- but what world leader has time to drop everything and meet with prima donna rock stars???? Both of these guys are bitches who serioulsy need to get over themselves.

    if he’s looking for someone to have a meeting with, try obama, he has nothing to do. but Elton maybe it’s not the issues, maybe it’s just you. i mean, even I wouldn’t have any time for a meeting with Elton, and i’m not really all that busy. hahahahha.

    Oh!I think that Mr. Putin should accept to receive Dame Elton John for many reasons like have the pleasure to spend his time with such charming lady – because ‘ milady ‘ ( Well (s)he is a ” Dame “…) is still glamorous after her two pregnancies and no one can deny an appeal made for such a lovely mother of two, Mr. Putin should consider how delightful it’ll be have tea with her: always elegant, with her satin skin that shows no traces of plastic surgeries, make-up or photoshop and of course all those natural hair… and receveing tips about how to raise children nowadays. Mr. Putin is a man very buzy – he is very interested about fucked up rock bands and to make his country grow ( literally )so ‘ milady ‘ should be very helpful if Mr. Putin’s in need to relax a little with fine company.

    President Obama is too busy working on advancing gay rights to meet with Elton John @jonjct.

  • Mezaien

    In Russian, Putin, or as I call him puking, is a “MUJICK” peasant, or a commoner AND what can really be expect from a fucked up Christian.

  • sectbrawn

    The day Elton John agreed to sing at that anti-gay loudmouth Rush Limbaugh’s 45,098th wedding he lost all credibility. He’s nothing more than a sellout.

  • jonjct

    @northwest: maybe he’s working on gay rights, but isn’t that what social workers are supposed to do? apparently he doesn’t understand the rest of his job has to be done too. maybe an economic policy, perhaps a foreign policy? you can’t sit around all day writing proclamations about gay rights and playing golf and call yourself the president. he never understood his job, he cannot do it, even when people explain it to him. plus he is arrogant and narcissistic, in a word, a loser. he will go down in history as the lease accomplished president on record, and he will blame it on the opposition party. “it’s not MY fault”. impotent little loser. time to go buddy, back to morningside heights to smoke weed and do a few lines with friends. those were the days, huh Barry?

    @Mezaien: Who’s a Christian ? Just because he lights a candle or two and poses in a cathedral on holidays does not Putin a Christian make. He would be like a mouse in the cookie jar – pretending to be a cookie.

    I thought he was a former KGB thug. Aren’t communists supposed to be atheists? Please don’t lump him in with we Christians. Don’t be fooled by the photos, then make a sweeping generalization…

    @jonjct: Thank you our resident gay Republican with your well laid out right-wing talking points. Yes, you turn a story about Elton and Putin into a rant about what you think of Obama, how desperate.

  • jonjct

    @tjr101: Desperate? hahahahah. How does an attention who*re like yourself recognize “desperation” in someone else when all you do is pay attention to yourself? Me, me, me says trj101, over and over again until everyone else is asleep. It’s okay, you’re probably really young.

  • jwrappaport

    My disdain for Premier Putin aside, I very much doubt it’s customary for heads of state, let alone one of a major world power, to meet with pop stars to discuss substantive issues.

  • justSomeGuyFromNJ

    @Desert Boy: Ever since Elton decided to perform with Axl Rose after Rose made horribly anti-gay statements, I’ve lost all respect for him as an individual. Sure, I’ll still listen to his music and have fond memories of his music in my life, but as a person?

    Nah. He’s a bit of an attention whore.

  • tjr101

    @jonjct: lol, your a quisling idiot.

  • jonjct

    @tjr101: ^ where’s a “like” when I need it? :)

  • AddyNell

    The only redeemable trait; he is from my state? Or should I be embarrassed. Not sure! The TC gay men’s chorus totally has an AJ look alike though!
