Anastacia is totally in love with Elton John.
The two powerhouse singers formed a friendship more than 15 years ago, after they performed together at Madison Square Garden in New York. Elton was so taken with the Paid My Dues star, he even kissed her stomach in appreciation of her flawless vocals on his hit Saturday Night’s Alright (For Fighting).
“I’m in love with him for the rest of my life,” she gushed to Britain’s Hello! magazine. “I don’t get to see him as often as I’d like. We have to figure out where he is and where I am at any given time, but I don’t try to overload him because I know he’s a very busy man.”
She’s hoping to catch up with her buddy when she lands in the U.K. next month (June16) to play at the Hampton Court Palace Festival.
