Sir Elton John "Happy" Despite Prank Phone Call In Which He Believed He Was Speaking To Vladimir Putin


Elton John

Sir Elton John is insistent that he’s “happy” to have been the subject of a prank phone call from a pair of Russian TV presenters pretending to be Vladimir Putin, saying that the “unfortunate” incident may end up highlighting gay discrimination.

Earlier this week, TV presenters Vladimir Krasnov and Alexei Stolyarov, who are known by the nicknames ‘Vova and Lexus’ in Russia, rang up Sir Elton, who is vocal in his support for the LGBT community, and apparently led him to believe that he was talking to the Russian president and his press secretary Dmitry Peskov. A brief clip of the conversation was also released, in which Sir Elton is heard to say that a meeting with Putin in November would be “fantastic”.

The pair have stated to Russian entertainment website MSK that the full 11-minute conversation will be aired tonight (September 17th) via the state-backed channel on which they present. They seem to have gotten the inspiration for the prank after Sir Elton told the BBC over the weekend that he wanted to sit down and discuss the issue of gay rights with the Russian President, having attended a conference in Ukraine.

Sir Elton John Slams Venice Mayor For Ban On Children's Books About Homosexuality


Elton John David Furnish

Sir Elton John has taken to social media to brand the mayor of Venice as “boorishly bigoted” after the official’s decision to ban books about homosexuality from the city’s primary schools.

The multi-million selling musical veteran, 68, married his long-term partner David Furnish in December 2014, and used his Instagram page to criticise newly appointed right-wing Venetian mayor Luigi Brugnaro for the decision he took in June that all primary schools and nurseries would not be allowed to make books featuring same-sex couples and themes to pupils.

Ed Sheeran Says Treating His Parents Is Best Thing About Fame


Ed Sheeran Madonna Eminem Elton John Queen

He may be one of the biggest pop stars of the moment, but it's not the money, or the awards, or even the screaming fans that make the climb to the top worth all the hard work. Rather, Ed Sheeran says the biggest reward of fame is his ability to change his parents' lives for the better.

Madonna has offered her opinion on the Dolce And Gabbana controversy and firmly supports Elton John's views. The controversy stems from a comment made by designer Domenico Dolce in an interview in an Italian magazine, Panorama. In the interview, Dolce described children born by IVF as "synthetic babies". The March issue of the magazine was released on 12th March but the backlash against the duo continues with many celebrities and LGBT groups calling for a boycott of the label and protesters picketing D&G stores.

This year was no exception.

Super Duper Alice Cooper Trailer


It's fair to say that Vincent Furnier made musical history when he became Alice Cooper; an androgynous shock rocker who spent his teenage years pursuing a career in rock, and certainly not following in his preacher father's footsteps. From his inception, Alice Cooper went against the grain of what is accepted in modern music with over-the-top, gore-filled live shows which at one point saw a chicken get unwittingly murdered by his audience. However, the fun soon got out of hand when Alice Cooper and his band got fully submerged in the rock 'n' roll world of alcohol and drug abuse. Setting up the drinking club The Hollywood Vampires, Alice Cooper would be hospitalised more than once for his substance abuse issues, getting so obsessed with that world that he would not even be able to remember large chunks of his recording career.

Sir Elton John will not be favouring any political party in the UK election - despite claims from Nigel Farage that the singer may support his party, Ukip. The politician told an internet radio station that he was due to make a ‘big announcement’ after attending a dinner party at the legendary singer/songwriter’s home earlier this summer.

The British icon recently sat down with Sky News and discussed the progress society has made for protecting gays against discrimination and hate, but he also offered a rather controversial thought.

Bonnaroo festival ended on a high note yesterday, with Elton John as the final performer – but not before fans had been queuing up for over 12 hours to see the Brit perform. But even before he took the stage for his first ever American festival performance, there was plenty to see and hear in the supporting acts.

Bonnaroo was the Brit's first festival appearance.

One of the most anticipated gigs at Bonnaroo was the Arctic Monkeys’ set. Late in the swealtering afternoon, they opened with their festival sing-along Do I Wanna Know?, which funnily enough echoed Sam Smith’s cover on Friday night. The festival crowd was loving it though, with one woman reportedly taking to mattress-surfing during their set.
