Dolce And Gabbana Clarify Controversial IVF Comments


Elton John

Italian fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have sought to defuse the uproar over their comments about children born through IVF by saying they respect how all people choose to live their lives.

Comments made by Dolce in the Italian magazine Panorama last week, describing IVF babies as “chemistry children” and “synthetic children”, exploded in a celebrity feud on social media over the weekend, resulting in a boycott of the fashion house’s products led by Sir Elton John.

So Dolce and Gabbanna (the designers, not the company) have made some eyebrow-raising statements recently and received some backlash – from Elton John, of all people.

Elton John almost got an apology out of Dolce and Gabbana. Almost.

The Italian design duo, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, whose romantic union lasted 23 years until 2005, told Italy's Panorama magazine: "We oppose gay adoptions. The only family is the traditional one."

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.

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.

Bonnaroo was the Brit's first festival appearance.

One of the most anticipated gigs at Bonnaroo was the Arctic Monkeys’ set.

Pharrell Williams, the hip-hop artist best known for the Oscar-nominated single 'Happy', revealed the meaning behind the name of his son Rocket Ayer, born in 2008. The name serves as a homage to Williams' favourite musicians, Roy Ayers, Elton John, Stevie Wonder and Herbie Hancock.

Michael Jordan is looking forward to becoming a dad for what will be the fourth time, with his much-younger wife Yvette Prieto, it was reported earlier this week. First reported by www.terezowens.com, the pregnancy comes some months after the pair tied the knot in April this year, after five years of dating,and whilst Jordan might be in his 50's now, this could very well be the founding of another family for the NBA legend.

Jordan isn't alone becoming a father well into middle age, as the celebrity world is full of older fathers. Some, like Jordan, have gone on to start new families in their advanced years following a divorce or loss of partner (or maybe even a scandal of some sort), whilst others like to leave it late before finally settling down and having offspring. Here, we look at five older gentlemen who waited until after their 50th birthday before having children.

Forbes have once again compiled their yearly list of highest earning celebrities in every possible respect and the winner for highest earning musician in 2013 is a very familiar face indeed: Madonna.

Tom Hardy To Play Elton John. Four Clips Of Tom Hardy Singing.


Tom Hardy Elton John

Tom Hardy has won the race to play Elton John in Michael Gracey's biography Rocketman. As Deadline reported in June, FilmDistrict paid $10 million to acquire the U.S. rights to the movie, which is written by Billy Elliot's Lee Hall.

The company snapped up the movie after it became the talk of Cannes, where it was shopped by UTA - the agency that structured the financing. FilmDistrict's Peter Schlessel has since taken over Focus Features, which will release the movie with a promise of sizable P&A.

Rocketman will follow Elton's journey from musical prodigy, to winning a scholarship at the Royal Academy of Music, to his rebellious teenage years and finally becoming a global icon who outsold just about every musical artist of his era.

Elton John Tom Hardy

In an upcoming planned biopic looking at the life of legendary British singer and songwriter Elton John, British actor Tom Hardy has reportedly been cast as the 'Rocketman' himself.

Set to start shooting in late 2014, the movie will be written by Lee Hall who wrote the Oscar-nominated screenplay Billy Elliot and was involved in the production of the recent War Horse film. Hardy's is a most unconventional casting: the actor clearly has proven acting talent but has appeared as tough-guy characters in most of his film appearances; the most notable of which was baddie Bane in last year's The Dark Knight Rises.

Elton John - The Diving Board Album Review


He's 66 years old with a knighthood, worldwide fame and a reputation that 'X Factor' contestants couldn't even imagine, but Sir Elton John's 30th album offering 'The Diving Board' may not have been released to the kind of anticipation that his much earlier albums created.  This seems to have been the case in recent years as his 2006 album 'The Captain and The Kid' was John's least successful album since his 1969 debut.  But why would someone with six Grammy's and a career spanning nearly 50 years be put off by a few bumps in the road?  Elton John has certainly gone through worse than a low selling album throughout his well-publicised life and career.

Elton John - The Diving Board Album Review

Together, with long standing writing partner Bernie Taupin, the man responsible for classics such as 'Your Song', 'Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me' and both versions of 'Candle in the Wind'  to name a few, Elton John is back with a superb album.  With his confidence and belief in his music regained after admitting he didn't want to make another record after 'The Captain and The Kid''s lack of success, this album is full of the beauty we'd expect from one of the world's most influential musicians.

This confidence is back bigger than ever as, unbelievably, this album features his first solo album track ever, 'My Quicksand'. This is the stand out track of this fabulous album.  This poignant number not only highlights the remarkable talent of John but also tells a story of failure which, in one way or another, every listener will be able to relate to.  "Poignant" seems to be the theme of the album; in opening track 'Oceans Away', the line "of a generation gathering for maybe the last time" gives a heartbreakingly true observation in this musical tribute to WWII veterans.  Single 'Home Again' seems to have John reflecting on being home and his longing to be home, maybe lyrics he would have never written had he not become a father in between this album and his last record.  The deep and touching nature of this album can also be heard in title track 'The Diving Board', a song about the famous young.  Lines such as "you'd free fall into the ether" highlight the dangers of fame, and I can't think of many people more qualified to give advice on this matter then Sir Elton himself.  The vulnerable and emotional 'Voyeur and The New Fever Waltz' take on the subject of love with soulful rhythm and the beautifully written lyrics that have made Elton John a musical legend.  Storytelling lyrics have never been a stranger to Sir Elton John; much like 'Candle in the Wind', originally written for Marilyn Monroe and then, of course, Diana, Princess of Wales, 'Oscar Wilde Gets Out' tells the story of the man himself from his life in London, Paris and New York to his imprisonment.  Mixed with enchanted piano rifts it guarantees that this will be the song you will be left singing after listening to the album.  'A Town Called Jubilee' has that rare quality that allows you to lose yourself as you follow the story which melts perfectly into the South American sound of this brilliant track.

Elton John Thanks The Joys Of Fatherhood For Inspiring New Album, But Says It's Time To Slow Down


Elton John The Strypes Ed Sheeran

Elton John has had a truly remarkable career, one that has lasted more than forty years, seen him break countless records and as he got older, one that has allowed him to settle down and begin a family. In a recent interview with British newspaper The Mirror, Sir Elton discussed his longstanding career, the passion that drives it and why he now feels that it is finally time to settle down and stop his endless touring.

Elton is finally ready to slow down

A noted workaholic, it has taken fatherhood and the recent life-threatening fight with appendicitis to convince the 66-year-old to slow down.

Elton John's bout of appendicitis appears to be more serious than first assumed, with the legendary singer-songwriter suggesting he was close to death while performing 10 concerts on his recent European tour. Sir Elton has been forced to postpone a series of summer dates, including at London's Hyde Park this week.

Although we don't yet know just how the 'Glee' star popped the question, we can only assume it was majorly sweet as he didn't struggle listing off his recent romantic endeavours in an interview with the Huffington Post. Asked what is the most romantic thing he's ever done for Renee, he said: 'Hard to pick just one thing. We are really both into horses. Every new city or place we go, we always try to find a place to go horseback riding. One time in particular, after our horseback riding, we went along this beach in Hawaii. I set up this nice little picnic.' Awwwwww! Though given his love of musicals, singing and dancing, we're wondering if he maybe pulled out the big guns with a flash mob?? But then, this guy's way too modest for that.
