Elton Banned From Egypt Over Jesus Christ Comments
Officials at Egypt's Music Union have banned the gay Brit from performing at an upcoming show, claiming he insulted Middle Easterners with his remarks.
In a Parade interview, which was published in America in February, Elton suggested Jesus was a "super-intelligent gay man" and then took aim at the Middle East, stating, "Try being a gay woman in the Middle East - you're as good as dead."
The singer/songwriter was scheduled to perform in Egypt on 18 May (10).
