Scissor Sisters frontman Jake Shears is "naive" about his relationship with SIR Elton John, according to singer Andy Bell.
Music legend John teamed up with Shears to pen the band's hit track I Don't Feel Like Dancing and the pair have become close pals since.
But former Erasure frontman Bell believe Shears is naive about the friendship.
He says, "I do get slight envy because of the Scissor Sisters' mass exposure. I recorded one song with (Jake), and we were on the subway afterwards and his phone rang. I asked who it was and he said, 'Elton'.
"He's got a hotline to Elton John, and I thought, 'How sweet,' because you can see the naivety. At the moment he's feeling like everybody is his best friend, and it's not really like that."
