    But he doesn’t mind performing with the winner of the X Factor at a New Year’s show.

    Just like says he is opposed to homophobia but doesn’t mind performing with Eminem only weeks after his album was released which contained the lyrics ‘Do I hate fags? The answer is yes!’

    Just like he doesn’t mind spending millions pounds to throw a party to raise funds for Aids rather than simply donate the money.

    This is the man who spends hundreds of thousands of pounds a year on flowers.

    I hardly think his opinion should be taken seriously on anything. He seems like a total fake.

  2. This is actually one of Elton’s more sensible comments.

  3. Adrian T – that is assuming he’s not simply listing two things he’d like to do in order of preference! ;)
    Actually I did hear a news cutting read out on Mark Radcliffe’s radio show some while back about this very fetish!
    A man and his wife who liked their sex a bit kinky spread peanut butter on his private parts, and ushered in the family Alsatian to lick it off. Regretably for the man in question, the alsation had the kind of appetite that peanut butter alone couldn’t satisfy. I think he qualified for an honorary Darwin award that year for taking himself out of the genepool. Don’t know if it was just an urban myth, but it made me laugh anyhow!

  4. Thanks for that delightful story flapjack, just what I need to read before teatime

  5. What can I say?
    Seeing as Elton already brought the subject up it seemed like the closest thing to an appropriate time for that anecdote!
    Hope I didn’t put you off your dinner ;)

    The chance of ANYBODY wanting to bite Elton John’s cock – alsation, human or whatever – has got to be completely remote.

  7. I am reminded of Will Self who once offered the comment:

    “I’d rather slice off my own buttocks, varnish them and sell them in a provincial gift shop”.


  8. i hate x factor and all them shows we have not had a GOOD christmas number one for ages because of them lol

  9. Matthew – have to agree with you there mate.
    I heard someone on BBC Breakfast news this morning try to insist that Alexandra’s version of “Hallelujah” which won was MORE emotional than Jeff Buckley’s version, which leaves it for dead as far as I’m concerned.
    I guess the pundit they chose equates having an over the top 100 piece orchestra and a wannabe Aretha Franklin impersinator with channeling more raw emotion than one guy with an acoustic guitar on the basis of scale alone. Subtlety doesn’t come into the equation. What utter balls!
    Both versions had me in tears, but for very different reasons!
