Elton John and George Michael mend rift
Gay music legends Sir Elton John and George Michael appear to have ended their rift.
Sir Elton fumed at Michael earlier this year after the former WHAM” front man blamed the Rocket Man for his problems with drugs.
Michael told the Parkinson show, “Unfortunately every artist nowadays has a soap opera and it’s decided where they’re going to be in that, the trajectory of my particular soap opera launched from that statement Elton made about 18 months ago when he hadn’t seen me for years.
“For some reason, from that point on, I’ve been trying to prove that I’m not really miserable. That unfortunately made me really vulnerable to the press.”
In 2004, Sir Elton told the newspapers: “George is in a strange place. There appears to be deep-rooted unhappiness in his life.”
Sir Elton was angry at being blamed for the star crashing his vehicle into three cars on Easter Sunday.
However, all now seems to have been forgiven after Sir Elton this week told the The Sun: “I’m so thrilled that George is back out on tour putting on a great show.
“When I did that interview saying I thought George should get out more, I just meant he should get back on stage doing what he does best.”
George Michael is currently on his first tour for 15 years. The UK dates so far have been considered a success.
