Sir Elton John must get a lot of gifts from friends and admirers, but one he got from Eminem is certainly a story worth telling.

The Rocket Man opened up on Friday night’s episode of the Graham Norton Show about the sex-themed, very expensive gift he got from the rap star.

Sir Elton chatted with Pink about Eminem when the got the civil partnership gift from Eminem after he partnered with David Furnish.

He also addressed accusations of homophobia against Eminem due to his use of anti-gay slurs in his lyrics.

Sir Elton told Pink and Norton: “He was accused of being homophobic by so many people because of his lyrics, which I thought was nonsense.

“I came out and supported the fact that he isn’t [homophobic] and I appeared on the Grammys with him, doing ‘Stan’.

“Instead of [the song’s original vocalist] Dido. I was the one who took the ‘L’ out of Dido!”

Adding: “We became friends. We’ve been amazing friends ever since. He’s an amazing guy. I interviewed him last week for a magazine.

“I just adore him… When David [Furnish] and I did our civil partnership, I got this package from Eminem. It shows you how homophobic he isn’t! It had two diamond-encrusted cock rings on velvet cushions. I have to say, they have remained unused!”

Though Sir Elton is currently married to his long-time partner David Furnish, it was not the first time the music legend tied the knot. 

Before coming out as gay, the musician had a turbulent and short-lived marriage to sound engineer Renate Blauel, whom he married in Australia in 1984.

The Rocket Man singer was close friends with the Princess prior to her tragic death 20 years ago today, in 1997.

The pair both worked during the AIDS crisis to challenge the public perception of HIV/AIDS, with their high-profile action helping to change the way the public saw the crisis.

Taking to Instagram, Sir Elton shared a vintage snap with the late Princess.

He also took on a Republican lawmaker who suggested that people living with HIV should be “quarantined” to stop it spreading.

The suggestion comes from Rep. Betty Price, an official in the Georgia House of Representatives.
