    Can you break it down? Did his mother rejected him for being gay? Was she the female version of Joe Jackson?

    He said she was very critical on everything. So is he.

    In other words, it always starts at the home. Poor Reginald (that's his real in case some didn't know)... I often wonder why most parents have to act so "tough" for everybody, without knowing or wouldn't even care what effect it may have on their children. That's how bullying starts right there, and it's getting worse...

    Wow, I wonder how Michael even deal with these people, I'll never know. To some degree, I know where he's coming from. Most adults out here are even worse than children. Look who we got in the White House. In his own way, Elton is just as bad as Trump. How many diapers they need before they realize they need to grow up?!

    I don't have a Twitter account, but could someone on here at least inform Taj about this?

    People are reporting that this story taking place in early 1994. If so, truly deplorable from Elton to be telling this story given everything Michael was going through.

    Check out Tina Turner talking about Elton John back in 2000:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aj4kkQJYSlU

    That was another clue about Elton being a drama queen. Michael, more power to you!

    What i find stupid is there are only 5 sites gossip talkin about Elton's Tina incident while 16 sites talk about this with Michael. Only these gossip trash care about this. Not the overall public. Elton is NOT MJ nor had to deal with the trash like Michael. Plus Elton is no doctor. Who cares what he thinks.

    I think the jealousy thing is probably spot on, correct me if I'm wrong but how many number 1 songs did Elton have, was it just the one? For some reason he seems to think that he sang at Diana's funeral he's the best, how very wrong can one person be

    This. Elton’s lack of empathy is disturbing. Obviously, it’s been a stressful situation for him, introducing his then boyfriend to his mother, and that may have influenced his perception of everything else that was going on. But no matter what actually happened that day: when you write your memoir, it’s time to step back a little, look at the bigger picture and put your experiences and feelings into context. Phrases like “at the time I felt …” and “… as I found out later …” would have helped to tell his story without badmouthing someone who was going through difficult times.

    Since Elton John was writing an autobiography, he had to tell that story. It concerned introducing his boyfriend to his mother, it was hilariously awful, and Michael Jackson was the distraction that probably made the whole situation work in John's and Furnish's favor.

    Oh indeed?!

    Elton John settles sexual harassment case with British male employee

    Sir Elton John has reportedly paid a former British male employee a six-figure sum to settle a sexual harassment case.

    The unnamed British male was dismissed by the Rocket Man singer in mid-2015 and he launched legal action against Elton and two of his companies for unfair dismissal and sex discrimination, including allegations of sexual misconduct in August.

    Elton reportedly paid a six-figure sum to settle the case out of court in February, and the employee withdrew his claim.

    And he wasn't even facing a possible criminal trial, with a civil proceeding overtaking it risking his chance to a fair trial, so basically forced to settle like MJ was. As for making sure to clear his name: not only did he settle, he also tried to block the reportings on the case (just failed).

    For the record: I'm in no way saying he's guilty, just how settling a case isn't a clear-cut issue and how often innocent people/entities do settle in reality.

    I have only swear words to say, about Elton John. He has always been like this - it's only now that MJ fans are beginning to realise it.

    I don’t know much about him as a person, and after reading that short excerpt from his memoir, I’m currently not inclined to change that anytime soon.

    Just out of curiosity. Would anybody here still listen to some of Elton John's music at all, or would you boycott him completely?



    For me, it's going to be a struggle to give up listening to him at all if i must, because of Rocketman. His bio. was so strengthening to me and i really do like how Taron edgerton portrayed him.

    I will, he has a great catalogue, no doubt about that and I don't agree with the cancel culture anyway (even though there must be a level when indeed you can't separate the art and the artist anymore). Plus I mostly prefer his 70-80s work when he wasn't yet that bitchy (or at least he didn't show this side of him, haha. Actually quite a lot of celebrity exposed themselves as ignorant, judgemental or even plain dumb during these years of social media). So those songs don't really have sour feelings attached to them.

    It's just very disappointing that him of all people had to mock someone for being somewhat "different", especially disregarding the fact what MJ went through at the time. And stoop so low as to mock someone's appearance. He really should know better...
