ELTON JOHN HAS COME TO HIS SENSES

When Elton John announced that he’d cast Tom Hardy to star in his own biopic Rocketman, we thought he’d lost his mind. Of ALL people – Mad Max hunk Tom Hardy? It would be the HEIGHT of vanity. Hardy was up for the challenge, but Elton eventually came back to reality and settled on Kingsman series star Taron Egerton, 28, (above) who’s shorter and can also SING. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Taron is already recording songs for the movie. Elton’s husband David Furnish is producing the movie and we imagine they must have had SOME fun holding auditions for the Elton role.

ELTON JOHN’S FANCY SCHMANCY VACATION

AG080957_07eltoncut

Elton John and David Furnish took their two boys Zachary and Elijah to St Tropez for their yearly vacation. Elton is looking very blonde – the foursome and their entourage spent time on fabulous billionaires’ yachts (hence the life vests) and evenings in fancy restaurants. The kids would probably rather be at Disneyland.

IT’S TIME FOR ELTON JOHN TO SHUT HIS BIG MOUTH

AG064398_01elton

Okay, so Dolce and Gabbana aren’t fans of IVF or gay families created using IVF – even though they are gay themselves. Aren’t they allowed to have an opinion- however much we may disagree with them? Ryan Murphy seems to be leading the charge against anyone who implies they do not fully support gays – although it seems he couldn’t care less about any one else marginalized – women, blacks, whatever. Let’s face it, women have always supported gays far more than gays have supported women. Certain gay celebrities seem to be LOOKING for imagined slights so they can loudly complain and incite action. Calling for a boycott against anyone who doesn’t agree with you is absurd. A personal boycott makes sense if you’re fanatical, but to try and destroy the business of someone who doesn’t share your ideals is vindictive. Get OVER yourself, Elton. If gay people can’t criticize gays, imagine what would happen if a straight person – or heaven forbid, a woman, did.

Guess who surprised everyone by turning up early at the American Film Market in Santa Monica? Elton John and Tom Hardy, the actor who’s is portraying him in the film biography Rocketman. The unlikely pair were promoting their movie, which starts filming next year. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hardy is getting in the mood to play the iconic singer by wearing his clothes! Yes, he’s been checking out and trying out some of Elton favorite outfits. Do you suppose it’s possible they wear the SAME SIZE?

ELTON JOHN CHOSE TOM HARDY TO STAR IN HIS LIFE STORY

The mystery is solved. We were STAGGERED when we heard that hunkalicious Tom Hardy was cast to star in Elton John’s life story called Rocketman. Of ALL people! This is far bigger casting news than “Fifty Shades of Grey.” The dangerously handsome Hardy usually plays a tough guy or villain so this is really a stretch for him. Plus, he’s got a full head of hair! We couldn’t IMAGINE whose bright idea this was so we did a little research and learned that Elton and his husband David Furnish are producing the movie and THEY decided Hardy was perfect for the role! The two of them must be giggling their heads off somewhere…

A DAY AT THE BEACH WITH THE ELTON JOHN FAMILY

On August 1, Elton John had an appendectomy just in the nick of time. He’s been recovering at his home in Nice for the past few weeks and finally felt well enough to spend a day at the beach in St Tropez with his husband David Furnish and their two boys. Their sons, Zachary, 2, and Elijah, 7 months, look more like Elton every day! We wonder how many assistants, nannies, and bodyguards it takes to accomplish a maneuver like this.

ELTON JOHN’S LIFE STORY MIGHT BE MORE INTERESTING THAN YOU THINK!

Hot on the heels of the successful ”Behind the Candelabra” Liberace story, we hear that a musical fantasy version of Elton John’s life called “Rocketman” is in the works. Historically however, life stories with the approval of the central figure are never as hot and juicy as those written by someone like Scott Thorson. Elton would like to see sexy actor Tom Hardy play him or perhaps Justin Timberlake. We think Adam Lambert might be the perfect choice. After Elton’s gone, maybe David Furnish will write a tell-all book and THAT’S the movie we’d like to see!

A CHIC VACATION FOR ELTON JOHN AND NEIL PATRICK HARRIS

Heads turn in the streets of St Tropez as proud daddies Elton John and Neil Patrick Harris vacation together with their partners and kids. Elton and David Furnish are pushing their son Zachary in a stroller while Neil and David Burtka roll with their twins Harper and Gideon. The two families are enjoying a visit in the fashionable seaside town while the little boys have a long play date. Looks like fun. Did Elton have his hair highlighted to look like Zachary?

ELTON JOHN’S HIGH PRICED HISSY FIT

Elton John’s audience got more – or less- than they bargained for at his Million Dollar Piano show at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace Friday. According to Norm Clarke, Elton seemed angry at his management team and cursed them out using x-rated language, suggesting that someone was getting “f—ing fired.” Four times he took a sip from a container of water and hurled it on the stage, splashing all over. Guys with mops came out each time to clean up. He started the show 20 minutes late and ended about 25 minutes early. Before he left he snarled and tossed his stool, and didn’t return for an encore. All this and tickets cost $80 to $700.

ELTON JOHN JUST BOUGHT OUR DREAM HOUSE

Elton John and David Furnish have put their Sierra Towers condo on the market because they’ve made a very special purchase. The Trousdale section of Beverly Hills is our favorite because most of the homes are sprawling and magnificent mid-century modern gems built in the optimistic 1960’s. Case Study homes – easily the most beautiful architectural specimens in all of Southern California. Elton’s 4200 sq ft house house has 4 bedrooms and 5.5 baths surrounded by walls of glass and a sweeping view of the city. It has been tastefully and lovingly updated with white oak floors replacing the terrazzo and the asking price was $7,695,000. Some people have all the luck…
