Elton John’s mother Sheila Farebrother, 85, is downsizing and she’s unloading a forty year collection of her famous son’s memorabilia. She’s not having a yard sale – it’ll be at the Gorringes auction house in Sussex on October 19, but Elton’s fans are in for a treat. Dozens of gold and platinum discs are up for sale as well as tour jackets and VIP backstage passes that Sheila used to get into his concerts, plus magazines and other odds and ends. Music industry experts predict there will be worldwide demand for these rare items because they belonged to Elton’s mother.

    Why would his Mother unload this stuff? Sounds like rubbish to me.

    She’s not auctioning off memories, she’s auctioning off stuff. People who think they are the same thing end up on “Hoarders.”

    Say hello to your look in 10 years, Hillary Clinton.

    Does she have the wrapping from Elton’s first package of Crisco?

    Love Elton, love his music. He is truly the Liberace of his time when it comes to music,
    and all the beautiful trinkets that he has collected over the years. I am quite sure that he has a museum of collectibles that is absolutely priceless.

    Wow, Leo! “He is the Liberace of his time when it comes to music.”

    Think you managed to insult both Elton and Liberace with that comment.

    she must still be in terrible paines because she gave birth to a sick FAGGOT instead of a healthy hetero sexual!!!!

    I have to disagree with you Captain, she’s probably happy he didn’t kill himself like the guy did the other day.

    Anonymouth, what you said about Hillary Clinton was too funny. I can’t understand why Hil has not gotten much needed surgery. Her parts are going south fast, and I do believe she can afford it.

  12. By strom

    Hillary and Elton have much in common!

  13. By zippy

    I’m sorry but which one did you say was the mother?

  14. By SebastianCanada
    On October 1, 2010 at

    Indy, why shoud Hillary get surgery? She is an incredibly intelligent and accomplished woman.

    Anyway, I thought you would be completely opposed to plastic surgery. What will happen on the day of Judgement, when the dead rise up? All those bits and pieces removed through plastic surgery will be flying about like snowflakes in a squall, trying to find their rightful owners.

  15. By Indy
    On October 1, 2010 at

    Sebastian: I never said I approve or disapprove of surgery, but leaning to not approving. Hillary needs at least botox, smoothers, fillers, whatever, because she looks tired all the time. And that is because she IS tired and droopy all the time, what with constantly crossing time zones and meeting with country leaders and presidents. She at least needs to look refreshing, even if she isn’t. Anyhoo, I can’t stand the liberal bitch. Bill Clinton has slyly indicated she is a lesbian.

    As to the Rapture (I guess you were referring to), the parts of someone don’t have to fly together). There is not enough space to continue this long subject which few understand and believe anyway.

  16. By Anonymouth
    On October 1, 2010 at

    Bill’s sly hint:

    “Hillary gets more pussy than I do!”

    (No mean feat)

  17. By Reta
    On October 1, 2010 at

    Sebastian, thank you once more for being the voice of reason in a sea of dunces. Hil does NOT “need” surgery. She looks just fine for her age. People look like who they are, and that IS her FACE. She has obviously accepted herself, as have I, without cutting twisting pulling hacking and stitching. I admire her for being who she is and love Bill mucho! My ex mother in law is his cousin (on his father’s side) so that’s cool!

  18. By strom
    On October 1, 2010 at

    Yep….Hillary was a notorious muff diver when Bill was the Guv….doubt anything has changes but discresion.

  19. By Indy
    On October 1, 2010 at

    Anonymouth: I heard/read slick Willie say this exact sentence, (quote..unquote…word for word). So they have a unique understanding and will never divorce; they like this arrangement. The biggest story EVER would be for her to get caught in a umm compromising position. (Sorry all; I know this is a tad off-subject).

    PS: Regarding Hil getting a little facial nip and tuck. I just think it would be good for her not to look so tired with jowls hanging down when she should look sharp and rested, since she has so many world events going on with all the meetings, etc. Men (no matter how important) take note of appearances.

  20. By SebastianCanada
    On October 1, 2010 at

    Guys, I think most worldly intelligent people have figured out that Hillary is…uhm… leading a life separate – though not dissimilar – to Bill’s.

    I think the proof is that Hillary did not get the Presidential nomination. That was all pre-arranged, and basically due to blackmail (the Clinton’s were warned not to get too far back into government – e.g. Hilary becoming prez – or all would be exposed).

  21. By SebastianCanada
    On October 1, 2010 at

    And this is where a more intelligent version of Strom might write:

    So, RE the presidency, some blackmail lead to some black male.

  22. By Reta
    On October 1, 2010 at

    Sebastian, I don’t for a second believe that either Hilary is a lesbian OR that they have any such arranged marraige. As for what “Indy” quotes above, the whole “quote” makes no sense whatsoever. Either you weren’t listening correctly or you can’t get the words down correctly because it makes absolutely NO sense! When you say “word for word” and then refer to Bill calling themseves “they” that just doesn’t make any sense. WHAT exactly was it that Bill supposedly SAID???? EXACT QUOTE:

  23. By Anonymouth
    On October 2, 2010 at

    Reta: I think Indy was referring to the quote of Bill’s which I quoted (anonymouthly 🙂 );that quote has been reported widely.

    Sebby: Bill Clinton has never been “outside” politics virtually his entire life—nor will he or his family members ever be. There is substantial reason to believe that he is a so-called “illegitimate” son of the Rockefellers (trust, Arkansas is A LOT more than humidity and chicken shit).

    And a not un-common dynamic in some marriages, is that the wife becomes more of a mother to her husband, than any thing else. Ronald Reagan called Nancy “Mommy.” Hillary’s private life will never be an issue, simply because she’s doing a serviceable job for the people who hired her…all the “retail politicking” is just for show—for us unwashed masses LOL.

  24. By Indy
    On October 2, 2010 at

    I honestly thought everyone knew (or at least highly suspected) that Hillary was a lesbo. She just has the money and the goons and the gofers to protect her. It’s all over YouTube and the internet. Plus those mannish suits she wears does not help her case either. Soon I suspect Bill may be getting so senile that HE will just out her, because it’s obvious that she won’t come out. There have been sworn reports from gal friends of dalliances. But, what the heck, that’s her sordid life and we will just have to wait until the Enquirer or Star is in the right place at the right time to catch her. That would be even more of a story than Hussein Obama’s affair with Larry Sinclair.

  25. By Indy
    On October 2, 2010 at

    ^^^ALSO….Hil has ridden in gay/lesbian pride parades for years, in L.A., San Fran, Wash,DC, and NYC. She has had pflag, glbt paries in White House several times and is outspoken about being pro-gay marriage. I can’t figure out why she won’t come out of the closet, since liberals et al think it is so cool and hip to be gay and lesbian.

  26. By SebastianCanada
    On October 2, 2010 at

    Anonymouth, RE Bill being outside politics: Exactly, the deal at the end of his presidency was that he and Hil would go away quietly. At most, say, Hil could get into politics, but could never try to be president or vice president (abracadabra, Hilary is now Secretary of State – she pushed it right to the line).

    Indy, prejudice does not die that easily. Sure there are many so-called liberals who support the gay cause, but many of those people would not want to sit down to dinner with a gay couple, or live next door to one. Don’t believe that? Just ask an African American person if (s)he feels completely accepted all the time, or if (s)he does not feel that race is an issue.

  27. By Anonymouth
    On October 2, 2010 at

    Well, Seb, if the Clintons had agreed to “go away quietly” someone must have forgotten to tell Bill and Hillary about that deal.

    “After moving to the state of New York, Clinton was elected as a U.S. Senator in 2000. That election marked the first time an American First Lady had run for public office.”

    The Clintons bought in a house in Chappaqua, NY with the express purpose of qualifying Hil for the Senate—WHILE THEY STILL OCCUPIED THE WHITE HOUSE. There was nothing secret or underhanded about their future plans.

    NY embraced Hillary’s candidacy (which was helped in no small measure by Rudy Giuliani’s dropping out because of cancer and the death of John Kennedy Jr in a plane crash—just prior to his expected announcement that he was intending to run).

  28. By SebastianCanada
    On October 3, 2010 at

    Anonymouth, as I said in an earlier post, a line was drawn for Bill and Hill. Neither was ever to enter the whitehouse as either president or vice president. No one would be so unrealistic as to cut a deal with the Clinton’s in which they would completely retire from political life – both are fame whores, it would never happen.

    NY may have embraced Hillary’s candidacy for senate, but, as neo-cons point out NY is certainly NOT America.

    Hillary’s entering of the presidential race was either an all out con, or a case of the Clinton’s trying to push it, break the agreement, and then either backing down or being kicked down.

    Uh, how did we get from Elton John’s mother to Bill and Hilary Clinton? I didn’t bring enough bread crumbs with me to find my way back.

  30. By Indy
    On October 4, 2010 at

    Denise: Yes, true. I think it started when Anonymouth said Hillary will look like this old lady in 10 years. I MAY (lol) have not been able to shut my mouth (I mean fingers) and I just had to write something…..so therefore, I guess we just couldn’t help ourselves.

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?


    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
