Elton John’s baby is too controversial for Arkansas

UPDATE: Harps Food reports that it has uncovered Elton and his family.
_______________
RadarOnline reports that covers of US Weekly, with Elton John, husband, and their child on it, have been covered up in supermarkets in Arkansas, “to protect young shoppers.”

I’m sorry, I know a number of you are from the South, but why does this bigoted, backwards, narrow-minded behavior nearly always happen down there?

Elton John + David Furnish Welcome Baby Boy Zachary

If you're as surprised as we, there's a reason: John and Furnish had not revealed they were expecting.

Elton John to Play Concert to Benefit Challenge of Proposition 8

Elton John is set to play a concert at the "Green Acres" estate of Ron Burkle in Beverly Hills to benefit the American Foundation for Equal Rights.

Said Chad Griffin, Board President of AFER: “We are deeply honored to have the support of Sir Elton John. The American Foundation for Equal Rights stands for the enduring principle that all Americans are created equal, and believes that ending state-sanctioned discrimination is a critical step we must take toward ending the hate crimes and suicides that continue to claim the lives of young Americans.”

The concert is set to take place on January 19th. All proceeds will support the American Foundation for Equal Rights, the sole sponsor of the Perry case, which is being argued by the Foundation's legal team headed by Theodore Olson and David Boies, the opposing attorneys in the Bush v Gore case that decided the presidency. The American Foundation for Equal Rights is a 501c3 non-profit organization.

Ticket information is available by contacting events@afer.org.

Perry v. Schwarzenegger, the federal challenge that AFER is pursuing against Proposition 8, goes before the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on December 6.

Elton John on Why He Sang for Rush

Maybe Rush Limbaugh Got Elton John To Perform At His Wedding With Some Nose Candy

All it takes to keep Elton John's tiny dancers dancing is a little cocaine, the singer says in a new documentary Madman Across The Water: The Making Of Elton John. Three Dog Night's Danny Hutton "might have forgot to tell him" about he sprinkled the singer's dinner to keep him playing the piano at a party. "I left at 7.30 in the morning and I thought, 'I've never stayed up until 7.30 before but I feel really good!,'" says Elton. "Years later I learned they had put cocaine in my food." And all along I thought Elton's stamina was derived from checks with sizable zeroes.

Elton John Already Knows You’re Adopting Lady Gaga’s New Single As Your Gay Anthem

Elton John is so convinced Lady Gaga's third studio album Born This Way is gonna rock your glittery disco ball world, it's given him reason to dismiss Gloria Gaynor: "Her record—it’s fucking amazing. ‘Born This Way,’ which is the title song, will completely get rid of Gloria Gaynor’s ‘I Will Survive.’ This is the new ‘I Will Survive.’ That was the gay anthem. This is the new gay anthem. Actually, it’s not a gay anthem—it can apply to anybody." Preemptively declaring a song the new gay anthem? Isn't that what Katy Perry tried to do with "Peacock"? How about we let the shirtless club kids pick their own playlist and go from there, okay Elton?
