How much money would it take to get you to toss your principles out the door? Well, if you’re Elton John and you’ve spent your life as an out homosexual who fights for AIDS-related causes and advocates gay marriage, it turns out you’re willing to throw that all away for a cool million. In this irony-filled story, John reportedly accepted a $1 million paycheck from world famous homophobe and hate-spewer Rush Limbaugh to be the singer at Limbaugh’s fourth wedding. It reminds us of Indecent Proposal, when Robert Redford offered Demi Moore a million dollars to sleep with him, only in this case, John didn’t desperately need the money, and Limbaugh is certainly no Robert Redford. Oh, and in the film, Demi Moore didn’t have millions of fans who felt effed over by her hypocrisy. Seriously, Elton - what were you thinking?
Since we weren’t there, we can only imagine the scene: John and U.S. Representative Michele Bachmann doing a raucous rendition of “Don’t Go Breakin’ My Heart,” John singing “The Circle Of Life” while Limbaugh holds his new wife (who is 26 years younger than he) up to the crowd, Lion King-style. Oh, to be a fly on that conservative wall.
