Elton John came under fire when he agreed to perform at Rush Limbaugh‘s wedding earlier this year, but in an interview with the Telegraph, John defends his actions and says he did it in an effort to change Limbaugh’s mind about gay marriage. As another example of unlikely friendships, John mentioned Eminem, saying that he thinks their 2001 Grammy performance and subsequent friendship helped Eminem overcome his homophobia. As proof, Elton says that for his own civil partnership ceremony, Eminem “gave David [Furnish] and me two diamond-encrusted cock-rings.” Stars – they’re just like us! Am I right? And, you know, it’s so nice when your friends know you well enough to go off the registry.
The rest of the interview is a great read if you’re into Elton John and want to read about all the benders he went on in the 1970s and how nowadays he refuses to own a cell phone or computer. We’re guessing he has no problem with the relative low-tech-ness of his special wedding gift though. Although the scratching potential just seems dangerous.
