Elton John’s Adoption Request Denied

Par2767153

Superstar Elton John has spoken of his intention to adopt. The legendary rock star said 14-month-old boy Lev had “stolen his heart” when he met him on a visit to his orphanage in Ukraine, as part of a trip with his charity AIDS foundation. “David (Furnish) always wanted to adopt a child and I always said ‘no’ because I am 62 and I think because of the traveling I do and the life I have, maybe it wouldn’t be fair for the child,” he said.

“But having seen Lev today, I would love to adopt him. I don’t know how we do that but he has stolen my heart. And he has stolen David’s heart and it would be wonderful if we can have a home. I’ve changed my mind today.”

The singer’s adoption request has been negged by the Ukrainian government due to a  law which prevents unmarried couples from adopting. But wait – Elton and Furnish married in the UK in 2005.  Lame move, Ukraine!  [Photo: AFP]

2009 VMAs ROUND-UP: Highlights, Lowlives and Gaga

During last night’s rousing 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, myself (along with some fellow VH1 bloggers) spent the better part of the evening “Live-Tweeting” the event from the comfort of our sad little homes. This did not prevent me from wearing my finest (crotchless) gown and enjoying the show more than I’m comfortable admitting. Below, I’ve reprinted my tweet-cap from last night, along with some all new and pretty special photos, comparisons, live performances and highlights.

Susan Boyle Covers The Stones; Mick Jagger Rolls Over in Living Grave

Bet you thought you’d never hear the words Susan Boyle again, right? Wrong. She’s back. And hello, of course she’s back! After all, her handlers bought her a comb. A comb. You think they’re going to let that go to waste? Unlikely.

Boyle is back! And much like those other kinds of boils, the ones that are warm, tender, and full of pus, it seems that Susan will be equally hard to get rid of. Today, we get her latest project: A cover of The Rolling Stones song “Wild Horses”. Just because Mick Jagger is still alive doesn’t mean he can’t do some competitive grave rolling while listening. I love heavy-handed elevator muzak as much as the next musical theater fan, but she honestly sounds like a deranged elderly woman singing to herself after accidentally getting locked in her local market’s meat locker. And that ain’t right.

And after listening to this, I would honestly like to beg wild horses to drag me away. It. is. that. bad.

6. HE’S GONE FULL RETARD We’re actually serious about this.

Read this and cry a blood tear that this man is definitely wealthier than you are:

Style Wars: Lauren Conrad Vs. Kristin Cavallari

They may not be on the same show anymore, but rivals Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari still have to come to the same events and compete for camera time. At last night’s VMAs, Cavallari stuck to the shiny theme that so many others were enamored by (en-armored by? ‘Cause it looks like — nevermind), going for a tight disco ball minidress, while LC opted for a demure “I’m totally more mature than that lying skank” look. Was LC’s look too blah, or was Kristin just one of the many sequined starlets? Who turned more heads before heading back to “The Hills?” And most importantly, can you feel the rain on your skin?

Who needs Ed Hardy? Jon Gosselin is going to start his own clothing line. “I’m doing a line called “Gosselin Gear,” Jon told The FABlife while hanging out at the Hotel on Rivington House of Hype post-VMA party.  As for that rumored line with Ed Hardy owner Christian Audigier? “I think Christian just used me to get publicity,” Jon told us.

How about the rest of his life? “I’ll be officially divorced in a couple days,” Jon said gladly. Although he and Kate Gosselin are hammering out custody issues, Jon was in good spirits and also confirmed that things with him and girlfriend Hailey Glassman are “great.” [Photo: Getty Images]
