6. Elvis Strung Out On “Music”

The King most certainly DID NOT appreciate the tabloid rumors that claimed that he was “strung out” on all sorts of drugs, and he made his displeasure known during at 1974 performance in (where else?) Las Vegas. Insisting that the movie mags are all “junk,” he went on to make some unique threats towards the gossip hounds who slandered his name all over the place. He died a drug related death three years later.

Highlights: “If I find or hear the individual that said that about me, I’m gonna break your goddamn neck, you son of a bitch!”

“I will pull your goddamn tongue out by the roots! Thank you very much.”

5. Elton John: Tantrums and Tiaras 

Captain Fantastic is very aware of his own penchant for diva-esque behavior from time to time, and it was with his blessing that his partner David Furnish filmed this behind-the-scenes documentary Tantrums and Tiaras. Although somewhat light on the tantrums, it does open with this priceless tirade against some hapless PA who accidentally left his clothes at his hotel before a video shoot.

Highlights: “I get up at seven o’clock in the morning and some f–king person leaves my f–king clothes in the car. What the f–k is going on!?”

“I hate f–king videos. They’re f–king loathsome, and I tell you this: I am not doing this video.”
