    Elton John has cancelled all of his upcoming concerts in Las Vegas after contracting a rare and “potentially deadly” infection while touring in South America. A representative for John said Monday that the 70-year-old “Rocket Man” Grammy-winner would no longer be able to honor the April and May dates of his Las Vegas residency, “The Million Dollar Piano,” due to an extended stay in a hospital recovering from the rare illness. “During a recent, successful tour of South America, Elton contracted a harmful and unusual bacterial infection,” the singer’s representative said in a statement obtained by People magazine. “During his...

    While there are few actually confirmed details as of now, there's apparently a massive, star-studded "We The People" concert being planned for Miami on the day of Donald Trump's inauguration. The idea is to counter Trump's inauguration and garner higher television ratings than the swearing-in. Normally, the presidential inaugurals carry several a-list acts, but Trump has had issues booking artists to perform. So far, the only confirmed acts are Jackie Evancho (singing the National Anthem), the Rockettes, and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Rumored artists include Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Madonna, Lady Gaga, and Elton John. [...]To add insult to injury, concert...

    It is a story of war between two nations, the conflict of love rivals and the looming fate of death. But the antagonistic themes of Aida seem to have spilled into the wings after a student production of the musical Aida was cancelled amid a row over suggestions of “cultural appropriation”. A theatre at the University of Bristol said yesterday it had cancelled all showings after a revolt by students.

    Unless you live under a rock in a very shady part of the forest or in England or Wales, you have no doubt heard of the peculiar domestic arrangements of the world’s most famous gay marriage. The British musician Elton John and his husband David Furnish, who married last December after several years in a civil partnership, have been in tabloid headlines around the world after revelations that Mr Furnish has been involved in trysts with other men. Except, however, in England and Wales, where publication of anything about the sordid affair has been gagged.

    Russian pranksters say they fooled Elton John with Putin call Alexei Stolyarov and Vladimir Krasnov, who are famous for phone impersonations, say singer told them call was ‘most wonderful’ he had received To cynics, it had seemed rather too good to be true: a phone call from Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, to Sir Elton John, singer and LGBT campaigner, about gay rights. Unfortunately for John, it was, in fact, not true: despite an effusive Instagram post in which he thanked the Russian leader for having reached out to him on the issue, it swiftly became clear that, whoever had...

    I guess that's why they call it the blues: Turns out it wasn't Vladimir Putin on the line after all. Two pranksters claimed credit Wednesday for what musician Elton John apparently thought was a phone call from the Russian president. The singer has criticized Putin's "ridiculous" record on gay rights and said he wants to meet with Putin to talk about it. On Tuesday, it looked like there was hope: John posted a photo of Putin on Instagram and thanked him for a phone call. But the Kremlin quickly denied there had been any such conversation. On Wednesday, Vladimir Krasnov,...

    KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — Elton John has called on Ukraine's business leaders to accept gays in the workplace, telling them that policies "designed to repress LGBT citizens ... hinder economic development." John, who is gay and an outspoken activist, spoke to hundreds of business and political leaders at a high-profile forum in Kiev. The singer pointed to studies showing that emerging economies which protect LGBT rights have a higher gross domestic product per capita. He says "so being tolerant and inclusive is not only the morally right thing to do, for the new Ukraine, it's the smart thing to do."

    VENICE, ITALY, August 20, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – British singer Elton John publicly criticized Luigi Brugnaro, the mayor of Venice, for withdrawing several preschool books that promote homosexual behavior to children under the age of six. During the past weekend, John called Brugnaro "extremely silly" and "boorishly bigoted" in an Instagram post. His post also depicted one of the storybooks that, according to the rock star, promotes an “all-inclusive world where families come in all shapes, sizes and colours.” “Instead of encouraging a world based on inclusiveness, tolerance and love, he's championing a future society that's divisive and fosters ignorance,” the...

    Feminist theorist and author Germaine Greer said that the concept of motherhood has been “emptied out” and is “gone” in a lecture on women’s progress at the Hay Literary Festival in Wales on May 23. The outspoken Australian feminist, who once compared motherhood to captivity, critiqued the “concept” of motherhood at a time in which in vitro fertilization (IVF) has become increasingly popular. […] Greer also voiced her disapproval of singer/songwriter Elton John naming his same-sex “wife” David Furnish as the “mother” on their sons’ birth certificates. “Sir Elton John and his ‘wife,’ David Furnish, have entered on the birth...

    Sir Elton John is world famous, deservedly so. This billionaire singer is one of the most creative talents we have. But when he attacks Christian missionaries in Africa and other Third World regions, his message is off-key. Instead of Crocodile Rock, he’s peddling a Crocodile Crock. As a mega-star, Sir Elton is free to say whatever he likes. His native Britain and the U.S. are still free countries. But his belief that the worst thing about AIDS is the “stigma” attached to it is bizarre. We thought the worst thing about AIDS was the disease itself. Even here, however, Sir...
