to wish that Elton John would disappear up his own jacksie?

I cant stand him, i remember my mum and dad having the 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road' album in the 70's, and I liked alot of the tracks. He looked pretty normal back then.
Its just his manner, his fake accent which slips into americanism. arghhhhhhhhhhh. so its your birthday you egocentric arse, who gives a monkeys.

I think you're very unreasonable. Elton John is much too fat to disappear up his own jacksi. Suggest something more practical, such as disappearing up an elephant's jacksi. I was thinking along those lines when listening to him singing an old English hymn at the FA Cup Final. "Abaaad wiyuth me"

I think he's now got so much status in the music industry that he's entitled to act like a complete diva.
I also think he's done fantastic work for people with Aids via his foundation.
I presume the fact that his birthday party is being televised is because it is a charitable event, and anyone who is anyone will be attending?

Elton was talented, but has descended into irretrievable luvviedom, inhabiting a world where only Victoria Beckham, Liz Hurley and PartnerDavidFurnish and their ilk are allowed to visit. He has become a professional Queen, swearing and poncing about all the time, pausing only to become godfather to another celebridee babe or to lay on a show in Vegas.
BTW, what is it about the trinity of John, Beckham and Hurley that makes me want to lash out irrationally? Do you think they have any other friends, or are they just always on the phone to each other, lunching together and getting their hair done en masse? Pah! Phoney bores that are already a very long way up their own arses. Don't worry, I'm sure they will disappear up there soon enough.

Wow that must have been atmospheric rhuby - the Bay of Naples, the towering mountain, Elton John...
In his favour, Are You Ready For Love is dd's "song" and means a lot to us for all sorts of reasons
But otherwise I am there with Neil Tennant: "Sac-er-if-ice? That's not a word, is it?"
MPDF, so where do you stand on Mika? Or maybe I should rephrase that...
