You probably have a story or two to share when you’ve lived as long as Elton John and have been in the spotlight for the most of your life.
It should come as no surprise that many of the most senior figures in the erratic and unpredictable world of celebrity entertainment have a veritable secret file. It’s also not all that strange that a lot of these findings at some time become public knowledge.
Nonetheless, the existence of celebrities and celebrities cannot be contested.That is to say, there are stages in the game that distinguish between people who are extraordinary superstars and people who are afraid to walk down a busy street for fear of being recognized.
It’s safe to argue that Elton John belongs in the latter group. This may be the reason why so many people were interested in his memoir, Me, when it was released.
The book Me had a plethora of assertions made by the well-known vocalist, as well as repeated tales and humorous, surprising, and distressing experiences.
However, what has gone viral online are his remarks about the late Michael Jackson, the King of Pop.
Before describing how the years had altered theThriller singer in a variety of negative ways, John recounted how he had first encountered Jackson when the latter was still a small child.
Elton writes, “I’d known Michael since he was 13 or 14.”He was the cutest child you could ever meet. However, he began withdrawing from the outside world and reality at some time during the intervening years, just like Elvis Presley did.
Elton continued by reaffirming his suspicion that Jackson’s long-term usage of prescription medications may have played a major role in his metamorphosis.
“I don’t know what was going through his mind,” Elton went on, “or how many prescription drugs he was taking, but every time I saw him in his later years, I left feeling like the poor guy had completely lost it.”
The musician of Your Song continued, saying, “I don’t mean that in a joking sense. He was a very deranged individual who was unsettling to be around.
Even now, many years after his death, Jackson’s name has never truly been freed from the dark cloud of sexual assault allegations against youngsters, which generated an unfortunate media storm.
John stated plainly, “For whatever reason, he couldn’t seem to cope with the adult company at all,” in response to those rumors.
The 75-year-old John has experienced some health problems recently.
He was obliged to postpone and reschedule many of the dates on his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour until 2023 in an attempt to facilitate his recuperation.
There were rumors circulating earlier this week that Elton had turned down a chance to play at King Charles’ coronation ball. He is well-known for singing “Candle in the Wind” at Princess Diana’s burial, but he has said that he would not be attending the event to formally recognize her ex-husband as the new English monarch.
