Who Really Cares About Elton John At Rush Limbaugh’s Wedding?
From the moment I first read about Elton John attending Rush Limbaugh’s recent wedding my eyes began to roll. Never mind that it was immediately followed up with the news that Elton John was “the help” and performed at the wedding for $1M and that people are taking positions on it left and right. The deal is this, it’s not that big a deal, people. Who really cares about Elton John at Rush Limbaugh’s wedding? – Don’t Get Me Started!
Days after the reports of Elton John being at the Limbaugh wedding, there are now reports that Elton John went to the wedding because he’s “about building bridges, not walls.” Ugh. Really Elton John? I get that you have done many humanitarian things in your lifetime and I as well as the rest of the world appreciate all of it but Mr. John, please stop acting as if you’re stopping the flow of oil into the coast when you’re getting paid to sing Benny And The Jets. (Which while we’re on the subject, I think I could win a misconstrued lyric contest with this one as I always thought you were singing, “She’s got electric boobs, her Ma has too!” instead of what the lyric is, “She’s got electric boots, a mohair suit.”) I don’t mind that you went, I especially don’t mind that you got paid but now that you’re acting as if you’re doing something wonderful for the world, you’re starting to get on my nerves. I guess we should look at all the other celebrities who have done so much to “build bridges” too. I don’t know for sure that it’s what George Michael does in every public restroom he goes into blowing straight guys but from all reports he donates a lot of his time to that effort and builds a lot of bridges or at the very least let’s just say he’s “making new friends.”
I feel the same way about the Elton John at Rush Limbaugh’s wedding situation as when CNN had Perez Hilton on as a guest and called him a “Gay Hispanic Trailblazer.” He’s less of a trailblazer and more of a “tailblazer” chafing the hide and getting under the skin of anyone who is a decent human being. If anything he’s done more to push the gay community back into the gag reflex of every person in the world than blaze a trail for Hispanics or gays. If he’s the face of the gay community then I want some serious cosmetic as well as psychological surgery for our community. Even his latest situation where he posted pics of a 17 year old Miley Cyrus getting out of a car and supposedly exposing her “Hannah Mufftana” that people are now saying he should get prison time for distributing child pornography reeks of his being so full up of his own importance more than anything else. It’s a good thing he loves himself so much because the cheese stands alone on this one. Though he claims nothing was showing in the photo (which he has since removed supposedly) and that he was only doing his job of pushing celebrities’ buttons, I for one am hoping he doesn’t go to prison because it will create all the press he craves and may fill a few more of his cravings that only men who have been without women, men, their right hand or decent options may find attractive in the prison setting.
Celebrities have to stop thinking that their mere presence somewhere is world changing. I love when they get together and do a telethon for say the Katrina victims but just going through your daily life of privilege does not make you a role model, a humanitarian or unwilling to sleep with the enemy for $1M. Someone once said that the only bad press is no press and Mr. John, Mr. Limbaugh, Mr. Hilton, The ex-Mrs. Gary Coleman and others all understand this all too well.
Look, who would seriously turn down $1M for singing a few songs? No one, so good for him for getting paid to do what he gets paid to do but just stop all ready with the acting as if the reason you went was merely to advance gay/bigoted fat white guy relations. We all know you went for the poached salmon. (Big eye roll) Who really cares about Elton John at Rush Limbaugh’s wedding? – Don’t Get Me Started!
