Comment: I heard an unpleasant rumor about Elton John, in which he
supposedly buggered a rent boy to death in Brazil, and was then able to
cover the whole thing up by bribing officials. The source of the story was
a friend-of-a-friend (of course!) who works in broadcasting.

Comment: I just heard a story about Elton John. He was accepting an award
at a recent award ceremony and commented that "It is getting too dark in
here" (referenceing the predominance of African American performers) and
walked off the stage. My buddy says he heard it. Can you please look
into this?

Yet everyone in the audience, probably including many reporters, didn't hear it or have sworn a vow of secrecy over the whole thing.

Im not sure why Mrs C has not seen this one yet, but im sure if she has she laughed her ass off at those two.

I vote false on both of them. We all know Elton has a temper but I am sure we would have heard if he walked off staged at a concert, besides he just loves giving concerts.

The first one is just to stupid to comment on.

Yup, LMAO! Like I said before, I don't usually check this particular forum.

First rumour-- There was a huge controversy around a boy who claimed that Elton gave him drugs in return for "services rendered". The story was covered by the "Sun" (I believe), and through the libel/slander ruling they had to pay Elton, plus run a full-page apology. The story was completely false.

I swear I heard the second rumor some where...but a quick google search turned nothing up. BTW, there's a song called "It's Getting Dark in Here". For now, I'm dismissing the second as rumor as well [Smile]

This song has no title...just words and a tune.

Instant Hi-C--Just add water...
