Elton John A Second Class Citizen In The US?

Oh come on Elton...can we please stop whining now?

Take a look at this article.

I love Elton. His music is some of the best around and always will be. The man has great talent.

However, he has a mouth that should be taped shut when it comes to everything but singing.

Hoof in mouth disease much?

Yes, the US is backwards with Gay Rights. But second class citizen? I really don't think so. I think it is one more thing he's doing to get attention.

I mean, after all, he's wearing more understated clothing these days, so he has to do something.

The world rejoiced with you..everywhere...except maybe on this blog...when his son was born. (Hey, sorry, I don't think old men should be procreating, millions of dollars or not). That's not totally a country forcing you to feel second class.

However in all his rantings and ravings he did have something to say that we should all listen to..."We don't need any more stone throwing. We don't need any more vitriol. We need people to say, 'OK. I'm straight. You're gay. Let's get along. I'm Republican. You're Democratic. Let's work together.' I'm sick and tired of people being hateful to each other in this country."

Amen to that Sir Elton. Amen to that!

Now sing me a song!

Technically, he's right. If a group of people is being denied rights, they are second-class citizens. It's still legal in many states, including Pennsylvania, for homosexuals to be denied jobs or even service in a business because of their sexual orientation. It's not a protected class, so anything goes.

But he doesn't live here...he lives in the UK..

I thought he had a place here in the states somewhere, but that could be my dad making things up. He does work & tour here, though.

Sure, and I doubt anyone in Hollywood is arguing with him, but I don't think he has dual house or not...if he doesn't like it here he should be more proactive about getting things changed or leave. Whining doesn't do any good unless your name is Conan.
