Elton John Page 1
It’s no secret that we think Hillary Clinton is pretty much the coolest Secretary of State to ever hit the Hill. We also happen to think “Benny and the Jets” is up there with the most fail proof of karaoke tunes. So we’re pleased to see that last night, Sir Elton joined Clinton to be honored by the Human Rights Commission, the Global Equity Fund and the Elton John AIDS Foundation in Washington, D.C.
And Queen Elizabeth‘s Diamond Jubilee celebration keeps on going! The royals have already watched a horse race and floated down the Thames — today they are taking in a huge concert outside Buckingham Palace.
Good morning, friends! It’s not even 5AM and we’re up, swigging coffee, preparing to swig champagne, and ready to post! While the royal wedding party won’t be going anywhere for about another half an hour, the congregation is already filling the seats of Westminster Abbey. Of course, everyone’s waiting to see what Kate Middleton is wearing, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the nuptial ensembles of the likes of Victoria Beckham, Chelsy Davy, and Joss Stone.
Following the outcry surrounding their decision to place a “Family Shield” over an Us Weekly cover featuring Elton John, his partner David Furnish, and their new baby boy Zachary, Harps Supermarket has issued a statement.
Last night a lady went to a grocery store in Mountain Home, Arkansas, where she was privy to one of the more offensive things we’ve heard about in a long time. The people over at Harps Supermarket decided to put a “family shield” (you know, “to protect young Harps shoppers”) over the cover of Us Weekly. But Harps is not trying to protect kids from Snooki or Kim or any other standard tabloid trash. No, they’re trying to “protect” children from a photo of Elton John, his partner David Furnish and their adorable baby Zachary.
Lady Gaga attended Elton John’s 12th annual White Tie and Tiara Ball bedecked in a creamy, pearl-studded, dusk colored gown which she paired, naturally, with a metal fencing mask.
Last month, amFar, the Foundation For Aids Research, raised $1.2 million at their highly anticipated annual Gala. This year, one party did not seem like enough for the Foundation. And when there’s reason to throw a party with some of world’s most fashionable and help a good cause at the same time, we’re all for it. Especially when that party involves honoring Jean Paul Gaultier.
