It seems to be the fashionable thing for celebrities to do these days, and over the weekend Elton John announced his plan to adopt a 14-month-old boy from the Ukraine.
The “Your Song” hitmaker and his partner David Furnish attended a news conference at an orphanage for HIV-positive children in the town of Makeyevka, Ukraine to chat with press. They hope to adopt a boy named Lev who John said had “stolen his heart.”
On Tuesday night, while at the GQ Men of the Year Awards in London, legendary Elton John and dolled up Lily Allen brought out their claws to one another.
While Allen, 23, was drinking her champagne alongside Elton onstage, the "Tiny Dancer" singer became very bothered by Allen’s slurred words and behavior. John, who is now 61, spurted to the young singer, “What, are you going to have another drink?”
While most of the action was going on over at the Kodak Theatre last night (Sunday), Elton John was throwing a little shindig of his own. And stars like Sean Penn and Petra Nemcova were all about showing some love.
For the past fifteen years, the “Can You Feel the Love Tonight?” singer has held an AIDS Foundation Academy Awards viewing party, and in the process raised over $15 million for charity.
It’s gotta be great being a celebrity and having ultra-rich celebrity friends. Just ask Elizabeth Hurley. She’s a beautiful actress/model, and she has friends like Sir Elton John to throw her ridiculous birthday parties.
John served up birthday wishes for Hurley in lavish form. Elizabeth’s husband, Arun Nayar, seemed stunned by the festivities, and by his wife’s beautiful white knee-length frock and sparkly shoes. Not bad for 42, eh?
Sir Elton John is making the final preparations for a sold-out show tonight (March 25) at Madison Square Garden. This isn't your everyday concert, though, as the pop legend will be celebrating his 60th birthday with his record-setting 60th MSG performance.
Born as Reg Dwight in London on March 25, 1947, Elton has long been a crowd favorite at the coveted venue.
"There are very few artists that could even think of setting a record like this, let alone achieve it," said Jay Marciano, president of MSG Entertainment.
After hosting one of the hotter Oscar after-parties around, Sir Elton John flew off to England and walked Elizabeth Hurley down the aisle for her church blessing with new husband Arun Natay on Saturday.
Hurley, 41, tied the knot with Indian businessman Nayar, 43, in a private and unannounced civil ceremony at Sudeley Castle in Gloucestershire, England, on Friday, the day before celebrating with their elite group of friends the following day.
The duchess rocked the crowd with her sizzling hot performance of London Bridge at Fashion Rocks in New York City to kick off Fashion Week. She was wearing a gorgeous gold dress, which I personally liked better than her VMA outfit (remember the Burberry shorts Fergie wore?). Anyway, if you missed the show, don't panic. We've got your back!

Elton John, the flamboyant musician of the last decades has finally gone and done it. He and his "boyfriend" of over 12 years, David Furnish, tied the knot Wednesday in England.
They were married in the exact same spot that Prince Charles and Ms. Camilla were married... WIndsor's Town Hall.
The much-publicized union took place on the first day on which same-sex couples were allowed a to be legally married. The laws gives them the same social security, pension, tax and inheritance rights in England and Wales.
Too bad Madonna didn't show up. Why didn't she show up anyway??? Poor Elton, she really pi$$ed him off this time!
