Elton John and David Furnish Expecting Second Child

Elton John and David Furnish are expecting their second child, UK tabloid The Sun reports:

Furnish_johnA surrogate for the Rocket Man singer and hubby David is due to give birth next year, The Sun can exclusively reveal. Last night a source close to the pair said: “Elton and David love this lady like a sister and they feel indebted to her for life. Naturally she has been well rewarded. But her identity will never be revealed.” The mum — believed to have been recruited via the Center for Surrogate Parenting in Encino, California — is said to be already “several months” pregnant. Zachary will have turned two by the time his sibling arrives.

Elton John Demands Marriage Equality in the UK

Elton John, who in 2008 publicly criticized marriage equality advocates in California for fighting for the word "marriage" and not settling for civil partnerships, has changed his tune, writing in The Independent:

John_furnishI know a lot of people, and perhaps especially religious people, will say that David and I should count ourselves lucky for living in a country that allows civil partnerships, and call it quits there. In most countries around the world, gay people aren't just disallowed from coming together in a legal sense; they are actually persecuted by governments because of their sexuality. Maybe we should just be happy that we at least have a civil partnership, and not push our luck.

Well, I don't accept this. I don't accept it because there is a world of difference between calling someone your "partner" and calling them your "husband". "Partner" is a word that should be preserved for people you play tennis with, or work alongside in business. It doesn't come close to describing the love that I have for David, and he for me. In contrast, "husband" does. A "husband" is somebody that you cherish forever, that you would give up everything for, that you love in sickness and in health. Until the law recognises David Furnish is my husband, and not merely my partner, the law won't describe the man I know and adore.

David Furnish: 'Integrity' of Golden Globes Must Be 'Questioned' After Madonna's Win Over Elton

Elton John's husband David Furnish had more to say to the NY Post about Madonna's Golden Globe win:

Carson_ej“I think it was a fluke . . . When this happens you have to question the integrity of the awards. Did Madonna get the Golden Globe because she attended the awards and agreed be a presenter? Can you sing Madonna’s song? Can you hum it? It’s a song nobody has heard, from a film few have seen. The award should have gone to Mary J. Blige or Elton. I like Madonna’s music, but not her movies. She should stick to what she is good at.”

On Sunday, Furnish took to his Facebook to rip Madonna following the win after Elton's embarrassing red carpet statement that “Madonna hasn’t got a f**king chance."

Elton John's Husband David Furnish Rips Madonna for Globes Win


David Furnish was not happy about Madonna's Golden Globes win for Best Song, writing on Facebook, "Madonna. Best song???? F**k off!!!...Madonna winning Best Original Song truly shows how these awards have nothing to do with merit. Her acceptance speech was embarrassing in it's narcissism. And her critisism of Gaga shows how desperate she really is."

Carson_ejEarlier, on the red carpet, Elton had given an interview to Carson Daly in which he proclaimed, “Madonna hasn’t got a f**king chance."

Lady Gaga to be Godmother to Elton John and David Furnish's Son


David Furnish gave an interview to Macleans magazine late this week in which he was asked about reports that Lady Gaga was to be named Godmother to his and Elton John's son Zachary.

Said Furnish: John_furnish

"We haven’t publicly confirmed that yet but your sources are very good! I prefer not to comment on it because we are going to make a statement about godparents later on." 

He added, "She’s all about inclusiveness and tolerance. She believes that you can be whoever you want to be and that we don’t have to live in a world of conformity and that we can all [benefit] from individuality. That’s the best message in the world. The freedom to be who you are, do what you want and love who you want to love."

In related news, Gaga tweeted the above photo last night: “Dyed my bangs black. Its my new monsterlook. Let the mitosis of the future begin. Off to meet Judas.”
