Elton John faces “towering” debts according to the Daily Mail. Said one noted pop music accountant: “Everything is big with Elton John. He makes a lot of money and he needs to keep on making it. He has taken a lot of money out of the company and if he suddenly stopped working he could have a problem.”
No wonder the singer is pissed at his label. At a recent concert in New York he lashed out at Universal for not promoting his recent release The Captain and the Kid: “I’m going to play a song but I’m sure you haven’t heard it because the f**kers haven’t promoted it.”
Following the tirade, in which he dropped the “f-bomb” 15 times, Elton called on his label to drop him.
Elton also recently began hawking the Elton John Fireside Home Fragrance Collection featuring candles scented with coriander and vanilla (pictured here). They’re perfect for your john. The charitable singer also recently donated $20,000 to help fight the gay marriage amendment battle in Wisconsin.
