Sparkling suits, multicolored glasses and a big smile – Elton John’s style is recognized everywhere. Not long ago he boasted at Ellen DeGeneres show, that he had already released his 33rd album, named “Wonderful Crazy Night” and went on a worldwide tour.
He has been popular for several decades and seems not to change at all. At the same time Elton John is completely different from that young queer teenager, who was just starting his career.
His father was a RAF officer, who could play the trumpet. It was he, who introduced his son to music, but he didn’t want Reginald Kenneth Dwight (Elton John’s real name) to pursue this career. The star doesn’t like to recollect in his mind his troubled childhood. His parents divorced in 1952 and then his mother re-married. He is the only son of Sheila Dwight, and she got very upset, when she heard, that her son was gay. The woman dreamed to have grandchildren.
Now Elton John combines his career with a family life. He is married a man David Furnish and they grow up two sons, born via surrogate. But Elton John’s mother had never seen her grandchildren. Her son doesn’t want to see her in his life.
Elton John rose to stardom after the release of his second self-titled album. He passed through numerous troubles, like many other popular musicians of those times. He used drugs, drank too much and rented boys for his parties. Nowadays Elton John overcame all his bad habits except one – shopping. He always has a laptop around and never hesitates to make one more purchase.
