Elton John defies boycott of Arizona: “I still play in California, and as a gay man I have no legal rights whatsoever”
You gotta hand it to Elton John. At the age of 63, he pretty much does what he wants, says what he feels and does not care who he ticks off in the process.
I suppose he’s earned it!
So what has the Rocket Man, who performed at Rush Limbaugh’s wedding recently, done now? He performed a sold-out concert at Tucson Arena, defying a boycott by other acts over Arizona’s controversial SB 1070 immigration law.
Here’s what Elton had to say to any would-be critics: “We are all very pleased to be playing in Arizona. I have read that some of the artists won’t come here. They are (expletive)wits! Let’s face it: I still play in California, and as a gay man I have no legal rights whatsoever. So what’s the (expletive) with these people?”
