Has Elton John lost his mind? AIDS activist performs at the fourth wedding of Rush Limbaugh!
This seems so wrong on so many levels: Rush Limbaugh got married for the fourth time over the weekend and guess who performed at his wedding?
Elton, who is in a civil partnership with David Furnish, was reportedly paid $1 million for the gig with the earnings going to the Elton John AIDS Foundation as all money from his private concerts go.
According to a News Corporation (which owns Fox News) wire report, Elton serenaded the 400 guests into the wee hours Saturday night to celebrate the marriage of Limbaugh, 59, to Kathryn Rogers, 33, in the Ponce de Leon ballroom of Florida’s fabled Breakers hotel in Palm Beach.
Limbaugh is famously against gay marriage and has made several offensive homophobic remarks over the years.
I doubt there were many gay marriage supporter among these guests: former Bush adviser Karl Rove; actor-politician Fred Thompson; Fox News commentator Sean Hannity; former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani; GOP analyst Mary Matalin. A wedding guest also tells PEOPLE that among the others was Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
I hope Elton makes some kind of statement today explaining why he would take such a gig. Surely there are other ways for him to raise $1 million for AIDS causes.
