At a recent concert, Elton John shocked fans by going on a foul-mouthed tirade against Universal, his record label. He was quoted as saying, "My record label isn't doing anything to help. F**k Universal... They're useless. Here's a message to Universal Records - please drop me. Just let me go somewhere else."
Ah. I see how he has the fans that he has. With this level of grace and charisma, how could he not be beloved by many?
