Elton John Signs On To Pen Theme Song For Gnomeo & Juliet Sequel, Performs In Orlando

Iconic English rock singer-songwriter, composer, pianist and occasional actor, Elton John, performs many of his amazing hits to the Floridian crowd at the Orlando Amway Center.

Wearing a flamboyant black jacket with embroidered flamingos on the back, John’s quirky sense of style makes him pop on stage while his adoring fans cheer him on.

After his performance, he stops and greets fans and signs autographs, chatting with each person as though they were a personal friend.

This month, Elton John turns 65, but the singer is going stronger than ever, even announcing he’ll pen the song for the Gnomeo & Juliet sequel, and perhaps earn himself another Oscar nod.

Elton John Supports The Elton John AIDS Foundation At The 2011Grey Goose Winter Ball

Sir Elton John and his partner David Furnish brought a festive attitude to the 2011 Grey Goose Winter Ball to Benefit The Elton John AIDS Foundation.

The foundation gala was held at Battersea Park, which party planners created into the first elBulli experience on UK soil, ever.

elBulli, famous for being the world’s number one restaurant for a record of five times has an exquisite menu, which was fashioned and on hand for party attendees.

The Elton John AIDS mission is to empower people infected, affected and at risk of HIV/AIDS: to alleviate their physical, emotional and finical hardship, enabling them to improve their quality of life, live with dignity and exercise self-determination.

At the end of the gala, the band Plan B gave a special performance at the request of Sir Elton.

Gnomeo and Juliet

A fun gnomey twist on the Shakespearean classic!

Walking the blue carpet at the premiere of the CGI animated film “Gnomeo & Juliet”, new daddies to son Zachary, Sir Elton John and David Furnish, who was a producer on the film, looked delighted in their special glittery and gnome-adorned 3-D glasses.

During a recent press conference Elton, who scored the film, was very forthcoming of the new chapter in his and David’s life saying among other things, ‘I love the smell of nappies’.

Also at the El Capitan Theatre for the premiere was the voice of Juliet, Emily Blunt who wore braids in her hair and an elegant white knee-length dress, and vest-clad James McAvoy, the voice of Gnomeo.

Sir Elton John Donates Piano

Pianists will surely be pleased from now on when they pop in to BBC Radio 2 thanks to the recent donation made by Sir Elton John.

Sir Elton, who dropped by BBC Radio 2 this afternoon wearing cool green shades and a matching scarf to commemorate his good deed, recently donated one of his own pianos to the studio in hopes it will inspire others.

The legendary musician said, ‘I’m delighted to donate one of my treasured pianos to Radio 2, who have supported me so much over the past 40 years’

He continued, ‘The piano is, of course, my favourite instrument to play and I hope it inspires the musicians who play it.’

What a lovely thing to do.

Billy Elliot: The Musical’s 5th Birthday Spectacular

Billy Elliot: The Musical celebrated its 5th birthday yesterday at the Victoria Palace Theater in London, and some pretty big names were there for the event. The always wonderful Elton John and David Furnish showed up, and I’m pretty sure a Luke Wilson impersonator is guiding the crowd behind them.

Who is that guy and why isn’t he in movies?

The Stars Play Tennis for Charity

Andy Roddick and Elton John competed on the court yesterday at the Advanta World TeamTennis (WTT) Smash Hits charity tennis event.  The annual tennis match was held at the Peter Maravich Assembly Center on the campus of Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, and it raised a lot of money for a really good cause.

Judging by the look of intense concentration on Elton’s face, he was in it to win it!

Also on court were Anna Kournikova and Serena Williams. Liking Serena’s new sleek hairdo!

Cartier Celebrates its 100th Anniversary in America

Cartier celebrated its 100th anniversary in America last night, and a ton of people came out for the event. The shindig featured an exhibit of “Cartier: 100 Years of Passion and Free Spirit in America” at the flagship store (which is now a historic landmark) in New York City showcased 100 unique Cartier creations, including many from private collections.

As expected for something like this, the celebs came out en masse. Elton John was there, sparkling brighter and prettier than any Cartier diamond, and Demi Moore also showed up. Why’s her smile so wonky? It looks more like a grimace than a grin!

Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake went to the event together, but I keep hearing rumors that they’re on the outs. Maybe there’s no truth to what everyone is saying?

Elton John’s Birthday Bash

I kind of love Joe Francis.

A Match Made in Heaven

101308-tennis-aids-benefit.jpg Please link to www.mavrixonline.com

Anna Kournikova, Andy Roddick, Elton John, Martina Navratilova, Billie Jean King and other A-Listers had a busy day yesterday. While you were getting drunk and watching football, they were raising around $400,000 for HIV/AIDS charities. Everyone played a little tennis, and there was a live auction that raised almost $200,000. Items up for grabs included Wimbledon packages, Super Bowl tickets and an autographed piano bench.

Conspicuously absent from the auction list was a hot date with Andy. I’m guessing this was done on purpose, because he knows that I would have spared no expense to get up close and personal with him.

As much as I really, really want to hate Anna K., I just can’t. She’s probably the most adorable thing I’ve ever seen, and the only time I ever hear about her is when she’s doing something good (and looking good doing it). She’s just an all-around fantastic role model.

Elton’s New Pad

Blog_mx0035256

Elton John is to rejoin the Sierra Tower rat pack in LA. He has purchased a two bedroom two and a half bathroom condo for nearly $2.5 million. The 1800 square foot pad has views from downtown LA all the way to the Pacific. Elton used to own a Condo in the 32 floor Sierra Towers, just off the famous Sunset Strip but sold it to Matthew Perry a couple of years ago for nearly the same price he has bought the new one for. The towers has a gym, a doorman and a rooftop pool. Lindsay Lohan, Cher, Geri Halliwell and Kate Moss amongst others have all been one time residents.
