Elton John is a bride

December 21st, 2005 // 27 Comments

ejohn_wedding_gown.jpgNot entirely sure what you’re looking at? Yeah me neither, but supposedly it’s Elton John being fitted for his traditional flowing wedding dress by Donatella Versace. Why would he be wearing a wedding dress, you ask? Because he got married today.

Elton John swapped vows with longtime partner David Furnish Wednesday, taking advantage of a new law in England that permits same-sex couples to enter into legalized civil unions. The twosome made their partnership official in a private ceremony at Windsor’s town hall, the same spot where Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles were wed earlier this year. Hundreds of fans turned out to line the streets in support.

I’m all for same sex marriages and all that, but I’m not okay with seeing Elton John trying on a wedding dress. His goofy eyewear and crazy outfits were at least mildly amusing, but the full on wedding gown is just bizarre. Thanks to Dupa for the picture, and for the totally fitting comment: “I’d have to say that I’d rather wipe my dementia-ridden grandmothers diarhhea infected anal cavity before having to look at this picture twice.”

UPDATE: The photo is 90% fake. Considering Elton John and his husband, David Furnish, wore tuxedos to their wedding, it doesn’t make much sense for him to have a spare wedding gown to change into. Then again, there isn’t much about Elton John that makes sense.

    Thank god we didn’t have to see his garter being taken off! I think he just set the gay movement back until when we thought Rosie O’Donnell had a crush on Tom Cruise.

  2. i’d like to know what the hell kind of date rape drug he used to convince his husband to marry him. that’s some strong shit (that i need to get ahold of).

  3. Captain Awesome

    lol, gay.

  4. Leslie

    Good for him. That’s awesome.

  5. OneTwoPunch

    a) that’s not him

    b) he wore a SUIT to his wedding

    Sheesh.

    If there truly is a god, I hope to hell that Elton doesn’t film the consummation of his civil union.

    But if he feels the absolute need to, I beg of him not to release the video onto the internet.

    Instead, Mr.John ought to sell the extremely obscene footage to Showtime, so that they can create the most frighening episode of Masters of Horror ever!

    As I was saying – he’s a natural for the next Bond girl. He’s even knighted – and wasn’t Goodknight a Bond girl already ? He could sing a title song ” Live and Let Cross-Dress” or play an evil love-interest – ‘Oopsnopussy’
    I think EJ would revive the franchise. Seriously.

    If one would go to the sun.uk.co site you will find that this is all fake and was done as a spoof…….. they are look-alikes; although I have to agree – he would make a great Bond Girl….can you just imagine the trash talk!!!!

    The last time I had a nightmare about the tooth fairy, this is what it looked like.

  10. Obsessa

    I saw this dress on eBay last week.

  11. bluecanary

    Just goes to show not all brides are beautiful. WHOEVER that is in the wedding dress needs some serious Atkins. *shudders*

  12. Baroness

    Yeah … Meanwhile, Donatella Versace looks so skanky I want to claw my own eyes out.

  13. Wow. Glinda The Good Witch of The North has really let herself go.

  14. Bitmo

    That picture is a ridiculous fake. Donatella Versace has never put that much fabric on a human body in her life, why would she start by making a 1980′s replica Barbie dress for Elton John?
    Versace dresses are like nipple slings held together by safety pins, not elaborate lace monstrocities like the one pictured.

    I think that’s hilarious and awesome.

  16. Alcoholicpiegirl

    Its obviously a fake and by the view of the camera it looks like some sort of stalker took that picture, because I’m so sure that stalkers hide out in Donatella Versace’s bridal shop.

  17. mrschickee

    LOL @ Binky. “Oopsnopussy”….that’s effin’ hilarious!

  18. Of course that’s not Elton John in a wedding dress. It’s Doctor Octopus in a wedding dress.

    I know that this article is about Elton Gay, but all I can say is Donatella Versace scares the fucking shit out of me. I have nothing funny or witty to say…all I can do is express my horror of that woman. She kinda looks like Samara from The Ring just with blond hair. *Shudders*

    You arent funny or witty at all anyways. leave the funny and witty comments up to the sites author, and just read. there is a reason that you ARENT a writer/author for this page. It’s because you arent funny, witty, and people simply don’t care to read what you consider amusing.

    Besides, closed minded people like yourself arent worth being listened to or even acknowledged anyways. Do the world a favor and go jump off a cliff.

    “The twosome made their partnership official in a PRIVATE ceremony…HUNDREDS of fans turned out to line the streets in support.”

    Wha? Does private mean something else in england? Cause private here in the states is getting a ten minute wedding in Vegas. Damn we’re classy.

  22. Akasha

    That looks like a photograph created by Alison Jackson. She specializes in recreating paparazzi-like photos of celebrities using models who look similar to the real person. Some of her best work is on British subjects like Princess Diana and the royal family.

  23. Regurgitating Gordon Wood

    wow barry,
    you have got to be in top 10 angriest people in the world. congrats.

    you have GOT to be british. i’m just saying.

  24. derekd

    Oh, is THAT why I’m not an author for this page? I’m glad you think you know everything. What I write isn’t amusing? Hmmmm, well I must say that your pathetic little “comment” was just so funny! Not.

    “Besides, closed minded people like yourself arent worth being listened to or even acknowledged anyways. Do the world a favor and go jump off a cliff.”

    It’s so sad to see you contradict yourself and thereby make yourself look like a total dumbass. If I’m not worth being listened to or acknowledged, then why the HELL did you take the time to actually write a ridiculous little comment about it? OMG, please, get a life. People like you are just sad. This site is a place where you go and read about celebrities and make fun of them. If you are so angry at the world, go and get yourself a psychiatrist. Because you inherently need one. I hope that you read this before you jump out the window. That’s all I have to say to a pathetic moron like you…I’m done wasting my time writing to you.

  26. Wasn’t there supposed to be a Donald Duck head with that outfit?
