Elton John is a bride

Superficial / December 21, 2005

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.
