Elton John really really hates photographers
While presenting the Chopard Trophy to Kevin Zegers at Cannes Saturday, Elton John was interrupted by a photographer during his speech and lost it.
“He (Zegers) is only 21 years old, already he showed incredible talent and maturity,” said John, wearing dark glasses and accompanied by actress Elizabeth Hurley. “I sincerely believe he will be a huge star and a great actor for many, many years to come.” Then, as photographers called out during his address, he added: “If you saw ‘Transamerica’ … I’m talking … you fuckwit, fucking photographers you should be shot, you should be all shot. Thank you.” After handing the award to a smiling Zegers, he added: “They are a nightmare.”
You never know what that silly little man is gonna do next. One day he’s wearing glasses the size of my bed and the next he’s telling photographers to go get shot and die. He’s like Robin Williams with Tourette’s, only replace the out of control body hair with flashy suits made of purple zebra skin and polka dots.
