Front row seats for Elton John? Uh, maybe not…

November 27, 2006

Call me old-fashioned, but maybe there is such a thing as stars sharing too much information with their fans.

Just as a for instance, Elton John was performing in Australia today when he abruptly left the stage.  When he returned minutes later, he told the audience he had gone off to throw up.

“I thought I’d better chunder (vomit) in the toilet than all over the front row,” he was quoted as saying.  Wow. I guess that’s what makes him a superstar.  Here’s the story:
