Duty or doody?

I'm glad that they are opting to no longer live in sin.

I thought they were already married? They live together and have kids.

They have an official "civil union" which is what used to be considered "good enough for teh gheys" until they realized it wasn't.

Well, can you feel the love tonight?  You madman across the water.  Just don't go breaking his heart or there'll be heartache all over the world.  May you both live the simple life in harmony.  Now kiss the bride, sugar bear.

Awww. Good on you guys. Mazel tov, Rocketman!

I suspect he will buy a big house where they both can live.

I hope he invites Rush Limbaugh.

Yay!

I guess they got tired of rolling like thunder under the covers without a marriage certificate.

Located on Yellow Brick Road.

They'll be married for the longest time. I hope they take a honeymoon cruise on the down Easter Alexa for the longest time. The piano man is in a New York State of mind and he didn't start the fire but he's gonna put it out.

And the neighbors will call the newlyweds Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy.

/Not in the face.

Meh... thinking that you're that important to the world kind of makes being gay redundant, why take a lover when you're already that far up your own ass?

Seriously, statements like that verge on Bono-levels of self-aggrandizing bullshiat.

I hope he invites Vladimir Putin*

*when criticized for his stance on gay rights, Putin noted that Elton John has a big following in Russia

Wait... Elton John... is gay? How is this even possible?
 
2014-03-30 01:11:34 AM  
Congrats to them both!

It explains why Tony Danza is in his head though.

The idea of seeing some sort of duty is rather odd. Though I suppose that when, for good portion of your career, you were one of a limited number of out celebrities, you probably got in the habit of thinking about how your actions would color people's views of gay people.

I wonder if Rob Halford has anything planned now.

Me too

He's got his eye on a certain motorcycle.

I saw him in Youngstown, Ohio (!) a few months back. During one of his numbers, a biographical montage played on the big screen behind the stage. It included an illustration of a wedding cake, with "groom and groom" statues on top of it. The image was just a couple of seconds in a several-minutes-long presentation. I thought it was a classy move, and kind of sweet.

He still puts on an amazing show, BTW.

I'm sure David has requested Sir Elton play "Your Song" at the wedding

Finally going to make and honest man out of him.
Congratulations.

I'm assuming that the hero tag is for Furnish for putting up with a biatchy gay diva like Elton for so long.

I'm sure their wedding will change the hearts and minds of millions who are against gays getting married.

Maybe not, but it might remind them that their dumbass opinions don't really matter much.

Lie back and think of england.

Keep calm and bite the pillow.

That was my impression, too. I thought they got married here in Canada, as Furnish is Canadian and we've been on the Adam & Steve tip for over a decade.

/pay your taxes and close the bedroom door behind you, what "conservatism" used to be.

That's what I was about to ask when I saw this...

They have an official "civil union" which is what used to be considered "good enough for teh gheys" until they realized it wasn't.

*nods*  K; they need to have a big ass wedding then.   Just to piss off the anti-gay marriage contingent.
