This holds some serious clout, especially coming from him!

Elton John has nothing but praise for Lady GaGa's upcoming album, Born This Way, and even claims that its title track will knock Gloria Gaynor's 'I Will Survive' off its thrown as number one gay anthem!

He explains:

“She and I come from exactly the same place. She's kind of like the bastard daughter of Elton John. I love her, and I love her ability to write. There’s a chance I might do one track with her, but she’s so busy and I’m so busy, we can never get together! But her record – it’s fucking amazing. ‘Born This Way,’ which is the title song, will completely get rid of Gloria Gaynor’s 'I Will Survive.' This is the new 'I Will Survive.' That was the gay anthem. This is the new gay anthem. Actually, it’s not a gay anthem – it can apply to anybody.”

Very true! GaGa sings about issues that apply to EVERYONE!

But this is amazing news!

We can't wait to hear the album!!!

    'off its throne' - Sick of Perez's horrific English.



  2. 2

    Wow-I'm really glad you think Elton has clout, Pigass.
    Let's remember that he CHOSE to play AZ when all the other idiot crybabies refused to due to SB1070.
    How does your nasty, green and diabetic-from-being-SO-fat foot taste now dumbass?!?!?
    BTW-his was an AMAZING show!!!

    I wonder what she's going to copy from Madonna this time around. This song already sounds like a rip off of Madonna's Express Yourself.

    Anytime a song gets a lot of hype it usually is a major let down. Was X-tina's Glam supposed to be the new Vogue? Yeah that worked out didn't it.

    GaGa makes generic dance pop. If it wasn't for her crazy ass outfits she wouldn't have stood out from Kylie Minogue, Britney Spears or any of the other dance divas that actually make better music. Her labels strategy seems to be to take old Madonna concepts and recycle them to people that are too naive to realize that Madonna has already done it all but better and when it actually meant something. GaGa doesn't put her career at risk for speaking up for gay rights in 2010 like Madonna did in the 80's and 90's at the height of the AIDS pandemic.

    I hope the song leaks soon. I wanna hear it.



  5. 5

    write? did she write the thought provoking tune"telephone"? or the other poetic gem "just dance"? she is sylvia plath!!!



  8. 8

    I'm actually pretty stoked about it as well. I never drew the parallel before, but GaGa and Elton really do have a LOT in common stylistically. I think I'm going to adore the album.



  9. 9

    So what was thrown? Aaah I missed it!



  10. 10

    SOOOO SICK AND TIRED ABOUT ALL THIS GAY CRAP……SO PEREZ TELL ME IF SHE DID NOT EVER MENTION GAYS WOULD YA LOVE HER SO MUCH?? SO SICK AND TIRED OF IT ALL BEING ABOUT SEXUAL PREFERENCES…..WHY IS IT GAY PEOPLE HAVE TO MAKE IT BE KNOWN…AND HEARD???? GAY PRIDE PARADE…GAY ARTISTS…LIKE WHO CARES PEOPLE ARE PEOPLE THATS IT….BUT IF YOUR GAY YOU MUST ADVERTISE IT…DEMONSTRATE IT AND HAVE YOUR OWN GAY ARTISTS WHO STICK UP FOR GAY RIGHTS…..ENOUGH….SO OLD NOW…..YOUR GAY GOOD FOR YOU…..



  11. 11

    Hey, at least you didn't spell clout with a 'w'…so you're making progress! You'll have that GED before you know it!

    You'll have to explain how a GAY anthem applies to EVERYONE someday. Seems to me that it would only be an anthem for GAY people. Sort of like how the "Star Spangled Banner" doesn't really get the Canadians all fired up. That sort of thing.

    Oh, and love GagGag's "WHERE THE FUCK DID I LEAVE MY COKE?" expression in the photo. *sniff*



  12. 12

    What issues is she singing about that applies to everyone? They can't hear their cellphone in the club… wow how inspirational. Or better yet, her poker face! Ya know how a guy can't tell you like chicks or something? Totally applies to EVERYONE



  13. 13

    What "issues" is this tranny singing about? Getting drunk in the club and losing your phone? Give me a fucking break…



  14. 14

    HAHAHA "OFF ITS THROWN" HAHAHA . HEAR'S ONE FOR YOU PEREZ. I READ ALL OF THERE BLOGS. THEIR FUNNY. I HAVE TOO READ THEM. WEATHER YOU LIKE THEM OR NOT YOU HAVE TOO READ THEM TO.

    I'LL BET YOU'RE WONDERING WHAT'S WRONG WITH THAT SENTENCE AREN'T YOU?



  15. 15

    Is Elton smoking weed? I can't wait for this one trick pony to go back to the stable.



  16. 16

    So tell me, how deep inside Ga(s)Ga ass are you now? Do you feel like a misplaced tampon by now?



  17. 17

    Wait, you mean to say that "Wifey" hasn't let you hear anything off the album? How strange…for a "wifey"…



  18. 18

    Re: BoomlayBoom – actually… there is no grammatical error here… he is referring to knocking the song off its throne… which as far as im concerned a song is an "it" making "its" the possessive form… perhaps you should learn to read.



  19. 19

    Re: LetttyB – another idiot that doesn't know how to read… he is referring to knocking the song off its throne… and as far as i know a song is an "it" making "its" the possessive form…

    All that proves is that Elton John is working in the same business as Gaga while Elton John has written some amazing music he has also had his share of BS.
    Any contracted artist that speaks out on behalf of another is generally doing so because of the pressures of the companies they are stuck to. Besides Elton John isn't so relevant to kids and what would make him such working with lady gaga. It also gives Gaga false credibility for being around Elton. They should do it. I think it would probably end her career. She's already played out.



  21. 21

    I love her music. GaGa is really talented, but I'm torn between congratulating her for being so vocal about her support of gay issues, or else criticize her for beating this issue TO DEATH!

    Re: LetttyB
    Huh?



  24. 24

    ~yawn~
    Another "Lick-the-Crack-of-LadyGAGA's-Ass" post from Perez.
    What a surprise. ~rolling eyes~

    Instead of Perez Hilton site, the should be called "LadyGaGaSuckUp.com"



  25. 25

    Shit. Shuta Fuck up with all this gay pride already! We get it. Your gay, please move on!



  26. 26

    seriously dude…how much extra time would it take you to spellcheck?



  27. 27

    I thought I Will Survive was an anthem for women; about getting divorced/leaving abusive husbands..I never heard it was a Gay Anthem. Im so sick of these fuckers wanting to replace EVERYTHING. Madonna has to be replaced, MJ has to be replaced, every "anthem" song has to be replaced. And for some reason its all with this ugly ass chick. I just dont get the excitment..shes SO generic..its only cuz she dresses up and built everything off the backs of everyone who came before



  28. 28

    Re: jp1988
    Why does every Madonna fan act like everything began with Madonna? Just because she's done it before doesn't mean she's done it first, and just because she's done an idea before it doesn't mean it should end with her. After all, Madonna wouldn't exist if she hadn't recycled everyone else's ideas herself.



  29. 29

    she looks like a ugly vampire and who gives a shit what he has to say–why dont u just call this rag the gay hour–it sucks more than u do anymore.



  30. 30

    Re: whenurbored
    …you do realize that "thrown" is a homophone for "throne" and that that's why they are criticizing the sentence, right? because he used the wrong form to express what he meant.

    so how's about YOU learn how to read?



  31. 31

    OK You know what. Im not dissin GaGa bacause I appreciate that she got her fame through hard work. BUT. I really seriously believe that GaGa jumped on the gay bandwagon for publicity. I seriously think shes doing it because gay is in.



  32. 32

    OK. Im not dissin GaGa. She earned her way through hard work. But I seriously think she jumped on the gay bandwagon for publicity because everything gay is in. Shes like Ok Im cool with gay. But I dont think shes into it as much as shes in it to gain fans.



  33. 33

    What has this world come to?



  34. 34

    Clout???!!! He has no clout….he performed at Rush Limbaugh's wedding for Christ's sake!!! He has lost any clout he ever had. I've always loved his music, but selling out for money, regardless of what he did with it is still selling out. Sound familiar Perez? You can't do or say something repulsive, benefit from it financially, and then try to fix your mistake by giving the funds to a good cause (i.e. your Canada mishap)

  35. china says – reply to this


    35

    for everyone except those with taste and brains you mean?



  36. 36

    She is WAY over exposed,she needs a BREAK!
    Hope the song is as good as they say,cause till now she hasn't been writing about anything but getting drunk or ra ra ra…



  37. 37

    I would love to see what this idiot's IQ is. She is ugly and a fame whore. Gee, sounds like you PIGFACE. There is nothing redeeming about that SLUT.



  38. 38

    If this chick bored the pants off me anymore I'd be a flasher. Yawn, Yawn and YAWN!!! What a couple of douche' bag narcissists. Oh, we want to work together, but we're just too busy. Hey Elton…GO FUCK YOURSELF TWAT!



  39. 39

    WOW. JUST HOW MUCH MONEY IS HER RECORD COMPANY PAYING YOU TO PROMOTE GAGA'S CRAP PEREZ? NOW YOU'RE EVEN PROMOTING STUFF THAT IS YET TO BE RELEASED! I'M SO SICK OF HEARING ABOUT THIS OVER-PROMOTED MADONNA COPY CAT. ALL SHE CAN DO IS WEAR RIDICULOUS OUTFITS TO DRAW ATTENTION TO HER TRULY AWFUL KIDS SONGS - SHE'S JUST HIDING THE FACT THAT SHE'S ESSENTIALLY A VERY BORING GENERIC IDIOT. SHE'S RIDICULOUS - A JOKE AND A PHONEY. I WOULD NEVER WASTE MY MONEY ON THIS UGLY WOMAN - NO MATTER HOW OFTEN YOU FORCE HER DOWN OUR THROATS.

    Re: mw – HAHA



  41. 41

    I LOVE the comments on here!! hahaha Gaga's issues 'losing your phone in the club' or her 'poker face' and the person who said "do you feel like a misplaced tampon yet' LMAO!



  42. 42

    Re: Trancelike

    It will NEVER end. We are NOT going anywhere. We will only become MORE vocal. If you don't like it, hide under the bed and cry.



  43. 43

    who cares actually? why dont u post all the critics on her performances and album ah?? and elton would say that .he alreday said that about many artists. and since when u care about him??stop this publicity with gaga. she sucks.



  44. 44

    she sucks. wannabe. her songs are so bad and she only works with madonna ppl. but she has no attitude. she like spice girls
    horrible. she cant shock. she only quotes madonna. like the world domination like madonna said. gaga is predictable. and her shows are another madonna copty. boring. without madonna there would be no gaga or brit.M is queen.gaga trash



  45. 45

    Perez, a person sits on a throNE, not a throWN!



  46. 46

    Re: MadonnaLive – so sick of you always saying bad about Lady Gaga –' it's your opinion, we get it!!! for you Madonna is the Queen or whatsoever, for others she isn't…I hate calling Madonna Queen of Pop because there is always someone who is going to tell me that she isn't. and I'm fine with it, because I have my own interpretations of her work –' back in the 80's, when she appeared, no one thought she was going to last, and they thought that she was very boring, predictable and a generic pop artist. She proved them wrong! And Gaga is going to do the same!!! I am possibly, one of the greatest Little Monsters in the world, and even I don't call her Queen…that's so arrogant –' for example, I prefere to call her the Monster of Pop. It's different and it is my interpretation! Madonna, for me, it's the Matriarch of Pop.



  47. 47

    Re: MadonnaLive – Lady Gaga can't run away from Madonna's influence, but she doesn't want to. Madonna was (and is) GREAT (as other artists)!!! but, does that mean that Lady Gaga can't also be GREAT? She blend styles and points of view…she is like the most spectacular revolution (both visually and artistically) in the last decade! She is not trying to erase Madonna or anyone else!!! she, everyday, congratulates Pop culture, past, present and future! she is an artist, because she embodies her work in her life. It's so strong, that it came a time where the songs were put in the same level with her outfits, her interviews, everything! everything that she does is GAGA! not just the songs, or the clothes…everything!!! she is just living her dream.



  48. 48

    Re: MadonnaLive – I am gay and I don't feel that she is using us (as fans) as a publicity stunt…she means the world to me…as other artist mean to you. Everyday I listen to her songs, see what she did during the day, because I feel lucky to be in the same era as Lady Gaga and I want to feel closer to her…when she did so much for my confidence…I don't judge the people who don't like her…it's your personal taste. But think before posting something about her, how would you feel if someone was always trashing your favorite artist? if she disappeared tomorrow, I wouldn't care…because, for me, she will always be number 1.

    p.s. Little Monsters was the nickname she gave to us, in a caring, loving way. Hate when someone tells it's stupid…it's not stupid because it's not for you, it's for us! Please, I am just asking, respect her as an artist that is admired by so many…as this many respect every other artist that you love!

    Re: Wild-Guitar – Spend too many years in grade 8 did you?



  50. 50

    i guess it´s more important to be gay friendly than to actually have talent nowadays…i mean, it´s important to keep an open mind but it has absolutely nothing to do with talent. Lady Gaga might play the promiscuous bissexual card to atract the GLS public, but it´s just pathetic that she uses that for attention. It´s all just a scene anyways, she knows GAY is IN right now, so she´s milking that cow. I bet she´s never even been with a woman.



  51. 51

    i cant wait 2 hear it!!



  52. 52

    'I will survive' is a great song and it's not fair to predict that Lady Gaga's 'Born this way' will be better.



  53. 53

    Looking forward to hearing!
