How cute!

Sir Elton John has been a music megastar for decades, but it's clear he hasn't forgotten where he came from!

The legend recently flew to England to join his old classmates for a school reunion!

The singer took to Instagram to share the fun! He posted a big group photo (above), captioning the snap:

"Lunch at home with dear old school friends. Many of whom I haven't seen for 50 years! It was as if we never left school. So much laughter and so many wonderful memories. #ShareTheLove#PinnerCountyGrammarSchool #Classof58"

We don't hear too often about celebs taking the time to go to reunions like this, but Elton hopped on a plane to celebrate with his former schoolmates!

In fact, he really loved seeing one old friend in particular!

Stars! They're just like us!

Except Elton probably didn't get all anxious or sweaty trying to come up with cool things to say he's done since he left.

He doesn't even have to fib about his fabulous achievements and success!

Leave it to Stephen Colbert to bring some lighthearted comedy and all the laughter in a somewhat dark speech.

LOLz!

But all jokes aside, the comedian took the honor of giving the Wake Forest University commencement speech on Monday in North Carolina.

The former Colbert Report host had some pretty wise words to pass onto the class of 2015!

He said at one point in his speech:

"I just spent many years learning to do one thing really well. I got so comfortable with that place, that role, those responsibilities, that it came to define how I saw myself; but now part of my life is over. It's time to say goodbye to the person we've become … and to make some crucial decisions in becoming who we're going to be. For me, I'll have to figure out how to do an hour-long show every night. And you at some point will have to sleep. I am told the Adderall wears off eventually…

I hope you find the courage to decide for yourself what is right and what is wrong, and then please, expect as much of the world around you. Try to make the world good according to your standards."

Beautiful.

Listen to his funny address (below)!

Exchange Student Gored By Bison At Yellowstone National Park

Exchange Student Gored By Bison At Yellowstone National Park

Oh no!

A Taiwanese student was visiting Yellowstone National Park when she was gored by a buffalo.

How awful!

The 16-year-old was trying to take a selfie with the animal near Old Faithful.

When she turned her back to snap the shot, the bison stabbed her.

[ Video: This Dog Wears Dresses And Walks Like A Human ]

The injuries were serious, but luckily they weren't life threatening.

The park then issued a statement reminding visitors to keep their distance from the wildlife. It read:

"Visitors are reminded that Yellowstone wildlife is wild. Wildlife should not be approached, no matter how tame or calm they appear."

So scary!

We're really glad the student's injuries aren't life threatening, and we hope she gets better soon!
