Elton John has PR meltdown in Taiwan

TAIPEI (Reuters) - British rock star Elton John (news), in Taipei for a concert, swore at reporters who swarmed around him at the airport Thursday and called them "rude, vile pigs."


Reuters Photo



Wearing a bright blue tracksuit and dark sunglasses, the star shouted expletives as he was mobbed by photographers and TV crew.


"Rude, vile pigs!" he shouted at the reporters at the Chiang Kai Shek airport after he arrived shortly after midnight.


"Do you know what that means? Rude, vile pigs. That's what all of you are."


One of the photographers shouted back: "Why don't you get out of Taiwan?"


John replied: "We'd love to get out of Taiwan if it's full of people like you. Pig! Pig!"


The star, who recently performed in Shanghai and Hong Kong, is scheduled to leave after his first performance in Taiwan on Thursday

Sal, I've been to Taipei, it's actually pretty nice, I mean, where celebrities like me stay and at the airport. Elton must have been low on dolls or something and was grouchy. Plus, that grody airport is brand-new. I can't understand his hissy-fit!

Have you seen the TV footage yet Sal? It is classic!

Did you see Tantrums and Tiaras when he freaked out when someone yelled Yoo-Hoo when he played tennis? That was me.

Well I can understand the meltdown but I wouldn't have done it in public. Maybe when you're a star such as yourself or elton you can do whatever the hell you want and not have to worry about the bad press you might receive.

No I missed Tantrums and Tiaras. I figured I have enough first hand experience with both myself so I didn't need to watch it.

Elton John, hmmm, I'd say he's 4 Carnie Wilsons, a Delta Burke, and a Monica Lewinsky.
