And In Other Formerly-Relevant Pop Icon News...

Found these two little tidbits back-to-back in the Entertainment news section of My Yahoo: The Anti-Defamation League is seeking an apology from deranged psychopath Michael Jackson stemming from his (latest) round of anti-semitic comments; and Elton John has announced his plans to marry his long-time companion David Furnish as soon as same-sex marriage becomes semi-legal in the UK next month. Personally, I'm not a big fan of either -- can't say I've cared for anything loony-tune Michael has done since puberty (his, not mine), and, aside from "Rocket Man" -- hey, what a great song -- I've never found Elton to have much bearing on my life. Still, for what it's worth, it's interesting to note that Michael, notwithstanding his (admitted) sharing his bed with little boys and (alleged) molestation of little boys, would still be welcome as a Catholic priest, as he is apparently heterosexual and does not support the "gay culture"; in contrast, Elton, who, as far as I know, is never alleged to have engaged in any improprieties with children, is deemed unqualified. What a great world we live in.
