Elton John says he really doesn't know what's in store for him after his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour.
A lengthy segment on CBS Sunday Morning ended with Sir Elton declaring that, "I'm 72 years of age. I feel as if I'm 18 and I still have a lot of living to do -- hopefully, with my children. Who knows what I'm going to be doing? I really don't know and I don't care to know. I just want to be surprised."
In another weekend interview, this one on NPR, the Rocketman added his two cents to the flap over Ellen DeGeneres sitting with George W. Bush at a recent Dallas Cowboys game. Elton says he admires Ellen for saying it's OK to be friends with people who don't share all your beliefs.
He adds: "George Bush has made a lot of mistakes. I made a lot of mistakes. Ellen DeGeneres has made a lot of mistakes. People need to come together…They need to respect people’s view on life. Except when it’s heresy, and I don’t think George Bush is that kind of guy.” (Rolling Stone)
