    Default Elton John searches the papers for libellous stories

    Elton's Libellous Read.

    Superstar Sir ELTON JOHN reads every British newspaper every day to search for libellous stories about him.

    The YOUR SONG star has been victorious in several high-profile suits brought against British papers in the past and continues to check them regularly.

    He says, "I always go to the tabloids first, just to see if there's anything written about me that I can sue them for.

    "Then I read the Guardian, the Times, the Independent, the Telegraph and the International Herald".

    Despite his legal battles, John prefers the British to the American press, explaining, "You can read the New York Times, and by the time you get to the second page you're so bored that you throw the bloody thing on the floor. It's unreadable".

    Is he running out of money or something?? Who else would do this unless you needed the damn money!! He's such a tool.

    It's not like it's a long read. British papers are very different, quick reading, small bites of information and a fair dash of sensationalism. I've heard the 'boring' complaint against American newspapers before. I think it's because more American newspapers focus on actual hard news and not celebrity fluff and who's Elton banging this week.

    ^^That's definitely true of the tabloids. No news to speak of, just pages of crap about Sienna/Kate/Jade Goody snorting coke/falling drunk out of a nighclub/shagging someone etc. There are 'proper' papers too though, but the circulation of them is a fraction of what the tabloids sell. Scary really.

    Eh, it's the same way with, for example, the New York Times and the New York Post. Take a wild guess which one sells boatloads more than the other. And Elton's just becoming a boring old queen. Save the drama for the stage, Elton.

    Well his career is pretty stagnant at the moment so I guess he's got time on his hands.

    He's always been a pompous ass. To even presume that the papers are still talking about him daily is a pretty presumptuous statement to make.
