Elton John wants to make hip-hop album

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060825/...ple_elton_john

This could wind up like the Chris Gaines mess all over again.

An old gay white guy rapping? That won't fly. But as they would have said on seinfeld, "Not that theres anything wrong with that"

Elton is a musical genius, and if he wants to do a hip-hop album, you can bet it will top notch, whether it's a big seller or not.

He might as well go for it, he's got nothing to lose, he's set for life with his past music. I think it's great that he wants to try something new. It may flop, but it may be good. Should be interesting to see what he does.

I've never known age or sexuality to have anything to do with musical sucess or failure. Your either talented or you not.

I am trying to envision it but just can't. I know he is a true genius but it just seems wrong. Hopefully he won't be dancing.



I know there is no comparison but I just saw 5 seconds of Kevin Federline, I felt like ....
