Elton John Says He Never Considered ‘Coming Out’ Because He Felt His Sexuality Was Common Knowledge
There seem to be more and more celebrities and entertainers “coming out” than ever before and part of that is the public’s acceptance that’s built up over the years. But for Elton John, the singer says he never considered it that big of a thing when he made his announcement in 1988.
John took part in a two-part interview with the Today Show. Earlier this week, he spoke about the effects that his drug and alcohol abuse had on his life. The singer is promoting a new book, ‘Love is the Cure: On Life, Loss and the End of AIDS.’ The book recounts his emergence from addiction amidst a world in which many friends were dying.
