Elton John spoke to Ozzy’s Osbourne wife, Sharon Osbourne on her wildly successful daytime panel talk show, The Talk. Here, the two discuss the death of George Michael, and Ozzy’s reaction was the day he died. Elton John shared this ‘gross’ kiss with Eddie Vedder recently.
Elton John ‘threatened’ by boyfriend with Freddie Mercury. Elton John controversially says that Michael ‘seemed uncomfortable in his own skin about being gay’ during this feature and seemed to hint at the fact that the former WHAM singer did not want to get any help during his last few years alive. Alternative Nation transcribed the comments below. Ozzy Osbourne made this brutal revelation about Elton John.
Sharon Osbourne: Some people have accepted it and some people haven’t, like George Michael. He just couldn’t –
Elton John: He couldn’t get it, George. I mean, and he resented the fact that I hinted that he change his life a little bit and he would be happier if he tries something else. The person has gotta want it. It’s like me, with in the end you’re gonna really want it. I had two alternatives. One to die and one to live and I wanted to live. Yet, that’s the difference, if you want it, and poor George didn’t want it.
Osbourne: I don’t think he did either.
John: I remember talking to do you during the day he died on Christmas day.
Osbourne: That’s right.
John: I phoned you and I was in Aspen and Ozzy [Osbourne] got on the phone and he said: “he didn’t want to be here.” I thought that was the most succinct, apt thing, he didn’t want to be here.
Osbourne: He was so uncomfortable.
John: He was so uncomfortable in his skin about being gay even though he said he was.
