recently sat down with Noisey for an interview
, and things suddenly veered into a conversation about Young Thug
, who Elton says he loves before comparing him to John Lennon. Hell yeah, Sir Elton rules.
I love that record! I actually asked [Universal Music CEO] David Joseph about it. I heard a track on Beats 1 and I loved it so much. But heís got himself into trouble, hasnít he? I love all of that, itís unexpected. I remember when Blind Faith came out, with a nude girl and John & Yoko, you had to buy it in a black plastic bag. And you should be able to do things like that but we donít live in that kind of world anymore.
