Birthdays are one of the best days of the year. Since it´s literally a day dedicated to you. As you get pampered, gifts and cake…. especially cake. Besides you get to hang around with all your friends and family in an awesome party.
This past Saturday, March 25th, an epic birthday party took place in Los Angeles. Due to the fact that it was Sir Elton John’s birthday, and he celebrated it in his characteristic pompous fabulous way.
Elton didn’t only celebrate his life but also his 50 years of career and writing collaboration with Bernie Taupin. Who helped him wrote many of his iconic hits. Like “Rocket Man,” “Crocodile Rock,” “Tiny Dancer,” “Candle in the Wind,” “Bennie and the Jets,” “Your Song,” “The Bitch Is Back,” and many others.
Also, during the party affectional tributes and a recognition of his achievements during his career were paid. Recognising him as one of the best-selling musicians in history, a Tonys, Oscars, and Grammys winner, one of the first openly gay pop celebrities, and an AIDS fighter since 1993.
Star guest list
Since Elton is a bright star, along with his very long and successful career, he has many famous friends. Who not only share their celebrity status and love for music. But also genuinely like him for who he is.
As some of the guest stars were Lady Gaga, Ryan Adams, Stevie Wonder, Rosanne Cash, Katy Perry, Tom Ford, Ryan Phillipe, Neil Patrick Harris, Billie Jean King, Jon Hamm, James Corden and many others. Other of Elton’s friends who couldn’t make it to the party send their best wishes to him via a video. Some of this were Bono, Prince Harry, Ellen DeGeneres and David Beckham.
As you would’ve expected of an Elton John’s birthday party the music and a show were a must. Since he didn’t only gave a speech about why music was so fundamental to his life. As he stated: “Music has been the one constant thing in my life. As a little boy, when my parents fought, I went into my room and listened to music. When I was on drugs, I would sob and listen to music and pray for the day when I get well.”
Also, the whole party was an event, hosted by Rob Lowe. That will benefit Elton’s Aids Foundation and UCLA’s Hammer Museum. Another thing that made the event an incredible show was Lady Gaga’s performance along Stevie Wonder wishing Elton happy birthday. Also, Gaga, Ryan Adams, and Rosanne Cash performed.
