Elton John sat down with Molly Meldrum for a special interview that aired on Channel Seven’s Sunday Night on the weekend. The two are old friends and in Molly’s voice over he revealed that Elton was one of the first people to call after Molly’s accident before Christmas last year. Elton said to Molly, “Without making people dissolve into tears, you are the best thing that ever happened to Australian music. You’re a legend, and you’re a friend, and you’ve stuck by me through the good times and the bad times, and now the good times again, because you are institution, and it’s great to see you back.” Conversation quickly turned to Elton’s son with David Furnish, 19-month-old Zachary, and the proud dad shared photos from his iPad, saying, “I’m obsessed with him. I love him so much.” This interview has also made international headlines due to Elton’s latest quotes about Madonna — the two are famously feuding. But Elton had nothing but praise for younger pop stars like Katy Perry, Rihanna and Lady Gaga, who is Zachary’s godmother: “She’s amazing. Wherever she is in the world, she sends texts saying, 'How is he?' She comes and bathes him, she sings to him — she’s a good godmother. She really pays attention.” Watch the full chat here.
