Sir Elton John is weighing in on Miley Cyrus, saying he thinks she’s a “meltdown waiting to happen”.
The iconic British singer made comments to The Australian, and had some sobering comments regarding the twerking diva. But Elton John didn’t stop with Miley, he also had some advice for another diva, Lady Gaga.
Regarding Miley Cyrus, the Candles In The Wind singer had this to say,
“I look at Miley Cyrus and I see a meltdown waiting to happen,” he told The Australian. “And she’s so young! But she’s got two records in the top 20, so who is going to stop her?”
So Elton John seems to think that as long as she’s selling, nobody is going to tell Miley that she is doing anything wrong.
These comments come in the heels of the announcement that Cyrus and fiance Liam Hemsworth have officially called of their wedding. The news came via each of their reps as reported by The Inquisitr.
Sir Elton has a point, if only the seemingly out of control Cyrus would listen to someone who has been there and done that.
John says that he saw similar behavior from the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson, which is indeed sobering, as we all know how that ended up.
Elton Johns told the newpaper he can “spot a car crash before it happens,” adding he knew the icon was going to die.
“He’d been doing drugs for so long, he’d been a mess for so long –- and I’ve known Michael since he was 12 or 13 –- that it was never going to happen.”
Elton John also thinks Lady Gaga should watch her behavior,
“With Gaga -– who I love, she’s the godmother to our children –- I’d like to be able to talk to her right now, but I can’t get through to her.” the singer said.
“And there are times when you have to listen. When your persona begins to take over your music and becomes more important, you enter a dangerous place. Once you have people around you who don’t question you, you’re in a dangerous place.”
From all appearances Sir Elton John is more concerned about Miley Cyrus’ current state of mind than her own father, Billy Ray Cyrus, who stated after the disastrous VMAs performance that he’s supportive of her daughter’s career moves. Really?
