Elton John turned 74 in March and to celebrate the day, fellow singer Ed Sheeran surprised him with a gift.
The multi-award winning artist shared a humorous story about the situation during an interview on Hit 109.9 on Thursday.Carrie and Tommy Show.. She said the 30-year-old gave her a large copy of the male penis that would be displayed in the garden.
“We’ve been friends for years because I used to handle it. I’m a big marble penis. It’s really big, it’s beautifully made. It’s solid marble.”
He confessed that he did not know why Sheeran gave him the gift when he joked that maybe he had to tell her what he had always done. But the statue never saw the light of day because John’s husband, David Furnish, thought it was too rude for a public display. He was also worried about what his two children would think so he had to hide it.
“It’s hidden in an area of the house where they won’t see it,” he said, referring to his two sons, 10-year-old Zachary and 8-year-old Elijah.
“What do you buy a man who has everything? A big marble penis!” John said happily.
In the same interview, the “Rocket Man” hitmaker also talked about how he influenced the Lion’s costume for the “Bad Habits” music video. He told her to retire the baggy shirt and trousers and then attached it to the Donatella Versi. The video shows the young artist looking unrecognizable in a pink pair.
I said, ‘Listen – if you’re making a video of’ bad habits’, you have to like it. He likes it, it’s not like I’m forcing him. [do] Whatever he doesn’t want to do, “John shared.
Sheeran has a bad sense of humor when it comes to birthday gifts. In addition to John, he also gave “Friends” star Courtney Cox a “leather jump mask”. He said he probably has 12 of them and shared that just for fun, he hides “this leather S&M mask” in people’s bedrooms so they can see it in the drawers.
