It’s fair to say that 2015 was a year of many terrible news stories, but there have also been some extremely funny stories. I’ve chosen mine on the basis that I think it’s extremely clever; Elton John’s mum books an Elton John TRIBUTE for her birthday!
It involves the well known singer-songwriter Elton John and his mother, Sheila Farebrother.
Elton and Sheila fell out in 2008 after a comment she made about his husband and the pair never spoke again.
In March 2015, Sheila was to celebrate her 90th birthday and arranged a huge party. At this point you would wonder: is she going to invite Elton? Will she try and patch up their relationship? Perhaps let bygones be bygones?
Oh no. Instead she booked and Elton John tribute to perform at her party. ‘Ultimate Elton‘ was even joined by Kiki Dee for a song during the performance.
The woman is a genius…
