I think we probably all knew it, but Elton John told Matt Lauer yesterday that he has had a lot of unprotected sex. He blames it on all the drugs he took. Oh, and the booze. Oh, and because he was always horny. Elton says he is HIV- which is astonishing considering that he said he went unprotected through the first part of the AIDS crisis. One thing Elton has always been is open about everything in his life. I'm sure there is lots that he is not shared, but there has been plenty more that he has and that most celebrities would keep private. The interview is set to air next week.
