"It Makes You Look Fat": Elton John Opens Up About His Feud With Tina Turner In His Memoir 'Me'

Date October 11, 2019

Sir Elton John wholly bared his heart to the world about numerous situations, pains, feuds, struggles, and many more in his upcoming memoir, titled Me.

The British singer wrote down the most exciting, shocking, and unexpected parts of his life on the paper, including his health issues, a broken relationship with his mother, and various situations regarding Princess Diana.

Grammy-winning star opened up about his feud with Tina Turner, who supposedly called him "fat" and maltreated him, in an extract of his book, obtained by Daily Mail.

Two biggest personalities, Sir Elton John and Tina Turner, planned to tour together in 1997, but they constantly clashed during rehearsals as she didn't treat him nicely whatsoever.

I've thrown plenty of tantrums in my time, but there are limits: There's an unspoken rule that musicians don't treat their fellow musicians like s***.

The Your Song hitmaker added:

She didn't like my hair, she didn't like the color of my piano, and she didn't like my clothes. 'You wear too much Versace, and it makes you look fat — you have to wear Armani.'

Once, the father-of-two was so shattered that he burst into tears and called his now-husband, David Furnish, to tell how much Tina Turner "sounded" like his mother.

Sir Elton John also got candid about his turbulent relationship with his parent, Sheila Farebrother, who wasn't fair, kind, and mother-like to him.

Sheila once appeared at the "most important day" of Elton's life as "in character as a raving sociopath." It was a heartbreaking moment for the singer, but when he found out that she wanted to break his civil relationship with his husband, he began to avoid her up until 2017 when she passed away.

Such biographies always give an in-depth insight into a person's life. In fact, when you read memoir and all situations, you realize that everybody is destined to pass through hardships and find a strength inside their own self.
