Speaking at his concert in Verona, Italy, the legendary musician said he was ashamed of the way his native land dealt with an issue of Brexit, causing conflicts among people. “I am sick to death of Brexit. I am a European. I am not a stupid, colonial, imperialist English idiot,” Sir Elton said, noting that Brexit, to his mind, was ridiculous and not economically viable, and many of the British folks have been misinformed about it. John was performing on his last ever world tour, Farewell Yellow Brick Road, when he made the comments. The musical Rocketman, which focuses on Elton John’s life, is in cinemas now. Welsh actor Taron Egerton stars as Sir Elton, Richard Madden plays his manager and first lover John Reid. Both actors are not gay but they don’t treat sexuality as an obstacle and say filming a gay sex scene was not at all problematic.
