The Best Advice Elton John Ever Got

Recently we popped over to meet with Sir Elton John.


Elton John needs no introduction—so we’ll keep it brief—but we were very excited to spend a little time with the legendary singer-songwriter for our monthly series Best Advice. Even by his standards, the 72-year-old’s closing out a fantastically busy year, looping the globe for his farewell tour as well as promoting his page-turner autobiography simply titled Me, which comes hot on the heels of his Golden Globe-nominated biopic Rocketman.

Given his career has spanned half a century, his popularity flourishing through wild trends and changeable decades, the flamboyant singer certainly has a lot of experience to pull from and plenty of advice to dispense, but that doesn’t mean he’s above taking counsel from others. So without further adieu, please watch his episode above, which premiered this morning on Billboard.

Watch Elton’s episode of Best Advice, above, and check out all our previous installments with Lizzo, Tierra Whack, Quincy Jones, Ciara, Rick Ross, Karen O, and many more right here.
