Elton John and David Furnish 'will marry'

Mar 29 2014, 6:26am CDT | by

Sir Elton John and David Furnish "feel it is their duty" to get married.

The pair were one of the first gay couples to enter into a civil partnership in 2005, and the star's partner has revealed they are planning their wedding now that same-sex marriage is legal in the UK.

He told Attitude magazine: "Elton and I will marry - as a high-profile couple, we feel it is our duty to do it, to make sure that everyone knows that this is something that many gay men living in this country never dreamed would happen.

"When it was announced that gay couples were able to obtain a civil partnership, Elton and I did so on the day it came into law.

"As something of a showman, [Elton] is aware that whatever he says and does, people will sit up and take notice -so what better way to celebrate that historic moment in time."

David also noted there was a "massive difference between" using the word "partner" and "husband" when describing a relationship.

He added: "Elton and I both think there is a massive difference between calling someone your 'partner' and calling them your 'husband'.

"Partner' is such an impersonal word and doesn't adequately describe the love we have for each other.

"When Zachary and Elijah are grown up and having children of their own, they will - hopefully - be living in a world where everyone can be equal, when being married isn't about whether you're straight or gay, but simply about being human."

Sep 1 2014 11:05am CDT | Source: WWTDD.com

Gay Michael Sam did not make the final cut for the St. Louis Rams start of the season roster. This could mean an abrupt end to the ESPN investigation into how Sam’s teammates were handling his alluring gay penis in the locker room. I don’t mean literally handling. Or do I? ESPN 360 that shit. Michael Sam made history on draft day when he kissed his boyfriend with a mouth full of cake on national television to signify ...

Petition Demands Knighthood for Ozzy Osbourne

Aug 4 2014 8:59am CDT | Source: Fresh 102.7

By Philip Cosores Let’s be real: if we were living in medieval times, Ozzy Osborne is probably one of the last people you’d want given a sword and ordered to protect your life. But, then again, Paul McCartney and Elton John wouldn’t necessarily be much higher on the list. These are just honorary titles, ones that mean a whole lot to the person given the title, and Ozzy Osbourne has already said he “couldn’t think of anything b ...

Through The Past Darkly: Eminem’s Marshall Mather’s LP

Aug 3 2014 6:19pm CDT | Source: All HipHop

The pieces most vital to the lifeblood of culture hardly ever get their fair share of credit when history is discussed. Sure, civil wars, technological inventions and diplomats are important, but the arts have a strong influence on the course of history, whether you choose to believe it or not. Anything one finds valuable or depraved about our generation can take solace in the fact that it all started with Em. Whether you were white, black, yellow, Puerto Rican or Haitan, you had the album ...
