Elton John Now 100% Insufferable

This story just cracks me up, even though I know that it sucks. In our 12-Step culture it’s OK to humiliate people in the name of love.  Elton John truly has become the crazy cat lady (speaking of Billy Joel):

“He’s going to hate me for this, but every time he goes to rehab they’ve been light. When I went to rehab, I had to clean the floors. He goes to rehab where they have TVs. I love you, Billy, and this is tough love. Billy, you have your demons and you’re not going to get rid of them at rehab light. You’ve got to be serious. People adore you, they love you and respect you. You should be able to do something better than what you’re doing now.”

Watch the video. John ridicules the idea of bringing your dog to rehab, as if bringing something important and life-affirming, that brings you genuine joy in life is just stupid. It’s not going to work unless you completely debase yourself.

In fact, bringing your dog is probably the most soundly therapeutic thing you could do.

I hope the message Billy Joel sent went something like this: “Go shit in your hat, Lois.”
