"Bobby's not good for her, and because of the addiction thing, she keeps going back. The writing was on the wall many, many years ago with that one."

We smell an Elton John/Bobby Brown feud in the works! Jello wrestling, anyone?

John, a longtime gay activist, also shared his thoughts with Access Hollywood on the speculation over the sexuality of Clay Aiken, based on a recent interview the singer gave with Diane Sawyer.

He understands that Sawyer had to ask Aiken if he is gay, John says, but he's personally not interested in the answer.

"I don't even care if Clay Aiken is gay or not," John says of the American Idol star. "It's none of my business."

Elton also discusses his own dangerous past and how it inspired him to become an AIDS activist today.

"I've dodged so many bullets," he says. "Not just because of unsafe sex, but because of the amount of drugs I did, the amount of alcohol, the amount of work I was doing. I started the Elton John AIDS Foundation because I got so lucky."

John's foundation has distributed more than $60 million to global HIV/AIDS prevention efforts since it was established in 1992.
