Elton John Likens Miley Cyrus to Michael Jackson, Labels Singer "Meltdown Waiting to Happen"

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Miley Cyrus may be worried about Liam Hemsworth cheating on her, but Elton John is worried about something even more pressing:

This singer's life.

Talking to The Australian about this Twerking Wrecking Ball rider, the legendary artist offered a few words of warning for Cyrus:

"I see a meltdown waiting to happen,And she's so young! But she's got two records in the top 20, so who is going to stop her?"

Certainly not Miley's father, Billy Ray Cyrus, who reacted to his daughter's controversial Wrecking Ball video by simply gushing over her "God given talent."

Saying he can "spot a car crash before it happens," John told the newspaper that he knew Michael Jackson was going to die because he's "been doing drugs for so long" and he worries that Miley is headed down a similar path.

Heck, the same can sort of be said for Lady Gaga.

“With Gaga - who I love, she’s the godmother to our children - I’d like to be able to talk to her right now, but I can’t get through to her," Elton said. "And there are times when you have to listen. When your persona begins to take over your music and becomes more important, you enter a dangerous place. Once you have people around you who don’t question you, you’re in a dangerous place."

Have Miley and the Lady entered this place?

Will there candles burn out long before they should?

Let's hope not.

Yes she is on drugs, it's in her RS interview, she's talking about weed, mixing it with other stuff and having strange trips, and Ecstasy. Weed isn't harmless I've seen people messed up by it and start on the road to harder drugs. And he's very perceptive about Gaga. David Bowie did personas but didn't let them take over, his focus stayed on the music. Gaga isn't using her real talent.

I agree with him, but she's not anywhere near like Michael Jackson was IMO. She's more like Brittney Spears, her own worst enemy until someone steps in to care-take her and her interests. I just hope they do it before she destroys herself. She's already a ways down that road already.

There;s no evidence Miley's on drugs though. Until such tin=me as there is, my verdict is that she's just attention-seeking...

If a icon like Elton Jihn can't get in touch with the woman he named his sons godmother, then something amiss. Maybe he choose the wrong person. Miley, like MJ both had their childhoods taken away. Is Miley actually on drugs--I thought it was just poor judgement.

Miley is a talented girl, just note her comedic timing as an actor. Not sure her recent music is really about music and art, seems more about "playing the game" and about "getting people to talk about her". Maybe it is slightly drug-laced or that she is enjoying her wild youth because she felt (as she's said) that she had to be a grown up as a child. Perhaps her need to strip down without clothes has something to do with being teased about her chubbiness and "cankles" back in her early teens? Now she wants to show the world her body is beautiful and that she is in control, perhaps be the manipulator rather than the manipulated. Her extra-long tongue stuck out all the time seems more related to pornography and less about making an artistic statement. Miley, there is nothing wrong with fame and attention when used for a higher purpose.

But she's not in control Jasmine. She's frantic and it's showing in her behavior.

I wonder what Elton is insinuating is going on with Gaga. They were so close, and she's even his children's Godmother. Yet, he isn't able to get in touch with her? Is he saying she's on drugs and shutting him out? Clearly, he's not saying they haven't talked lately merely because she is busy. Hmm. Oh and Miley... no one would be shocked if she melts down. I don't necessarily see it happening soon though.
