Elton John Hates American Idol, Loves Lady Gaga
Elton John was approached about being a judge on American Idol, but turned down the offer for one very good reason: he hates the show!
"I'm not a fan of talent shows... I couldn't do it because I won't slag anyone off," the singer told UK's The Daily Mail. "There have been some good acts, but the only way to sustain a career is to pay your dues in small, s**t clubs."
