Sir Elton John turned 74 back in march, and he received one of the most surprising present one could ever get. According to the 'Rocket Man' singer, who is close friends with Ed Sheeran, the latter gave him a very NSFW present which consisted of a giant marble penis. “For my birthday this year, [Ed] gave me a giant marble penis,” John revealed while having a conversation in the radio with Hit 109.9's Carrie and Tommy Show.
The “Candle in the Wind” singer discussed his theories that prompted Sheeran to give him the unusual gift, when he said jokingly, “I don't know if that's because I've always been a p**k or what.” However, he continued and complimented the artifact saying, “It's really big, it's beautifully made.” The exact perfect words a gift of this kind could received.
As per what the award-winning musician admitted on the radio show, his husband David Furnish didn't exactly allowed him to put the X-rated statue in their garden; particularly because he was worried about their sons Zachary, who is 10 years old, and 8-year-old Elijah, getting an eyeful of the extravagant sculpture.
So, as for where is the statue right now or what the couple decided to do with it, he revealed that currently “it's hidden in an area in the house where they wouldn't see it!” Considering their possibilities and the size of their estate, it is safe to say that the kids won't be finding the naughty present any time soon.
It's been known that Elton John and Ed Sheeran are good friends; in fact, Elton also revealed that he's been giving him som fashion advice. He even offered him to put him in touch with fashionista mogul Donatella Versace at some point. “I said, 'Ed – you've worn the baggy shirts and the trousers, it's got you so far but it's now time to make a change.” Fabulous fashion input, from someone who knows what he's talking about.
In fact, the outcome has been fantastic. Or at least, that's what Elton John says, as he's taking credit for the bright pink suit Sheeran sports in his Bad Habits video. According to the 'Tiny Dancer' singer, he told him, “you've got to look great (in the video). He loves it, it's not as if I'm forcing him to (do) anything he doesn't want to do.”
This is not the first time Sheeran shows his penchant for gifting raunchy presents. Back in June, the musician revealed that he plays a routine prank on Courteney Cox everytime he stays at her place, which consists in ordering leather bondage masks to her home. So far, the 'Friends' star has accumulated 12 of such masks thanks to her friend's habit.
