Elton John confesses: “I wasted a lot of time with drugs’
Laughing and joking, Elton John has reached the venerable age of 65. He says: “There are people who live much longer.” Sure, but none of them had a reckless life, like the British singer, except maybe Keith Richards. The following statement, issued to lead Matt Lauer, sheds new light on the most difficult moments in the life of Elton John.
I wasted a good chunk of my life. I was drugged and egotistical. There were people, friends that I died with him but that did not stop me from continuing to live that life, which is the most terrible addiction. You know, it’s a really bad disease.
Already. How bad?
I came seizures and became blue. Find me on the floor and put me to bed and after 40 minutes I was already there that I did another strip. I stayed awake, I smoked some reefer, drank a bottle of Johnnie Walker and I fell asleep for three days. Then I fell asleep for a day and a half, I woke up and I was very hungry because I had not eaten. I did three bacon sandwiches, a pot of ice cream and then I vomited all because I became bulimic. And then we start everything from scratch. My life was a tragedy.
Now you too are shocked that he is still alive, right?
