Life Elton John stands up for Ellen DeGeneres By weekster Posted on October 15, 2019 2 min read Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Elton John (72) thinks it is great for Ellen DeGeneres (61) that she stands up for what she believes in, he says in an interview with NPR on Sunday. He thereby joins the group of famous people who support the blonde, after the presenter brought out the news that she was friends with former President George W. Bush (73). “People must come together. They must respect each other’s view of life” “George Bush has made many mistakes. I have made many mistakes. Ellen DeGeneres has made many mistakes. People must come together. They must respect each other’s view of life. Except when it comes to heresy, but I think George Bush is not such a person, “says the singer. Many people fell over the friendship that came to light after taking pictures of Ellen and Bush at a football game. “The fact is that I’m friends with George Bush,” admitted the talk show host in her program. “I’m friends with a lot of people who don’t believe the same as me. We are all different and I think we have forgotten that it is good that we are all different.” Familiarities such as Reese Witherspoon and Kristen Bell supported her in that statement. Others, such as Mark Ruffalo, called the alleged war crimes of the former president too big a difference to overlook.
