Sir Elton John: I was a monster. I’m a better person now that I’ve got children

Sir Elton John revealed that fatherhood has helped him to consign his tantrums to the past, as he was honoured with the first Brits Icon award.

The singer performed a career-spanning set at the London Palladium, which was interspersed with surprise video messages from friends and colleagues in recognition of his work.

Between songs he spoke candidly, paying tribute to his partner David Furnish, 50, and their sons Zachary, aged two, and Elijah, who is almost nine months old. Of his infamous temper, Sir Elton, 66, admitted: "We're all monsters sometimes. I've changed a lot, I've done a lot of work on myself.

"My partner has helped me and confronted me on issues, and helped me become a better person.

"Having the children is just the icing on the cake. You have to behave yourself around them. You can't swear, you can't do this, because it will reflect on their behaviour.

To say that this 'arrangement' is anything other than SICK and PERVERSE is an understatement! How far we have come that society ALLOWS 2 homos to raise kids! God help them and God help us all!

That's right. Now that Sir John has his own children, he no longer has the worry of pestering your child and mine. He has his own little captive harem that he can pester as the urge hits him. Poor kids.

Having children and learning to love others more than yourself; it is amazing how much more fulfilling it is when we live as God intended for us. Just make sure you are living as God intends and don't accept any cheap substitutes - cheap substitutes for God or godliness.
