The quoted text above was actually said by no one other than me right now, but I'm practicing to be more like tabloids with my headlines so people will be more interested. Anyway, the real story here is that the mother of the baby that Elton John and his partner want to adopt is pleading for him to drop his plans so she can get him back. Probably would've been a little bit smarter to think of that BEFORE giving the kid to an orphanage, but not everyone can be as wise as I am. AFP has the story:
"I love him so much and desperately want him back so I can hold him," she told the tabloid in Mariupol, eastern Ukraine.
The woman, an impoverished alcoholic who is HIV positive, had both of her children taken away from her by social workers, according to the newspaper.
"I know Elton fell in love with my Lev. I saw him holding him and kissing him on TV and in the newspapers. I understand Elton's feelings. Lev is a very funny and cheerful boy. It's impossible not to love him," she said.
So this little kid's options are a weird as hell 63 year old male musician and his husband or an alcoholic bum girl with HIV. And I thought my upbringing sucked. Good luck, kid.
