Did Elton John Have Chat With Vladimir Putin?
Elton John has been having a pretty weird week on social media. The openly gay singer said recently that he was contacted by Russian President Vladimir Putin, who wanted to talk to him about gay rights. This came after John visited with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko to talk about LGBT rights and equality.
However, Putin’s people are denying that the phone call happened. According to Putin’s cabinet, there’s a good chance that John was at the butt of joke and that someone was prank calling him.
According to Putin’s press secretary Dmitri Peskov, there no conversation between Putin and John and that this claim by the sing “does not correspond with reality.”
John said not released any comments about these new claims, however he did tell BBC in an interview that the call definitely did happen and that he would love to sit down and talk to Putin.
