Anderson Cooper

Elton John Announces Retirement After 50 Years!

After almost 50 years touring around the world, fabulous musical icon Elton John has announced that he will be retiring after his farewell tour Farewell Yellow Brick Road.

Elton John sat down with Anderson Cooper for an exclusive YouTube streaming event to make the announcement. Last year, Elton suffered from a very serious bacterial infection, but that didn't stop him, nor is it the reason why he is retiring. In reality, Elton shared that he would like to devote his time after his tour to his family. He married his husband, David Furnish, in 2014 and they have two children with whom Elton wishes to spend as much time with.

The tour will last three years and that will be the end for the crocodile rocker.

During the interview, Elton shared with Anderson:

It’s a way of saying thank you and it’s a way of going out with a bang. I don’t want to go out with a whimper, I want to go out with a big bang.

I want to leave people thinking, I saw the last tour and it was fantastic.

The interview begins with a beautiful homage to Elton's career as a powerhouse in the music industry and as a gay icon. A career that skyrocketed after a performance at The Troubadour in West Hollywood in 1970.

Ticket sales for the Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour go on sale February 2nd. If you want to experience his music live...this will be your last chance!

Anderson Cooper Almost Gets Too Kinky For Day-Time Talk

Silver daddy Anderson Cooper sat in for Ryan Seacrest as a co-host of Live Kelly & Ryan and his  morning coffee talk with Kelly Ripa almost got a little too kinky for day-time talk.

When doing the usual morning talk show banter, Anderson mentioned an interesting fact about the first ATM (automated teller machine). A harmless piece of trivia turned innuendo that Anderson started to go in the wrong direction.

I can’t remember my first ATM—oh, I remember my first ATM. You know what they say, " you never forget your first ATM"…one of those beautiful experiences.

We all know that Anderson wasn’t talking about PINs, but definitely was talking about deposits and withdrawals.

Check out the video below—but skip to 04:11 to get a laugh of the silver fox’s fumble.

 

 

What Is Anderson Cooper's Biggest Turn-On?

You know you’ve been hanging out with your BFF too much if you know them better than they know themselves. Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper, the dynamic AC², are no exception. The two have been friends for many years and have been touring together with their AC² engagements. But what could beat a couple of gal pals just shootin’ the shit?

On a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live, Olivia Wilde tested the two’s friendship by quizzing them in a game called One, Two, AC! During the game, it looks like Andy was more into the game than Anderson was—but Anderson gets to throw some shade when it comes to talking about money!

But the juiciest part of the game came when Andy revealed what turns on his BFF the most--an answer that took Anderson by surprise (Did Andy hit the nail on the head?)

Watch the clip here:

 

 

Don’t tell Andy any of your secrets! The face that Anderson makes on the count of three when Andy shouts “Latinos!” is absolutely hilarious. I’ll just get in that line with the rest of the Latinos who now want some attention from the silver daddy.
