Elton John: Miley Cyrus Is a ‘Meltdown Waiting to Happen’
With his music career spanning almost half a century long, Elton John knows a few things about the industry.
“I look at Miley Cyrus and I see a meltdown waiting to happen,” he tells the publication. “And she’s so young! But she’s got two records in the top 20, so who is going to stop her?”
And the former Disney starlet isn’t the only one who “can’t stop.” (Sorry, we couldn’t help it).
According to Sir Elton, the godmother of his children, Lady Gaga, is also bound for danger.
“With Gaga — who I love, she’s the godmother to our children — I’d like to be able to talk to her right now, but I can’t get through to her. And there are times when you have to listen,” he says. “When your persona begins to take over your music and becomes more important, you enter a dangerous place. Once you have people around you who don’t question you, you’re in a dangerous place.”
“Sometimes you try and reach out to someone and tell them they’re going to have a car crash, like I did with Ryan Adams, Ryan didn’t listen to me. He had the car crash, he recovered, and now he’s back and on great form,” he continues. “People either listen to you or they don’t.”
