Elton John's Worried About Lady Gaga, Talks To Her Parents

Hey Lady Gaga, Elton John is worried about your health. He thinks you're “frail.” Eat something. Call your parents, they miss you.

So what qualifies Sir Elton to pass diagnosis (judgment?) on Gaga in a recent interview with The Guardian?

Apparently they’re friends. And not just like friendly at cocktail parties and award shows friendly, like they actually swapped cell numbers and addresses. Gaga is even the godmother of Elton‘s year-and-a-half old son, Zachary, with partner David Furnish.

From Gaga to Jen: Famous Godparents

Of his choice to invite a woman who’s famous for wearing raw animal flesh to the baptism of his son, Elton assures us that despite all the costumes, "When you get to the real person under there, there's a real simple person under there who loves her parents.”

So now that we’ve established Elton’s inside track, let’s hear what else he divulged, “She is frail, and she doesn't eat when she should, and she's a girl, and it's tougher for a girl. She works really hard. She will be in Denmark one night and Saudi Arabia the next. I know how tiny she is and I do worry about her, yes."

This isn’t the first we’ve heard of Gaga and health issues, over the years she’s had to cancel a gig or two due to exhaustion, and has been accused of having issues with food and then even opened up herself about a teen bulimia past.

But Elton goes on to really make a case for an eminent collapse, "I look at Gaga and I think, 'How does she do it?' I talk to her mom and dad about it. They worry."

So let’s sum it all up: girls are smaller than boys and they have to work harder than them. They are pressured to maintain a certain physicality. Constantly touring the world as a dancing/singing megastar is exhausting so you might not always have time for dinner. Oh yeah, and familial ties are important to every one, regardless of their day job.

Thanks for clearing all that up Elton.
