Elton John is one of the most famous musicians to ever walk the face of the earth. John, a self proclaimed bisexual at one point, revealed his true sexual orientation in an issue of The Rolling Stone. He revealed in this magazine that he was in fact a gay man. In a world that was always telling him to be one thing, and a world that had no respect for gays, he was definitely recognizing Emerson’s words, “What I must do is all that concerns me, not what people think.” He lived for himself and did not care what anyone said about him. Thoreau and Emerson would definitely give him a thumbs up!
