"I was the Mariah Carey of the gay world," said Elton in a frank Atlanta 97.5FM radio interview September 30/October 1, 1998.
Elton also said of current musical interests: "I'm a big Usher fan. Usher's huge in Europe too. I like Mase. . . . He's so young. . . . I really felt like a grandfather when I met him. But I think Mase is the most talented rapper out there. Oh, and Master P. I love Master P."
