Elton turns 70 tomorrow, and this Web site hopes he has a splendid time.
Meanwhile, the pop icon has been reflecting on life with Beats 1’s Zane Lowe.
The composer said his marriage to David Furnish has “gotten better and better and better,” while admitting, “we’ve had our ups and downs like every other couple.”
“Our love has grown stronger and stronger,” he said, adding, “And you have to work at it, you know you’re married.”
Elton also spoke about having children, saying it “makes all the difference because it’s about them, not you. And it’s the greatest thing you’ll ever know.”
“Seventy sounds so archaic, doesn’t it? When I was growing up, 70 sounded like the end of the world. But things have changed —you’re only as old as you feel inside.”
Though the performer acknowledged that sometimes, his physical strength is down, he said, “My inner self I feel great.”
