ELTON JOHN TELLS IT STRAIGHT

WHEN CELEBS ATTACK:

Last week's Enquirer story about stars attacking stars over their September 11 fund-raiser inspires me to quote Elton John -- who says he's actually glad those cheeky British newspapers don't care WHOSE butt they kick! Said Sir Elton: "I'd rather have that than end up like Barbra Streisand or Oprah Winfrey or one of those American freaks that no one tells them they're a pain in the ass!" (Yeee-OW!)
