Elton John Calls Taiwan Media 'Rude, Vile Pigs'

TAIPEI (Reuters) - British rock star Elton John, in Taipei for a concert, swore at reporters who swarmed around him at the airport Thursday and called them "rude, vile pigs." Wearing a bright blue tracksuit and dark sunglasses, the star shouted expletives as he was mobbed by photographers and TV crew.

"Rude, vile pigs!" he shouted at the reporters at the Chiang Kai Shek airport after he arrived shortly after midnight.

"Do you know what that means? Rude, vile pigs. That's what all of you are."

One of the photographers shouted back: "Why don't you get out of Taiwan?"

there's more...

What's more, Cat Stevens, aka Jusuf Islam, is indignant about being deported. The New York Post had the best headline, POSITIVE CAT SCAN
