Elton John on Tuesday said Brexit was as confusing as “walking through Hampton Court maze blind-folded, being turned around 16 times and trying to find your way out.”
The star told Channel 4 News: “I dont think people in Britain were told the truth to start with. I dont think they knew exactly what they were voting for. They were promised something that was completely ridiculous and wasnt economically viable. And then its got so complicated now I just dont know whats going on.”
He added: “Theres a new cereal called Brexit. You eat it and you throw up afterwards.”
The pop megastar also discussed the International AIDS Conference taking place in Amsterdam and said U.S. President Donald Trump had “the ability to become the president that ended Aids.”
“Im sitting up there today [at the conference] … and Im thinking this is ridiculous, we have the drugs to stop this disease now and all it takes is for Putin, Trump, Merkel, Macron, Trudeau to say … lets do one great humanitarian thing. Lets just end this disease. They can do it like that [clicks fingers]. And that makes me so frustrated.”
He added: “President Trump has the ability to say I want to keep PEPFAR [the Presidents Emergency Plan For AIDS Relief] going and I want to be the president that ended Aids. And if he said that I would back him up to the hilt. And I dont care what he called it. He can call it TRUMP-FAR, he can do whatever he does.
“And if it comes to having a dialogue with him, then Ill have a dialogue with him. He comes to my shows all the time.”
