By all rights, I shouldn’t be here today
Elton John supports people with AIDS
Elton John attended the International AIDS conference on Monday, July 23. He was honest enough to say that he should be dead because of his self-destructive lifestyle decades ago.”By all rights, I shouldn’t be here today”, he said.
The singer confessed he felt compassion coming from people he didn’t even know at the time he was battling drug addiction. John said he’s been sober for 22 years, he has a longtime partner and a beautiful son.
He also said that people with AIDS should be shown a lot of support. ”We have to replace the shame with love. We have to replace the stigma with compassion”, he added.
