Yippee! Yet another diva hissy fit! This time it was Elton John, HURRAH! He went berserk in Taiwan, screaming at the press and photographers who had the unmitigated GALL to cover the arrival of Her Royal Highness Dame Elton John. CNN reports, gleefully:

"British rock star Elton John, in Taipei for a concert, swore at reporters who swarmed around him at the airport on 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?"

John replied: "We'd love to get out of Taiwan if it's full of people like you. Pig! Pig!"

The star, who recently performed in Shanghai and Hong Kong, is scheduled to leave after his first performance in Taiwan on Thursday."

This is from CNN, too, and the caption read simply: "Pig! Pig!" Did they mean that as a quote or a description? Who cares? Je t'aime Elton! Je t'aime!

NOTE TO SELF: Must incorporate "rude, vile pigs" into daily discourse.
