Elton John in Russia

I appreciate Elton John speaking loudly about his opposition to the Russian  anti-gay legislation in Russia.  I also think this is an elegant justification for Elton John to circumvent a boycott.

It also happens to be a justification that probably makes Elton John a whole lot of money.

Don’t get me wrong, it is excellent to see pop stars expressing their politics.  And I think Elton John is a super bad-ass.  (Remember that he stood up to some heavy bullying and blackmail from a newspaper in the UK).  And I think that he has credibility and status for his opinion to be widely amplified.
