Sir Elton John, the extremely gay pop diva and outspoken proponent of marriage equality, graced the stage conservative talk-show host Rush Limbaugh’s wedding this weekend. For a cool $1 million, Limbaugh and guests (including Karl Rove, former presidential candidate Fred Thompson, and other GOP luminaries) were treated to the singer’s tunes late into the night. The big question: At $1 million, was John fleecing Limbaugh, or should we be disappointed that a member of that most noble profession – that is, a pop singer – clearly compromised his morals by taking money from such an unsavory character?
