The English singer is not happy about the United Kingdom leaving the European Union and everything that happened with Brexit.
It's been revealed that during one of his shows in Verona, Italy, the pop-rock star took a few minutes to say how ashamed he was of his country. The star has openly showed his opposition to Brexit.
"I am not a stupid, colonial, imperialist English idiot.” says the artist, who defends publicly also the LGBTQ rights.
His sayings offended many of his fans, who accuse him of betraying England, the country where his musical career was born. So well did it go, that in 2019 director Dexter Fletcher made a film about his life titled "Rocketman", which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and won numerous awards.
He believes people were lied to and promised something completely unattainable. Far from receiving disapproval, the musician's career is peaking. He will carry on with his very last world tour 'Farewell Yellow Brick Road'.
Brexit refers to the vote that was held concerning the United Kingdom leaving the European Union.
