Elton John has launched a furious attack on his record label, who he claims have made no attempt to promote his new album. The pop legend used the words “f–k Universal” from the stage at his show in New York on Wednesday evening for their perceived lack of support.
Sir Elton claims the enormous entertainment company has not backed The Captain And The Kid since its release, and wants the label to drop him.
He told the crowd at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum: “Nobody would know the album has been out since September. My record label isn’t doing anything to help. F–k Universal.
Please drop me. I’m 58 and I don’t care anymore.”
Universal has not yet responded to Sir Elton’s comments.
