Elton John asks label to kill him

A lot of people over the years have hoped that Elton John's label would drop him; indeed, around the time of his Duets album, some people were hoping that, prior to dropping him, they'd take him to a third or fourth floor balcony.

Now, though, Elton John wants his label to drop him, as he's less than thrilled with how they're attempting to sell his wares:

"Nobody would know the album has been out since September. My record label isn't doing anything to help. Fuck Universal. Please drop me. I'm 58 and I don't care anymore."

Oh, Elton, you know they're only interested in you for the back catalogue, don't you? It's about what you can do for them, not what they're going to do for you.
