Sir Elton John and David Furnish raised $5.8 million for AIDS research and programs last Sunday night in Hollywood. The annual Oscar party was for the Elton John AIDS Foundation. Nile Rodgers and Chic put on a blistering show, and Elton jammed with them.

There were plenty of celebrities in the magical tent EJAF sets up across from the Pacific Design Center. Elton and David are the best goodwill ambassadors in the world. (Yes. I can’t believe I actually have conversations with Elton John. I’m always humming “Honky Cat” in my head!)
Sir Elton did tell me something interesting over the weekend. Of new pop stars Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith clowning around together: “They remind me of me and Rod Stewart back in the day, just having fun!”
