i suspect if you're willing to blow 11.5 million on an apartment you probably wouldn't flinch at another half million to strip the fucker out and start over.

it's also $2.5m less than the asking price.

One broker familiar with the transaction said the final price was about $11.5 million. Mr. Limbaugh paid just under $5 million for the apartment as well as a maid's room and a storage locker, in 1994.
But much more than he paid for it and that's saying something in today's economy.

Imagine what he could have got for it if he'd sold at the height of the real estate bubble.

Rush wedding photos

Rush Limbaugh's Photos - Rush & Kathryn's Wedding | Facebook

Her dress, veil, and hair look beautiful

Some of the comments are funny, like this one

"Rush, I tell my husband, "A day without Rush is like a day without the sun."

Elton talks about the Rush wedding here. It's an interesting interview

Elton John interview - Telegraph

"Earlier this year he caused outcry among the gay community when he performed, for a reported fee of $1 million, at the wedding of the splenetic right-wing American commentator Rush Limbaugh, a man who has been accused of being a homophobe, and who has described Aids as a 'hyped’ disease and claimed 'there was never any evidence’ that it could be transmitted heterosexually.

'When he asked me to play at his wedding, my agent said, “Well, of course you won’t be doing it,” ’ Elton says. 'But I said, “Well, let me think about that first.”’

Limbaugh, he says, is against gay marriage – 'But then so is President Obama. But Limbaugh’s not anti-civil partnerships, so maybe I can have a dialogue about that. I’ve put my foot in the water and so has he. I got on with him very well, got on very well with his wife. I don’t have the same politics, but that doesn’t really matter. And I think this year I can start to put things in motion by trying to get him on my side.’

The tide can change, he says. He faced similar criticism in 2001 when he joined Eminem on stage at the Grammy awards, ignoring the controversy about the rap singer’s allegedly homophobic lyrics. Eminem has now come out in support of gay marriage. 'For our civil partnership present he gave David and me two diamond-encrusted cock-rings.’ "



I really like this...



"Elton says that one of the most important turning points in his recovery was meeting Ryan White, a haemophiliac who in the late-1980s became a cause célèbre in America after becoming infected at the age of 13 with HIV from a contaminated blood transfusion. Ryan’s family were obliged to wage a lengthy legal battle in the face of a campaign by teachers and parents to ban him from school. His ordeal made Ryan, who died in 1990 at the age of 18, a figurehead for Aids education and research. Elton became a close friend and supporter of Ryan and his family. He spent the last week of Ryan’s life at the family home, 'making the coffee and fielding telephone calls’, and he was a pall-bearer at his funeral.

'And what I learnt from them in that one week was that my life was so out of kilter,’ he says. 'These people gave me an incredible example of how to lead one’s life as a Christian – forgiving, wonderful, not bitter; handling tragedy with such dignity, humility and generosity of spirit. And here I was complaining about the wallpaper in a hotel suite. What? What an absolute c*** you are. It made me think, you’ve got to make a change here, son.’ "

Money.

He did a one-off gig for money because it was for a fucking million dollars.

Very few people have morals that would prevent them from earning $500,000 / hr for maybe two hours of work.

I think we might be trying to inject politics into the Elton gig when at the end of the day, it's a fucking millllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllion dollars.

He has plenty of money, don't think he craves it that badly. He has that new album out so he'll probably make big bucks with that. I would buy it but that Leon Russell's voice sounds like Willie Nelson off key with a bad head cold to me. Too cryptkeeperesque.

I give him the benefit of the doubt-and if he really did do it for money then he still missed learning some things from Ryan White. What if he used the money for the Elton John AIDS Foundation?
