Elton John Throws Massive Shade on Beyoncé and the New 'Lion King'

By

Can you feel the love tonight? Well, Elton John can't. Not for the music in the new Lion King movie, anyway. In a recent interview with British GQ, the bespectacled pop star let loose when it came to the remake of the 1994 Disney classic, in which of course had such a massive role as composer. 

Elton John spoke to GQ about everything under the sun, from Brexit to Rocketman to what he used to write in his diary ("I saw Ringo for lunch, bought a Rolls-Royce, blah, blah, blah."). But what really stood out for many were his searing thoughts about the music in 2019's adaptation of The Lion King.
