One more reason why being a Glee star is the best job on the planet: You get to chat on the phone with Elton John. No big deal.
On August 30, Naya Rivera (Santana) tweeted about her phone convo with the British music legend, and she was understandably a tad excited about it. “Just got off the phone with Elton John! ELTON JOHN!! Freaking out a little bit” We don’t blame you, Naya! Then again, we wouldn’t be surprised if Elton John was freaking out a little bit to be talking to Naya Rivera.
So what was the nature of the phone call? We’re not sure, but we can’t help but wonder if it means Glee will soon be covering another Elton John song. Glee creator Ryan Murphy has made no secret of his desire to cover Sir Elton this season, even joking recently on Twitter that he hoped for a mash-up of Elton and Madonna to help the two squash their recent feud. Ryan is like the Jimmy Carter of TV producers.
So now perhaps the biggest question that remains is: Which Elton song would you most want Santana to do? We think it would be hilarious — and appropriate — to have her singing “The Bitch Is Back” about herself. Then again, it would also be awesome for her to sing “Tiny Dancer” to Brittany, who is of course known for her fancy footwork. Decisions, decisions.
