Did we miss anyone?


  1. Jesus hates idiotic people like him. Jesus strongly hates homosexuality. In the Bible, it is clearly written that homosexuality is a sin. People like him will suffer during their last days. How dare he is! Shame on him, being a gay and calling Jesus a gay. It’s better for him to change right now. People who mock Jesus will surely suffer. I request everybody to read the bible properly and do what bible says. All sleeping Christians please wake up and fight for justice. Let God to take during last days.

    • Take it from someone who has read the bible, I do not think homosexuality is a sin and I strongly believe Jesus does not think that either! I’m a christian, I live my life after my beliefs and I’m bisexual. What does that make me?? A sinner?? The God I believe in does not hate because of others love. Because of people like you that misunderstand things like this, there’s so much hatred in the world. Fight for equality, love and christianity instead of hate ans fear!

    • babes it’s 2022, the world is changing and you’re gonna get left behind. our world is so diverse and it’s beautiful and i love how it’s becoming more welcoming and supportive, unlike you. i believe that jesus, god, whatever loves everybody no matter what because we are his children and he should love us no matter what. why would someone who teaches everybody to love, hate people who like the same gender or multiple genders? thats really stupid and totally hypocritical. I dont remember seeing anywhere in the bible that homosexuality was a sin, but if it does the bible also said this: a marriage shall be considered valid only if the wife is a v*rgin. If the wife is not a v*rgin, she shall be executed. (Deuteronomy 22:13-21) If my memory of high school is correct, you might wanna reconsider your position on the relevance of the bible to our marriage laws. “it’s better for him to change right now”????? wtf does that mean?? like he should stop being gay?? thats like telling a black person to be white. its not a choice! you’re homophobia is kinda gay, like why are you so obsessed with hating gay people, thats a little sus if you ask me 😏 im a lesbian genderfluid and im proud of being me 🏳️‍🌈👹👹👹👹👹👹😼😼😼😼😼😼

  2. Elton John, Reg, is a fairly short man, about 5′ 8″ ( a bit taller when younger). He always had light brown hair, actually closer to ash blond than red, but he liked being red-haired. His eye color, like Harrison Ford, is a dull hazel (more gray-brown than green brown). One book of his, or on him, shows him realistically with bronze brown hair and a straight semi-serious face, with cool hazel eyes.

  3. As of 2019-2022, his weight has been different

    • 2019: 80 kg
    • 2020: 82 kg
    • 2021: 85 kg
    • 2022: 86 kg

    Currently his weight has to be 83 kg.

    A weight loss routine.

    His heaviest weight had to be 90 kg.

    As I said: 83 kg (183 pounds) is how much he currently weighs.
    His height is now around 171 cm. Seeing how he probably shrunk just a little bit.
    • 169 cm at the least
    • 172 cm at the most

    So his height is 171 cm.
