Elton Bitch Slapped by Free Speech

12/14/2008 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Elton JohnLooks like the Rocket Man himself just got shot back down to earth.

In a landmark decision, The Guardian paper just won their right to have a sense of humor -- after a judge ruled against Elton John's defamation case against the paper.

Elton sued The Guardian over a fake excerpt they printed from the ivory tickler's diary, alleging that Elton cared more about schmoozing the social elite than raising money for AIDS at his annual "White Tie and Tiara Ball."

The courts decided "irony" and "teasing" don't really count as defamation.

Perhaps it's time for Elton to click his heels together three times and ask the wizard to help him lighten up.

While I can appreciate and respect the man for his musical talents. I don't have much respect for him as a person. Ever since his coming out, he's been a flame to contend with! If there is a "gay" issue, he is there pretty much like Al Sharpton, and Jessie Jackson for any black issues that arise! Of course too, if there is a "rise' issue, I'm certain Elton is there for that as well..

Why has this guy become such a bitch!?
