Chris Martin Shares Risque Joke About Elton John at iHeartRadio Music Awards 2021 - Watch!

Chris Martin is making a rare public appearance to honor his longtime friend Elton John!

The 44-year-old Coldplay frontman attended the 2021 iHeartRadio Music Awards on Thursday night (May 27) at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles to help present the 74-year-old entertainer with the Icon Award.

As he took to the mic, Chris joked that he got into a fist fight with the guy that runs the teleprompter, so everything he says might not be 100% accurate.

“I hope to goodness that he hasn’t messed with what I am about to say because I don’t really now anything about Elton John and I’m just going to read what iHeart wrote for me,” Chris started.

“Elton John was born in the USA. He and his collaborator Bernie Sanders worked and lived together in an apartment that his partner David furnished,” Chris jokingly said. “He tried to be an actor for a while, but that didn’t go so well. However it led to an incredible song ‘I’m Still A Stand In.’”

Later in his speech, Chris made a very risque joke about Elton and husband David Furnish!

“My favorite Elton songs are the romances, particularly the one he wrote for his husband’s parents – ‘Don’t Let Your Son Go Down On Me,’” Chris said as Elton and David erupted in laughter.
