Paramount Studios teased audiences with a first glimpse of Kingsman actor Taron Egerton portraying music legend Elton John in the upcoming theatrical biopic.

And boy, is the actor nailing it!


The 28-year-old Egerton will be starring in Rocketman, which will chronicle Elton John's early life and career. The photo's unrecognizable actor knows what it means to be fabulous.

He has made a complete transformation and is showing off his legs for days.


In the photo, the Welsh actor and singer is wearing a gold lamé jacket with shortie-shorts. The glittery pair of large sunglasses compliment the outlandish look that so captivated concert-goers a few decades ago.

And those winged boots are making people positively giddy.


People couldn't get enough of the brilliant photo.






According to Entertainment Weekly, the film is being touted as an "'uncensored' examination of John's life," and will take audiences on a musical journey through the use of many of Elton's classic hits.

This isn't the first time the two worlds collided.

Elton John starred with Egerton in Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) by playing himself.

The young actor also demonstrated his vocal prowess by singing one of Elton's signature songs – "I'm Still Standing," in the 2016 animated movie, Sing.







Other photos from Rocketman appeared online.

The ones below are from an on-set location in London with co-star Jamie Bell, who plays Sir Elton's friend and longtime collaborator, Bernie Taupin.


Before taking flight on his next ambitious venture, Egerton teased fans with a tweet revealing only a shadow of himself outlined by a silhouette of wings.

On June 20th, he tweeted:

"Here we go."


Fans are already anticipating an impressive performance from Egerton.


In addition to Bell, Egerton will be joined by co-stars Richard Madden, Gemma Jones and Bryce Dallas Howard.

Rocketman is scheduled for a May 31, 2019, launch date.

As if being a mom isn't hard enough, why does society want to heap on more stress. Women who can breastfeed need to be able to breastfeed. They need to do it whenever and wherever.

This has been a contentious, dramatic issue for generations. Some people just can't handle a boob out in public. A boob that is nourishing a child, I might add. When you're hungry, you don't want to wait, so why should a mom, make her baby wait until a more "appropriate" time?

God grow up.

Redditor u/Brace4Landing wanted to chat about what women have to do what they do, by asking:

What are your thoughts about women breastfeeding openly in restaurants?

Our society has a lot of strange ideas about masculinity. In fact, we have such a string of contradicting and misleading pieces of information on how a man "should" act that it has created a very emotionally stunted pool of men in the United States.

And it's usually traits that differ from this path of "most masculine" that, ironically, make us appealing to potential mates. When people look for a partner, they usually look for some preliminary signs of who that person is, and these are some of the traits that most stuck out upon first impression.

Generations are sometimes a little confusing. What makes up a generation? Is it their ages or year they were born? Is it what was happening politically during the formative years? Is it the economic landscape that either afforded or denied certain life expectations? Maybe it's the technology that they had access to.

According to the Pew Research Center, it's all of these things and more. All of these factors can influence a generations understanding of the world and ultimately their thoughts as the move through it.

Depending on what generation you're from, you might have seen the drastic shift from records to CDs to Spotify, from payphones and landlines to cellphones.

Marked by technology and pop culture references, the older generations might actually look to Gen Z, the iGen, with pitty for never truly understanding the struggle of walking to school up hill both ways.

What are the struggles of the past that young people today really won't understand unless they were there to experience it? We went to Ask Reddit to find out.
