Elton John is one of the most notable and celebrated celebrities of all time — I mean, come on... he's Elton friggin John!

The singer and musician has been one of the most popular artists in the world for the better part of 5 decades — you will respect him and his music and celebrate his milestone 75th birthday with me, okay?!

Elton John is one of the most beloved musicians of this generation and for good reason.

His music has transcended generations — grandkids and their grandparents love Elton's music, especially that remix he did recently with Dua Lipa that I've had stuck in my head for 3 weeks now!

Now, the icon is celebrating his 75 birthday with a heartfelt statement to fans.

"I'm not usually one to look back or get nostalgic, but 75 is such a milestone birthday," he said, as per The Standard.

"I'll definitely find time today to take stock and thank my lucky stars for my wonderful family, friends and career," he continued.

"I feel unbelievably lucky that at 75 I still love what I do so much - I'm still so energised about music and excited I get to play, listen and talk about this every single day."

"Being back on the road is a blast and the thrill of playing live is as amazing as it was 50 years ago.

He concluded: "I have so much to pass on to the new generation of fans and artists alike, and I'm determined to keep giving back to the industry that has given me so much."

Happy birthday, Elton!
