Elton has declared that music from younger stars makes him feel happy.
In an interview on ITV's Daybreak, he said: “The young make me feel alive, things like Disclosure, Rudimental, Ed Sheeran, things like that, Example.
" I love all those kind of people.
"I put them on first thing in the morning because they make me feel happy.”
He also insisted on keeping his favourite One Direction star a secret, joking: “I’m not letting on about who’s my favourite.”
Also discussed were Elton's young boys. He says that Elijah is 7 months old, but he's growing fast. He already takes the same size socks as his 2-year-old brother, Zachary.
