Elton recently took an hourlong boat ride from Venice to Murano to shop at the island's famed glass-blowing studios. Just minutes into the trip back, Elton needed to relieve himself so badly, someone suggested they unpack one of his newly purchased Murano vases, reported NYPost.com on December 14, 2002, citing W Magazine.
According to W magazine, Elton turned his back and, as discreetly as possible, started to fill the vase - just as a water bus cruised up alongside. "It's Elton John!" screamed a boatload of Asian tourists. Elton blushed.
