For this, Sir Elton was paid an even $1 million.

John is an activist for gay marriage; Limbaugh ridicules it and the rest of the gay civil rights movement. By participating in this way, John advances an argument that's implicit in Limbaugh's diatribes against gay rights: that gay people are welcome to sing at weddings, to plan them and cater them and attend them. They just can't legally have weddings themselves.
