Elton John spoke to BBC 5 radio about helping Eminem off Drugs in a interview that aired today.

“I’ve been helping Eminem over the last 18 months and he’s doing brilliantly,”.

Elton John himself battled drugs and booze throughout his career but says he has been sober since the ’80s.

The  singer has counseled other celebrity addicts, including the late Michael Jackson, but says he doesn’t force his advice on anyone. George Michael recently criticised Elton for trying to help him for which he replied;

“I’m there if people want my help,If people ask for help you tell them where to go but there’s no point advising people if they don’t want to do it.”
