Short Takes - Elton John, Bette Midler

Elton John has revealed that he began using cocaine back in the 70's because it gave him the confidence to be a rock star.

"It gave me the confidence to join the game. But I wasn't the kind of person who would do one or two lines. I did a gram and then called out for more."

John made the comments on the U.K. television special Elton John: Me, Myself and I.

Bette Midler has signed on to be one of the stars of The Women. The movie is an updating of the 1939 film and is being written and directed by Diane English (Murphy Brown).

Starring with Midler will be Eve Mendes, Meg Ryan, Annette Bening, Debra Messing, Jada Pinket Smith and Candice Bergen. Mick Jagger is one of the producers.
