Elton John: Miley 'A Meltdown Waiting To Happen', Gaga In 'Dangerous Place'

Elton John says he's concerned about the paths Miley Cyrus (photosMiley Cyrus photos) and Lady Gaga (photosLady Gaga photos) are on.

"I look at Miley Cyrus and I see a meltdown waiting to happen. And she's so young!," he reportedly tells The Australian. "But she's got two records in the top 20, so who is going to stop her?"

"With Gaga—who I love, she's the godmother to our children, I'd like to be able to talk to her right now, but I can't get through to her," he says exasperated.

"And there are times when you have to listen," he explains. "When your persona begins to take over your music and becomes more important, you enter a dangerous place. Once you have people around you who don't question you, you're in a dangerous place."

"When you get famous you get complacent," he continues. "You stop listening to new things. But my album's sound reflects the fact that all the things I love at the moment are stripped down. Lorde had a big U.S. hit with a song called 'Royal.' It's just her voice and a drum machine, and it's beautiful in its simplicity. It's the kind of direction Gaga should be going in."

Elton John says he even Michael Jackson's death coming because he knew the singer wouldn't be able to deliver.

"Maybe it's a British thing, but I can spot a car crash before it happens. I was in my dressing room in Las Vegas when they
announced that Michael Jackson was playing 50 dates at the O2 Arena in London. I turned to my agent and said: 'He won't do a single one of those.'"

"I could tell you he was going to die," says John. "He'd been doing drugs for so long, he'd been a mess for so long."

"And I've known Michael since he was 12 or 13... that it was never going to happen. Everyone was saying it was going to be great and I was saying, 'Hello? Are you looking at the real thing here?'"
