Sir Elton John hates seeing photos of himself and hates having his own photo taken. In a new interview, John said,

“I would never put myself up on the wall [at home], no thank you.”


He went on to say,

“It’s extraordinary that I collect photographs because I don’t like being photographed. I find it really painful.”
