Sir Elton "Delighted" with new iPod's
FLAMBOYANT pop superstar Sir Elton John has launched his own range of crystal-encrusted iPods - to raise cash for AIDS orphans in Africa.
Elton personally oversaw the design of the limited-edition £400 music players - and had his signature lasered on the back of each one.
The famously extravagant 61-year-old ordered just 1000 of the collectors items to be manufactured - 100 in each of the 10 colours available.
A share of the profits from the sale of the iPods will be handed over to the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
Elton has been involved in the fight against AIDS since the 1980s and has raised more than £100million for his charity.
A spokesman for the star said he was "delighted" with the iPods.
He said: "Elton does not usually put his name to a product but this is exactly the kind of thing he loves. It's extravagant and glamorous just like him.
"And, as everyone knows, his AIDS charity is very close to his heart."
