Sir Elton John says reality TV stars should be assassinated.
The 66-year-old singer thinks these kinds of shows - which he has been a vocal critic of - attract ''nightmare people'' who are just hungry for fame.
Speaking on BBC World satellite radio, Elton said: ''With reality television, you get all these nightmare people who want to be successful, when you really want them to be assassinated.''
The 'Home Again' hitmaker - whose 31st studio album 'The Diving Board' deals with issues surrounding entertainers finding fame young - thinks there are many talented individuals who end up spiralling out of control because they would ''do anything'' for fame.
Quizzed on his new album, he said: ''It's about someone who's attracted to fame no matter what.
''They want fame whatever the consequences, and they'll do anything to get there.''
He thinks 'Mean Girls' star Lindsay Lohan - who has been to rehab on a number of occasions to combat substance abuse problems, most recently she underwent 90-days of court ordered treatment at the Betty Ford Clinic and then the Cliffside Malibu centre - was a ''victim of success''.
He added: ''Lindsay Lohan, unfortunately, who had a great career as an actress and as a recording artist, she had a hit album...
''Suddenly, everything has fallen to bits because of the drugs. Her parents were a nightmare.
''She has become a victim of success and she wants success, no matter how much (it costs).''
