Flamboyant pop legend SIR Elton John has been busy buying up a selection of 'pornographic' Russian paintings.

The extravagant ROCKET MAN star bought the works of art, one of which depicts a female singer holding two penises, whilst in Moscow, where he played a gig earlier this week (ends27JUN03).

Artist VLADISLAV MALISHEV says, "It's fantastic news. I did not know that Sir Elton was a fan."
