Cliff Richard regrets not meeting fat ElvisMay 18th, 2008 - 1:03 pm ICT by admin
London, May 18 (IANS) British singer Sir Cliff Richard regrets not taking up the opportunity to meet legendary singer Elvis Presley because he was too fat. Though Richard was a huge fan of the rock ‘n roll star, he didn’t want to take a picture with an obese Elvis because he thought he would get another chance in future when he became thinner, reports contactmusic.com.
Richard said: “The big regret is when I had the chance to meet him in America, I chose not to because he was going through a really big, fat…he was grotesquely overweight.
“They kept saying they wanted a photograph of me and Elvis and I thought, ‘Hang on, I don’t want to have that Elvis with me on my wall - I’d rather have the magnificent Elvis that everybody knows and loves’. I said, ‘If we wait long enough, he does movies and he goes on these fantastic diets, then we can have a picture of me with my idol looking like my idol’. Now I really regret it. I’d rather have met him overweight than never.”
