Taiwan's notoriously aggressive paparazzi made Elton John hoppin' mad when his private plane arrived at Taipei's Chiang Kai-shek International Airport on Thursday. An enraged John — who is currently touring the Far East — reportedly called the shutterbugs "rude, vile pigs!" and other colorful epithets. Later on, he informed his concertgoers how rude the airport photographers were and insisted he meant every word he said to them. Except "$%#@!" He now admits that was totally uncalled for.
