Sir Elton John has launched a range of crystal adorned iPods to raise money for charity.
The 61-year-old star personally oversaw production of the 1000 iPods – to be retailed at £400 each – with proceeds to go to the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
“Elton does not usually put his name to a product but this is exactly he kind of thing he loves,” said a spokesperson for Sir Elton. “It’s extravagant and glamorous just like him. And, as everyone knows, his AIDS charity is very close to his heart.”
As well as being encrusted with crystals – and available in 10 colors – the iPods also have Sir Elton’s signature engraved by laser on the back.
Sir Elton will also be hosting his annual Oscars Viewing Party on February 22 at the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles to raise money for his Foundation.
