Elton John will step into slightly different shoes on World AIDS Day, December 1, when he guest-edits UK newspaper The Independent.

All proceeds from the paper that day will go to the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

“I was thrilled to be invited to guest edit The Independent,” said Sir Elton. “I’m really looking forward to spending a day in the editor’s chair, and I’m pleased to get the chance to put the subject of Aids at the top of the editorial agenda.”

The last time a celebrity took control of the paper for charity was in 2006, when Bono took the reigns for (RED).

“From football to music to politics, and, of course, on the subject of Aids, Elton has much to say, and I’m sure The Independent of 1 December will be diverse, entertaining and impactful,” said Independent editor Simon Kelner.
