Elton John recently sat down with MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell. During the interview, the Rock icon expressed his praise for rapper Jay-Z, who publicly stated that he's in support of gay marriage. Elton says he was "incredibly moved" by the support Jay-Z showed and even called him "probably the most respected African-American artist".

Elton John says he'll make sure to thank Hov the next time the two bump into each other. "When I next see him I'm going give him the biggest hug".
