    Fresh off the success of Billy Elliot, Elton John is working on a new musical. This one is based on George Orwell's book, Animal Farm, which is required high school reading! The singer told England's Daily Mail that he's "deep into it, writing songs for pigs and other four-legged friends." I wonder how he will approach the sociological constructs of the enduring book. Guess we'll have to wait and see!

    Elton revealed it has taken two years but he and co-writer Lee Hall are almost done.

    Should Elton get his other musical companion, Lady Gaga, to perform or co-write a song?
