Elton gets pranked: Putin Elton John, Did pop star Elton John get punked? The singer apparently thought he was chatting about gay rights with Russian President Vladimir Putin this week, posting an Instagram photo thanking Putin for the call.

But a Russian TV personality now says it wasn’t the Kremlin on the line.

In an interview with Russian tabloid newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda, a Russian celebrity prankster known as “Vovan” – whose real name is Vladimir Krasnov – described how he and his comedy sidekick made a prank call to the British singer, playing the roles of Putin and a press secretary.

“We thought Putin wouldn’t want to meet him or call him at least in the nearest future, but it turned out Elton John’s been waiting for such a call,” Krasnov told the newspaper. “That’s why he immediately believed we were exactly those whom we introduced ourselves as.”
