Elton John Eyeing Chris Brown Collaboration?

Rumors are swirling that Elton John may be connecting with an another new collaborator-R&B crooner Chris Brown. Though many of music's biggest stars have blasted Brown for his various controversies, the U.K.'s Daily Express writes that the Rocket Man may be serving as a mentor to the troubled pop star.

Rumors of a possible collaboration sparked earlier this month when Brown appeared at Elton's AIDS Foundation bash:

"I met Elton about a year ago and he has been a good friend to me," Chris told the Express at the event. "It's great to be here tonight to support him."

Elton later revealed that while nothing is planned, he would love to connect with Brown for a song:

"Music is music. It transcends everything so I would love it if we could work together."
