Elton John Is Writing A ‘Devil Wears Prada’ Musical & All Is Well In The World

Yes, that’s sarcasm. All is certainly not well. Sure, we’re living under what’s quickly becoming a fascist regime, with Trump aiming to screw over women, people of color, poor people, brown people, and basically everyone else who isn’t an old rich white dude who helps line the pockets of his businesses. The world is going to hell, but there is one small shining beacon of hope in the air: Elton John is writing a Devil Wears Prada musical, and I can tell already it’s going to be glorious.

Now, I’m not the world’s biggest Elton John fan. In fact, I wouldn’t necessarily consider myself a “fan” of him at all (though I do like some of the classics). Nevertheless, he’s a talented musician and The Devil Wears Prada is a legendary movie in its own right, so what can go wrong here?

“Re-imagining The Devil Wears Prada for the musical theatre is super exciting,” John said in a press release. “I’m a huge fan of both the books and the feature film, and a huge aficionado of the fashion world. I can’t wait to sink my musical teeth into this hunk of popular culture.”

This is basically the best thing I’ve heard all week. Not really hard, considering how much shitty news we’ve had, but I’ll take it and I will most certainly buy a ticket.
