Elton John launches bling iPods for Aids orphans

Sir Elton John has launched his own range of crystal-encrusted iPods – to raise cash for AIDS orphans in Africa.

The “Starburst iPod” has been created by Laban Roomes of Goldgenie as he is known for producing gold-plated ones. Each iPod has colour co-ordinated Swarovski crystals embedded into it by advanced laser technology

Elton personally oversaw the design of the limited-edition music players – and had his signature lasered on the back of each one.

There will be just 100 of each colour created in black, blue, green, orange, pink, purple, red, silver and yellow so don’t miss out on your favourite!.

You can purchase these online at goldgenie.com or in store at Selfridges. They are priced at £399- £449.

A share of the profits from the sale of the iPods will be handed over to the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
