Reality TV stars should be assassinated: Elton John

London: Singer Elton John says reality TV stars should be assassinated because these shows attract "nightmare people" who are hungry for fame.

"With reality television, you get all these nightmare people who want to be successful, when you really want them to be assassinated," John said.

The `Home Again` hitmaker, whose 31st studio album `The Diving Board` deals with issues surrounding entertainers finding fame young, thinks there are many talented individuals who end up spiraling out of control because they would do anything for fame, reported Contactmusic.

"It`s about someone who`s attracted to fame no matter what. They want fame whatever the consequences, and they`ll do anything to get there.
