Openly gay pop icon Sir Elton John made headlines earlier this week when he told a concert audience that he won't record any more albums. But the New York Daily News reports that now John says he didn't mean it. In a syndicated radio interview taped Tuesday, John said that he was "just having a bad day" when he announced his retirement from recording. "I love playing so much," John said. "I'll probably make another record." The singer went on to add that he might scale back his extensive touring schedule so as to concentrate more on his eight-year relationship with filmmaker David Furnish.
