Singer Sir Elton John has been named the top gay male musician by entertainment website

“With more than 30 albums and 250 million records sold, Sir Elton John is one of the most celebrated and successful musical artists in the world,” the website said. “With his flamboyant style, raspy voice and an unerring ability to get to the heart of every song he's written, Elton John has been recognized with Grammy Awards, a Tony Award and even an Academy Award.”

Sir Elton and his husband, filmmaker David Furnish, became fathers on Christmas Day. The Rocket Man singer recently also made headlines advocating for the legalization of gay marriage.

Other notables on the site's top 50 list include 29-year-old Grammy-nominated Adam Lambert at number 10 and Ricky Martin, who's returning to the limelight after taking a break to tend to parenting his twin sons, Valentino and Matteo. Martin released Music + Soul + Sex two weeks ago. He makes the list at number 9.

Rounding out the top 5 are Boy George, The Village People, REM's Michael Stipe and Queen frontman Freddy Mercury as the runner-up.
