Sir Elton John is glad his irrational mood-swings were exposed in notorious documentary Tantrums and Tiaras - because he vowed to change his ways after watching himself onscreen.

The full extent of the Rocket Man's outlandish demands were revealed in the 1997 fly-on-the-wall film, when he was seen exploding with rage when a fan waved at him as he played tennis and screaming at assistants during a photoshoot. The singer came in for harsh criticism for his behavior after the program aired in his native U.K. - but he's adamant he was pleased with the documentary because it forced him to become a nicer person.

He tells Britain's Daily Telegraph, "I hate watching things about myself. But that I could watch all the time because it's so honest... I did laugh. But having looked at it and learnt from it, I thought, I can't continue to behave like that. It's just not worth the aggravation to everyone else, or to me." (ZN/WNBTES/LR)
