Elton John bashes Madonna (again)
Elton John did what clearly needed to be done. E! reports that during an interview with Sunday Night, an Australian TV show, John erupted when Madonna was mentioned: "She's such a nightmare. Her career's over." The Rocket Man then said: "She looks like a f----ing fairground stripper." Well, if we're being honest with ourselves, he has a point.
The fracas started in 2004 when John accused Madge of lip-syncing while he was accepting an award at the Q Awards. Earlier in the year, he gave Madonna advice during Good Morning America when it was known she would perform during the Super Bowl halftime show. "Make sure you lip-sync good," he said. Most recently, Madonna's apparent disrespect of Lady Gaga, who is the godmother of his 19-month-old son with husband David Furnish, hasn't been helping John's opinion of her. For example: Madonna did a mash-up of "Born This Way" and "Express Yourself" which was considered an insult.
"[Madonna's] been so horrible to Gaga," Sir Elton said. In Madge's defense, this is coming from a guy who crowned Lady Gaga, of all people, to be his kid's godmother. That's basically hoping your kid dyes his eyebrows pink and wears bondage clothes.
