Elton John's Feud With Madonna Has Gotten Out of Control
We're all sick of Madonna these days, right? Her deliberate nip slips, her "edgy" stage antics that consist of flashing swastikas and waving around machine guns, her obsession with tearing down Lady Gaga, her irritating fake British accent. But man oh man, no one -- and I mean no one, not even the fan who infamously gave her a LOATHSOME hydrangea that one time -- hates Madonna quite like Elton John.
Their feud is nothing new, having started in earnest during the 2004 UK Q Awards when Elton said of his onetime friend, "Madonna, best live act? F--- off. Since when has lip-syncing been live?" He's recently stepped up the insults, though, and while I wouldn't have thought it possible, I'm reluctantly on Team Madonna in this particular diva war.
Elton's been pretty bitchy about Madonna during the last several years, even getting his husband David Furnish involved after Madonna won a 2012 Golden Globe for best original song:
Madonna winning Best Original Song truly shows how these awards have nothing to do with merit. Her acceptance speech was embarrassing in its narcissism.
Before Madonna's Super Bowl performance earlier this year, Elton snarked to her via Good Morning America:
Make sure you lip-sync good!
So obviously there's no love lost between these two. But holy crap, did Elton ever take it to a whole new level during an interview for Australian TV that aired last Sunday night:
Why is she such a nightmare? Her career is over, I can tell you that. Her tour has been a disaster and it couldn't happen to a bigger c**t.
Oooooooooh, girl, I can't believe you went there. *four snaps in Z formation*
After dropping the c-bomb, Elton went on to dish out a seriously backhanded compliment:
If Madonna had any common sense, she would have made a record like Ray of Light, stayed away from the dance stuff and just been a great pop singer and made great pop records, which she does brilliantly. But no, she had to prove that she was like ..... and she looks like a f---ing fairground stripper.
A ... fairground stripper?
Anyway, I don't know when Madonna peed in Elton's Wheaties, but now that he's shared his opinion many times over, the dude needs to shut his face-hole. I mean, yeah, Madonna seems like kind of a douchebag, but at least she's not stooping to his level -- plus, she's outsold him in records, and she's reportedly worth $650 million to his $355 million. She may look like a fairground stripper, whatever that is, but something tells me she's not lying around sobbing over his harsh words.
Also, I'm not entirely certain Elton John's the right guy to nitpick appearances. Juuuuuuuuust sayin'.
What do you think of this ongoing fight between Elton John and Madonna? If you were forced (at gunpoint, say) to pick sides, who would you support?
