These are some photos of Elton John, David Furnish and their son Zachary on vacation with Neil Patrick Harris, David Burtka and their kids last week. I never got around to covering these photos for whatever reason…? I guess I just forgot. The two families went on vacation last year too, and the photos are really similar (except for the size of the babies). But that’s not the point of this post – the point is that Elton John is still a raging bitch. And I love him. Remember this year’s Golden Globes? Madonna won “Best Song” and she was up against Elton John and Mary J. Blige, and both Mary and Elton were PISSED. Mary didn’t say anything, but Elton and David Furnish basically told everyone who would listen that Madonna is a selfish, narcissistic, talentless POS. Madonna was surprisingly gracious about the criticism, telling reporters that she loved Elton and David, etc. Still, Elton seethed. And now Elton is bitching about Madonna in a new interview:
Sir Elton John has reignited his feud with Madonna by labelling her a ‘f***ing fairground stripper’ in an extraordinary new interview.
The 65-year-old singer didn’t hold back with his criticism of Madonna, with his outburst triggered as he claimed the singer had been ‘horrible’ to Lady Gaga, who is godmother to his and husband David Furnish’s 19-month-old son Zachary.
Elton added that Madonna, 53, had no right to criticise other artists because her ‘career is over’ and her recent MDNA world-tour was less than well received.
Speaking on Australian news and current affairs programme Sunday Night, Elton said: ‘She’s such a nightmare. Sorry, her career is over. Her tour has been a disaster and it couldn’t happen to a bigger ****. If Madonna had any common sense she would have made a record like Ray of Light and stayed away from the dance stuff and just been a great pop singer and make great pop records, which she does brilliantly. But no, she had to go and prove … she looks like a f***ing fairground stripper. She’s been so horrible to Gaga.’
Elton’s comments come after Madonna hit out at Gaga for her track Born This Way having too many similarities to her own 1989 hit Express Yourself.
She said: ‘I thought, “What a wonderful way to redo my song.” I mean, I recognised the chord changes. I thought it was … interesting.’
Earlier this year, Elton reignited his long-running feud with Madonna by implying she wouldn’t sing live at the Super Bowl half-time show, saying she should “lip-synch good” in her performance.
The 65-year-old musician’s comments came after David had branded Madonna ‘embarrassing’ and ‘desperate’ after her song Masterpiece – from her directorial debut movie W.E. – beat Elton’s efforts on animated film Gnomeo and Juliet to win a Golden Globe award.
He wrote on Facebook: ‘Madonna. Best song???? F**k off!!! Madonna winning Best Original Song truly shows how these awards have nothing to do with merit.
‘Her acceptance speech was embarrassing in its narcissism. And her criticism of Gaga shows how desperate she really is. (sic)’
Is all of this about Lady Gaga? I doubt it. I mean, I think the Gaga thing is an interesting sidenote, of course, and I don’t doubt that Elton and David want to defend their friend. But let’s be real: Elton and David just have a hate-on for Madonna. You don’t get this worked up about Madonna JUST because she points out that your friend Lady Gaga is a copycat. Something else is going on – maybe it’s just Elton’s completely normal, temperamental, bitchy behavior. Or maybe it’s something else.
Also… “fairground stripper”?? Do fairs have strippers now? I haven’t been to a fair in ages.
