Is the Elton vs. Madonna feud happening all over again?
He had introduced her by sarcastically saying she was still 'like a virgin' while pretending to muffle a series of snort. But while Ricky Gervais enjoyed poking fun at Madonna, it was she who got the last laugh. As she stepped onto the stage she addressed the Golden Globes presenter and asked him: "If I'm just like a virgin Ricky why don't you come over here and do something about it," before adding: "I haven't kissed a girl in quite a few years, at least not on TV".
Ricky feigned being frightened and was seen sprinting across the stage behind her, which raised plenty of laughs among the crowd. She shrugged off the British comedian's remarks to announce the winner of the best foreign language film.
But no wonder Madonna was feeling invincible, she had just proved Elton John wrong by scooping the gong for Best Original Song. Earlier in the red carpet Elton John had predicted that the 53-year-old had 'no f***ing chance of wining' an award. It is her first trip down the Golden Globes red carpet in 14 years, and as a double nominee Madonna pulled out all the stops. Madonna's win was especially sweet because she was actually up against the Elton in the Best Original Song category.
During his red carpet interview Elton was discussing her fellow nominees chances, but when he came to his arch-rival he remarked: 'Madonna doesn't have a f***ing chance of winning tonight.' When the reporter asked if 'those were fighting words?' he replied: 'No, those are accurate words.'
When the same reporter informed Madonna minutes later that Elton had just been by, she reportedly asked: 'Was he wearing a dress?' And when told of his comment, she snapped back: 'May the best man win.' Elton, who was nominated for Gnomeo & Juliet, had to eat his words as it was announced shortly into the ceremony that Madonna was the winner. Others in the category were songs from Machine Gun Preacher, The Help and Albert Nobbs.
Viewers appeared to be most interested in Madonna's bizarre accent during the televised red carpet. With commenters on social network sites remarking that her American accent was prominent in some interviews and her 'British' one in others.
David lashed out at Madonna following her victory speech at the Golden Globes last night ... saying it was 'embarrassing in its narcissism.' Moments after Madonna won the statue for Best Original Song, David went to his Facebook page and went off ... writing, "Madonna. Best song???? F**k off!!!" Elton seemed pissed off in the crowd when Madonna's name was read.
But David continued on Facebook ... writing, "Madonna winning Best Original Song truly shows how these awards have nothing to do with merit. Her acceptance speech was embarrassing in it's narcissism. And her critisism of Gaga shows how desperate she really is."
