|Elton slams 'fairground stripper' Madonna and warns her career is over
Sunday, August 5 2012
Elton John’s very fragile truce with Madonna well and truly went out the window in no uncertain terms after he branded her a ‘c***’ and ‘f***ing fairground stripper’.
He also warned his aging scantily clad foe that her career is dead in the water. His extraordinary outburst came during an explosive appearance on Australian TV when he leapt to defend his son Zachary’s godmother, Lady Gaga, against endless taunts from the Material ma.
Elton raged: "Why is she such a nightmare? Sorry, her career is over. Her tour has been a disaster and it couldn’t happen to a bigger c***." Warning the 53-year-old pop queen to get back in her box with her pompoms and fishnets, he continued: "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 horrible to Gaga."
Elton’s onslaught follows endless jibes made by Madge towards Lady G during her MDNA tour about the similarities between her 1989 hit "Express Yourself" and the 26-year-old’s "Born This Way". Only in July 2012 Madge was like a dog with a bone over her claims and boasted again, "I’m glad that I could help her write it," when asked about Gaga’s tune.
As for her ding dong battles with Elton, their rivalry has hit rock bottom. Five years ago they temporarily patched things up at the GQ Awards after three years of bitter feuding which began when Elton branded Madge a mime act. The pair hugged at the bash, with Elton proclaiming: "This is a moment you thought you would never see." But it’s been all downhill since, with the latest showdown coming at the Golden Globes this year.
Elton’s hubby David Furnish erupted when she beat Elton and Gaga to the Best Original Song prize when her tune from her flick W.E pipped their duet Hello Hello, from his flick Gnomeo & Juliet. The 49-year-old producer tweeted: "Madonna. Best song???? F*** off!!!" The Canadian continued: "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." Elton was left eating humble pie on the night when he proclaimed Madge had no ‘f***ing chance’ of winning.
