Elton John, Madonna renew feud
Madonna and Elton John had a renowned feud for many years that seemed to be on the back burner recently, but that argument has apparently re-ignited in a big way.
In a brand new interview, John, 65, blasts Madonna, 53, and calls her a “fairground stripper” during scathing criticism.
The angry words came as Sir Elton John ripped Madonna for criticizing other singers, including Lady Gaga, who is the godmother to Zachary, the son John and his husband, David Furnish, adopted. In a recent interview Madonna lashed out at Lady Gaga for recording “Born This Way,” which she said was a “redo” of her song “Express Yourself.”
He continued by noting the tepid reception to Madonna’s recent world tour and said her career was over before saying that common sense should dictate that the singer continue to just make pop records rather than trying to make dance music.
For her part, Madonna said she no longer cares what John had to say, reports the Huffington Post.
“I honestly do not understand his need to trash the **** out of her over and over again. He says she has no authority, but apparently he has authority?” the insider explained to The Huffington Post.
“He needs to hate on her. To say her tour is a disaster is just silly. She is selling out arenas, singing new material and a few classic hits. He will be singing the same old songs until he dies.”
The source added: “Ultimately, she doesn’t care what he has to say about her in public or private. She has nothing to prove to anyone, especially Elton John.”
