Sir Elton John’s truce with Madonna is well and truly over after he branded her a ‘c*nt’ and ‘f**king fairground stripper’ whose career is over.
His extraordinary outburst came during an interview on Australian Television when he leapt to defend his son Zachary’s godmother, Lady Gaga, against Madonna's treatment of Gaga, particularly Madonna’s bitchiness towards Gaga’s song “Born This Way”, which has often been compared to Madonna’s smash hit “Express Yourself”.
While Elton calls the track “the new gay anthem”, Madonna says the track “feels reductive” and is “a wonderful way to redo my song”.
Sir Elton spoke out against Madonna by saying, “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*nt. 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 fucking fairground stripper. She’s been horrible to Gaga.”
Elton goes off at about the 7:24 mark in the clip above. Check it out.
