At a recent concert in Nice, France Madge performed a song in the British musician's honor. “I know he’s a big fan of it. And I know he’s a big fan of mine. And you know? I forgive him. Gotta start somewhere.”
While it seems like a nice gesture, the song Madge dedicated to Elton was “Masterpiece."
So what's wrong with that? Well that was the very song that beat out Elton's Hello Hello from his animated film Gnomeo & Juliet, at the Golden Globes earlier this year, which didn't sit well with Elton and his partner David Furnish. The couple were angry "The Material Girl" won and David publicly criticized her acceptance speech saying it was "embarrassing in its narcissism." He also said, "Madonna winning best original song truly shows how these awards have nothing to do with merit."
Elton has no problems bashing Madonna to the press as well and has been doing so for years. He has called her a "fairground stripper" and said in an Australian interview that, "Her career's over, I can tell you that. Her tour's been a disaster."
Meanwhile, Madonna takes it all in stride and said after her Golden Globe win, "He's been known to get mad at me, so I don't know. He's brilliant, and I adore him, so he'll win another award. I don't feel bad."
