Elton John Slams Madonna: 'Her Career Is Over,' She's A 'Fairground Stripper'
Some feuds never die! Elton John is taking shots at Madonna again!
The pop stars’ war of words was reignited during an interview on Australia’s Channel 7 on Sunday, when Elton unleashed the claws at the mention of the “Turn Up the Radio” singer, who is currently on tour supporting her latest album, “MDNA.”
“Why is she such a nightmare? Her career is over, I can tell you that. Her tour has been a disaster and it couldn’t happen to a bigger [expletive].” Elton said of Madonna.
And the verbal lashing didn’t stop there! The Brit went on to offer up some career advice to the singer, while praising some of Madonna’s fellow chart-topping contemporaries, including Lady Gaga (who is the Godmother of his son Zachary).
“She’s been so horrible to Gaga,” he said of Madonna. “I love Gaga, she’s the real deal… Katy Perry’s fabulous… and I love Rihanna.
“If Madonna had any common sense, she would have made a record like ‘Ray of Light,’ stayed away from the dance stuff and just been a great pop singer and made great pop records, which she does brilliantly,” he continued. “But no, she had to prove that she was like… and she looks like a [expletive] fairground stripper.”
A rep for Madonna was not immediately available for comment when contacted by Access Hollywood on Monday.
