Sir Elton John has reignited
his feud with Madonna by labelling her a ‘f***ing fairground stripper’
in an extraordinary new interview. The
65-year-old singer didn’t hold back with his criticism of Madonna, with
his outburst triggered as he claimed the singer had been ‘horrible’ to
Lady Gaga, who is godmother to his and husband David Furnish’s
19-month-old son Zachary.


Elton added that Madonna, 53, had no right to criticise other artists because her ‘career is over’ and her
recent MDNA world-tour was less than well received.

‘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 so horrible to Gaga.’

Elton’s comments come after Madonna hit out at Gaga for her track Born This Way having too many similarities to her own 1989 hit Express Yourself.

She said: ‘I thought, “What a wonderful way to redo my song.” I mean, I recognised the chord changes. I thought it was … interesting.’

Earlier
this year, Elton reignited his long-running feud with Madonna by
implying she wouldn’t sing live at the Super Bowl half-time show, saying
she should “lip-synch good” in her performance.

The 65-year-old musician’s comments
came after David had branded Madonna ’embarrassing’ and ‘desperate’
after her song Masterpiece – from her directorial debut movie W.E. –
beat Elton’s efforts on animated film Gnomeo and Juliet to win a Golden
Globe award.

He wrote on Facebook: ‘Madonna. Best song???? F**k off!!! 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. (sic)’
