Sir Elton John has slammed Madonna, saying she resembles a ‘f***ing fairground stripper’.
Speaking on Australian news and current affairs programme ‘Sunday Night’, he said:
‘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 ****.
‘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 horrible to Gaga.’
Madonna – who has sported a number of flash-flashing outfits throughout her tour – has criticised Gaga on a number of occasions and recently hit out at her after the 26-year-old pop star’s single ‘Born This Way’ had 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.
