Elton John: Madonna’s career is over

Elton John has elevated his long-standing feud with Madonna, telling an Australian interviewer that the pop superstar’s career is “over.”

“Her career is over, I can tell you that,” Elton told Molly Meldrum at Saturday Night. “Her tour has been a disaster. It couldn’t happen to a bigger c***.”

He also slammed her choice of material for the “MDNA” album, saying “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 prove that she was like…”
he paused, adding, “and she looks like a f*****g fairground stripper."

The Elton-Madonna feud goes back several years, and went high profile during the Golden Globe Awards in January, when Elton’s partner, David Furnish, called the singer “embarrassing” after one of her songs beat out Elton’s to win the Golden Globe for Best Original Song.

Elton then took a shot at Madonna, telling her to “lip-sync well” during her February appearance at the Super Bowl.
