Madonna, Elton John Exchange Insults at the Globes


The feud between pop icons Madonna and Elton John reached boiling point during the Golden Globe Awards where both stars were nominated for best original song -- Madonna for "Masterpiece," from her film "W.E.," and Elton John's "Hello Hello" from "Gnomeo and Juliet."

According to, Elton John told NBC's Carson Daly prior to the show that the Material Girl "doesn't have a f***ing chance of winning tonight." After laughing, Daly prodded the star and asked if those were "fighting words," to which Elton replied that those were "accurate words."

Daly then told Madonna about Elton John's tirade, prompting the star to reply, "Was he wearing a dress?' à adding, "may the best man win."

After the Material Girl eventually emerged victorious, Elton John's husband David Furnish came to his defense, criticizing the win and poking fun  at Madonna's acceptance speech, calling it "embarrassing" and narcissistic.

"Madonna. Best song???? F**k off!!!" Furnish said on Facebook (as reported by TMZ). "Madonna winning Best Original Song truly shows how these awards have nothing to do with merit. Her acceptance speech was embarrassing in its narcissism."

Furnish further called Madonna's criticism of Lady Gaga's music as "desperate."

During her speech, Madonna shared the back story behind the creation of the song "Masterpiece." She said:

"I would also like to thank my manager, Guy Oseary, who I spend most of my time beating up on. But seriously, he harangued me for the entire time I was filming and editing my movie, to write a song for the film, and I said, 'Please Guy, I'm trying to focus on being a director and I want people to pay attention to the film, and I don't have time.'

So then I finished the film and I started making the record, and somehow, magically, and miraculously, the song emerged, 'Masterpiece.' So, thank you Guy Oseary for being so irritating."

An expressionless Elton John was caught on-cam as the Material Girl accepted her award.

According to reports, the "feud" may have started seven years ago when both singers were pitted for the same award, GQ's best live act, with Madonna emerging as the winner. Elton John had this to say about it: "Madonna, best f**king live act? F*** off!'" (Sound familiar?)

The Material Girl, though, seemed a little more diplomatic after the win, telling Us Weekly, "I hope he speaks to me for the next couple of years," she quipped. "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!"
