Following the Golden Globes, the dispute between Elton John and Madonna escalated so… they stepped into the ring
Elton John was visibly upset during the Golden Globes, but it got even worse when Madonna’s “Masterpiece” won for Best Original Song over a ballad Elton wrote for Gnomeo and Juliet.
Elton John’s 49-yeard-old husband, David Furnish, took to his Facebook pageand said, “Madonna winning Best Original Song truly shows how these awards have nothing to do with merit. Her acceptance speech was embarrassing in it’s narcissism. And her criticism of Gaga shows how desperate she really is.”
Elton John, himself, talked negatively about about Madonna on the red carpet before the awards started and ranted about “the old hag” after the Golden Globes.
Sir Elton started the battle when he said that Madonna did not “have a f**king chance of winning”. When a reporter asked if ‘those were fighting words?’ he replied: ‘No, those are accurate words.’
Madonna retaliated, saying: “Was he wearing a dress?” adding, “May the best man win.”
After she won Madonna said, “I hope he speaks to me for the next couple of years. He’s known to get mad at me. He’s brilliant and I adore him, so he will win another award. And I don’t feel bad!”
The harsh criticism towards the iconic singer was the second time Madonna had been attacked by the couple as Elton John predicted that she would not win.
The feud escalated today in Los Angeles, and Madonna challenged John to a three-round boxing match. Elton John wanted to prove he wasn’t just “another Madonna b*tch”, so he took her up on the challenge.
John, Furnish, Madonna and their entourages went to Gold’s Gym in Venice, California and stepped into a makeshift ring outside. Madonna didn’t bother to tell Elton that she teaches boxing back in England.
Elton looked the part and Furnish was on the edge of the ring hurling insults at Madonna. He yelled at her, “I hoping Elton hits you in the face, maybe he can make some improvements. Your face looks like a ass of a dead mule.”
The bell rang and Madonna approached John. One punch and Elton was down – and out. “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road,” she said over him. “And ‘your song’ sucks.”
Madonna walked to the corner of the ring and punched out Furnish as well. Then she had the Gold’s Gym staff, play her song “Masterpiece” at full volume.
Will there be a rematch?
