Hopefully Sir Elton John isn't a betting man - or maybe he is, and that's why he appeared to have such a sourpuss on at the Golden Globes last night.
The Brit legend told Carson Daly on the red carpet before the show that while he did have stiff competition in the best original song in a motion picture category, fellow nominee Madonna didn't stand a "f*****g chance" of winning the award.
Madonna's song "Masterpiece" from "W.E." was nominated alongside Elton's work from "Gnomeo & Juliet," "Hello, Hello," and since he chuckled as he said that, we're going to guess it was a joke.
When Daly replied that those were "fighting words," Elton continued, "No, they're accurate words."
And yet, when the winners were called, the Material Girl landed the win.
Backstage, Madge reportedly seemed unfazed, adding that she's hopeful she and Elton will smooth over any rough spots in their relationship.
According to Us Weekly, the 53-year-old told press, "I hope he speaks to me for the next couple of years...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."
THIS IS OLD NEWS.....THANKS.
they are talking to each other again

Elton is a better musician than Madonna any day. Why don't we send the cheerleader back to Michigan where she belongs, instead of her buying up Scotland?
Ive had it with Madonna bashing. Im not a fan either, but look at this woman's history and her currrent status. You cant deny that. What i dont get is why old stodgy white men still dont take her music seriously, especially a catastrophe such as Elton John. Madonna may be one of the greatest singers of all time alongside Elvis and MJ. Chew on that one!
I'm not surprised that Elton hates her. It's because she uses a phony Brittish accent. In fact, most of America hates her for the very same reason. When she speaks like that I want to punch her dead in the face and knock her gapped teeth out of her pretentious skull. She's a slimy ho from Chicago who used to pose nekked, now she thinks she's royalty? Hey Madonna, muscles on an old lady look ridiculous.
I'm an American and I love Madonna. She's not royalty but she's music royalty...the Queen of Pop music for that matter. let me guess you're one of those that dismisses her talent b/c she's not Led Zepplin or a Kenny Chesney. Madonna has written dozens of smash songs. She's not John Lennon but you can hardly dismiss the impact she's had on music and is miles ahead of her female peers. And btw she's from the suburbs of Detroit not Chicago and she still looks 10x better than most people 20 years younger than her.
Still no excuse for a phony Brittish accent. Although her teeth are as bad as a Britt's so maybe I can give her a pass on the accent. And, Chicago, Detroit, what's the difference? They're BOTH cesspools. Splitting hairs are we? You must be a liberal.
Are there two mor narcissistic people on the planet? It's probably a stunt. Remember, there is no such thing as bad publicity.
Elton John is a spoiled, narcissistic, butt-surfing queen who deluded himself that he is "better" than Madonna. The look on his bloated face when he realized he isn't was absolutely priceless!
I don't really understand the "old" references, she is 53 not 103.
Two media wh**es, one's a she devil and the other one's Mr. Moody. Who cares?
Wow a lot of Madonna filled venom on this articel. The fact is Madonna is the greatest female artist of all time. She has the most Top 10 hits, the highest grossing tour, the biggest album sales, a plethora of number 1's, is the the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (before you dismiss that was Diana Ross ever rock...no so move on), 2 Golden Globes and is too busy planning her Superbowl performance and soon to be number 1 album and smash single to care what you all think. Madonna might not be as "warm" as some other divas in interviews but I admire her longevity, talent, ambition (she's responsbile for her own decisions not the record company) and prefer her intellegence (would Britney or Rihanna ever use words like reductive or zeitergeist). GaGa and Beyonce come across as fake nice in interviews when Madonna is Madonna, unapologetic and real. Elton's comments we're completely rude and Madonna once again reminded everyone that she is the one and only Queen of Pop.
Every film Madonna has been attached to has bombed, including her latest so I was surprised she won the award. If she wins an Oscar for the song her ego will become even more insufferable and her head will explode.
They're both vile trannies.
Madonna is just happy that there are more kids in third world countries that she can steal away from their parents.
Jealousy is a frock best worn in private, Elton John.
Elton and his, well, whatever you call it (sidekick), are embarrasing morons! Jealous morons! Ugh!
It's a has-been throwdown. At least Madonna still has a singing voice. Elton John can only croak at this point.
Elton is bitter for some reason, Madonna cannot sing..she was lucky.
Madonna is a truly global icon and best selling pop female of ALL time.. so she must have done something right. It always amazes me how people in the US speak so negatively of her, whereas in the rest of the planet, she is pretty much considered no.1, Elton John is the sore loser in this case – she sid nothing to provoke, instead she handled it very well
Madonna is peanuts compared to Sir Elton John. Sorry, but he is a true classic artist.
Madge could only hope to aspire to the bit##$ status that Elton sang of long ago.
madonna is bigger than michael jackson was, but it is a close tie, i lean to madonna side.
Why can't these freaks get along? Two old queens. At least Madonna has class, unlike Queen Elton and his wife, David.
To all you Madonna HATERS out there: Can you spell or say the word JEALOUS???? If you don't like her music or her personally that's ok but you don't need to be hateful or disrespectful.
1. She has more money than you'll ever have.
2. She is more famous then you'll ever be.
3. She'll be long remembered after you have been buried and turn to dust.
Not Surprise about his/her response. He/she is a wannabe.
Madonna is the REAL Woman, mother in all sense of the word and wannabe he/she on the other hand, in my opinion is not in her league. JEALOUS, JEALOUS JEALOUS.
Who opened the closet???????????????
@Nimrod: Lady Gaga is better looking than Madonna? That buck toothed freak??? Lady Gaga is about as attractive as a wet fart. She took a whoopin' with the ugly stick a few times too many.
I grew up listening Elton and enjoyed his music then clubbing to Madonna's music. Both are great musicians, it's too bad that Elton feels he's better than Madonna, obviously not! Quit acting so hissy...
Elton John, the joke is on you. Punk
Come on, chicas... no need to be catty. You don't wanna break a nail! Honestly, I saw Elton in concert last year, and he was really awesome to his fans. He seemed to be really happy. Maybe he just wasn't having a good day and put his foot in his mouth.
CAT FIGHT !
This illustrates, once again, that the Golden Globe voters have no taste. They vote for this no-talent slag, Madonna, over a real musician and composer, Elton John. I wonder how much Madonna paid the voters.
I find it interesting that early in Madonna's career the critics were always ignoring her, now she wins an award for a song that most of the world hasn't even heard yet?
Elton was pretty catty, but over all he is a much better lyricist than Madonna.
I grew up an Elton fan but Madonna is right on this one. Elton needs to go back to Britain where they listen when royalty whines. Who anointed him Music God? He's not THAT good.
It's confirmed by all these posts, drama sells.
As for this feud, everyone needs to stop being so stupid. These folks set stuff up like this in order to get attention. Both Elton and Madonna know how to market themselves. So while you all are talking trash to each other, Elton and Madonna are sitting somewhere laughing their tails off at all of you because you all believe they are against each other. They know people are stupid and love drama because DRAMA SELLS.
Who gives a flying f#!$ about these selfish divas. Get a freakin life. Another example of the dumbing down of society. Lowest common denominator.
well deserved MADONNA is the greatest entertainer of our generation, not drug addict, great mother and humanitarian, outstanding performer unlike anyother,
Jerod VC. give me a break. Madonna is NOT the greatest entertainer of our generation. Madonna knew how to market herself with controversery and drama. I have notice many GREAT performer do NOT respect her. Her music is ok but she is NOT the greatest. YOu are the first to say that she is great. As for your drug addict comment, oh please, you do not know what drugs Madonna have used (she has had abortions and other things). And remember, drugs and rock in roll goes hand in hand; and if that determines who is great or not because someone may have been addicted to drugs, then Elvis would be considdered never great along with many others. Even Ray CHarles was addicted to drugs at one time.
Funny, she looks like a dude and he wants to be a chick. No fued there....
It's his fault that he made the song for a movie about freaking gmones re-telling Romeo and Juliet.
Elton is just jealous. He wish that he look as good as Madonna. He wish he had a body like Madonna, He wish he had gorgeous hair like Madonna, Oh Hell lets face it He wish that he was a woman like Madonna
Like she really cares ...
I life is complete now that she has won this award. WHO CARES?!?!?!?!?
Well, congrats to Madonna!
Great! I just saw the news that http://www.seniorssingledating.com/ is the best and most effective senior dating site for senior singles over 50! Many of our members are well-educated, successful, and fresh in mind.
Elton John has always had a big trap that get's him into trouble. The guy just doesn't know when to shut up.
It's a prank. It's a fact that gay guys love Madonna.
She is still beautifull at her age.
Maybe it's not just his money. Maybe he has a big d!ck.
Who the eff
cares? They are
both annoying old
farts who just
need to hurry up
Now that was an odd reply.
Except for David Furnish not being from Malawi I can't tell them apart.
I thought it was pretty rude of Elton John to talk like that on the Red Carpet, counting his chickens before they've hatched. And as for David Furnish, just what is it that he furnishes? He should have been a good little wife and stood behind his husband with his mouth shut.
I think that often people forget to be humble in accepting praise. That the ones giving the praise and kudos are watching, and I find this behavior distressing. No matter how you got up that ladder, in the end it is the consumers purchases that get you there.
I don't think Madonna looked all that great. She's starting to get those 'old lady' arms, you know the ones, where the skin is starting to wrinkle and get all thin and boney. Wait until she turns 60...you're gonna see one ugly broad doing all kinds of things to her face just to look 50! Very unclassy individual....
Unclassy? Pot calling the kettle black. Enough said.
To hannah01: Tina Fey said it best......Madonna and her "gollum" arms. This was said on one of the 30 Rock episodes. I laughed my head off but it really is true........look at them! She works out constantly but those arms need a rest.
You all can criticize her all you want, at the end of the day, she's way more successful than any of you! LOL She has a Golden Globe, you have envy and judgement to chew on. LOL
That old queen (Elton) is jealous of Madonna. I don't know what his boyfriend finds attractive in Elton; it must be his money. It's certainly not his looks or his personality.
Tired and useless talent since she began her forceful dump of talentless crap music on us the world over; Sir Elton remains
the eloquent genius ; brilliant singer and humanitarian. When Madge hits the news in her latest incarnation of false self, or her latest boy toy romance Sir Elton seers us to the bone with his amazing and limitless talent and genuine character.
You couldn't be more wrong about Elton. He should be called Mamme, not Sir. She (Elton) doesn't hold a candle (in the wind) to Madonna.
GET OVER IT
These two Queens and their bickering. Geez
Madonna's not the one bickering. She's the civilized adult.
Madonna is not on OkChica.com this year?
According to Eltons partner it was that tme of the month for the Rocket Man, so it was understandable that he was a bit cranky on the red carpet.
Elton has done this to Madonna before. He is so bitter, unprofessional, and rude. In any professional environment – celebrity kind or not – this type of behavior is not acceptable. I have stopped buying tickets to his shows and his albums. Hit it where it hurts.
BOTTOM LINE, SHE WON! GET OVER IT!
The difference between these two people is one is a legend of Rock & Roll and has written some of the most memorable pop songs of the 20th century. The other one is T-I-R-E-D hag queen Madonna.
They're both tired old queens, but Dame Elton is more tired, and more queeny.
Can't understand Madonna,she is nasty,rude,vulgar,disgusting,not class at all just rich ... a lesbian never come out of the closet! .I prefer Elton John music ,he is a POET.
Elton doesn't write his own lyrics. Not very poetic...
Madonna is a low life from detroit who is a ruthless fame seeker who would step on anyone to get ahead. She makes me sick and i wouldn't spend a dime on her music or lame films.
Madonna's speech was the most awkward of the night. I was embarrassed for her. She needs to take a course on public speaking. Terrible!!!!
I grew up listenin 2 madonna but nowadays its like shes gota bash every1 so shes in the spotlight again. hello hunny u had ur time step 2 side & let others have their time
Shut up haters. Madonna handled it classy in the interview above and I'm glad she won it. Elton John is sick and pathetic loser. He throws all that cursing words thinking he is Lord and can say whatever he wanted. We should not forget when one incident he threw tantrum as ugly as his looks in Taiwan during a concert trip. Elton John is a sicko, and his partner can go to hell with him.
Did anyone hear when Ricky introduced Madonna as "the queen of rock", he said, "sit down Elton, not you, it's a woman...LOL.
Rock?!!! She doesn't know the meaning of the word!
He announced her as the queen of POP not the queen of ROCK.
I am so impressed with Madonna– wow! Usually, I don't like girls over 30. She's 23 years passed it and I think I'm in love.
You're a pig.
Their both old news! We live in a Lady Ga Ga & Adam Lambert world now.
An you also live in a poorly educated world, in which you lack the ability to correctly distinguish between there, their and they're. Lady Gaga and Madonna are both highly accomplished and talented, but Adam Lambert doesn't hold a candle to Elton John. Sorry.
Sorry – my typo above – I meant to write "And."
RE: Their both old news!
You mean they're (not "Their") old news. They're meansl they are. Remember, their, they're and there are all different!
Sounds like a scary place
I dislike Madonna but what a sore loser Elton John is.
that was crap
Madonnas cool and so is elton...so why do care that two queens are fighting?..and by the way madonna ur still looking fearless woman! u go girl..theyve been hating on u since u started..whogives a royal crap!
One is a blow hard and the other is a hard blower. You decide.
From what I've heard, they are both hard blowers.
Madonna is definitely the prettier of the two ladies.
Interesting how people get to a point where their fame makes them believe that they themselves are a god. They do and say whatever they think and feel with no concern for their fellow. And then, they try to excuse themselves basing their actions on hypocritical philosophies and ideas that do not cause true unity. What comes around goes around. Galatiians 6:7,8
Battle of the divas! Madonna won this round but don't count Elton out, she will be back!
You referenced Sir John as "she". That's crass and unkind of you to do so.
Nevermind that comment from Ruth-whatever. That was an accurate, and hilarious description of the supposed "Sir" Elton. By what I see he is acting like a "she". Just as caddy as any other girl on girl feud. Oh, and EJ was an arrogant ass for his/her red carpet statement. Looks like karma was in no mood for his/her antics either.
I did not realize how short and fat Elton John is. His butt is huge. Madonna did look good, and I'm know fan of hers. She had a "touch" of her English "accent" that kind of came out last nite. I sure do love Ricky Gervais. Too bad they kept him quiet and mostly behind the scenes. I never really watch award shows, except for the "stars" walking in and looking at what they are wearing. I did watch the whole thing just for Ricky Gervais. Was disappointed, but liked watching nevertheless!! MARY
The two of them are just awesome entertainers. I like Elton's oversized posterior. It's the width of a piano bench.
Elton is bi-polar ...I can recognize it a mile away. Inability to not say the first thing that comes to mind.
I agree he has the signs. Other celebrities have said Elton John is very moody and when he get's mad at someone he won't speak to you for a few years over something petty.
Madonna is a true diva, like Sir Elton. Two peas in a pod.
I think that expecting to win, and then not is a big letdown, but it happens. And when it does the classy thing is to lose with elegance. Now, I can understand him being angry, but to go off on a tirade, is ... wrong. I think he owes her and everyone else an apology. In this industry, as with any creative industry, it is not about talent as much as it is hard work, effort, tapping into what people want and having the luck to get it to them – when they want it and when/if they are paying attention. Honestly, I am a fan of neither but I can appreciate some of their music. You know, it's never about deserving... if everyone deserved what they earned, the world would be very different. Losing with dignity is harder to do than to win with pride. Understand this and I hope I don't see such petty behavior such as this again, because my OFF knob is easy to twist as is changing my mind on a music-CD purchase at the store or online. Understand? It’s not about you Elton or you Madonna or Elton’s husband... it’s about the consumers... and we... don’t much approve of this. The thing about $$ is, damn hard to earn but so-so easy to lose. One way is to separate your fan base due to bickering and petty arguments and another way is by being catty in public.
Madonna looks great for an older woman. The botox industry (Allergan) loves her.
Ironic: Two wicked people that can't stand each other.
Elton: "Can you feel the love tonight?"
Madonna: "I'm living in a material world."
...aannnnndddd....it's a miss.
maddonna is lying about her age she is closer to 60!
No, she's 53.
She used that funny mexikin accent last night during the awards. I loved it. Mexikins are always funny.
I love me some Madge, but she said "MY FILM" like 10 times.........sometimes she just needs to be herself. She should have thanked Elton during her acceptance speech for the positive energy he sent her way. He would have swallowed his tongue!
I find both "Sir Elton" and the wench, Madonna, to be tiresome bores and not worthy of special attention. Why such adoration for the court jesters? I don't get it.
Madonna is fill herself. Since when did she develop an english accent. Oh and I can count on two hands the number of times she stated that she directed W.E.
Maybe Madonna is "fill" of herself, but you're at least a decade late on the English Accent Thing because she no longer affects that mysterious vocal oddity. Did you even hear her last night? Spoke with no foreign accent at all.
Yes, she's developed an English affectation. What a phoney she is. I find her absolutely replusive, and much prefer Lady Gaga. Gaga is younger and much prettier then the old hag, Madonna.
Underneath it all Madonna is still a tramp from Detroit
It's clear Ida and people commenting about her are not even old enough to drink. Madonna has had an English accent before you were even born. She's been the butt of many jokes about it. If you prefer Gaga over Madonna, you have no taste. Gaga is a great singer, but it seems to stop there. And stop with all the ageism folks. Madonna looks great and has had a successful career for almost 30 years. Gaga will never achieve the same kind of longevity. She's already petered out.
Elton talking to Carson, two peas in a pod !
Elton must hate her for winning. His glasses fogged up at the news.
Elton.....can you say "jealous"?
Madonna looks gorgeous.
I'm not a big Madonna fan b/c of some of her past antics, but she is/was an amazing singer. @Richard....take a chill pill, you're way too uptight...Jagger has a right to his opinion and one shouldn't have to qualify a compliment by adding a person's age!!
I think what you mean is that her make up artist and plastic surgeon do awesome work.
Yeah, She could definitely win First In Show.
I agree. And, she is a bigger talent than Elton John.
It always gets ugly when a gag and his hag are on the outs.
The only "dum azz" I see here is you, Richard Fore.
@Richard Fore – good grief...a little high strung today? Slow down. Have some dip.
If I ever have another son, I want him to be just like Madonna.
She still floats my boat (among other things).
