We hope Madonna has a thick skin, because fellow music legend Elton John has fired off some awfully barbed remarks.
While chatting with an Australian media outlet, the topic of Madge - who's been having tough times on tour - came up during conversation. According to Sir Elton, Madonna may as well hang it up and head home because her "career is over."
"She's such a nightmare," John told Australia's "Sunday Night." "Her career's over ... and she looks like a f*****g fairground stripper."
It seems John's taken issue with the fact that Madonna's been, in his estimation, "so horrible to [Lady] Gaga," his friend and the godmother of his son, Zachary.
John reportedly also had a bit of advice for the superstar, adding in the interview, "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."
