Although Elton John's sniped about Madonna's latest tour, likening her style to that of a "fairground stripper," Madge tried to take the high road at her tour stop in Nice, France, on Tuesday.
She even dedicated her song "Masterpiece" to Sir Elton, noting that "he's a big fan of it, and I know he's a big fan of mine."
Fans might beg to differ, recalling the words the music legend told an Australian TV outlet earlier this month.
"She's such a nightmare," John said to Australia's "Sunday Night." "Her career's over ... and she looks like a f*****g fairground stripper."
However, Madonna's putting all that aside. "You know what?" she told the audience. "I forgive him. Gotta start somewhere."
Check out the video, as posted on madonna-TV.com, below.
queen madonna is not pig like gaga
Madge ain't a girl scout either.
But she likes to eat their cookies!
and that's why he has to bang her...duh...i love myself sometimes i truly do.
Silence you 2 old queens...only one of you has man parts....Madonna
The preceding tour announcements brought to you by Colon Blow: When that last break before the encore goes a little longer than expected.
I have to give it to her in this case. Elton has been a sore loser since he lost the Golden Globe. Not to say that Madonna's song was any better. But for any man (yes, even gay men) to insult a woman publicly like that, shows lack of manner and class.
Madonna received a good pounding for the fake british accent which was well deserved...
Madonna cut it out and is speaking more NY and acting proud of her Italian Heritage. She
deserved alllllllllllll of those blogs. She is Italian American she should be proud of it.
Madonna said she takes it because she cares for him. (i'm sure she'd like to give him a good right hook, but she won't). Madonna is very strong.
Madonna is a total flake. The only thing bigger than her ego is her narcissism. She moves over there, puts on a pathetic phony "British" accent, and walks around like she was born there. SO insulting to English people! Frankly, I'm surprised a bunch of them haven't tarred and feathered her and run her out on a rail. She really is disgusting.
I used to like both of them, but now only one of them: Madonna. I cannot believe what a bitter, old queen Elton has become. She has been nothing but civil to him and he keeps taking pot shots at her. Let's face it – both of there careers are not what they used to be, but Madonna is much more successful than he is, and overall she's still had a more successful one than him.
she s a amazing a woman her age still has x written all over it.
hope i am still like that when i'm her age
OMG, you're kidding, right?
She is a petrie dish and he is banal.
Why doesnt he concentrate on his own sinking career..........I have never been a fan of artist who bad mouth other artist.
As for her career being over, her MDNA cd was #1 in 44 country. That does not sound over to be. He is acting like a bitter old gay man who is waving at a parade that has long past him by. what a loser
As they grow older, they look more and more like one another. Maybe one of them is the alter ego of the other. Has anyone ever seen both of them in the same place at the same time?
i like sr. Elton John the song BELIVE its a great song and a like Madona LA ISLA BONITA them are a nice great artist PAPOTES
i like sr elton jhon BELIVE its a greet song ... and i like
Can't help admiring her. She's a one of a kind performer.
Elton John is an embarrassment.
Madonna's career is not over for now...she brought in $340 mil on this tour at 54 yrs old. that's not bad.
i suspect because of her age she will decide year by year what she will be working on.
she tours every 3 years..next tour she will be 57..i'm not sure if she will be touring this heavily anymore. Madonna is is very lucky she became famous at 24 yrs old she can be a drama queen but she still brings the bucks into the record co.– she is able to control her own destiny.
Madonna's music and concerts vastly outsell Sir Elton's and always have. In fact I think she had the highest grossing world tour of 2011. If "her career is over", I wonder how he evaluates the state of his own career. Personally I like them both, but John made an ass of himself with this statement.
Just so you know, in 2011 Madonna's tour didn't rank in the top 25
@Bobby: The reason Madonna's tour didn't rank in the top 25 in 2011 was because she DIDN'T TOUR in 2011. Her last concert tour, Sticky & Sweet, was #4 in the world.
Elton John, on the other hand, hasn't done much of anything in awhile.
w/e they are both a couple of has beens who are no longer relevant. this little manufactured fued serves both of them well by keeping their names in the press. it was probably all pre-arranged by their publicists.
people people...this are just jokes. never take any of that personally. its all in fun.
i heard she's made over 340mil now with this tour..wow.
Medical Marijuana Patients against Obama – STOP the attacks by Obama's federal thugs – STOP the Stupid Joke.
your just a pugsley making trouble...
Mom? along with the fried mouse tails can i have a glass of frog toad ear milk. thanks.
madonna is rumored to be amazing in bed...elton? i would have to say flat tire.
I'll bet she's amazing! She's had enough experience!
"Don' shoot me, I'm just the piano player" was the last good music Elton made. Early 70's when he was young and full of it. Madonna, meh ... she never made music, tho she's got pipes at least. So props to them for what they have done, but I wish they'd retire.
Elton is Kool!
Elton is a bigtime star and very gracious.
sure dignity is important...but when its time for fun..its remains there.
What kind of world do these people live in? Sure they have money, but it's warped their brains. That's not worth it to me. Dignity is more important because when you die, that's all that remains.
my cousin vetts in passing just said...she still has bedroom eyes..i'd take her...lol
these 2 are suvivors and they will get over this mess.
Elton can be a old fart, i thought he was much more fun.
Entertainers are well – entertainers. These two never made a penny off of me!
Do you think the fr uit cake cares what she thinks?
Jealousy bites, I mean look at her, she's hot, and he wishes he could be hot. That's got to hurt, that whole mirror image every day. Ouch. Old age, it sucks, oh well. Fugly, never good. Darn, Elton, sucks for you, and not in a good way either.
Madonna hon it's over please take your trashy concert tour and be done with it already. You my dear are way past your prime..........You are no longer the Material Girl or wait perhaps you are and this is what you turned into!
Is Elton and Madonna getting married already?
Is you going to study English grammar sometime?
its ok...take it easy..xo–
I HAVE HAVE AN ABUSIVE HACKER IN MY COMPUTER
its just a joke folks.
is a loser

Unlike Madonna, Elton is actually a musician.
I think the reason he popped off at M is because of her remarks about Lady Gaga.
Since Lady G is the Godmother of his child I would think M just P'd him off.
Besides what he said is pretty much true. Today M seems to need to create controversy to be relevant.
get a room guys..i've been saying this for years!!
great publicity stunt for both of them. that's why they are where they are.
Hello folks. Everyone is cordially invited to visit – thestarofkaduri.com
i hate women
i'd still bang elton he's hot.
She has a Golden heart and we are proud of her.
old tired queen Elton, he should stick to performing in drag shows in gay bars
Uh, actually Elton's venue is not gay bars but world-class stadiums of 40,000, 60,000, 80,000 people. And that's worldwide. He's a household name in EVERY household worldwide. He's been an icon for 40 years and continues to sell out huge stadiums. What did you do with your life? Hater...
she couldn't sing then and she can't sing now . as for Elton hes nothing more than an old tiered queen
Ummm.... CNN? She was obviously being sarcastic since he's publicly stated his disdain for both the song & her.
they gotta bang.
Two pompous jerks who should spend their time giving thanks to all of the people who have purchased their albums over the years.
Um, perhaps you haven't heard of the ELTON JOHN AIDS FOUNDATION.
This will end when the "people" decide to end it. It's not even up to Madonna or Elton John. If people pay to see them that's all they need. When they don't pay to come and see them then it's over. How can ONE indiviudal say it's over when they haven't heard the voice of the other 7 billlion? Kind of arrogant. Now for ME, theya re over, I don't watch them anymore. But GUESSS WHAT? I don't DECIDE for everyone. YOU GUYS, individualy, decide for you own selves.
What a com guzzling gutter tramp. John not Maddona
this will end soon and i feel they are the right track slow as it might be. did i mention she still has darn good hair for her age?
Elton and Madonna must realize they have to hop on the that soul train of love. they are professionals and are able to get the decision made. they've been this business a long time and i don't see the problem
Best of Luck Elton and Madonna!
did you get them all?
Reblogged this on Billy Moses.
Most reviews are crap and repeat themselves. sorry about yesterday mumzy was around.
we will try next week, make sure you in a good mood.
It's great to see Madonna being the more mature person here. Elton John has been rude to her and it seems that it's just because he is jealous of her success.
Madonna still has it!
madonna is a rude vile pig
It´s nice to see Madonna without her "Walker" . Maybe Elton´s just jealous of her,
I understand that he can´t bend over in the wind because he begins to "Whistle " .
They are probably just doing it on the sly to get into the news anyway.
Madonna forgives the f@#$king bloated hippo in the suit.
Did anyone here ever stay awake in grammar class?
Nice grammar, David.
He's just jealous that he looks worse than her when he is half naked on stage that's all. If they teamed up they could both rule the fairgrounds!
i love these 2 there are wonderful human beings
messed up again.
thats right elton never asked her sh-t...thats why she's hurt.
Madonna forgive elton? since when Elton ask her for forgiveness?
who care about them..they've been fighting for year...
i love madonna.. she made the move-she's still hurt..he'll let go of it.
Madonna shows here who is a classy lady!
Classy lady ? what a riot! she is not more tha a vulgar wannabe singer! I disike Elton but in terms of musical knowledge he is the winner,Madonna went to the peak bin those years was not such a thing but she is not that good indeed,besides Elton never ask her for forgiveness ....about what? he is a millionaire more than her he don't care about her at all,,she is getting old and is time for her to RETIRE! not very impress by her ,did you read her nasty book? she is vulgar !
They are done with the feud. he's still going to call her a lip sync old biatch, but she said at least she knows he's thinking about her now...LOL
They will have to bury her in a Y-shaped coffin. Little Diva dont like bid bad man-
diva spewing bile about her. You get what you give out sister! Now go and solve all the world's problems by telling them what to do since you are such the stateswoman. So she wont have to try to jiggle it.
*soon she wont have to try to jiggle. sorry
I think she should apologize to the world for polluting the airwaves with the crap she calls "music."
How are these two in any way still relevant?
He's the head of the Gay Mafia......she had better forgive him.
she can't bang him because he's a wimp...madonna wants a freak..not a wimp
"And they live happily ever after" :)
i always thought they should the sheets but he's too vicious and you have to be a fake american or a troll to fit in.
She hasn't done anything new/important/fun in years.
He hasn't done anything new/important/fun in DECADES.
Pizza in Princeton? never you cannot be trusted as a matter of fact i am scared Elton. One should stay clear of him.
she has to forgive him..he's a very mean person.
