Madonna forgives Elton John

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."

Adorable of the day: Elton John frets over Gaga

It seems like Elton John is in total protector mode these days - of his own 17-month-old son, Zachary, and, it seems, world-touring rock stars.

The legendary British singer told The Guardian recently that he does sometimes worry about Lady Gaga’s health.

"She is frail, and she doesn't eat when she should, and she's a girl, and it's tougher for a girl," the 65-year-old said of his 26-year-old friend's grueling performance schedule. “She works really hard. She will be in Denmark one night and Saudi Arabia the next. I know how tiny she is and I do worry about her, yes."

Elton John wants Justin Timberlake to play him in biopic

There's a biopic about Elton John in the works, and the musician already knows who he wants to land the lead role: Justin Timberlake.

Elton told the Los Angeles Times that he has a "wish list" of potential stars who could play him, but that the "Cry Me A River" crooner is a favorite.

"No. 1 on my wish list is Justin Timberlake, because he played me before in a David LaChapelle video of 'Rocket Man' and was superb," the Brit legend tells the L.A. Times.

Tyler Perry highest-paid man in showbiz

Knowing the success of his "Madea" franchise alone, it's not too surprising that Tyler Perry tops Forbes’ “Entertainment’s Highest-Paid Men” list this year. According to Forbes, Perry pulled in $130 million in 12 months, beginning in May 2010.

TV shows “Meet the Browns” and “House of Payne” are huge moneymakers, as are Perry’s wildly popular movies. The actor/producer/director/screenwriter will star in the upcoming film adaptation of James Patterson’s Alex Cross detective novels.

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer earned his spot at No. 2 with some help from the fourth “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie, which raked in $1 billion globally. This pushed Bruckheimer’s yearly haul to $113 million.

In a new interview with Rolling Stone, the 63-year-old proud papa dishes out what he calls “tough love.”

"At the end of the day, he's coasting," John says in the interview. "I always say, 'Billy, can't you write another song?' It's either fear or laziness. It upsets me. Billy's a conundrum.”
