Elton John's Husband Trashes Madonna For Golden Globe Win And Speech!

Categories: Elton John

Madonna had just won Best Song for co-writing something that pops up in the February release W.E.

Sir Elton (who's British royalty just like Dame Madge herself) hadn't won for "Hello Hello" from the animated movie about lawn gnomes in love.

And Sir Elton couldn't disguise his apparent indigestion as the camera closed in on him.

He looked like he was smelling some kind of "Masterpiece" all right, especially since he'd told a red-carpet interviewer that Madge didn't have "a fucking chance" to win.

Elton's consolation? His song is on the qualifying list for an Oscar nomination. Madonna's is not.

UPDATE: Elton's husband, David Furnish, went even further. Here's the message on David's Facebook page: "These awards have nothing to do with merit. Her acceptance speech was embarrassing in its narcissism. And her criticism of Lady Gaga shows how desperate she really is."

Ooh! British snit fight!

Meanwhile, strong reactions continued when Madonna used her other Golden Globes screen time -- when she presented Best Foreign Film -- to gush about her early love of films by foreign auteurs like Luchino Visconti, art-house gems that must have filled the screens of Bay City when she was a child.

Not since Streisand compared herself to Kurosawa on the very same awards telecast have I been so visibly moved.

But the best reaction shot of all came courtesy of the fat guy from Modern Family when Matt LeBlanc won.

Here it is, at the 1:29 mark. It's worthy of Visconti.

Lady Gaga has used and ripped off lists of other artists for imaging and marketing purposes, such as Roisin Murphy and Grace Jones, yet because Madonna has based 30 years in the music biz ripping off other creators, she gladly relishes the designed opportunity to condone the “Gaga” product packaged and sold by Madonna’s current label which her friends and some producers work closely with for years, Lady Gaga is quite accomodating and convienent for Madonna……her being nice has nothing to do with it. Elton John his partner and Madonna it seems are able to resolve their issues, for people over 50 one must give them a round of applause, how mature of you. Madonna who has been claiming to support the independent music world for years signed herself to yet another major label “recently” as reported in the news, however has she yet to appear in the independent music awards shows which is where all the other music and truly creative people are, with her it appears that looks are important ultimately, however her actions prove otherwise-as she isn’t releasing this current project herself thus she is no activist or associate to independent artists and originators but a gawker, an unactive , she doesn’t write her own material most of the time and she obviously can’t “make it alone’ as in a most current interview she stated she doesn’t even cook her OWN goddamn meals-hired help does, they also raise her children-she does little herself or on her own-but stamps a label on others work continually. Did her homeless brother ever get shelter? Thank God Madonna is appearing magmanimous in public or else her paid p,r advisors could lose their jobs. She causes loss for the art world and economic strife for many then uses poor people as poster children to gain a more giving nature from her controlled malleable “fans”, who will defend her aimlessly as they think she is doing something for them, this kind of psychological impact has created a schism and empty nest in the minds of countless of media victims. Madonna has done an exemplary role none the less at convincing some people otherwise,

All of this negative energy focused toward Madonna only discredits the false claims of her irrelevance and lack of talent! So she mentioned her movie several times....so what? She thanked all involved graciously as per usual. Anyone with actual knowledge regarding her career knows she wrote much of her material even on her debut album, was in a band prior to that playing guitar, drums and keyboard. Enough to have SOLO writing credits on several tracks. As for the singular "negative" remark regarding GAGA'S BTW, it was followed by nothing but praise for the girl in both the ABC and Graham Norton interviews. So tired of the "old and talentless" comments as well. She looks lovely and her voice is compelling and full of both passion and haunting precision. Is she always note-perfect live? No, but when at her best she can be surprisingly strong vocally. YOUTUBE crazy for you from the VIRGIN TOUR...or her live oscar performance of SOONER OR LATER if you need a reminder.

It could all be staged for publicity,, Elton has a new album coming out, as madonna. Madonnas new single that leaked is awful and sounds like "mickey" by Toni Basil. Wish her luck with her new cd,,, everyone will be watching the superbowl,, nicki minaj, mia will join her, now the rumour is katy perry will play guitar on ray of light with her and LMFAO will join her for Holiday, lets hope this is not true.

To me, the most shocking thing about the Golden Globes was seeing the greatest actress in the world, Meryl Streep, having to walk past several tables to get to the front of the stage.  Seriously...she's Meryl Fucking Streep.  She should have a front table at any award ceremony she's involved in.

I think it's really PATHETIC when LIVING LEGENDS & ICONS act badly! I mean really, does Sir Elton have to win every year?  Did Disney buy him out? Madonna works her ass off and as a woman I think she deserves everything she gets! She is a talent......so GET USED TO IT!  I respect them both as artists and they should both just kiss and make up and maybe do a duet together! It's beneath them both to be so PETTY and JEALOUS! Maybe they should learn the words GRACIOUSNESS & HUMILITY!Montgomery Frazier "The Image Guru"

Her speech was a commercial for her movie. It was more like a plug than an cep trance speech. She lacks any humilit and graciousness! Tacky!!! Money can't buy you class!

Oh please. How many times has Elton opened his big mouth to publicly trash Madonna. On the red carpet before he said that Madonna had no [bleep]ing chance of winning. Then he lost. To her. And GAGGED!! Then, the husband he bought a few years ago goes on Facebook like a passive aggressive 13 year old ranting that these awards have no merit? You would think that Elton John, as successful as he is would have a little more class. This just made him look like an old fool.

Why would she not talk about her movie in the acceptance speech, it's where the song she CO-WROTE is from, she explained how the song came about, thanked the relevant people, and YES she plugged her movie.  But so what, the entire awards season is about plugging movies and patting each other on the back.  Madonna spent three years putting her film together, something I highly doubt the "artist" Elton John would ever be able to do (nor his b*tch Furness, apparently a film maker himself LOL), so can you blame her for taking the spotlight when she won the award.  She won't be nom'd at the Oscars so this was her moment to shine.  Elton's song is also not a very good song, certainly well below his earlier stuff.  His ugly mug during Madge's speech was the moment of the night, that is until M stole the show with her comeback to Gervais.  All hail her Madgesty!

this is why--though, popular and had the number 1 selling album that year--they, intentionally, did not invite the spice girls to the grammy awards.also, the took back milli vanilli´s award.then why should they give madonna an award? dj infused music?only time madonna ever had a good song is when someone did the song for her. babyface, björk, public enemy, nile rodgers, shep pettibone, etc.

madonna is not an artist! she was the beginning of the untalented era!° she can´t sing, she can´t arrange music, she can´t even play an instrument. the critics once viled her. now, they give her awards. why?i can understand elton john´s frustration like a lot of true artists today who can sing, write and produce their own music. gone are the days when people like stevie wonder could write and produce a whole double album and did deserve that award.this is why people, today, are becoming less and less interested in these shows. alot of people feel like elton john. why did she get an award?

Oh, Elton....this kind of petty homodrama does not play well at your age.  I had thought their feud was more of a "kidding" sort of thing...but I guess they really do hate each other.  But who invited EJ's wife in on the bitchfight?  In any case, I thought Madge had the best bitchy barb of the night, calling the almost sleepwalking Ricky Gervais a woman and all  (I was surprised that HE didn't slap back!  Was he medicated last night?).  Furthermore, on "Nightline" the other night, after calling Gaga's "Born This Way" 'reductive', Madge's perfectly-timed, deliciously bitchy "Look it up!" as she sipped from her teacup was pretty brilliant, I've gotta say....

I bet the two people who really wrote the song had to sign something where they'd never reveal what really happened.

Those two hate each other, add the out of left field Lady Gaga criticism just a few days before and you suddenly have Sir Elton actually caring about the standards and choices of the "Hollywood Foreign Press".

Since it really ISN'T about merit, what does that say about the fact that these same sour grapers have won in the past?

what upsets me personally, as a fellow michigander, is that, somehow, i have not developed  a rather mangled posh brit accent yet!  trying to be positive and proactive, i have made an appointment for a series of elocution classes to address the problem. cheers

Watch Madge's acceptance speech and take a shot every time she says, "My movie."  I love me some Madge but she acted like the award was for Best Picture instead of Best Song.

what an uneducated post, surely you're joking right? For starters, she has writing and production credits on ALL of her albums since True Blue (1986). Yes, the contribution efforts on some songs is less than others, but I can tell you that on most she has a SIGNIFICANT contribution. And what's this about being unable to play an instrument? It's not like she hasn't been playing guitar on her last few tours or anything. And some of her albums have has absolutely fabulous reviews from critics (Like A Prayer, Ray Of Light, Music, Confessions on a Dancefloor), so the critics have been enjoying her since 1989. One of the main criticisms of Madonna's last album was that while it was certainly an enjoyable pop album, critics know that she can DO BETTER. Seriously, why someone bothers reading an article on someone they don't even like astounds me. And then to make a bunch of uninformed judgements about someone they don't even know! Tell me, have you been in the recording studio with Madonna? Have you seen her live shows? Have you even listened to her albums?Staying sucessful in the music industry for 27 years in not an easy feat, and it's amazing that she is STILL breaking records. She is an artist, and she's done a hell of a lot more with her life than ANYONE here I imagine.

When Madonna said, "Come here, Ricky. I haven't kissed a girl in a while," he was seen running offstage behind her to safety. It was kind of cute, but not everyone saw it.

she, probably, didn´t knowing madonna. (and patrick leonard.) how she used the vogue children!material girl she did not write. for like a prayer the song is only good because of the andraé croach choir. you can hear the black "lady" at the end of the song giving it as madonna keeps her mouth shut. you even see in the video she´s only wigging out and clapping her hands as the black"lady" is doing all the work--SINGING!her first album was produced by mtume. juicy fruit fame.she´s lucky she dated jellybean and frankie crocker gave her a break! she was booed at the garage!not to say i didn´t enjoy her in the beginning but she´s full of herself. if madonna calls i´m not here! work franklin!!!!!where are those african children she adopted? you see guy rich took his son away from her!and like a prayer is a tired song. too commercial. i´m talking before madonna went mainstream. when she was just a new york thang!

All due respect, I think that's EXACTLY what we need to do: get rd of them. COnsider a quote, written today, from a dear friend and veteran of the real NYC scene:

Apart from the comments I spy here on Facebook, I know next to nothing about the Golden Globes, what the contenders were nominated for, and who said what. Celebrity culture seems to me the last desperate vestiges of sublimated imperialism among the disenfranchised. I'm not talking about recognition and intelligent critique of genuine talent - I'm talking about the fatuous prattle of award events, which as far as I can see, are akin to high school popularity contests, and no less absurd than the culture of sports television. What Orwell and Huxley did not foresee was that our Brave New Post-1984 World would be paved with red carpets. - Jorge Socarras, 2012

I've always wondered if she just got to put her name on the songs because she's Madonna. (John Wesley Harding did a really good cover of Like a Prayer years ago.)
