Lady Gaga Defended by Elton John and David Furnish in Madonna Feud
Will it ever end?!
Ever since Madonna hit the road promoting her film ‘W.E.,’ the press has hounded the Material Girl over her thoughts on Lady Gaga. Now, following Madge’s Golden Globe win for ‘Masterpiece,’ two more divas have gotten involved — Elton John and his husband, David Furnish.
Before Madonna accepted her Golden Globe win, John told a reporter that she had “no f—in’ chance” at the award for Best Original Song — for which John was also nominated for his contribution to ‘Gnomeo and Juliet.’ When she did in fact win, TMZ reports that John was in the audience and “seemed p—ed off in the crowd when Madonna’s name was read.” We’ll attribute John’s beef with Madge to sour grapes. No one likes to lose!
However, John’s husband, David Furnish, was even angrier than John seemed to be. Furnish lashed out at Madonna on his Facebook page, posting, “Madonna. Best song???? F— off!!!” But he didn’t stop there. ”Madonna winning Best Original Song truly shows how these awards have nothing to do with merit,” Furnish continued. “Her acceptance speech was embarrassing in it’s narcissism. And her critisism [sic] of Gaga shows how desperate she really is.”
John and Furnish’s relationship with Gaga goes back quite a bit. They’re so close that they even named Mother Monster as their son Zachary’s godmother.
So far, Lady Gaga is the only person involved in this mess to not comment. For that reason alone, she may be the smartest of the bunch!
