Madonna Forgives Elton For Calling Her A ‘Fairground Stripper’

The pop queen said the pair have to "start somewhere".

Madonna said she has “forgiven” Elton John for calling her a “fairground stripper”.

The 54-year-old pop queen dedicated her song ‘Masterpiece’, which won a Golden Globe award earlier this year, to the British ‘Candle In The Wind’ singer.

The British star was performing in the French city of Nice on Tuesday and dedicated the song to Elton John, saying the pair had to “start somewhere” to end their long-running feud.

She told the crowd; “I know he’s a big fan of it. And I know he’s a big fan of mine. And you know? I forgive him. Gotta start somewhere.”

There has been no love lost between the feuding pair in recent months, with Elton initially furious after Madonna won the Golden Globe over his song ‘Hello, Hello’ from his movie, ‘Gnomeo and Juliet’. Elton’s partner David Furnish branded her as “desperate”.

But that was not all. Elton then lashed out at her MDNA world tour, slamming her appearance and her career choices.

Elton gets personal with his criticism of Madonna.

The singer said; “Why is she such a nightmare? Sorry, her career is over. Her tour has been a disaster and it couldn’t happen to a bigger b*tch.

“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.

“But no, she had to go and prove … she looks like a f***ing fairground stripper.”

Phew, harsh stuff Elton. Looks like Madonna forgives and forgets quite easily.
