The feud between Madonna and Elton John

Elton John and Madonna are in the middle of a huge feud — and honestly, I haven’t seen two queens go at it this hard since “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”

It started Sunday night at the Golden Globes, when both of the icons were nominated against one another in the category of Best Original Song. Madonna was nominated for “Masterpiece” in “W.E.” while Elton was tapped for “Hello Hello” from “Gnomeo & Juliet.”

When asked by Carson Daly on the red carpet about the chances of Madonna winning, EJ quipped: “Madonna doesn’t have a f—ing chance.”

Then, when Madonna actually won, Elton’s partner, David Furnish, went onto Facebook to vent his frustration. “Madonna. Best song???? F—off!!!” Not satisfied, he continued his rant: “Madonna winning Best Original Song truly shows how these awards have nothing to do with merit. Her acceptance speech was embarrassing in its narcissism,” he wrote.

Madonna won’t fight dirty though, and backstage she was the definition of polite.

“I hope he speaks to me for the next couple of years,” she said about John. “He’s been known to get mad at me so I don’t know. He’s brilliant and I adore him so he’ll win another award. I don’t feel bad!”

Way to take the high road, Madge. You could have easily just pointed out that the man known for such classics  as “Candle in the Wind” and “Rocket Man” was this year hoping to win an award for a movie called “Gnomeo & Juliet.”
