Madonna’s Golden Globe Win Sparks Feud With Elton John

Two music giants went head to head in the same category for Best Original Song for the 2012 Golden Globes on Sunday, and while both [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Madonna[/lastfm] and Sir [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Elton John[/lastfm] are extremely talented artists, it seems the two don’t play nice together.

Elton let his true feelings be known about being nominated in the same category and eventually bested by Madge for Best Song, first sparking the feud on the red carpet before the show saying that she had “no (explicative) chance” of winning. So what did Madonna have to say about her rival?

Madonna picked up the Globe for Best Original Song for her song “Masterpiece” from her directorial debut W.E., saying about her competition with Elton before the show, “may the best man win.”

Well, it seems her win didn’t sit well with Elton or his husband David Furnish, who also vented his feelings about the snub on his Facebook.

“Madonna. Best song???? F**k off!!!” Furnish wrote on Facebook, according to TMZ. “Madonna winning Best Original Song truly shows how these awards have nothing to do with merit. Her acceptance speech was embarrassing in its narcissism.”

But through all the heated exchanges, Madonna seems to be taking it all in stride, noting that this isn’t the first time Elton has gotten upset with her. Back in 2005, Elton made a similar remark as Furnish when Madonna beat him out for Best Live Act at the GQ Awards, saying “Madonna, best f**king live act? F*** off!”

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

    It sounds like the makings of a good wrestling match; you know best two falls out three, winner take “Globe”. HA! I find this story to be “hilarious”, you know like when one kid has a a ball and won’t share it with the other kid–“NO MINE!” You would think that ther would be some “admiration for someone else winning a globe”. Maybe the two should settle it out in a ring like the Israeli’s and Palestinian’s should; they’ve been arguing for years, right? HA! LIGHTEN UP!

    This morning on the show… Madonna was referred to as “Madonkey” and I gotta say, being a long time listener… I was rather disappointed. Yes, she’s not the most modest person ever, nor was Diana Ross in her day, nor Elvis Presley. This morning’s mirroring of hatred just catapulted all parties involved this morning into “regular radio” trash. I chose K-Earth 101 years ago because A) I grew up on the music, B) it was like no other station, clean and cheerful, and finally C) it played MUSIC with commentary that made people feel good. WAY TO GO, GUYS… You’ve become the epitome of your competition: TRASH.
