Elton vs. Madonna
Elton John lashes out at Madonna after discovering her nomination for "Best Live Act" by Q Magazine: "Anyone who lip-synchs in public on stage when you pay 75 pounds ($134) to see them should be shot. Madonna, best fucking live act? Fuck off. Since when has lip-synching been live? That's me off her f---ing Christmas card list but do I give a toss? No."
Liz Rosenberg responds: "Madonna does not lip-synch nor does she spend her time trashing other artists. She sang every note on her Reinvention tour live and is not ashamed that she was well paid for her hard work. Elton John remains on her Christmas card list whether he is nice ... or naughty."
