Elton John's Husband David Furnish Rips Madonna for Globes Win


David Furnish was not happy about Madonna's Golden Globes win for Best Song, writing on Facebook, "Madonna. Best song???? F**k off!!!...Madonna winning Best Original Song truly shows how these awards have nothing to do with merit. Her acceptance speech was embarrassing in it's narcissism. And her critisism of Gaga shows how desperate she really is."

Carson_ejEarlier, on the red carpet, Elton had given an interview to Carson Daly in which he proclaimed, “Madonna hasn’t got a f**king chance."

Carson Daly responded "Those are fighting words."

Answered Elton: "They're accurate words."

Watch it, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Madonna has always been a fake gay advocate. Amazing how many dunderhead gays got sucked into her marketing strategy.

  2. I too was shocked when Madonna won. She has never had much talent to speak of other then being a great PR con artist. She will be shut out at the Oscars. I thought Jane Fonda looked smashing at 70+. Didn't find Ricky funny, let's hope this is his last stint. Geez Louise, these winners have got to shut up when they get to that microphone - on and on and on they went. It has always been pretty widely known that a Foreign Press award can be easily bought if enough cash is spread around. George Clooney plays the same role in every picture and his win was another "what?". The Bridesmaids is another picture I find more distasteful then I do award-worthy. War Horse, Hugo, Tin Tin were certainly true Hollywood pictures. Ides of March we've seen done a hundred times.

  3. Mrs. Elton John, sit down.

  4. Madonna and Elton are a good illustration of the bisexual double standard in the music industry.

    When Madonna was dabbling in sexual interactions with other women in her Sex book and Girlie Tour, everyone was saying how incredibly innovative and interesting she was. The word "sexy" was often used. If a chart-topping male were to interact with men in a concert or in a similar type of book, all hell would break loose. The same people who refer to Madonna as "sexy" would question the man's sexuality and try to rip him down.

    That's why male singers in the music industry often keep their sexuality a secret. Elton had to keep his a secret for many years. Even when he came out, he wasn't allowed to use it in his marketing and still doesn't.

    Madonna exploited this double standard to further her career and make lots of money. It's a homophobic double standard that she exploited. She's not our friend.

  6. Both Madonna and Elton John showed they don't like to laugh at themselves. Get over yourselves.

    Posted by: Matt26 | Jan 16, 2012 12:24:42 PM

  7. I honestly don't care about anything related to Madonna anymore, not her music or her antics or anything else. Go away now please.

  8. Why are some of you so sensitive? Everything is "homophobic" apparently. Elton is acting like a bitter queen with his comments. Elton John had to keep is sexuality a secret? It was obvious to many. Not everyone has to be all out and proud like many of you want. The nerve of anyone to say Madonna is homophobic. Ridiculous.

  9. they're all preposterously rich beyond belief and these agumentative feuds can safely be labeled "Rich White First-World People's Problems".

    when you have a twitterwar, of all things, over a golden globe win, OF ALL THINGS, then you show how utterly out of touch with reality you are.

  10. All four of them (Elton, his husband, Madonna, and her self-importance) just need to shut the hell up. They're all annoying, bitter, and egotistical. It is a bit amusing, though, how many gay men will rush to the defense of Madonna because they liked to dance to her music 15 years ago, regardless of how insufferably narcissistic she is and regardless of whether her talent remains. It never has in the movie department.

  11. Despite it all, Elton remains the most important pop musician - as much as there is such a thing - of the last 40 years.

  12. As much as I love Gaga and Madonna both I happened to agree w Madge's criticism of the SONG "Born This Way" as compared to "Express Yourself". I think she was spot-on by describing it as "reductive".
    Posted by: AJ | Jan 16, 2012 10:55:14 AM

    Really AJ? Reductive, really? In Respect Yourself, Vadge is demanding that you treat her honey spot oh so right...Gaga on the other hand created an anthem of inclusiveness cleverly syncopated to a popular disco baseline which was far more derivitive of the Stapler Singers more than Madonna, hey hey hey hey!

  13. I get such a laugh at some of the comments about celebrities. We don't know these people but some follow their every tweet. Elton does British pomp just right and Madonna does narcissism so well. These feuds are just PR. So are all almost every celebrity tweet. Everything is done to keep their names on your lips. It's all silly and means absolutely nothing and it's mean't to be entertaining. Which it is - if you understand it's all part of the circus.

  14. what a bunch of BITCHY QUEENS!! MADONNA won, GET OVER IT!!!!!

    Posted by: Bosie | Jan 16, 2012 1:19:23 PM

  15. @ Tadpolicus Wex Agree. Born This Way is infinitely better on every single level-than 'Depress Yourself', for one thing it has a REAL singer singing it and is a bold gay anthem. Gagdonna has never and would never do a gay anthem. It's an insult to Gaga to even begin to compare them. Absolutely loathe the fake Kaballah (and everything else) Madonna. I wonder how many 'gifts' she had to give to get this meaningless award??

  16. Furnish's tweet is unbecoming.

    Madge's speech was nauseating, as was her blah blah before announcing the foreign language film award. She's somehow manages to come across as self-obsessed, insecure and pretentious, despite her massive popularity. Sad.

  17. at least madonna's plastic surgeon is relatively good. david and elton look like fat puffy claymation elves

    Posted by: justin | Jan 16, 2012 2:24:46 PM

  18. I have no idea why these two have decided to make a spectacle of themselves. Between Elton cursing on the red carpet and David’s rant on Facebook, you’d think they were still in high school. I don’t get it. No one else behaved like this last night. They turned a positive, celebratory event into something very negative. Elton and David should have stayed home.

  19. BTW did anyone catch Madonna showing her true colors, when asked about Elton she asked Carson Daly if Elton was wearing a dress. Madonna is an ugly soul.

    Posted by: timothyjames24 | Jan 16, 2012 2:37:44 PM

  20. hey tim, she asked if he was wearing a green dress because she repeatedly has to listen to his nasty jealous comments, i.e., green with envy.

    Like the majority of others throwing insults at her, you don't get it unless it's in your face obvious

  22. My boyfriend didn't win a Golden Globe!!!! Talk about a First Class problem. People out there actually have REAL problems.

  23. Like school in the summer, no class.

    Posted by: ChristopherM | Jan 16, 2012 5:01:37 PM

  24. I can't believe no one has yet acknowledged that the corny piece of sh*t Elton got nominated for, "Hello Hello" from Gnomeo and Juliet, is a complete ripoff of The Beatles' "Hello Goodbye." Elton even admits so, though he calls it "a Beatles pastiche."

    Talk about reductive. At least Madonna's song was original.

  25. Elton John is a horrible, detestable man, and has been for at least 25 years. GO AWAY NOW PLEASE.
