  1. She doesn't lip-sync she uses auto-tune!

  2. By child, I can only assume he is referring to himself? What a big crybaby.

  3. What a bitter, jealous, nasty old queen!

    He can just be happy with all his millions, fame, husband and child.

    Maybe he'll be watching the Super Bowl half-time show over at Rush Limbaugh's house on the big screen?

  4. I loose more respect for Elton every time he opens his big fat mouth. I always thought I would want to see him in concert, not so much anymore.

  5. He's a great role model for his son, clearly. Solve your bitter non-issues with passive aggressive statements, rather than letting them go or actually confronting them like an adult.

    That's one couple I would have never supported having a child, biological or otherwise. They hardley pass the test for behaving adults.

  7. FRANCO: Good point! :)

  8. Anyone who is responding to Elton by calling him names and making catty comments about him are just as bad as what they're saying HE does.
    (I know... somehow it's different and ok... No. It's exactly the same.)

  9. The only comment I have is that I wish he would have told her to lip sync WELL, instead of good.

  10. Wow, I wish this bitter bloated tick would shut up, and keep his jealous tired ass remarks to himself. Not just for the defense of Madonna. Not all old middle aged gay men are so jaded and bitter and jealous.

  11. I thought elton john died years ago....
    oh right just his career and his legacy.

  12. Haha. Come on, it's kind of funny. Proves he can dish it out just as well as he can take it. (That sounds dirty, but you know what I mean.)

  13. Go Elton! The woman cannot and has never been able to sing.

  14. What a bitter old Queen.

  15. seems like he is promoting his own superbowl ad,where he took take after take. At least Madonna is doing her performance in one take. Madonna wins!

  16. At least we found out what he spent Limbaugh's million dollar fee on: that outfit.

  17. For someone who is supposedly in "recovery" he comes across as bitter and nasty...which means he is basically a "dry drunk" and no where near "sober."

  18. Madonna's done more for gay visibility and furthering discussions of gay sexuality than Elton John—and that's an embarrassing fact. Our straight allies are often far more useful than our gay brethren, especially someone as vile as Elton, who seems content to make money and never do anything outside the box. @Bfesnter: Where is it proven that he can "take it?" He has thinner skin than a tomato.

  19. The Elton John AIDS Foundation has raised over $200 million to support HIV/AIDS programs in fify-five countries. Pathetic bitter sloth....hardly. Grow up.

  20. Oh come on. The Madonnabots are being ridiculous. He was not being mean. He was just being honest. Sooner or later you Madonnabots, and I speak as a former Madonnabot, will have to admit it would be better for her to retire than to go on taking lukewarm $#!*S on her legacy every 3-5 years. It's embarrassing. Time for the Cirque du Soleil Vegas residency already.
    Before she commits further atrocities on her face. Now that last one was a little mean. Also, true.

  21. "Madonnabot", I love that name. So real.

  22. Elton was a cute furry cub in his younger days & kept himself in pretty good shape - maybe the coke helped keep the weight off. He could've aged into a hot daddy bear instead of a fat old thing who shaves the hair off of his face & body and wears that silly fake hair on top of his head. Guess he never got into the gym. He's also lost a least an octave off of the top of his singing range.
    I've never seen Madonna lip synch in a live show, although she does rely on her backup singers quite a bit.

  23. Well, you can't deny that Madonna's career has been based on AutoTune and lip-sync. It's scary that gay men were once so devoted to such a fake. Fakes admiring fakes.

  24. Madonna doesn't lip-sync exactly, she sings with a live mike along with her own pre-recorded vocals. I can't remember the name for it exactly...but the pre-recorded vocals cover up most of the sour notes and she can still throw in a few "wooohs" and "yeahs"" in between on the live mike, which will fool most of the people into thinking it's all 100% her live vocals. Most of the "non-singer" singers, like Janet Jackson, do it.

  25. And, as usual, a story on an out gay man--one of the very few out prominent gay men in any field and one who has contributed enormously to the gay community--is responded to with hate-filled, venomous, vicious remarks from other gay men.

    And then you all wonder why virtually no gay men of any prominence ever come out.

    It is because they see no point in it--if they do, you people spew hatred at them--if they don't, you people spew hatred at them.

    I personally am thrilled that Elton is a great football fan, hopes his son plays football, and took an opportunity to dump on a the self-involved little c*nt named Madonna.....and I am sure the vast majority of the population agrees, even as so many gay men, themselves, stew in their own bitterness and hatred over it all.
