Elton John Reportedly Thought the Ugly Remarks He Made About Madonna Were 'Off the Record'

Elton John thought that remarks he made about Madonna in an Australian TV interview — he called her a "c*nt" and a "f**king fairground stripper", were off the record, according to an entertainment reporter on Radio 3AW’s Breakfast Show:

Elton_john3AW's entertainment reporter Peter Ford told Ross and John he had been contacted by Elton John's publicity team, first saying the claims made by Molly Meldrum were rubbish. Pete Ford said after telling Elton John's representative that the claims had aired on television, he was told that the conversation was allegedly 'off-the-record'.

"Elton's been around long enough to know that if there's a camera there and someone's standing behind it with a red light on... It's still being recorded," Peter Ford told 3AW Breakfast.

Speaking with 3AW Breakfast, Molly Meldrum said he was taken aback by Elton John's comments attacking Madonna.

"I love Elton, but when he launched into Madonna I slightly went into shock because Madonna also is a friend of mine," Molly Meldrum told Ross and John. "But I have to say that she has been very naughty of late."

Peter Ford said Molly Meldrum had a good enough relationship with Elton John to not do the wrong thing by him.

  1. Elton John is not sober. He's REGULARLY seen being carried out of London restaurants at lunch. He's a complete fraud.

  2. Elton is and has been one of my heros in life. I am sorry to hear about such discord between he and Madonna but, I guess, he knows her better than I do. Perhaps they'll eventually make nice to one another.

  4. Regardless of whether his assessment of Madonna's talent is correct or not, when he uses such degrading language to describe her, he just sounds bitter. It's hard for me to accept his assessment as credible.

  7. Elton John is jealous that Madonna is still selling records and is selling out stadiums. When Elton played here in Seattle, the theater was half empty and several tickets had to be given away. He has turned into one repulsive individual.

  8. @JOSH I was there. Madonna barely knew Andy Warhol, if at all. She was much closer to Keith Haring. Slept on his couch for awhile, in fact, when she didn't have any place else to stay. I don't know what the hell you mean about "your generation", but whatever generation you're a part of, it's a damned clueless one.

  9. What does Elton John do anymore, besides producing saccharine elevator music, and palling around with Rush Limbaugh?

  10. Elton is just a tired, old, bitter and jealous queen who still hasn't gotten over losing the Oscar to Madonna this past year.
    Someone needs to tell to remind him that his career has been long over who is no longer relevant.
    He's the fat Cu#t!!!
    A fat repulsive TROLL!!!!

  11. "On" or "Off" the record, the comment just shows that the "Sir" is still just a low class entertainer.
