Who would have thought that these two musical legends could ever be caught in a nasty feud. Well when it comes to Elton John, he simply couldn’t pump his brakes when it comes to this one.
Being the outspoken musician that he is, in a new Rolling Stone interview, he takes aim at Janet Jackson about her world tour, which is for her eleventh album Unbreakable. He said “You know, f–king music magazines writing a review of Janet Jackson saying, ‘This is the greatest show—four and a half stars.’ It’s f–king lip-synced! Hello! That’s not a show!” John, 68, says. “I’d rather go and see a drag queen. F–k off.”
Janet Jackson has not yet responded to his allegation, but Elton John is not a stranger to such allegations given his last feud with Madonna, which lasted almost 11 years when he decided to call Madonna out while on stage at the Q Awards saying “Madonna, best live act? F–k off,” he told the audience. “Since when has lip-syncing been live? Sorry about that, but I think everyone who lip-syncs on stage in public when you pay like 75 quid to see them should be shot. Thank you very much. That’s me off her Christmas card list, but do I give a toss? No.”
Let’s see how long his feud will last this time around, with Janet Jackson.
