Elton John Throws Shade At Janet Jackson During Rolling Stone Interview


Sir Elton John is at it again. He loves throwing shade at a diva’s expense.

A decade ago, the “Tiny Dancer” singer got in a heated feud with Madonna after ripping her for lip-syncing in concert. Eventually, they made up and nowadays, he’s a tad remorseful.

“I say what I feel,” says Elton to Rolling Stone. “I probably went too far with Madonna, and I got very personal and I wrote her – she was very gracious.”

The 69-year-old divo then goes on to criticize Janet Jackson. Read what he has to say about the “Nasty” singer below.

“You know, fucking music magazines writing a review of Janet Jackson saying, ‘This is the greatest show – four and a half stars.’ It’s fucking lip-synced! Hello! That’s not a show! I’d rather go and see a drag queen. Fuck off.”

I love them both, so I’m not picking a side. Though, I see where he’s coming from. With that being said, I watch artists like Britney, J Lo and Jackson for their showmanship and not for their vocal prowess. If Mariah or Celine lip synced during a show that I shelled out cash for, I’d be annoyed. Do you agree? Weigh in below. Team Janet or Team Elton?

Read the rest of his Rolling Stone interview here. He also has a couple things to say about Billy Idol. God bless Elton 😉

    Team Janet!! Elton you don’t dance (and probably can’t either). That’s why you need to sing LIVE to get people’s money’s worth!! Get lost you has been! Stop being so INSECURE!!!

    I’m of the old adage, if you don’t have anything nice to say…having said that, I do believe Elton has become bitchier in his old age Lol
