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?
