The Elton John / Madonna Beef Heats Up: Elton's Husband Ranted About Madonna's "Golden Globe" Win on Facebook


has had an eventful 2012 so far.  First, she took a few shots at LADY GAGA, and now, her on and off beef with ELTON JOHN and his husband DAVID FURNISH is heating up again.  David unleashed a rant on Facebook after Madonna beat Elton in the Best Original Song category at the "Golden Globes" on Sunday night.

He wrote, "Madonna.  Best song????  [Eff] off!!!"

And after Madonna's acceptance speech, David added, "Madonna winning Best Original Song truly shows how these awards have nothing to do with merit.  Her acceptance speech was embarrassing in its narcissism.  And her criticism of Gaga shows how desperate she really is." 

Here's video of her acceptance speech.  Elton's reaction is shown at the 1:06 mark.  He looks unimpressed.


David has since removed the posts, but there's a screen-capture of them at  By the way, David was AT the "Golden Globes" when he wrote the posts.

Elton and Lady Gaga are good friends, but Madonna and Elton have had a much rockier relationship.  Before the show, Elton told CARSON DALY on the red carpet that he didn't think Madonna had, "any [effing] chance" of beating him.  When Carson said "those are fighting words," Elton responded, "They're accurate words."  But of course, she did end up winning.

And in a backstage interview after the fact, Madonna said she hoped Elton wasn't upset.  She said, "I hope he speaks to me for the next couple of years.  He's been known to get mad at me so I don't know.  He's brilliant and I adore him so he'll win another award.  I don't feel bad!"

Here's video of Elton and David from the red carpet.  The dis happens 50 seconds in.  Carson's interview with Madonna follows.  Elton said he believed MARY J. BLIGE would win the category for her song from "The Help".)


By the way, the original source of the Elton / Madonna feud is unclear, but back in 2004, Elton slammed Madonna at Britain's Q Awards.  He made fun of her for lip-synching at her shows after she won a Best Live Act award.

Meanwhile, Madonna almost ticked off someone else at the "Golden Globes":  JESSICA BIEL.  Madonna accidentally stepped on Jessica's dress.  Here are some pictures.  But it's all good.  You can see that Jessica is smiling.  (TMZ)
