Elton John Slams Madonna Again: 'She Can't Sing Live'!

31 January 2012

So where did this beef between Elton John and Madonna come up? One day Madge is safe in her ivory tower, and the next she's copping it from peeps all over the globe!

This week Elton John has taken another swipe at Madonna by suggesting she will "lip sync good" at the Super Bowl this weekend.

During the recent TV interview Elton put pressure on Madonna to sing live during the much-anticipated half-time Superbowl show on Sunday.

When asked if he'll be tuning in to watch the spectacle, Elton candidly told Good Morning America, "Super Bowl is always an event, no matter where you are in the world. It's a great American occasion... I scream at the television."

When asked if he has any advice for Madonna, he added, "Make sure you lip-sync good. Of course you have to play live but I don't think you can."

He tried to back pedal a little bit saying, "In all fairness to everyone who's done it before... I've never seen a decent one (performance)," but we're pretty sure the damage is already done!

Pipe down and play nice Elton John!

You have totally spun this story! While iut's true that he's a little bitter troll, you have deliberately strung together separate lines and changed their implicit meaning. He said "lip synch good" to her, because it is his opinion, as he said in a DIFFERENT part of the interview, that "Of course you have to play live but I don't think you can" - meaning a general "you", as he then went on to explian, not about Madonna as such., It wasn't TO her. Lame. So very tired of this kind of media.
