Meeeeeooooowwwww! The claws are out!
It’s a war of words between David Furnish and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Madonna[/lastfm] after her win for ‘Best Original Song at the Golden Globes on Sunday. Madonna picked up the prize for her song “Masterpiece,” from her film W.E. – beating out[lastfm link_type="artist_info"] Elton John[/lastfm]‘s “Hello Hello” from Gnomeo and Juliet – John’s hubby ‘hit the ‘net’ to voice his …’opinion.’
Rolling Stone reports Furnish wrote: “Madonna. Best song????(expletive)!!! on his Facebook page. He continued in a separate post that also scoffed at the pop star’s moment at the podium: “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.”
Furnish’s support of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lady Gaga[/lastfm] (godmother to his child with John) references comments that Madonna made in several interviews last week, in which she equated the young singer’s “Born This Way” as “reductive” and “an interesting redo of my song,” that being her 1989 hit “Express Yourself.” His sharp words were the couple’s second attack launched at Madonna since Sunday. When questioned before the ceremony about his competition for Best Original Song by interviewer Carson Daly, John replied, “Madonna hasn’t got a (bleeping) chance.”
For her part, Madonna attempted to keep the peace at the Golden Globes, telling reporters backstage, “[I hope Elton] 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.”
That’s kind of like ‘nah, nah!’
