Elton John Wishes Madonna Well With "Lip-Syncing" Her Super Bowl Performance!

| Filed under: TV NewsMadonnaZportzMariah CareyElton JohnMelanie Amaro


Whoa! Fighting words! Whatever the beef is between these two, it runs deeeeep.

Following his notable disdain for the Queen of Pop at the Golden Globes this past month, Elton John took another jab at Madonna during a recent interview with ABC's Chris Connelly. Elton will also be a part of the big sports day festivities, starring in a commercial alongside X Factor winner Melanie Amaro, but the advice he had to share wasn't for the verging new artist — it was for Madge and her half-time show.

When asked what he would say to her before her performance, he replied:

"Make sure you lip-sync good."

Well. Make sure you lip-sync well. Oh! Why can't the English teach their children how to speak?

Also, why is Elton John in this Pepsi commercial with Melanie and not Mariah Carey? That's her IDOL! MC was her inspiration! No offense to John, but that was the moment we were looking for.

And also - WTF?! Elton, what exactly is your problem with Madonna. Spell it out for us so we can completely understand. Because we're not seeing where all this haterade came from and it has us concerned.

  1. 1

    Perez' site is trying to give someone tips on proper English??? Oh, the irony!!

  2. 2

    Nothing nastier than an old queen,
    except a nasty old queen with a cold

  3. 3

    Elton just sounds so bitter!! Grow up Elton!!

  4. 4

    bitter OLD queen he is

  5. 5

    Isn't it obvious? Elton John is hurling insults at Madonna because she dissed his beloved Lady Gaga. Elton is just being a friend, in that sense. Do you think Elton John takes Madonna's "reductive" analysis of Lady Gaga's Born This Way, lightly? Hardly. And rightfully so. Madonna appears nothing short of snide, and threatened.

  6. 6

    When one old queen disses another old queen, everybody loses.

  7. 7

    Perez, you used to be just as catty and unbiased when it came to Madonna, even posting unflattering stories about her. Now that she's got you payrolled, you've been doing nothing but kissing ass with these constant updates on her. You're no better than Elton.

  8. 8

    he is ridiculous. sweety if u dont like madonna why are u always on her shows?ah elton??? ur desperate for attention… talk talk she doesnt care. shes the queen dear. and madonna doesnt lyp sing. she doesnt have the most eprfect voice but she dopesnt lyp sing. i went to many M shows. ok. so shut up jealosy kills

  9. 9

    Isn't he your DaDa anymore?? Now all you have are bad things to say? You run so hot and cold on people so quickly it's not surprising how despised you are

  10. 10

    elton ur a jealous cow.get a life dear all the legends are saying nice words to madonna …fro celine to janet to louper…ur such an asshole. go get depressed elton cause madonan works and works harder than u … u drama queen

  11. 11

    Madonna is a nasty old bitch who today would be disgusted by 1980's Madonna. She can direct her movies and bitch about having to write a song that wins a award. she is also bitter that the song won and the movie didn't.

  12. 12

    You criticize his English then use a word like haterade? Fuck off.

  13. 13

    I'd love to know whats going on between these two.. :)

  14. 14

    I think more people will be talking about the David Beckham underwear ad,which is very hot
    than about Madonna

  15. 15

    You would get an 'F' in debate class. LOL. Seriously Perez.

  16. 16

    Re: Loady Smurf – Lmfao good one

  17. 17

    Hahaha elton does have a point. I'm pretty sure madonna will be lip-syncing, which is so old already.

  18. 18

    of course she will lip-sync her bullshit "performance" egotistical bitch. everyone at the SB should throw hydrangias at her fugly old ASS

  19. 19

    Because no one really likes madonna anymore. I've tried, but i'm just done with her.

  20. GIO says – reply to this



  21. 21

    What a jealous old Queen! So what if she lip snyc she will be moving around giving us a great show! Elton would be sitting his fat ass down not moving at thing!

  22. 22

    He's being so juvenile. He's lost all of my respect. I don't like him at all anymore. He's acting like a 12 year old girl.

  23. 23

    well elton is the better artist because he is good visually and musically madonna is a visual artist, and can't sing

  24. 24

    Elton is a nasty, ill-tempered man. He treats people like crap (I know this for a fact) and just gets more unpleasant with age. Sounds like he's jealous that she won an award and has things going on for her and he doesn't. For the record, for the last 15 years (probably more) pretty much every performance at the Super Bowl has featured lip-syncing entertainers. There are too many things that could go wrong and they're not going to risk that happening live on the air, at an event so big.

  25. 25

    Please, sit DOWN! Mario, you are the last person on the planet who should be allowed to criticize others for spelling or grammar mistakes. The majority of your posts are plagued with such errors giving your readers the impression that your education ended after you completed the first grade.

  26. 26

    Elton should not lower himself to petty insults and Madonna doesn't care (about anything) so he is wasting his time and making himself look bad. He is a legend and so is she…so it is a waste of time.

  27. 27

    Madonna is like an aging cheerleader with a LOT of attitude. Singing live has NEVER been her forte. Trouble is I don't even like her DANCING anymore. I guess she is trying to be a DIGNIFIED aging cheerleader and that is much more difficult than it sounds. Elton John has a great point and it makes me think the half time show would have been better with some LIVE performances by him and other GREAT LIVE singers since after all the SUPER BOWL is as live as it gets!

  28. 28

    Madonna has made it through the years and she is an icon. Whatever people could say about her, she has entered the glory hall of fame, so stick and stones can break her bones but words may never hurt her. I hope we get to see more of her.

  29. 29

    Lord I hope so also. She sings horribly. Plus she's really OLD.

  30. 30

    elton John is a bitter old man. He's gross.

  31. 31

    Re: raypearson – Ok grandpa!

  32. 32

    Elton John is just a jealous old fart. Madonna is still releavent and awesome! I can't wait for her new album!

  33. 33

    Elton wishes he was Madonna…its so sad to see such a transparent bitter old queen…

  34. 34

    Elton is an asshole. It hasn't even happened yet and already criticizing. Madonna has never kissed his ass so he's jealous of her. Besides why didn't he criticize Michael Jackson, Janey, Britney Spears, Usher or Justin Timberlake for lip syncing in the past Superbowls? They all did

  35. 35

    Elton…. just shut up, is that hard??? You are ugly, fat, and jealous. and BORING. Focus on your own life and leave the dish-Madonna-topic.

  36. 36

    Elton John starts sh*t with a lot of people. I wonder what's up his arse

  37. 37

    When did Elton become such a diva. It disappoints me when I find out that artist I like are such jerks.

  38. 38

    He's such a bitter old fart.
    And he is a whore - he would do the Super bowl at a heart beat if he ever gets invited.
    Sorry, Elton, it's hard to believe you have any integrity regarding what kind of gigs you play, especially after selling his soul to the devil and playing at Rush Limbaugh's wedding for a couple of million dollars.
    Oh, gee! Who am I kidding? We are talking about Elton John, the guy that, in the 80s, when aids was a real tragedy to the gay community, he married a WOMAN to avoid any association with being gay, or Aids just to save his career, while Madonna was the face and the voice of HVI/Aids activists, working to raise awareness about it.
    Keep trolling, Elton. LOL

  39. 39

    I laughed so hard when I read this!!! Too funny and i just KNOW perez is NOT grammar checking!!! Check yourself before you check someone else!

  40. 40

    Whatever! Elton isn't starting shit. He was asked a question, both at the Golden Globes and here, and he answered it, just like Madonna was "asked" what she thought about Lady GaGa. So what if he doesn't mince words.
    Re: Chloe Canacalon
    That's not entirely true. Elton appeared on the AIDS charity single, "That's What Friends Are For" back in '85, long before any celebrity was doing anything about AIDS, as well as championing for Ryan White, who was ostracized for having AIDS in the late 80s, as well as Freddie Mercury.

  41. 41

    You may want to make sure you type your words correctly before you start hurling stones from your glass house.

  42. 42

    DisDAIN, Perez. My God!

  43. 43

    i'll tell what his/her problem is!! elton craves having a vagina!! he want's to BE madonna. it's almost silence of lambs creepy. and elton's face…geeeeeeez!! or, maybe he's just upset that madonna couldn't care less?! lollllllllllllllllllllll :-)

  44. 44

    Re: raypearson – fugly old ass…hmmmm….please stop talking yourself like that old man!! now go and squeeze one out of that pimple dick of yours!! lolllllllllllll #sad

  45. 45

    Re: VirginGirl – YES!! WTF is wrong with him and his WIFE david -the deformed cocked-furnish?!

  46. 46

    Elton John is trying to be in the spot light thru gossip now since he doesn't have any hits for a big number of years !

  47. 47

    Elton John is just bitter cause he'll never be a "real" Queen.

  48. 48

    Elton John is so jealous of Madonna. He's in his 60s yet acts like a 5 year old. Just shut up Elton stop making a fool of yourself.

  49. rory! says – reply to this


    HEY don't lump the rest of the English in with him!

  50. 50

    i think elton john knows madonna better than perez or most of the people here….

  51. 51

    ofcourse the hag will lip-sync, she got the most horrrible voice on earth yuk

  52. 52

    Re: blehbleh – They travel in the same circle, and HagDonna likely made some mean comments about him. Meanwhile, she is becoming a plastic surgery FREAK, and her daughter is one of the biggest little WHORES on the plantet !

  53. 53

    Yep, Perez is getting paid by Madonna. What is this, like the 50th post about her in the last 24 hours? Part of that stipulation must be that he can't mention anything about his former employer, Lady GaGa, while he's promoting Madonna, because he hasn't posted about her in weeks.

  54. 54

    Elton is just BITTER and OLLLLLD. She's jealous because Madonna got asked to do the Superbowl and she did not. I am so over his behaviour. What a sod!

  55. 55

    Jealous much Elton?

  56. @v@ says – reply to this


    He ought to stop sniping at Madonna in public and instead get his ass on to a treadmill.

  57. 57

    What a trashy man. He needs to grow balls, not nails.

  58. 58

    Part A: She talks shit about Gaga saying BTW is reductive of express yourself. I am of this generation so I wasn't familiar with Express yourself until looking it up. I can see where inspiration was pulled form and fresh air was breathed into it. That's they way of the future though isn't it? Pulling from previous pop culture to make a shortcut so you can quickly address the newness in your rhetoric. For gaga, everything Express Yourself was intended to mean and all it inspired from conception to present day, is what listeners, especially older generations, should think of, then carry those thoughts into the new era. Express yourself was an anthem that blared in gay clubs for years, I'm sure. Gaga is just saying keep feeling how you felt then, express, but know times are different we were born this way and therefore deserve every right everyone else does.

  59. 59

    Part B: Madge should be flattered that Gaga looks up to her. Elton shouldn't be so bitchy, but he is just sticking up for his friend. I feel bad for Gaga because you can tell Madonna is a large inspiration to her, before the Fame and now, but to have one of your icons diss you, I'm sure it hurts to have to make a monster out of someone who pushed you to get to where you are… to have the perfect image of Madonna in her head become so heartbreakingly human. Now for Madonna, she is a bitch and very ungrateful. Compare Gaga to Madonna, Gaga loves her fans, sings like no one else, creates and embodies the drama that Madonna is known for. Gaga is Madonna 2.0.. finally all the kinks are worked out. I'm sure it sucks to build a career and have someone do it better than you in a couple of years, but I really don't have any respect for Madonna. Elton better be happy that he is sided with Gaga because as legendary as he is, she is carrying him when it comes to relevance now. Also, why are you on Madonna's side? I think it is awesome people pay you for an opinion, but maybe don't make it as obvious especially when you love Gaga and she is being disrespected by this old, zombie armed bitch.

    Re: jusmatt – Oh shut the fuck up!! Uncover your damn eyes bitch gaga is becoming irrelevant no one even talks about her fake ass anymore!!

  61. @v@ says – reply to this


    Re: jusmatt – Gaga has a few hits in a couple years. Madonna has a 30+ year career with worldwide record multi tune sales over decades along with how many sold out world tours? Two or three+ decades and we'll see where Gaga sits.

  62. 62


  63. 63

    Perez, how are you able to comment on someone's use of English when yours is sometimes damn right atrocious?! Us Brits have something called slang. Just because we say something, doesn't mean we would write it. Good on Elton for taking on someone who is clearly so stuck up. Did you see her on Graham Norton?

  64. 64

    Re: jusmatt

    Lol…oh honey…your post shows how mental u-is. Yes, lady Caca loves you…lol.

  67. mm18 says – reply to this


    While he could probably tone down the cattiness, I see his point. I think he is frustrated that people like Madonna become so popular when they aren't truly musicians. Artists with real talent don't need to lip sync.

  68. 68

    if this is all over lady gaga cmonnnnn elton gaga is a hack i cant beleive a man of his calibre would consider gaga at all i think this is all perezs fault if u trace it back for sticking gaga on his site at all and making the copycat relevant at all.. her voice isnt all that .. LEAVE MADONNA ALONE LET GAGA FIGHT HER OWN BATTLES .. that said i laugh my ass out at this lip sync well lolololololol god hes a old bitch HHAHAHAHA

  69. 69

    Lol Perez making fun of people's english..holyshit the hypocrisy.. ahh but anyways.. what is with Elton? Does he and his little bitchy boyfriend, husband whatever, like coming off as sore losers? It is pathetic seeing a grown man act so childish..saying all these snide remarks.. He is only making Madonna look better. Never thought she would be the one handling it with grace..pathetic

    ugh . . .

  71. bcb says – reply to this


    Bitter, old , out of shape queen.. thats where the hatred comes from.. Madonna looks like she could be his daughter, has the super bowl gig, and is in great shape.. elton is a bitter queen.. madonna is the real queen

  72. bcb says – reply to this


    Why does everyone accuse madonna of lip syncing? Ive seen her live and she sings for real.. even on blonde ambition when she had throat problems she sang, her vocals live are far from perfect so this topic shouldnt even be debated when its obvious she sings live.. Elton needs to take a big shit so he can stop looking and acting so constimpated

  73. @v@ says – reply to this


    Does Elton feel safe picking on a woman? Let's see him go after a top male artist. Not likely to happen. Kid Rock or someone would, lets say, tune him in.

  74. 74

    Re: SlaveMeh – Well Gaga is taking a break because she's been overexposed. Good on her. She's working on her next album already FYI.

    Love Elton ““““““` but he's “ just jealous!
    Get off the high horse ““` bitch

  86. 86

    I saw Elton in concert over 7 years ago. He played the piano.. bowed stage right , bowed stage left and went back to sit at his piano. This was the entire concert. I never said anything bad about him because I used to think of him as Pop Royalty. I still enjoy his classic songs but will no longer listen to anything he has to sing about or go to his shows. He shows no class with his comments. ZERO CLASS

  87. 87

    This fat cow is just jealous because one he wishes he was a woman, and two because he wishes he was getting the attention and hype Madonna is getting. It's really sad that he has to mention Madonna make the Headline news really really sad and PATHETIC!

  88. 88

    Old people fight…

  89. 89

    real musicians know Madonna is like the wizard of oz - a complete false creation of modern technology. he's on point.

  90. 90

    What's wrong Elton? Pressed b/c Madonna's going to the superbowl and you still haven't got invite? :( ((

  91. 91

    I respect Elton as a musician but he is a real asshole and he's making himself look real bitter right now. If he thinks Madonna is losing any sleep over his childish statements he really is delusional. Madonna is taking the high road, this shit doesn't bother her one bit; she's on top and she knows it while Elton on the other hand - well, the only time I hear about him is when he's trashing Madonna. xD

    Some of Elton's music is simply amazing. Your Song, Funeral for a Friend, Lion King, I could go on. He needs to get back to composing, methinks. Put away the purses at dawn and write the premiere Elton album, and let Madonna be the terrific entertainer that she is.

  95. 95

    You all know damn well that people like Janet Jackson, who are wishing Madonna well, secretly wish Madonna would fall on her ass in front of 50 million people worldwide. She may be cordial and polite in not saying what she really thinks, but it's still lying. I appreciate Elton's candor–fuck this politeness and respect shit. I wish more celebrities would be more truthful in their opinions rather hide behind all this schmoozing crap.
