Madonna is in a "forgiving" state of mind
The two have been feuding for years, with John recently calling the "Queen of Pop" a "fairground stripper." And if that wasn't enough, he said the pop star's career was over.
Madge has been keeping mum on the subject, but that changed Tuesday during her concert in Nice, France. Prior to performing the "W.E." soundtrack song, "Masterpiece," Madonna told the crowd, "I'd like to dedicate this next song to a Mr. Elton John."
It was an interesting "dedication" seeing as how "Masterpiece" won the 2012 Golden Globe for best original song, beating out John's "Hello Hello" from "Gnomeo & Juliet."
"I know he's a big fan of it," Madonna added about "Masterpiece." "And I know he's a big fan of mine. And you know? I forgive him. Gotta start somewhere."
We're sensing a sarcastic tone here on some level, especially in light of John's remarks at the Golden Globe Awards in January. Prior to the ceremony, the "Rocket Man" singer said Madonna had no chance of winning with "Masterpiece," and after she walked away with the honor, John's partner David Furnish lashed out about both Madge's win and acceptance speech in an online rant.
So did Madonna really forgive John? It's hard to say, but perhaps she's in a "forgiving" state of mind.
Throughout her "MDNA" tour this year, the pop star has featured a video of Marine Le Pen, the president of France's far-right political party the National Front -- with a superimposed swastika on her head. At Tuesday's concert, the swastika had been replaced with a question mark, reports The Guardian.
