How does that foot taste, Elton John? If you’ve been wondering why Sir Elt looked so sour-faced at the Golden Globe Awards when the camera panned to him during Madonna’s Best Original Song acceptance speech, one need only watch the following red carpet interview Carson Daly did with the rock legend. “Madonna hasn’t got a f***ing chance,” said John, who’s Gnomeo & Juliet offering “Hello Hello” was also nominated. Carson noted those were fighting words. “No,” said Elton. “They’re accurate words.” Oops! Watch below.
After Elton left, Madonna was then interviewed by Carson, who couldn’t help informing the Material Girl what John had said about her. “Oh, damn him!” she joked, while stomping her foot. “Those are fightin’ words… okay, well, may the best man win.”

What did you think of Elton’s comments on Madge? Was it all in jest, or were they mean-spirited barbs meant to keep their supposed long-standing feud going?
Either way, Madonna’s “Masterpiece” still won. Sorry, Elt.
