Elton John and David Furnish

With any good feud comes the inevitable sorta-apology, wherein one or both parties backtrack on what they said, offer a compliment, but never actually go full apology. It’s a system people, stick with it. Anyway, a few days after David Furnish went Facebook nuclear on Madonna over her super weird, up-her-own-ass acceptance speech at the Golden Globes, David easing up a little, saying that Madonna is a talented artist and he was just sticking up for his husband, Elton John. CTV reports:

The Canadian filmmaker had blasted the singer’s win at last weekend’s Golden Globe awards — where she beat David’s husband Sir Elton John to win Best Song for her W.E. track Masterpiece — but now insists his furious comments have been blown out of proportion. Describing the row as a “tempest in a teapot,” he wrote on his Facebook page: “My comments regarding The Golden Globes have been blown way out of proportion. My passion for our film Gnomeo & Juliet and belief in Elton’s song really got my emotional juices going. But I must say for the record that I do believe Madonna is a great artist.”

Well of course she’s a great artist, we’re not arguing that … unless you mean if she’s a great director. In which case, that one’s still up for debate. My point is, I think most people are probably focusing on how her acceptance speech was basically about how she more or less said “this whole ‘song’ thing was really just an afterthought. Also, I’m British now. Suck it, haters!”
