From one British queen to another-ish, Elton John, the hydrangea to Madonna's Venus Brazilian Boy Fly Trap, has a bit of advice for his rival's Super Bowl halftime performance. So, what sage sass does Sir Elton pass along to Her Madgesty?
"Make sure you lip-sync good," Elton advised Madonna by way of Good Morning America. "I've never seen a good one," he added, relaying his opinion of the history of halftime performances.
If Elton's lip-sync reference to Madonna sounds familiar, it is; in 2004 he chastised Madge in a Q Magazine interview. “Anyone who lip-syncs in public onstage when you pay 75 pounds ($134) to see them should be shot."
Is Elton's perpetuation of the (largely one-sided) rivalry with his one-time friend doing him any favors?
