Another blow from John's camp came for Madonna, who is touted to perform at this year's Super Bowl half-time.
Elton John relight the feud spark that his husband David Furnish created between them and Madonna. In a new interview with "ABC News", the "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" singer passed an advice to Madonna who is signed to Super Bowl half-time performance duty.
"Make sure you lip-sync good," said John. Earlier in the conversation, the 64-year-old was asked whether he would ever perform for the half-time show. "I've never seen a decent one," he replied. "Never ever."
But then he gave a reasonable explanation to his opinion. "Of course you have to play live, but I don't think you can. In all fairness to everyone who's done it before, I think you may be able to sing live, but it's really hard to play live," he said.
John's husband Furnish recently blasted Madonna who won Best Song at the Golden Globes. "Madonna winning Best Original Song truly shows how these awards have nothing to do with merit. Her acceptance speech was embarrassing in its narcissism. And her criticism of [Lady] GaGa shows how desperate she really is," Furnish wrote on his Facebook page. A few days later he apologized, saying his comment was "blown out of proportion".
