Madonna forgives Elton John for ‘fairground stripper’ comment

Madonna has dedicated a song to John, saying she forgives the 65-year-old British star for his constant insults.

54-year-old Madonna dedicated her song, “Masterpiece” - which won the 2012 Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song earlier this year - to Elton John while performing in the French city of Nice on Tuesday. According to US Magazine, the celebrated singer went on to say that they had to "start somewhere" to end their cold war.

"I know he's a big fan of it. And I know he's a big fan of mine. And you know? I forgive him. Gotta start somewhere,” the award-winning songstress told the crowd, prior to performing the "W.E." soundtrack song.

According to reports, prior to the 2012 Golden Globe Awards ceremony in January, Elton John said Madonna had no chance of winning with "Masterpiece” over his song, “Hello Hello”, from the movie “Gnomeo and Juliet”.

However, after she took home the prestigious award, the “Rocket Man” singer expressed his bitterness over losing to Madonna by trashing her recent MDNA tour. Elton John said, "Why is she such a nightmare? Sorry, her career is over. Her tour has been a disaster and it couldn't happen to a bigger ****.”

"If Madonna had any common sense she would have made a record like 'Ray of Light' and stayed away from the dance stuff and just been a great pop singer and make great pop records, which she does brilliantly. But no, she had to go and prove ... she looks like a. . .fairground stripper," the music legend added.

Moreover, after Elton John had lost the trophy to Madonna, his husband, David Furnish, took to Facebook to slam Madonna's triumph and denounce her acceptance speech.

"Madonna winning Best Original Song truly shows how these awards have nothing to do with merit. Her acceptance speech was embarrassing in its narcissism," Furnish wrote in a post on his Facebook page.

"And her criticism of Gaga shows how desperate she really is,” Furnish said, referring to Madonna's dislike of Lady Gaga, 26, who is godmother to their son, Zachary. "She's amazing. Wherever she is in the world she sends texts saying, 'How is he?' She comes and bathes him and sings to him. She's a good godmother, she really pays attention."
