Elton John continues to draw attention to himself for attacking Madonna. He called her all sorts of things, including a fairground stripper. Now, Madonna's friends are fighting back.
"I honestly do not understand his need to trash the crap out of her over and over again. He says she has no authority, but apparently he has authority? He needs to hate on her," a friend of Madonna said.
"To say her tour is a disaster is just silly. She is selling out arenas, singing new material and a few classic hits. He will be singing the same old songs until he dies." "Ultimately, she doesn’t care what he has to say about her in public or
private," one insider tells me. "She has nothing to prove to anyone,
especially Elton John."
Admittedly, this isn't a classic Madonna attack, since it'll usually be Madonna doing the attacking herself. And she probably doesn't care as well because she's got so much money.
According to recent data on Celebritynetworth.com, Elton's is worth $355 million while Madonna is worth more than $650 million as of last year, with an estimated additional $250 million paycheck from the "disastrous" MDNA tour. Yeah, so screw the booings from the crowd, right?
