Elton John attacks Madonna 'Your career is over'

The Rocket Man hitmaker blasted the 53-year-old singer after claiming she was "horrible" to Lady GaGa - who is godmother to Elton and his husband David Furnish's 19-month-old son Zachary - and says the singer has no right to criticize other artists because her "career is over" and her recent 'MDNA' tour has been a flop.

Speaking on Australian news and current affairs programme Sunday Night, Elton said: 'She's 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 f***ing fairground stripper. She's been so horrible to Gaga.'

Madonna - who has sported a number of flash-flashing outfits throughout her tour - has criticised GaGa on a number of occasions and recently hit out at her after the 26-year-old pop star's single Born This Way had many similarities to her own 1989 hit Express Yourself.

She said: "I thought, 'What a wonderful way to redo my song.' I mean, I recognised the chord changes. I thought it was ... interesting."
