Elton John recently referred to Madonna as a "f--king fairground stripper," adding that the Material Girl's career was as good as over and labeling her a certain C-word.

Those comments followed John's husband, David Furnish, also having some harsh words for the legendary artist. So, how has the notoriously combative Madonna responded?

With an attempt at reconciliation. During a concert in France last night, the singer dedicated the song "Masterpiece" to John, saying: "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."

Elton John has fired yet another salvo in his strange, ongoing feud with Madonna, slamming the recent antics of the "f--king fairground stripper."

Whoa.

During an interview with Australian TV show, John bristled at the mere mention of the singer, saying, "She's such a nightmare. Her career's over."

He didn't stop there, ranting that "she looks like a f--king fairground stripper" and ripping her recent gun-pulling stunt and dance-pop catalog.

"If Madonna had any common sense she would have made another record like Ray of Light," he added, "and stayed away from the dance stuff."

The 65-year-old John said that the Queen of Pop should "just be a great pop singer and make great pop records, which she does brilliantly."

John's beef, or at least the latest iteration of it, may stem from her quasi-feud with Lady Gaga, godmother to Elton's 19-month-old son, Zachary.

"[Madonna's] been so horrible to Gaga," John told Sunday Night.

In May, Madonna performed a curious mash-up of "Born This Way" and "Express Yourself" that many saw as a Lady Gaga diss, not a tribute.

John's feud with Madge goes back to 2004, when he accused her of lip-syncing, a point he reiterated earlier this year before the Super Bowl.

Elton's husband, David Furnish, has also gone off on Madonna.

First, Ray J. Now, Elton John. Is no legendary singer safe?!?

The multiple-time Emmy Award winner was hospitalized yesterday with a "serious respiratory infection," according to his official website. As a result, John has been forced to cancel the remaining performances of "The Million Dollar Piano," his ongoing Las Vegas show.

Following various tests at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, John was told by physicians to take a week of rest and antibiotics to "cure his respiratory infection and prevent any damage," the statement reads.

"It feels strange not to be able to perform these 'Million Dollar Piano' concerts at the Colosseum," John himself says. "I love performing this show and I will be thrilled when we return. All I can say to the fans is sorry I can't be with you."

Elton will come back to Sin City in October, but departs on June 1 for a summer tour in Europe.

Elton John has fired up the quasi-dispute between himself and Madonna once again, thanks to his latest "advice" about her Super Bowl performance.

Just when we thought his husband, David Furnish, had washed his hands of the feud (albeit with a non-apology), Elton spoke about Madonna today.

Speaking to Good Morning America from the set of his own Super Bowl Pepsi commercial, John weighed in on the halftime show Madge is headlining.

"I've never seen a decent one," he said. "Never ever."

This started when Furnish tore into Madonna, calling her a narcissistic embarrassment after she won the Golden Globe for Best Original Song (over Elton).

So does Elton have any advice for Madonna Sunday, to add to those preemptively harsh words? Does he ever. "Make sure you lip-sync good," he said.

Ouch! John softened that part a bit, though:

"I don't think you can (play live). 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 even adds of some of the last few performers: "To be honest with you, I saw the Stones and I saw Prince and I thought they were pretty good."

We'll see if he says the same of Madonna come Monday.

Elton John's husband David Furnish is PISSED that "Masterpiece" singer Madonna was among 2012's Golden Globe Award winners with the Best Original Song.

Furnish called Madonna's acceptance speech "embarrassing in its narcissism."

Just moments after she won the statue, Furnish went to his Facebook page and WENT OFF on the Material Girl, writing, "Madonna. Best song???? F**k off!!!"

Elton John, who was nominated for a song from Gnomeo & Juliet, did not look happy when Madonna's name was announced, but he has not commented.

Furnish, however, did not hold back in letting Madonna, who won for a song from W.E., have it, referencing her recent quasi-feud with another singer.

"Madonna winning Best Original Song truly shows these awards have nothing to do with merit," he said. "Her acceptance speech was embarrassing in it's narcissism. And her criticism of Gaga shows how desperate she really is."

In related news, Madonna's cleavage was off the hook last night.

His songs were covered on American Idol this week. He's hosting Saturday Night Live tomorrow. And now Elton John is jumping into the fray of another pop culture debate.

In an interview with Jimmy Fallon last night, the veteran artist was asked about Kings of Leon and Dave Grohl, musicians that have lashed out at Glee creator Ryan Murphy for asking if his show could cover their singles.

"When someone wants to do your song, it’s a compliment," John said, getting pointed in his criticism of Kings of Leon: "Lighten up, you assholes... I mean, this is a compliment. Also, it sends a positive message out. What the hell is wrong with you guys?”

Watch the exchange below.

Elton John wants Billy Joel to make like Charlie Sheen. Sort of.

In the latest issue of Rolling Stone, John talks at length about his fellow music icon, who has battled alcohol dependency for years.

"Billy's a conundrum," Elton says. "We've had so many cancelled tours because of illnesses and various other things, alcoholism."

But hasn't Joel sought help for substance abuse issues in the past? Yes, John says, but not the right kind of help:

"He's going to hate me for this, but every time he goes to rehab they've been light. When I went to rehab, I had to clean the floors. He goes to rehab where they have TVs. I love you, Billy, and this is tough love. You have your demons and you're not going to get rid of them at rehab light. You've got to be serious. People adore you, they love you and respect you. You should be able to do something better than what you're doing now."

Joel doesn't seem too fazed by Elton's remarks. He responds:

That's a mouthful, to be sure, but it's a fitting title for the son of Sir Elton John and David Furnish, who welcomed baby Zachary on Christmas Day.

"The feeling, the joy, the warmth of his body, his breathing," the singer continued. "I will never forget that experience ever."

Adds his longtime partner, film producer Furnish: "He's a content little guy... He just loves to be nurtured, cuddled, and sung to."

Elton John was approached about being a judge on American Idol, but turned down the offer for one very good reason: he hates the show!

"I'm not a fan of talent shows... I couldn't do it because I won't slag anyone off," the singer told UK's The Daily Mail. "There have been some good acts, but the only way to sustain a career is to pay your dues in small, s**t clubs."

Never one to shy away from an opinion, John added "contemporary pop isn't very inspiring" and said it's important for artists to write their own material.

Among singers he likes?

"Lily Allen is incredibly talented and can do anything she wants – act, sing, write. I'm also a huge fan of Lady Gaga. And I adore Amy Winehouse."
