(LOS ANGELES) — Madonna and Elton John are making nice. After the Material Girl said she didn’t feel bad for beating out the Rocket Man to win the best original song Golden Globe (a category John thought he had locked down), John’s husband, David Furnish, slammed her online. Now everyone’s calmed down.
Madonna’s “Masterpiece” from her film “W.E.” won best song over John’s “Hello Hello” from Gnomeo & Juliet and Mary J. Blige’s “Living Proof” from The Help.
“Wow! What a tempest in a teapot My comments regarding The Golden Globes have been blown way out of proportion,” Furnish wrote on his Facebook page Thursday.
“Madonna. Best song???? F**k off!!!” Furnish initially wrote on Facebook on Sunday. Backstage, Madonna quipped, “I hope he speaks to me for the next couple of years. He’s been known to get mad at me so I don’t know. He’s brilliant and I adore him so he’ll win another award. I don’t feel bad!”
