Elton John In Concert

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Elton John made some pretty shocking remarks.

Although Elton is known for his no-holds-bar attitude, no one expected him to express his feelings so brashly.

During the interview, Elton expounded on his age-old beef with pop icon Madonna, saying, “I say what I feel. I probably went too far with Madonna, and I got very personal and I wrote her – she was very gracious.

Then, in a surprising plot twist the singer turned his target onto Janet Jackson. Elton, 68, fired shots at Janet for allegedly lip-syncing during her Unbreakable World Tour.

He said, “You know, fu*kng music magazines writing a review of Janet Jackson saying, ‘This is the greatest show – four and a half stars’,” he continued. “If it’s fu*king lip-synced! Hello! That’s not a show! I’d rather go and see a drag queen. Fu*k off.” 

It has not been confirmed if Janet Jackson is indeed lip-syncing during her concerts, but Elton John held nothing back in his comments regarding her tour performance.

At least we now know how the star feels about artists who lip-sync.
