The content from Elton John’s released memory filled with tir, ‘Me,’ has been doing the headlines in recent weeks after his comments about several famous faces.
And Elton John, who’s book was launched last week, did not hold back as he termed Madonna’ nasty and ungracious’ over her comments about Lady Gaga in the past.
Then I’m Still Standing hitmaker, 72, talked about a 2012 ABC News show in which Madonna, 61, said Gaga’s hit Born This Way was ‘bleh’ for sounding remarkably similar to her song Express Yourself.
In his memoir, he said: ‘I used to make fun of [Madonna] resorting to lip-syncing on stage, but the issue broke out when she went on down Gaga down on an American chat show.
‘Okay so I understand that maybe Gaga’s single Born This Way appeared to be similar to Express Yourself, but I do not know why she was so ungracious and nasty about it, rather than seeing it as a compliment, especially when she claims to be a champion for women.’
Having seen success by selling 27 million albums and 146 million singles as of January 2016, Gaga is amongst the world’s best-selling music artists ever.
Her list of achievements includes some nine Grammy Awards, Guinness world records, and many other awards from the Council of Fashion Designers of America and the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
She has been awarded the Billboard’s Artist of the Year and Woman of the Year. She was also included among Forbes’s power and earnings rankings.
She was on the rank number four on VH1’s Greatest Women in Music in 2012 and finished second on Time’s 2011 readers’ poll of the most influential people of the past ten years.
She is known for her charity. Her foundation has helped many suffering people in society, and she is a vocal supporter of LGBTQ rights.
