Elton John says he will apologise over Madonna tirade

Elton John has said he will apologise to Madonna, after launching an expletive-laced attack on the Material Girl for lip-synching on stage.
“Would I apologize to her if I saw her? Yeah, because I don’t want to hurt any artist’s feelings,” Sir Elton said in an interview in the latest edition of Entertainment Weekly magazine.
“It was my fault. I instigated the whole thing,” he said. “But (lip-synching) applies to all those bloody teenage singers.”
Attending an awards ceremony in London earlier this month, Sir Elton was incensed to find that Madonna had been nominated for best live act.
Taking to the stage, Sir Elton blasted: “Madonna – best f live act? F off. Anyone who lip-synchs in public on stage … should be shot.”
In the interview, the pop legend acknowledged that he had spoken out of turn.
“I don’t want to escalate it because I like Madonna,” he said. “She’s been to my house for dinner. It was something that was said in the heat of the moment, and probably should not have been said.”
At the time, Madonna’s US spokeswoman Liz Rosenberg had flatly rejected Sir Elton’s accusations, saying that Madonna neither lip-synched nor spent time “trashing” other artists.
Sir Elton argued that the media reaction to his comments had been out of proportion to their content.
“It was like I said I think all gays should be killed or I think Hitler was right,” he said. “I just said someone was lip-synching.”
