Madonna dedicates a song to "big fan" Elton

Could Madonna and Elton John's decade of trading spats be coming to an end? Supposedly looking to bury the hatchet, Madonna made a special dedication to the singer at her concert in France, calling him a "big fan" of hers -- but there's more to the story.

Madonna dedicates a song to "big fan" Elton

On the surface, Madonna was an uncharacteristically nice girl at her Tuesday concert in Nice, France, dedicating a song to celebrity feud all-star Elton John. But is there more to the story than meets the eye?

"I forgive him," Madonna told the crowd while speaking of Elton John, who called her a "f***ing fairground stripper" just two weeks ago.

Dedicating the song "Masterpiece" to the 65-year-old singer, the Material Girl continued,
"I know he's a big fan of it. And I know he's a big fan of mine. And you know what? I forgive him. Gotta start somewhere."

The trouble is, not only do Elton John and Madonna have a habit of trading insults, there's a specific history with that particular song!

You see, Madonna's "Masterpiece" from the film W.E. went up against Elton John's "Hello Hello" from Gnomeo & Juliet for a Golden Globe. When asked what the odds were of the songstress coming out on top before the ceremony, Elton John quipped on the red carpet, "Madonna hasn't got a f**king chance [of winning]... those are accurate words."

He couldn't have been more wrong.

"Madonna winning Best Original Song truly shows how these awards have nothing to do with merit," Elton John's partner, David Furnish, wrote on his Facebook page after she pulled out the win. "Her acceptance speech was embarrassing in its narcissism. And her criticism of Gaga shows how desperate she really is."
