Madonna won an award no one cares about. Except Elton John, because he lost it. So did his husband. On Facebook. Because apparently everyone involved is a 14-year-old girl. The New York Post reports:
Sir Elton John and David Furnish are fuming over Madonna’s Golden Globes win. After John predicted on the red carpet that Madonna had “no [bleep]ing chance of winning,” he was stone-faced when Madge — at her first Globes appearance in 14 years — triumphed for best original song Sunday night. Her tune “Masterpiece,” from “W.E.,” beat John’s “Hello, Hello” from “Gnomeo and Juliet.” After the win, Furnish posted on Facebook: “Madonna. Best song???? [bleep] off!!!” After her acceptance speech Madonna delivered in a bizarre English accent, Furnish told us: “I think it was a fluke . . . When this happens you have to question the integrity of the awards. Did Madonna get the Golden Globe because she attended the awards and agreed be a presenter?” He added, “Can you sing Madonna’s song? Can you hum it? It’s a song nobody has heard, from a film few have seen. The award should have gone to Mary J. Blige or Elton. I like Madonna’s music, but not her movies. She should stick to what she is good at.”
Even the Hollywood Foreign Press Association knows the Golden Globes have nothing to do with merit, so I don’t know why this is so surprising to them. Madonna has an upcoming movie and a new album to promote, so she wins. Elton John should stay home from all award ceremonies until Kate Middleton has enough kids to warrant a carefully orchestrated car crash. Then he might matter enough for people to care again.
