Elton John Accuses Janet Jackson of Lip-Syncing: 'That's Not a Show!'
For Elton John, lip-syncing is one of the highest offenses a touring musician can carry out. His famous feud with Madonna, which ended up being a lot of name-calling on his part, was all about lip-syncing. In his latest interview with Rolling Stone, Elton John has a few more words to say on the matter.
Commenting on his feud with Madonna several years after the fact, John says, "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."
John, who has never really been one to keep his thoughts to himself, decided to shift his focus to Janet Jackson. "You know, f---ing music magazines writing a review of Janet Jackson saying, 'This is the greatest show -- four and a half stars,’" he tells RS. “It's f---ing lip-synced! Hello! That's not a show! I'd rather go and see a drag queen. F--- off."
