Elton John‘s claws are out when it comes to Madonna. He has firmly sided with Lady Gaga in the feud between the two pop divas. Duh.

Gaga is godmother to the Rocket Man’s son Zachary, so of course he’s got her back and is Team Gaga, as opposed to Team Madge. In the process of defending his son’s godmother, of whose praises he sings, he takes a big ol’ slap at Madge. Elton was, in fact, brutal and downright nasty with his diss of Madge.

In a chat with Molly Meldrum, John criticized Madge since she tried to skew too young on ‘MDNA.’ “Her career is over, her tour has been a disaster. It couldn’t happen to a bigger c—-,” John said with venom. Wow! He went there. That’s harsh. Elton John clearly can’t stand the Materal Girl.

Instead, he loves young divas like Katy Perry and Rihanna, but he truly exaulted Gaga, saying, “She’s amazing. Wherever she is in the world, she sends texts seeing how [Zachary] is he, she comes and bathes him, she sings to him. She is a good godmother. She pays attention.” Little Zach is a lucky man, with a godmother who loves him, sings to him and bathes him. Something tells us he is going to grow up and be musically motivated.

But back to his attack on Madge, John said what everyone else is already thinking when it comes to her rude comments about Gaga in the press. “She’s been so horrible to Gaga,” the singer said. “If Madonna had any common sense she would have made a record like ‘Ray of Light’ and stayed away from the dance stuff and just been a great pop singer and make great pop records, which she does brilliantly.”

Okay, so he gave her a kiss before he killed her, verbally speaking, with that comment. He then said she looks like a stripper. Ouch!

Elton, 1. Madge, 0. The insult ball is now in her court and she can respond as she wishes.
