Elton John's feud with Madonna continues, with John declaring last night that the Material Girl's "career is over." As evidence, he pointed out that "her tour has been a disaster," adding, "it couldn't happen to a bigger ****." Appearing on Australian show Sunday Night, John also had harsh words for Madonna's look, comparing her to "a f***ing fairground stripper."

Why so angry? John may have provided a clue; he accused Madonna of being "so horrible" to Lady Gaga, who just so happens to be godmother to John's son, the Daily Mail notes. "She's such a nightmare," he 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."
