Elton John has officially mellowed. The famously, temperamental Brit legend has ended his public feud with Madonna.
Elton’s long-standing face-off with the ‘material mother’ originally blew up over his dismissal of her 2012 MDNA tour as a “disaster” and taunts about her being a “fairground stripper.”
Reportedly, the “Candle in the Wind” singer also took offence at Madonna’s less than complimentary remarks about Lady Gaga’s music, whom he considers a personal friend.
Now, however, John says that he and Madonna have moved on, even if they didn’t exactly ‘hug it out.’
“We were in a restaurant in France in the summertime. She came in, and I sent over a note. She was very gracious. I apologized profusely because what I said should never have appeared in public,” John explained.
“She accepted our apology, and then we bought her dinner. That’s over and done with.”
In other Elton news, it’s been revealed that the singer and his husband, David Furnish, have asked Lady Gaga to be a godmother to their second son Elijah, who was born via a surrogate in January this year.
Gaga is already a godmother to the couple’s first child, the now two-year-old Zachary, and it seems they were so impressed that they popped the question a second time.
“She’s a great role model, she’s young, [and] she’s been a great godmother to Zachary,” John told Extra. “We’re all bonkers in this business, but we’re human beings at the same time.”
In the same interview Furnish added: “You learn so much about yourself and about life by seeing children.”
John also spoke of his love for fatherhood. “I love getting up in the morning and having breakfast with Zachary.”
“Everything I thought I would find annoying about having children, like screaming and shouting and tantrums… I don’t find any of it annoying. I find it all enchanting.”
