Elton John had harsh words for Janet Jackson in a recent Rolling Stone interview. In the same breath as the icon explained he went too far in a lip-sync feud with Madonna in 2004, he opened fire on another touring superstar: Janet. Miss Jackson, that is, if you’re nasty. And Elton did get a bit nasty.
“You know, f—ing music magazines writing a review of Janet Jackson saying, ‘This is the greatest show – four and a half stars,'” he said. “It’s f—ing lip-synced! Hello! That’s not a show! I’d rather go and see a drag queen. F– off.”
Jackson released Unbreakable last year and has sparsely promoted it with live performances. Her anticipated tour was delayed due to illness and now the dates have been rescheduled.
