Elton John
's husband is kinda, sorta backing off his anti-Madonna campaign ... issuing a quasi-explanation for trashing the singer after the Golden Globes ... but not exactly apologizing.

David Furnish -- who called Madge "desperate" and narcissistic when she beat out Elton for Best Original Song -- went back to his Facebook page today and wrote, "Wow!  What a tempest in a teapot.  My passion for our film 'Gnomeo & Juliet' and belief in Elton's song really got my emotional juices going."

He added, "But I must say for the record that I do believe Madonna is a great artist, and that Elton and I wish her all the best for next week's premiere of the film 'W.E.'"

Suuuuuure.

It's clearly not an apology -- so, why issue the statement? Your comments ...

She didn't designate herself the winner - other people did. So why is this guy being a douchebag? Next time just shut the frack up you fracking neanderthal.

very unprofessional. If you don't have something nice to say, be quiet. Let your husband fights his own battles. Elton John has to recognize he is not the only person with talent in the world.

He must have had a bad PMS day. Oh boo hoo. I am sure Elton warned him that was not they kind of attitude he should have if he is to continue working in Hollywood. Sore loser! Sounds like he really needs the attention. What a jerk!

The fact that it's film and television awards had me confused, why were any of these entertainers there in the first place. David may be a nobody, but he was right about her narcissism. What ever happened to growing old gracefully?

Madonna was great back in the day when she sorta had integrity or something. Now she is just a pathetic whore, who probably stepped on Jessica Biel's dress on purpose -- jealous bitch that she is. Wasn't she into Justin at some point? Anyways, good for Elton's man for telling it like it is...not sure he shoulda issued any follow up statement, though.

Let's not forget that Madonna is from JERSEY. That's JERSEY. J-E-R-S-E-Y. Jersey. She can talk with her fake British accent and watch every foreign film ever made and she is still from JERSEY. Just to be sure, that's JERSEY.

I think Elton and his boyfriend were in the wrong. They were dissing Madonna from the red carpet and when Madonna heard she didn't diss Elton back. She was being attacked by them and it doesn't make them look good. Sore loosers.

I believe people should say what they mean and then when others don't like it, DON'T APOLOGIZE!! Enough of this phony apologizing. Everyone knows you don't mean it anyway.

What bitter two-faced littrle bitches Elton and Furnish are. Now partly backtracking because without realisign what bitches they'd already been, she was actually rather kind and gracious about Elton when questioned at the press conference after the win. But who the hell cares about Furnish anyway? And for that matter, who the hell cares about Elton? A great performer in his day, but a sad old little man now.
