Elton John's Hubby

Issues Non-Apology

to Madonna

1/19/2012 2:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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.'"


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

Sounds like someone who is having an undue fascination with himself and is vain is calling Madonna narcissistic? Hmmmmm...
BTW, good ol' Elton is not homosexual he's bisexual. Just another example of the homosexual myth. Homosexuality is not genetics it's a choice. The wrong choice but a choice nonetheless.

He obviously meant it or he wouldn't have said it, so why lie and say he was sorry? Giving an explanation rather than a false apology was the honest thing to do. Besides, this isn't the first time there have been words between Madonna and Elton (or his people)!

It was posted of facebook, it was not meant to be taken as an apology. He did not issue a statement to his publicist, he posted it on facebook. Give him a break, Madonna is not Jesus and he is entitled to express himself... obviously ;)

its obvious jealous NARCASIST desperate one these ignorant pigs dont know what they even talking about! him and that pierce Morgan he truly has the face only a mother can love! Isnt his show about to be canceled for very low ratings? And Isnt he about to do some well deserved time for that phone hacking scandal when he was in charge of news of the world?

its funny how bitter some of these English ******s like himself are towards Madonna all of a sudden its like they all in cohoots. Like that ELTON john and is miserable wife! Who dare to say that bullcr*ap

But if he won then only the awareds have merit? Talked about a DELUSINAL NARCASIST!

And another thing BERNIE TAUPIN WRITES ALL ELTON songs as he has done for years including the song in mentioned that lost! And Madonna has always WROTE HER SONGs and produce or co write them she writes the lyrics and melodies and her co writers write the music so get ur facts right b4 u open ur mouth to say ignorant nonsense like that! And also Madonna never SLAM GAGA! SHE WAS GRACEFUL AND POLITE U might learn A THING OR 2 FROM HER! CUZ IT WAS TROLLS LIKE URSELF AND MEDIA FOLKS WHOS TRIED TO MAKE IT SEEM LIKE SHE SAID SOMETHING BAD WHEN SHE DIDNT! Its also very obvious that people like u are among the jealous desperate fools that have been trying to take Madonna down and trying to replace her. Thats why u happen to be best of friend with gaga all of a sudden out of nowhere! And if one investigates this they would see that all the fools that been slamming Madonna over
the past few years happend to be really close to gaga! So ur not fooling anyone the truth is out there u pigs! Like many people mentioned ELTON started to get mad at Madonna when she surpassed him in success and became the most successful solo artist in the would which to correct a post mentioned earlier she did in like her 8 or 9 albums Around the time confession on a dance floor came out. And right after is when ELTON started bithcing about Madonna lol
