Billy Joel

I May Be Crazy ... BUT

Madonna Can't Sing!

1/29/2014 1:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

012914_billy_joel_launch_v2Time to clear out the deli aisle ... because we got some BRAND NEW BEEF ... Billy Joel's now hopped on the Madonna-bashing bandwagon, firing shots at Madge for her crappy singing.

Billy skewered Madonna Monday night in NYC, during the first of his residency shows at Madison Square Garden.

He jokes about using a special spray to help soothe his throat before a song, and then says, "I saw Madonna use this once ... it didn't help her much." The crowd went nuts. You gotta listen.

Never liked the sound of his music even a little bit. Madonna puts on a wicked stage show and sells out stadiums around the world whenever she chooses too tour, enjoy ur nights Mr.Joel , you have many fans, but Nowhere near the fans of Madonna world wide.

I wonder why he even said this? She is going to snap back I promise you. But anybody who has been listening to Madonna for all the years she's been around can tell you she ain't no Whitney Houston. I think she sounds better today than she did when she first started. If you listen to Borderline she sounds like she had been huffing helium for about two hours before recording.

What is it with old men & Madonna ?!?!

Maybe he should concentrate on staying Sober, & not slagging other artist off. I guess that is the new trend. To make yourself feel better.. slag off another artist.

Madonna represents the throwaway forgettable genre of music she was even booed by her own fans on her last tour.

Madonna is all hype, she's the most overrated performer of all time.

I'm not so much a fan of his music, but BillyJoel is one of the best musicians alive. Madonna instead was and is a talentless slore. Listen to her Mickey Mouse voice at 'Material Girl' etc. At that time she was quite cute so nobody cared about her thin squeaking and producers kept on writing songs for her.
Now, she's dry as a Martini, old and dirty and does 90 min aerobic on stage without ever changing her voice due to lib synching. And you do not want to her her sing, believe me!

Madonna can sing...she just sings badly (though that can be said about a lot of "singers" nowadays).

I'm the last person in the world to defend Madonna, but she can sing. You're right, BJ. You're crazy.
