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.

Congrats Billy, you've joined the exclusive club that consists of such **** heads like Lady Gaga and Elton John, for Dropping Madonna's Name To Get Attention!

People can't even make a little joke without it starting a war? I think he was just maybe taking a little jab at her being more successful than he is. He is obviously a real musician more than just an entertainer and a style setter. Madonna has a whole package that sells. Her voice might not be as strong as his, but she still has a way of keeping herself fresh and interesting in her music. Billy Joel songs all sound about the same after a while.

He is more like an old fuddy and she is still wild and influential. He is a good musician though.

It is SO fashionable to take shots at Madonna. The spray is to soothe the throat, moron, not for giving you a voice. What a loser.

I saw him monday at the Garden-He was beyond fantastic. There were many young people in the audience. Sounds the same as when he was young. This man is a genious musician of pop and classical music not to mention a poet. Maddonna can't claim any of these attributes. She is totally self absorbed and extremly lucky to be in the industry. Love You Billy!!!
