Remember how for years whenever either of them needed some cheap easy publicity that Madonna and Elton would toss off an easy insult in the other’s direction and multiple headlines would ensue?
Well the Queen and Queen of pop have finally apologised in a sorry I said it and it appeared in the papers but I still totally meant it sort of way:
In an interview with Extra 66-year-old Elton explained: ‘We were in a restaurant in France in the summertime.
‘[Madonna] came in, and I sent over a note. She was very gracious. I apologized profusely because what I said should never have appeared in public.’
They were at La Petite Maison restaurant in Nice (separately) before her show at The Salle Nikaia and onlookers at the restaurant said at the time that they were genuinely pleased to see each other and greeted each other like old friends.
It’s all very clever PR because now when they appear at each other’s shows and act like all’s forgiven then that’ll spark as many headlines as bitching about each other did.
