It takes quite a lot of schmaltz to make Madge look gracious, but that’s exactly what he managed to do this week.
After a decade of slagging her off – he’s called her a “f+[%ing fairground stripper” (I must confess, I don’t actually know what that is), said ‘Die Another Day’ was the “worst Bond song ever” and accused her of lip synching on a recent tour – he eventually found that sorry wasn’t the hardest word.
Apparently, the big love-in actually happened some time back in La Petite Maison in Nice.
Researching this some more, I discovered that the rather mixed reviews this restaurant has gotten includes this TripAdvisor piece of advice: “The ‘f- you’ attitude of the waiter is included in the price, but the trick lies in treating them the same way”.
Well, that seems to be precisely what Madge did to Elt, when having received a private message expressing his contrition, she agreed to let bygones be bygones.
Being the vicious, unfunny old queen Elton has turned into, he later explained this truce by saying the reason he apologized was that none of this comments “should have appeared in public”.
Surely this makes the apology about as hollow as Heather Mills’ leg? Madonna – the ball is in your court…
