The longtime feud between Elton John and Madonna is heating up for the zillionth time. The fork-tongued "Candle in the Wind" singer blasted the queen of pop yet again in a recent interview with his pal Molly Meldrum. In the interview, which appeared on Australian TV, Elton lashed out at the 53-year-old mother of four for her treatment of fellow musician Lady Gaga. Madonna is constantly picking on Gaga and accusing her of ripping off her music. As it so happens, Gaga is godmother to Elton's son Zachery. During Elton's outburst he snipped, "Why is she such a nightmare? Sorry, her career is over. Her tour has been a disaster and it couldn't happen to a bigger c***." And the hits didn't stop there -- the 65-year-old rocket man continued with likening her to a cheap exotic dancer, saying, "If Madonna had any common sense she would have made a record like Ray Of Light and stayed away from the dance stuff and just been a great pop singer and make great pop records, which she does brilliantly. But no, she had to go and prove…she looks like a f***ing fairground stripper. She's been horrible to Gaga." Can you feel the love tonight? While Elton didn't mince words about Madge, he had nothing but praise for the "Born This Way" singer, who is playing an active role in little Zachery's life: "She's great. Wherever she is in the world she sends texts to him. She asks 'how is he?' she comes and bathes him, she sings to him, she's a good godmother and she really pays attention."
