Elton John Dragged Janet Jackson in a New Interview with Rolling Stone
Elton John came for Janet Jackson in a new interview with Rolling Stone. And it’s ugly. Very ugly.
The “Your Song” maestro is known for his other-worldly pipes and piano skills, so he doesn’t take kindly to artists he thinks lip-sync. Need we remind you of his decade-long tête-à-tête with Madonna, where he accused her of miming and dubbed her a “fairground stripper”? They made up, but it seems John has switched gears to Jackson, who he thinks is guilty of the same crime.
“You know, f–king music magazines writing a review of Janet Jackson saying, ’This is the greatest show—four and a half stars.’ It’s f–king lip-synced! Hello! That’s not a show!” John told the magazine. “I’d rather go and see a drag queen. F–k off.” (The quote is most likely referencing Jackson’s current Unbreakable World Tour, which has garnered critical acclaim.)
