Elton John's Husband Blames 'Passion' For His Globes Rant Against Madonna

Elton John's Husband, David Furnish, is trying to make nice with Madonna after ranting against the singer following her nod for Best Original Song at the Golden Globes.

"Wow! What a tempest in a teapot," Furnish writes on Facebook. "My comments regarding The Golden Globes have been blown way out of proportion."

"My passion for our film 'Gnomeo & Juliet' and belief in Elton's song really got my emotional juices going."

"But I must say for the record that I do believe Madonna is a great artist, and that Elton and I wish her all the best for next week's premiere of the film W.E."

It's a bit strange that Furnish says his comments were "blown way out of proportion" given he left no doubt as to what he thought of the selection.

"Madonna. Best song???? F--k off!!!," he said at the time. "Madonna winning Best Original Song truly shows how these awards have nothing to do with merit. Her acceptance speech was embarrassing in it's narcissism."

But Madonna took the backlash surprisingly well and said she hoped there were no hard feelings.

"I hope he speaks to me for the next couple of years," she quipped. "He's been known to get mad at me so I don't know. He's brilliant and I adore him so he'll win another award. I don't feel bad!"
