‘Madonna a great artist’

Elton's husband takes a u-turn days after calling Madonna 'desperate,embarrassing'.

Days after slamming ‘Queen of Pop’ Madonna as “desperate and embarrassing”,Elton John’s husband David Furnish has said his remarks were blown out of proportion.

Furnish stopped short of apologising to the singer,who beat Elton John to win the Golden Globe for her ‘W.E.’ song last week,which had left the director-producer fuming,a media report said.

“Wow! What a tempest in a teapot. My comments regarding The Golden Globes have been blown way out of proportion,” Furnish said.

“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.,” Furnish said.
