When it was reported that Madonna wouldn’t be attending the 2003 Golden Globes, it was believed that it was due to her son’s illness. However, Elton John believes that there may be another motive behind Madonna’s cancelled appearance. John poses that she may have cancelled her appearance when it was revealed that she would be seated at the same table as the legendary male singer.
Earlier this year, John called Madonna’s Bond theme “the worst Bond tune ever.” He added, “It hasn’t got a tune. I don’t think it’s the best Madonna record and I’m a big fan.” It is believed that the comments, first published in the UK’s Sky News, have resulted in a feud between the two pop legends.
In the same Sky News article, John hinted at a possible interest in doing a future Bond theme song when he suggested that the producers, “should have gone for somebody like Lulu and Shirley Bassey, or maybe I’m in that league.”
