Elton John's Husband Apologizes for Blasting Madonna's Win at Golden Globes

Before praising Madge as 'a great artist', David Furnish explains on Facebook that his comment on her Best Song win at the 2012 Golden Globe Awards was 'blown way out proportion'.
Elton John's husband has apologized to Madonna for commenting that the Queen of Pop didn't deserve to win the Best Song award at the 2012 Golden Globe Awards. Taking to his Facebook account to clear out any misunderstanding, David Furnish explained that he never meant to offend the Material Girl.
"Wow! What a tempest in a teapot," the 49-year-old filmmaker wrote Thursday, January 19. "My comments regarding The Golden Globes have been blown way out of proportion. My passion for our film 'Gnomeo and Juliet' and belief in Elton's song really got my emotional juices going."
Furnish then stated that Madonna deserved the prize and that he had no hard feelings toward the pop star. He wrote, "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.'."
Both Elton and Madonna were nominated for the Best Original Song at this year's Golden Globes. The former was nominated for his song "Hello Hello" in animation film "Gnomeo and Juliet", but it was the latter who took home the prize thanks to her single "Masterpiece" from her directorial drama "W.E.".
Shortly after Madge won the award, Furnish vented his anger on Facebook as writing, "Madonna. Best song???? F*** off!!!." He went on ranting, "Madonna winning Best Original Song truly shows how these awards have nothing to do with merit. Her acceptance speech was embarrassing in its narcissism. And her criticism of [Lady] GaGa shows how desperate she really is."
During a backstage interview at the prestigious prize-giving show, Madge told reporters that she hopes there will be no hard feelings between her and the veteran British musician. "I hope he speaks to me for the next couple of years," she said. "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!"
Elton John's husband apologises to Madonna on Facebook

CELEBRITY OLIVE BRANCH ALERT. David Furnish has apologised to Madonna on Facebook (clearly not realising that all the celebs live out their feuds on Twitter these days - see Natasha Giggs for more info), saying their fallout over The Golden Globes was a 'tempest in a teapot'.
"My comments regarding The Golden Globes have been blown way out of proportion," he typed. "My passion for our film "Gnomeo & Juliet" and belief in Elton's song really got myemotional 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."
The row started when Elton - who was nominated for the same award - told reporters that Madonna had 'no f***in' chance' of winning a Golden Globe for Best Song, for her track Masterpiece in her film W.E. So when Madonna actually did win (AWKWARD), David took to his Facebook to show how annoyed he was.
"Best song????" he wrote. "F**k off!!! Madonna winning Best Original Song truly shows how these awards have nothing to do with merit. Her acceptance speech was embarrassing in its narcissism."
Meanwhile Elton was pictured doing a bad job of a gracious face as Madonna picked up the award.
He was then quoted by The New York Post as saying: "Did Madonna get the Golden Globe because she attended the awards and agreed to be a presenter?
"It's a song nobody has heard, from a film few have seen. The award should have gone to Mary J Blige or Elton. I like Madonna's music but not her movies. She should stick to what she's good at.
But now David appears to have calmed down/ decided he might want to pop along to a Madonna concert and not get a punch some time in the future. So will Madonna accept the apology? Go on Madge, your turn...
