David Furnish Explains Madonna Comments

David Furnish Explains Madonna Comments

David Furnish has taken to his Facebook account to clarify previous comments he had made about Madonna‘s win at the Golden Globes over the weekend.

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

Madonna won the award for Best Original Song for her work on “Masterpiece” from her film W.E., besting David‘s hubby Elton John‘s song “Hello, Hello” from Gnomeo & Juliet.

    I didn’t know you could buy a Golden Globe these days. Hope you got a bargain Madonna, maybe an old lady special?

    Dina > Replace “Old lady” special by black woman or ****** and you’ll get my point of view on your comment…or maybe not cuz it takes a brain.

    Dina > My comment was not about you not liking the song. It’s about the age diss. Replace “old lady” by gay or black to see how offensive it is.

    What was taken out of context? Is initial facebook comment was crystal clear and made him sound like a bitter old lady….Either someone talked some sense into his head or the booze in his system finally wore off.

    I don’t care for her anymore and if you saw his show in Vegas, it was so bad people were leaving, but the look on his face when she got the award – well the hatred was just dripping so David Furnish’s so-called apology is a little too late.

    backpedaling is for f/a/g/s and not the fabulous flamboyant homosexual kind. (if you have never seen louis ck explain the difference between f/a/g/s and f/a/g/s, you should def watch it)

    @stacey: LOL she dances WAY better than lady gaga. the woman got her college scholarship from dance. if you know anything about dancing you will know madonna’s moves are a lot more precise and solid. lady gaga is cute but she looks like she needs to take a piss when she dances. it’s wobbly and flimsy.

    stacey Says:

    @pinata: Who’s talking about Gaga? obviously SHE’S wayyyy better then Oldonna cos’ she actually HAVE TALENT, but i’m talking about Madonna’s skills, she have NO talent, she’s only a 80′s icon.

    facts Says:

    Elton and his leash are hypocritical. I don’t think either song was very good. But these guys cry about every little thing. I can’t recall the last time Madonna said bad things in public about either of these two. And @Stacey , Lady Gaga has made a career stealing from Madonna and Britney.

    He’s obviously backtracking. He was perfectly loud and clear about his feelings. Should just keep it that way. Stop with the bullshit coverups.

    Lona Says:

    Funny. Your comments were not blown way out of proportion, they were rude and inappropriate to say the least. You owe Madonna an apology, not a confirmation of how great artist she is, cuz she does not need you to confirm that.

    Sheila Says:

    I’m not a big fan of Madonna the person, to me she is better heard in music than seen or heard in interviews, but she is talented in music (her movies not so much). I like Elton John’s music too but he should learn to be a better loser. How can David now say that tweeting F**K off was blown out of proportion, F**k off is pretty to the point what it means!! Total backpeddling, I would respect celebs more if they said “yeah I said it, and I meant it” sometimes, because it just looks like their PR team told them to backtrack. F**k off is F**k off and there is no misinterepretation of that!!!!
