Elton John Slams Janet Jackson: 'I'd Rather Go & See a Drag Queen'

Elton John just slammed Janet Jackson for lip-syncing in concert, and he’s not holding back one bit.

“You know, f*cking music magazines writing a review of Janet Jackson saying, ‘This is the greatest show – four and a half stars.’ It’s f*cking lip-synced! Hello! That’s not a show! I’d rather go and see a drag queen. F*ck off,” the 68-year-old entertainer told Rolling Stone about the 49-year-old singer’s show.

A decade ago, Elton ripped Madonna for lip-syncing in concert, but he does have some regrets about that one.

“I say what I feel,” Elton added. “I probably went too far with Madonna, and I got very personal and I wrote her – she was very gracious.”

    Why is he mad tho?? Typical misogynistic homosexual.

    WTF is wrong with him?! WTH… This guy has got a lot of venom inside him. Guess the rumors are true, this guy is a vile human being.

  • H8tersg0nnah8

    Well guess what Elton she’s not sitting in front of a piano..she’s dancing on the stage..with the choreography and running the show she can’t have the breath for vocals that you can sitting on a damn chair all the time…

  • Cruizin1960

    Well, if Elton got off his fat ass and moved on stage like Jackson does, he would find that lip syncing is the only option. People go to see Janet as much for the stage production as for the music. Perhaps HE should try one of the routines while singing…doubt he would get past the first verse.

  • tiny bossy

    WTH is wrong with him? Get a dildo, Elton, calm down…SMH

  • Arx

    At least Janet dances but whats Britney’s excuse…
    In terms of Elton, old gal hasn’t been able to hit a high note since 1977. If queen Elton added some lip-syncing into her set maybe she’d still be able to sing her songs the way they were originally recorded.

  • Adrian A. Parrado Jr.

    ELTON IS TIRED AND LAME– And sounds HORRIBLE ….. Sit down honey and shut up … and go redo that weave or whatever that rat’s nest is !

  • Itsme

    One nasty, jealous old queen.

  • craigypants

    Hes become so bitter and nasty in his old age. Why does he always call out women for this everyone does it. Why doesnt he call out lady gaga or celine dion or mariah carey who hasnt sung in years.

  • Amie

    Elton John aint goin do do crap on another female artist.So dont bring another artist into this because Mariah Carey,Celine Dion and Lady Gaga got the greatest voices and sang good on stage.Elton John needs to retire.

  • Amie

    Elton John is worse than Kanye West.Bitter and selfish now.What a old fart!

  • Gina

    Elton John, still the biggest bitch in town. A grown man perpetually jealous of women.

  • Legendary Trolly

    He’s right, but he cant even write one single lyric! Rappers are more talented than him, even the lower level rappers! Its cool u can play instruments, and scheme the game for millions of stats and achievements! But your singing what other people write! Its okay to co write, but you cant even do that which is shocking, once I found out!

  • Legendary Trolly

    Well Beyonce is one of the few who can do gymnastics on stage, while not missing a beat! She can fall, and still do work!

  • Amanda

    I wouldn’t be so pissed about what this fat, fruity b*stard said about Janet if he didn’t actually record a song w/ her & PRAISED her for her vocal ability AND she OUTSUNG him on the record too!!! Oh yeah, look it up on YOUTUBE!!! If it’s one f’ing thing I hate is a two-faced, fat, bloated, homo trying to come for a woman (b/c they ALL do it in one form or another) especially if they have praised that woman before! I hate, two-faced homos! John can eat a d*ck!!! However, I’m sure he’d enjoy that!

  • Amanda

    Yes, he is!!! I can’t stand his hateful a$$!!!! He tries to diss everybody just like Boy George does!!! I guess it’s just bitchy nature!

  • Amanda

    Yep. It’s typical of them to go off on women ALL the f’ing time! I think they’re jealous that they can’t be women! LOL

  • Amanda

    Exactly, he & Boy George are the two biggest bitches EVER! I never liked Boy George for this exactly same reason & just lost any & all respect I had for this old, fat fart!

  • Amanda

    He’s NOT right, you misogynistic piece of dog sh*t!!! Have you EVER been to a Janet show???! She sings LIVE & dances!!! Dumba$$

  • Amanda

    Exactly.

  • Amanda

    If you think Beyonce doesn’t lip sync then, you’re a f’ing idiot who’s in denial! LOL She’s been caught doing it several times!!!

  • Legendary Trolly

    Everyone limpsyncs sometimes, however Beyonce is the real deal and she’s going to go INN any chance she gets! We cant deny that she is the best stage performer since MJ!

  • Legendary Trolly

    She cant really sing that good live tho!

  • Amanda

    Who “limpsyncs”? lol You can say what you want about her singing but, don’t you dare say “she’s the best performer since MJ”! The best stage performer since him has ALWAYS been Janet – period! So, lets not go there, ok. As a matter of fact, Janet was BETTER than Michael – a fact that ppl don’t have the guts to admit.

  • Legendary Trolly

    HAHAHAHA!!! Janet is talentless and doesnt have the vocals to be the complete package! Janet, just capitalized off her brother! Boy if you DREAM of the day Janet gets on stage and does HALF of what Beyonce does, you better wake up and apologize because its rare to see a female performer that has Patti, Aretha-like vocals, who can run all across the stage and not miss a beat! I mean the girl is BAD, and comparing Janet to Michael? Come on fam, Janet to me, is similar to Tinashe or some female that memorizes dance steps and just executes! Their will NEVER be another Jackson doing what Mike did, and the only person NOT named Jackson, that comes close, is Beyonce! In fact, Beyonce has stronger vocals than Mike so her job is harder, I however, STILL cant put her ahead of Mike! I have them about kneck and kneck!

  • craigypants

    Ah no

  • Amanda

    Man, shut your dumbass up!!! You’re ignorant as hell and, have the education of a 5th grader (just like your idol, Bouncy) since you can’t spell for sh*t! WTF are you 12, 13??? That’s thr normal age of Bouncy’s fanbase. Learn to use spellcheck before you try to go in on somebody! And…did your dumbass even know that Bouncy went to Janet’s show in LA last Oct.??? It WAS NOT the other way around, mind you!!! And, it will NEVER be the other way around! LMAO If Bouncy has sense enough to know that Janet is Queen & a legend then, you need to get a clue, booboo. Bye. Have a nice life, loser.

  • Legendary Trolly

    Beyonce aint my idol! Im a dude, and I dont listen to Beyonce but I know a legend in the making, when I see one! We still dont have a performer right now in this era, that can do all that stuff! Im 28 and IDGAF if Beyonce went to Janet’s concert, Im sure she is a fan and grew up watching Janet! But Janet aint no queen! She was a cool female version of Mike(because of her talent, and last name) But because this era is evolved, its very hard to compare her to what we have today, in Beyonce! Beyonce is truly a legend

  • Legendary Trolly

    Ah yea!

  • TruthMachine

    Psychomuch

  • TruthMachine

    Fat like janitor Jackson!

  • TruthMachine

  • TruthMachine

    lip synching muslim fat monkeys are hardly something we aspire to become hun!

    I used to love Elton and I can’t lie even though he went a bit bonkers with this rant, I still love some of his music. However him going in on Janet (who is literally one of my favorites) is just downright wrong. I like and even love Madonna (maybe Borderline Madonna more than anything else) and I wasn’t too upset like I am now about him going in on Janet………..Madonna is one that has really put people on blast for some time and I just figured it was karma, even though no one deserves to be treated in such a way…Janet has always been one that never had anything bad to say about anyone EVER!!!!!!!! Janet is literally an angel (regardless of people seeing her breast and having a fit) for as long as I can remember Janet Jackson.
    That entire “Super Bowl ordeal” where everyone threw her to the wolves was just horrible and yet she never called anyone out or said anything bad about anyone. Justin T. career was never compromised and was praised and recognized while Janet was blackballed and treated as though was a trailblazing entertainer for so many years prior and still to this day. Janet is a real ‘class act’ and always has been……Elton needs to recognize that Janet might be younger than him but she has been in the entertainment business for 40 years plus. Elton seems to forget that he was one that did some serious lying (pretending to be bisexual), cheating (pretending to be bisexual when he knew he was gay) and a great deal of drugs (he has admitted to have a love for ‘nose candy’ Cocaine. He is now someone’s husband and father to children and for him to behave in such a way publicly is pretty bad especially against someone he would at one time have a relationship with. Janet not only sang on one of his songs but she would always support his charities and for him to slap her in her face in such a public way is something he is going to have to answer for not one day but soon. I don’t think Janet is going to come out and say anything because her silence is going to make Elton look like a bigger douche bag for even coming for her.
    The bitch might be back but Karma is a serious bitch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
