Elton John once admitted that Madonna’s “Die Another Day” was the worst James Bond song he’d ever heard.
For a long time, Elton John and Madonna have had an on-again, off-again rivalry.
The Rocket Man singer was known for saying exactly what was on his mind about the Queen of Pop on any given day.
Despite being good friends, this has occasionally resulted in a back-and-forth between the two.
However, after Madonna’s smash hit James Bond song, Die Another Day, was released, John couldn’t hide his dislike for the theme.
And it’s a viewpoint shared by others on the song.
For rock legend Elton John, slamming Madonna is nothing new.
For years, the two have sparred verbally, with John never holding back his punches.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, John started the feud in 2004 while accepting the Q Awards’ classic songwriter award.
“Madonna, best live act?” John exclaimed.
“Since when has lip-syncing been live? Sorry, but I believe that anyone who lip-syncs on stage in front of an audience for a fee of around £75 should be shot.
Thank you kindly.”
Madonna’s chances of winning a Golden Globe for best original song were also questioned by Elton John in 2012.
Then, later that night, Madonna won the Golden Globe.
Madonna said, “I hope he speaks to me for the next couple of years.”
“He’s been known to get enraged at me…He’ll take home another award.”
“I’m not in a bad mood.”
Despite the fact that Pierce Brosnan’s 2002 film Die Another Day was a modest box office success, it was heavily criticized by some fans.
A segment of the audience couldn’t stand some aspects of the movie, including Madonna’s hit song of the same name.
Many fans felt it was an inappropriate song for Brosnan’s final performance as 007.
Elton John, on the other hand, didn’t just dislike the song; he called it “the worst Bond tune ever,” according to CBS News.
“It doesn’t have a melody,” John later added.
“James Bond themes are usually very campy, but this one is different…They should have gone with Lulu and Shirley Bassey, or maybe I’m in that league?”
However, Lulu, the legendary singer, admits that her theme for the Bond film The Man With the Golden Gun was a flop.
“I’m pretty sure mine was the worst…”
