Elton John

Pop legend Elton John went IN on pop icon Janet Jackson for lip syncing at a recent concert.

Sir Elton John, 68, took issue with Ms. Jackson's lip syncing after attending one of the 49-year-old singer's concerts.

"I'd rather go and see a drag queen!" he raged in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine.

John groused that he expected to see a great concert after reading a stellar concert review for Jackson's shows.

"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."

Shame on Elton. Ms. Jackson recently resumed her tour after taking time off to recover from a throat procedure.

12 years ago, John blasted pop icon Madonna for not singing live. He later apologize to the "Material Girl".

"I probably went too far with Madonna, and I got very personal and I wrote her – she was very gracious."

    Lol.
    Coming from him though...

  • Full Monty

    He is a drag queen so no surprise there.

  • LibraGirlonly

    Really?coming from someone who sits behind a piano during his performances. Shut the heck up ole man you will not drag Janet you jealous Queen.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    All this hate on janet what she do??? #jealous #msJackson #rhythmnation

  • CJ413

    Elton John is a drag queen!! ????

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    I don't care if Ms. Jackson is lip syncing or not. She puts on a hell of a show!

  • Blak

    The woman just had throat issues...as long as the show is great then have a seat Mrs. John

  • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

    DUB...WHEREFORE ART THOU DUB? IT'S TIME TO CALL UP THE HOMIES...

  • therealashland

    Ol ms elton is an old messy bihh i see

  • Guest

    I saw Janet live for the first time, a few months ago, when the Unbreakable Tour came to the Chi. At that time, she was doing a mix of live singing & lip syncing. The show was AWESOME!! Maybe she's still working through issues with her health. This queen needs to have several seats.

  • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

    BENNY AND THE JETS IS MY JAM BUT THIS QUEEN JUST HIT MY "NO FLY" LIST...THE UNBREAKABLE SHOW WAS AWESOME! SHE DID A MIX OF BOTH AND SHE PERFORMED NON-STOP. PHENOMENAL SHOW POINT BLANK.

  • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

    SHE LOOKS MORE FIERCE...

  • JennyJazzhands

    I accept some lip synching from performers who do heavy choreography. I'm fine with that. Now if one of those singers that just stand at the microphone is caught lip synching that's another story.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    she was doing a mix of live singing & lip syncing.
    ------------------------
    As do LOTS of singers, especially those who dance a lot during their show. I wouldn't want to go to a show where the whole thing is lip-synced, but if your show is so good I can't tell which parts are live and which are not, then I don't care. I just want a good show for my money.

  • Just Keya

    He is a hater. Period. Love him, but a hater. Not only that, you would rather see a drag queen and lots of them lip sing....Just a Queen, queening out. Nothing to see here. #TeamJanet

  • ATL White Guy

    When I was in London recently, I took a bus tour. The tour guide that was speaking as we drove along said "And to our left, in the penthouse apartment in that building, is where the Queen of England actually lives....Sir Elton John!!"

  • Just Keya

    I guess when all you do is play the piano and not dance or anything you can do the whole show singing and not lip singing. smh. But Janet is up there dancing almost the whole damn time.

  • askquestions

    But no one is forcing him to go see a performer instead of a singer.

  • askquestions

    Does he throw a hissy fit about Madonnna?

  • Put some Respeck on B.Sweet

    She probably at lurnch.

  • askquestions

    And shouldn't he know what touring is like? Damn. Maybe he should go see Beyoncé. I like Janet. And if I go to a show I know what to expect.

  • Yoni

    what she do???

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Exactly. I don't expect John Legend or Alicia Keys to do anything other than sing live while they play the piano. They are stationary, they can just sit/stand there and blow. But Usher and Chris Brown running around the stage, I expect them to get winded and need a back-up track.

  • Just Keya

    Exactly. Elton John might want to have a seat or two in the STFU section. He would rather see a drag queen....tell his ass look in the mirror. Tuh. The response it's self was extra rude for nothing.

  • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

    He does. Their fights and public spats have been well documented. Not too long ago he called her a pig? Or something vulgar like that when she won a golden globe. He said she's not a real singer. He's such a queen, but I think he means well??

  • Just Keya

    I'd like to see Elton John get up on stage, sing, milly rock on any block all over the damn stage and kill it. Only then can he talk down about people on stage lip singing.

  • Empress

    Agreed. Let the singers sing and the dancers dance. Everytime I go to a concert I end up between four or more loud ass singing fans who sing the whole time so I just join in and find a way to enjoy it. The fans do the live singing LOL.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    If I sat down my whole set I'd sing live too shoo, that's the difference she moves and grooves. I'd pay to see Janet first because emm though I like Sir Elton at 45 I know I'd be sleep at his concert. Some things really can be thought and not said....

  • Greg: Less hate, more love.

    He's just a bitter Queen. Everyone Lip syncs once in a while, it's actually recommended, because singing continously day after day on tour, isn't good for your vocal cords.

    If Elton John don't go somewhere and hang upside down in a corner he better. Leave Ms. Jackson be hunty! Lol... Even though she whispers I still love her.

  • SG

    Right. FOH Elton.

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    Why is Miss Elton so bothered? We all know and love Janet the entertainer; we ain't never put Janet in the same sentence with Nippy, Mariah, and Patti ...much ado... :yawn:

  • Soon2BWife

    Well pop in one of your concert Dvd's and have several.

  • WetPntees

    All that beyoching JUST to say you wanna see a drag queen?! Just go already...

  • Mel

    Elton girl why you always coming for females Is it because you wish you was one? Did Miss Jackson make you wish you had her body what is it?

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    *Falls to ground lol*

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

  • WetPntees

    He probably wiped back to front and got Bacteria Vaginosis..

  • Mel

    He must have an album coming out

  • Fendi

    Elton John is becoming a stunt queen in his old age. It's not a good look. I don't see any benefits in an artist criticizing another artist publicly. If anything, reach out to that artist and discuss whatever your "issues" are with them.

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    Exactly! I mean, he'd probably prefer a drag queen to a loooooooooong list of other things/people, so what does his preference for drag queens have to do with Ms. Jackson? Elton turning into a 'mean queen' in his old age, smh.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    I have been to see Janet 4 times now. I think this is her last tour :(

    Why I went Yolo mode on the tickets.

    It was awesomeness.

  • AG

    I saw the show too in San Diego. It was amazing. She can still all those moves. She performed her routine from Pleasure Principle spot on....Elton sits at a piano, so of course he can sing live. This 50 year old lady is out here putting on a show!

  • Auditor

    That's what I'm saying..I was so disappointed. I was like wtf is this sh*t!?! She can suck a fat one...lol Paid $160 for two tickets too...I was going to follow her bus home!

  • Lean Left

    Ummm, Elton John is a world respected musician, and I can't help but think that most of you would have had plenty to say if you'd shelled out $100 to hear Janet lip sync as well.

    And he has a point: you can to a gay bar on any given night and watch a drag queen perform the same sort of way for free.

  • LibraGirlonly

    Well maybe he should go to those gay bars if he wants to see drag queens. Janet concert was awesome and it was money well spent. I love seeing Janet in concert.

  • Monday

    There are TONS of Artists who don't sing live in a live show. Madonna STILL don't sing live, why did he appologize for??

    And ugly in the inside. I think he wants to be in the spot light and is using Janet to do it.

  • Blue

    ***Breaking News**** His opinion had no effect on Janet Jackson's checking account balance.

  • TheRealLee

    Elton is a showman and like Billy Joel, he sings on stage. But Janet has plenty of company with the lip singing. People expect the singers to sound like they do in their records so these singers resort to this because the original vocals disappoint in comparison. Very few true and talented vocals can pull it off like opera and jazz singers that no one pays any mind to. BTW, if you go to Vegas and pay your hard earned cash on these celebs, you can expect lip singing.

  • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Dear Elton your fat, old and out of shape. I'm chubby too and Janet's age and I commend her for being able to do all those dance moves and move her lips and hips at the same time in rhythm! Sit your chubby tubby old self down at the piano somewhere .... Probably sweating doing that!!!???

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    Elton John is just a bitter queen that's mad that he can't make a come back. No one is into that 70's type of sound anymore. When you don't have that great of a voice Elton, you gotta do a little more than play the piano. That's the thing janet understands and you sir Elton need to understand???

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    If you call that singing. Ain't nobody into that 70's type of sound. Elton really needs an update

  • Noirluv45

    Oh yes people are into that 70's sound. That sound far outdoes that crap over the airwaves today. Talent never dies. People still like Shakespeare, Dumas, Picasso, and all the other greats of the past -- musicians included.

  • Lovelove

    I don't blame him one iota. That's an issue I have with these pseudo-singers like Janet, Britney Spears, Ciara to name a few. I'm not a Bee-Hiver but I respect Bey and even RiRi's sometimes lackluster performances because at least they sing live.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    Yes the 70's sound is coming back but its also revamped. Elton sound is old and out dated. Shakespeare is timeless ...........question are you comparing elton to Shakespeare if so there's no comparison..... AT ALL. elton have a few songs that are timeless. He has no right to comment on Janet when he has not had anything on the charts since candle in the wind and that's facts elton should be more respectful of other artist and there craft. His fat a$$ should try getting on stage and dancing for two hours and singing. Let's see how long he last. Even the best prerecorded there shows ask Beyonce.I had the utmost respect for elton. This has made me really dislike him

  • Sojourner’s Truth

    Let's not over look his point. Why pay the ticket price to hear Lip Sync. When do an artist sing to his or her ticket buyers? Lack of respect for hard earned money.

    if I had the power to fly I would have uncontrollably flew through the roof back in October when she came to my city lmao I heard that I get lonely beat (after the intermission) and I about seized when I stood up lol jumped up, body went stiff, teeth clenched, as I let out a high pitched scream. the ladies next to me died laughing lol

  • S. Williams

    I've been to one too. But when Usher was younger (and I learned this by way of Diary when MTV had real shows highlighting musicians) part of his training was running every morning and singing so he would learn how to move vigorously and keep his voice steady at the same time. this happened after he hit puberty and his voice was breaking at 14 and his album flopped. label didn't even wanna keep him bc he no longer had a kid voice. he trained and trained and then BAM "My Way" with the grown man voice and body to match.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    ??????

  • nucynu25

    Lol , u right

  • jussaying

    Oh wow i didn't know about the running/singing part. Learn something new everyday. Thanks for the insight. Guess losing his voice was a curse and a gift in the long run because it definitely made him better.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Janet's an entertainer and that's what she does. People try to credit Beyonce for singing and dancing hard an entire show. Beyonce doesn't sing, she yells and "talk" on key.

    Anyway, Elton can suck a sawed off baby rhino with this. Janet is the truth. Interesting he would attack her since he did record a song with her a few years ago. Hmmm. Janet's over in Dubai introducing her brand. Elton's jealous? Maybe Janet will not return his calls or join he and his partner for a threesome???

  • yvette46

    If I payed all that MONEY for a concert for anybody they better sing!!! I'm with Elton I work hard for my money..

  • Noirluv45

    No, I wasn't comparing Elton to Shakespeare because Elton is a musician and Shakespeare was a writer as well as other things. My point was just because something is dated, it doesn't mean it's dead or irrelevant. The "revamping" as you say is not true 70's music because many of today's artists aren't trained musicians and they don't have the sound. Elton has a timeless catalog , Patty. He's been around longer than most. Personally, whether you or I agree with his comment, he has every right to speak his mind. If I pay my hard-earned money to attend a concert, you better darn well believe I don't want lip syncing. You are entitled to your opinion and so is he. Any way, I love Janet, but I ain't mad at him.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    I get your point neither am i. I just think he should be a little more respectful. Things have changed since he was on top. With concerts now its all about entertaining. He's in the industry he should know that. If I go to a Janet, Beyonce, Madonna, Britney or jlo concert I don't expect to hear live singing I exspect to see a show. He knows that just as well as everyone else. That's why I say he said that about Janet. I could see if he had said it in an constructive way. It was very unnecessary and messy. A star with his kind of experience should know better. No matter how you slice it.....I was just uncalled for and I don't have respect someone that old saying childish comments. I'm sorry but that's just the way I feel about it. It could have been said in a more respectful way

    Thank you?????

    I agree if I pay my money your ass better be singing. In DC I can see a impersonator do a hell of a job for under 20.00 Do you know how much her tickets cost at least sing me 3 live songs.

    I agree with Sir John, I'm not spending all my coin to have an artist I love lip sync...honey I can catch the cast of the Jungle ATL for that.

  • Noirluv45

    Right. I get your point as well, Patty. I think with Elton, he's dealing with a new generation. Lip syncing wasn't acceptable back in the day because there was no need for it (except on Soul Train -- LOL). Artists used their God-given voices. I think there's just a disconnect. For me having grown up listening to Patti, Aretha, Evelyn Champagne King, the Emotions, MJ, Chaka, etc., I would never expect to see them and have them lip sync. I do understand what you mean, Patty, regarding respect. He didn't have to be so rude. It's not always what a person says, but how they say it. ??

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    I see we grew around the same time lol. I grew up with Regina anita Chante milira alyison Williams guy Keith Washington luther angela winbush and so on. It good to find someone that knows what real music is

  • Genia W-m

    He comes from a different era of musicians. He also plays an instrument which can't be done live. If JJ was TRULY lip synching because of throat issues then I'm sure he'll apologize. If she wasn't then he won't. Many of the younger singers dance so much it would be impossible to sing live.

  • kiddo1

    I just love JJ's hair.

  • Noirluv45

    ?????? Yes, ma'am! It sure is, Patty!

  • Audrey Nauden

    He'll have a Heart Attack @ Bey concert, WE ALL KNOW SHE LIP SYNCHING. At least JJ can DANCE.
