Elton John and Madonna famously feuded for well over a decade, with the two music icons appearing to be unable to just get along. The cause of their public spat occurred during the 2004 Q Awards, when Elton lashed out at Madonna’s Best Live Act nomination. 

“Madonna, best live act? F*** off. Since when has lip-syncing been live? Sorry about that, but I think everyone who lip-syncs on stage in public when you pay like 75 quid to see them should be shot. Thank you very much. That’s me off her Christmas card list, but do I give a toss?” he said.

From there the gloves were off, with Madonna refuting the lip-synching claims in what would become a long-running tit for tat between the two music heavyweights. Elton infamously hit out at Madonna during a number of television interview appearances, calling her tour at the time a “complete disaster” and labelling her a “fairground stripper”.

Madonna’s representatives released a statement wishing Elton luck with his upcoming nuptials and took a thinly veiled swipe by saying Madonna hoped marriage would make Elton “a better person”.

Nowadays the feud seems to be simmering down after Madonna dedicated a song to Elton at one of her concerts, and the two seemed to reconcile at a restaurant in France when Elton apologised and bought Madonna dinner.

Piers Morgan is never afraid to speak his mind, especially when it comes to public figures. He often has a strong opinion on the latest celebrity gossip with many of his comments landing him in hot water. Morgan has picked fights with Daniel Craig for his pink blazer at the latest Bond premiere, Emma Watson for her use of the term “self-partnered” when discussing her love life, and even former friend Jeremy Clarkson after Morgan, who was editor of The Daily Mirror at the time, published paparazzi photographs of Clarkson with a woman who wasn’t his wife.

His most famous and long-running feud, however, seems to be with Meghan Markle who he has called out on numerous occasions. Morgan’s disdain for Markle reached its height after the infamous Oprah interview aired. Morgan fired off a number of tweets after the interview was broadcast, calling Markle’s actions “an absolute disgrace”.

Morgan recently took to Twitter to launch another scathing attack on …….
