Cues a major side eye to Elton John.
Elton throws some shade at Janet when talking about artist lipsynching.
Elton says this in Rollingstone:
Elton still attracts the attention of a pop star in his prime. There have been scraps aplenty, beginning a decade ago by ripping on Madonna for lip-syncing in concert. “I say what I feel,” says Elton. “I probably went too far with Madonna, and I got very personal and I wrote her – she was very gracious.” Still, it’s an issue for a singer whose tenor has become growly but relies on no artificial enhancement. “You know, fucking music magazines writing a review of Janet Jackson saying, ‘This is the greatest show – four and a half stars.’ It’s fucking lip-synced! Hello! That’s not a show! I’d rather go and see a drag queen. Fuck off.”
