The 'Tiny Dancer' singer reignites feud with Madonna as he criticises her comments about 'Born This Way' star.
Sir Elton John has launched an angry attack against Madonna, describing the Queen of Pop's career as "over".
In an explosive interview, Sir Elton, who has clashed with Madonna in the past, also said the 'Give Me All Your Luvin'' singer had been "horrible" to Lady Gaga.
Madonna is currently on her 'MDNA' world tour, which features a section where her hit 'Express Yourself' is mashed-up with Lady Gaga's 'Born This Way'.
Last month, Madonna had another dig at the 'Judas' singer when asked during an interview with Brazilian TV what she thought of Lady Gaga's hit.
"I'm a really big fan of [the song]," Madonna replied. "I'm glad I helped Gaga write it."
Speaking to Molly Meldrum on Australia's Sunday Night show, Sir Elton said: "She's such a nightmare. Her career's over...and she looks like a f***ing fairground stripper.
"She's been so horrible to Gaga."
Madonna has previously said she thinks Gaga often references her own music, describing it as "flattering" and "amusing", but described 'Born This Way' as being somewhat "reductive".
