Elton John Blasts Janet Jackson For Lip Syncing
Elton John seems to be a little ticked off about the rave reviews Janet Jackson got for her concerts last year. Elton tore off a Kayne like tirade against Janet Jackson, accusing his fellow superstar of duping fans by lip-syncing on tour.
Jackson, launched her comeback last year with the release of Unbreakable, her first album in seven years, and then hit the road for the Unbreakable World Tour. The concerts, her first in four years, kicked off in Vancouver, Canada in August to great reviews, but Elton can’t understand why everyone raved about the concerts, because he’s convinced Janet no longer sings live.
He told Rolling Stone, “You know, f**king music magazines writing a review of Janet Jackson saying, ‘This is the greatest show – four and a half stars, It’s f**king lip-synced! Hello! That’s not a show!”
“I’d rather go and see a drag queen,” the 68-year-old declared, before adding, “F**k off.”
You gotta love Elton…
