Elton: Praises power of Madonna

Sir Elton John has praised Madonna for forging the way for other female solo artists in the music industry.

The 65-year-old star recently reignited his feud with the Queen of Pop by saying that she looked like a "fairground stripper" and criticising her for being "horrible" to his son's godmother Lady Gaga.

But Elton told the Radio Times: "Madonna took the industry by the scruff of the neck, made opportunities for other women, like Gaga and Katy Perry."

However he said that "some (women) aren't good at handling their own careers".

He told the magazine: "Dusty Springfield was insecure, like a lot of women singers, including Amy Winehouse.

"It's tragic - Back To Black will sound as good in 50 years as it does today. She was one of the greatest, but if someone doesn't want to get well, they won't.

"Look at Billie Holiday. It's hard for women in this business. Some aren't good at handling their own careers. KD Lang could be a much bigger star but I don't think she wants to be."

Elton also hit back at criticism of Sir Paul McCartney for his performance at the Olympics opening ceremony.

"It's a c*** shoot - you don't have your own sound system, wait five hours backstage," he said.

"Paul won't give up, and why should he?", he said, adding that talent show winners "don't have the wherewithal to perform live".
