David Apologises to Madonna
The film producer was shocked when Madonna picked up the Best Song honour on Sunday (15Jan12) for her W.E. tune Masterpiece - and he took to his Facebook.com page to let the world know how he felt. Furnish ranted, "Madonna. Best song???? F**k off!!!"
He later added, "I think it was a fluke... When this happens you have to question the integrity of the awards. Did Madonna get the Golden Globe because she attended the awards and agreed be a presenter?" But Furnish, who was at the ceremony with fellow Best Song nominee Sir Elton, is now backtracking, calling his one-sided feud with Madonna "a tempest in a teapot".
In a new Facebook post, he writes, "My comments regarding The Golden Globes have been blown way out of proportion. My passion for our film Gnomeo & Juliet and belief in Elton's song really got my emotional juices going. But I must say for the record that I do believe Madonna is a great artist, and that Elton and I wish her all the best for next week's premiere of the film W.E." - Contact Music
