Sir Elton John is convinced Madonna's career will be over after her current tour.

The Material Girl is currently performing shows across the world as part of her MDNA tour and Sir Elton turned the air blue during an Australian TV interview when he jumped to the defence of Lady Gaga, his son Zachary's godmother, over claims the singer copied Madonna's music.

Elton John says Madonna's career is over

He tells music mogul Molly Meldrum on Australia's Sunday Night show, "Why is she such a nightmare? Sorry, her career is over. Her tour has been a disaster and it couldn't happen to a bigger c**t...

What would Madonna say?

"If Madonna had any common sense she would have made a record like Ray Of Light and stayed away from the dance stuff and just been a great pop singer and make great pop records, which she does brilliantly.

"But no, she had to go and prove... she looks like a f**king fairground stripper."
