Elton John’s husband has apologized to Madonna on Facebook, following comments he made that the Queen of Pop didn’t deserve the Golden Globe award she won on Sunday.

John’s husband and producer David Furnish was publically upset after Madonna took home the Best Song award for Masterpiece, a song written for her upcoming film, W.E. Elton John was also nominated in the same category for his song Hello, Hello from Gnomeo & Juliet. During the Golden Globes, the camera also caught John’s chilly reaction to Madonna’s win.

Madonna. Best song???? F— off!!!Furnish wrote on Facebook shortly after the announcement. “Madonna winning Best Original Song truly shows how these awards have nothing to do with merit. Her acceptance speech was embarrassing in it’s [sic] narcissism.

He also noted that Madonna’s recent criticism of Gaga shows “how desperate she really is.Madonna recently slammed Lady Gaga in a Nightline interview and called her music reductive.

However, Furnish retracted his comments on Thursday, saying it was his passion for Gnomeo & Juliet that he produced got the best of him.

Wow! What a tempest in a teapot,Furnish wrote. “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.,” he added.

Madonna said in a statement she hoped her win wouldn’t get to Elton too much, as the two have been known to feud in the past.

I hope he speaks to me for the next couple of years,” Madonna said. “He’s been known to get mad at me so I don’t know. He’s brilliant and I adore him so he’ll win another award. I don’t feel bad!
