London (ANI): Sir Elton John couldn"t help joking that he would probably end up dead from 'uranium poisoning" after meeting Madonna at the annual GQ magazine"s awards in London. Sir Elton, who accused Madonna of miming when she"s on tour, publicly buried the hatched with Madonna by apologising to her on stage as he played host for the ceremony at the Royal Opera House. The singer had made the remark last year, causing a furious Madonna to return Christmas card he had sent.
But when Madonna appeared on stage to present the Inspiration award to her friend, the interior designer David Collins, Sir Elton told guests that he had asked the singer to forgive him for his remark. “I did offer a grovelling apology and even offered to join Kabbalah. Madonna is a great inspiration to us all," The Sun quoted him, as saying. “Every record moves on and she steps up to the mark every time," he added.
However, as Madonna left the stage, the multi-Grammy Award winner could help quipping: “I"ll be found dead of uranium poisoning in three days." The legendary singer paid tribute to charity fundraiser Jane Tomlinson by dedicating a song and calling her a “real hero." The singer spoke about his admiration and respect for Tomlinson at his sell-out concert at London"s O2 Arena recently.
An emotional Sir Elton hushed the crowd, and praised the mum of three who died of cancer at 43 on Sep 3.“This song is for real heroes and tonight I"m dedicating it to Jane Tomlinson — a real hero," The Sun quoted him, as telling the crowd. The O2 Arena audience commended the life of the woman whose athletic feats raised 1.75 million pounds.
