Conversation starters: Elton John’s scathing remarks about Madonna and more

Icon bashing

Oh, Elton! There you go again. The Original Bitch launched yet another attack on his personal favorite pop piñata, Madonna, telling an interviewer that the singer’s “career is over,” adding, “She’s such a nightmare ... she looks like a f*cking fairground stripper.” Strange words from a man whose career is partly based on his outlandish costumes. And seriously, Elton, both you and Madonna, in your inimitable ways, helped to change the face of popular music. Can’t you two silly kids just get along?

No way, Jose!

First, who knew that former baseball superstar Jose Canseco lived in Las Vegas? Second, who would have guessed that a guy who made $48 million during his career would be broke? That’s right; Canseco, who will forever be a punch line in the steroids era of baseball, filed bankruptcy last week in Sin City. He also tweeted, “My life sucks, but it’s better than yours.” Way to reach out to the few fans you have left, Jose.

Floyd's future

Undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. was released from jail last week after serving two months for his misdemeanor domestic battery conviction. Floyd played the whole thing very quiet, not talking to the press and getting together with friends and family. It’s a good start, and we’ll certainly be watching with great interest to see if this experience changes anything regarding Floyd’s bad-boy behavior. To the haters, the guy served his time. He deserves a second chance.
