Madonna dedicates Masterpiece to Elton John

During a performance in Nice last night, Madonna dedicated the song Masterpiece to the pianist who called her a ''fairground stripper''.

Madonna fan @nice_matin reported the 53-year-old saying of Elton John ''he's a big fan and I forgive him.''

The move may have been strategic - Masterpiece from Madonna's film W.E, beat Elton John's Hello Hello from Gnomeo and Juliet at this year's Golden Globe.
