B-B-B-Benny and the Pats? Elton John is hoping for a New England Patriots Super Bowl win next weekend when they square off against the New York Giants. Said the singer, “Well, you can’t watch sport without being passionate—oh yeah, I scream at the television.”
Will he save some of that screaming for Madonna’s halftime show? The two recently made nice after a feud started when Madonna won a Golden Globe over Elton. But the Rocket Man had some catty advice for the Material Girl: “Make sure you lip-sync good.”
Elton might not have much room to make jokes about lip-syncing; he and X Factor winner Melanie Amaro plan to pimp out Pepsi for a Super Bowl commercial. That’s about as far from a live performance as you can get.
