HOLLYWOOD (Zap2it.com) -Madonna just can't do anything to
please those Brits. This time it's Sir Elton John
leading the charge, attacking the Material Girl's ‘DIE
ANOTHER DAY’ theme song in the press. He told British
journalists that the tune is the worst 007 theme in the
franchise's history: "It hasn't got a tune,"
Elton John told The London Sun. "James Bond themes
are usually very camp and this one's different. It is the worst
Bond tune of all time!" He added that the producers
"should have gone for somebody like Lulu and Shirley Bassey,
or maybe I'm in that league."
This is the second attack on the actress/singer by the Elton John
household. Earlier this month, David Furbish, Elton John's
life-mate, went public with his opinions when he heard that
Madonna was going to make a movie about her life.
"I can't imagine anything more boring than a film about her
because there's no secrets," Furnish told the British press.
"She's bared her soul to the press… We've witnessed
every incarnation. There's no mystery, there's no mystique."
"Die Another Day" composer David Arnold has also
dissed Madonna's foray into the Bond universe. "Ideally,
I would have liked to make some musical
sense of her song," he told London's Sunday Express,"
but I couldn't!"
