Elton John started off round 87 of his fight with Madonna with a low blow: The "Rocket Man" singer called Madge the big "C" word in an interview on Australian television, leaving no wonder how he really feels about the singer.

"She's such a nightmare. Her career is over, I can tell you that," John said on Australia's "Sunday Night."

"Her tour is a disaster and it couldn't happen to a bigger c****."

Yikes. Doesn't it seem like the aging stars are trying to one-up in the increasing fight to stay relevant in a young music industry?

He then goes to say she should have made another record like Ray of Light if she wanted hits, adding that she makes "brilliant" pop records. "But no, she had to go and prove… she looks like a f***ing fairground stripper."

Many think their feud is over Lady Gaga - the "Born This Way" singer has drawn comparisons for sounding like Madonna's "Express Yourself."

"She's been horrible to Gaga," John continued, alluding to comments Madonna's made about the godmother of his son. However, their fight goes back a lot further than that. John seemed to strike first during an acceptance speech at the 2004 Q Awards.

"Since when has lip-syncing been live?" he quipped. "Sorry, but I think anyone who lip syncs while you pay like 75 quid to see them live should be shot."

John's husband, David Furnish, even started on the hating after Madonna won a Golden Globe earlier this year.

"Madonna. Best song???? F**k off!!!" he tweeted at the time. "Madonna winning Best Original Song truly shows how these awards have nothing to do with merit." He later apologized.

Karl Lagerfeld vs. Pippa Middleton

Designer Karl Lagerfeld is known to put his foot in his mouth from time to time - and he did it again last week while talking about Kate Middleton and her sister, Pippa Middleton. The Chanel designer quipped that he loved Kate's look, but not Pippa's.

"I don't like the sister's face. She should only show her back," he told the U.K. newspaper The Sun. Ouch.

Paris Hilton Vs. Everyone

Remember Paris Hilton? The heiress is trying to reinvent herself as a DJ - she's even putting out an album courtesy of her boyfriend, DJ Afrojack. However, no one else in the industry is embracing her.

"It's over," Deadmau5 tweeted after he found out about the album.

Samantha Ronson also had a few things to say about Hilton's new career path.

"That s**t with [Paris]. It's like, c'mon man. She's tried everything now. Just put some quality behind the s**t that you do. Put some effort into it," she told TMZ in July.
