Elton John vs. Madonna

In 2002, John called Madonna's theme song for the spy film "Die Another Day" "the worst Bond tune ever." A decade passed, and in 2012, both John and Madonna were nominated for original song at the Golden Globes. John claimed Madonna had "no ... chance" of winning. John's husband, David Furnish, also made that known on Facebook. Around the same time, John called out Madonna once more, saying, "Make sure you lip-synch good" at the 2012 Super Bowl halftime show. Ultimately, Madonna delivered an impressive performance at the Super Bowl halftime show, and she won the Golden Globe for original song over John.
