David Furnish Apologizes To Madonna On Facebook

After Madonna took the Golden Globe for her song "Masterpiece," written for her film "W.E.", there were more than a few unhappy people in Hollywood. Elton John's husband David Furnish was especially vocal, and now he's apologizing.

After a post Golden Globes Facebook tirade in which Furnish called Madonna's acceptance speech "embarrassing in its narcissism," Furnish took to his page once again on Thursday to issue a mea culpa, citing his love of John's song "Hello Hello" in "Gnomeo & Juliet" as the reason for his bad behavior.

"Wow! What a tempest in a teapot. My comments regarding The Golden Globes have been blown way out of proportion. My passion for our film 'Gnomeo & Juliet' and belief in Elton's song really got my emotional juices going," Furnish wrote. "But I must say for the record that I do believe Madonna is a great artist, and that Elton and I wish her all the best for next week's premiere of the film 'W.E.'"

Madonna's royal biopic "W.E." hits theaters on Friday, February 3.
