Rupert Everett defends Madonna against Elton John's allegations of lip-synching

The Irish Examiner reports that Rupert Everett has come out in defense of his friend Madonna after Elton John publicly excoriated her earlier this week, accusing her of lip-synching on her recent Re-Invention world tour. According to Everett, "I don't understand what he's got against her, because this is the second time he's stuck into her a bit. That seems really unfair to me." Everett continued with a defense that, according to MSNBC.com's Jeannette Walls, actually bolsters John's side of the argument: "Listen, any singer who dances all the time, you don't have the breath to sing all the time. Everyone knows that. It's unfair to make it a point. If you do a heavy dance routine, at some point you're going to do a bit of lip-synch. But everybody does that. Madonna sings everything she can sing, but if she goes into a dance routine, she's got to dance; you can't breath and dance and sing at the same time. She doesn't lip-synch her whole performance. I bet Elton has lip-synched moments of his performance, even though he's at a piano all the time." As an addendum, Everett noted, "[Elton]'s very bossy these days, I think. I mean he's lovely, but he's a bit bossy, and he does seem a bit cranky."
