Elton John has reignited his public spat with Madonna, calling
her a "fairground stripper" whose career is over.

with a brother or sister, without question."
Elton John has sold more than 250 million records in a career
spanning four decades and the singer-songwriter was inducted into
the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994.
