Tell us how you really feel, Elton John!

In his latest tirade, the legendary rock star harshly targeted the world of reality TV, calling the small screen genre “the lowest common denominator.”

“I hate reality television, I think it’s the lowest common denominator,” John said in an upcoming documentary, titled Sellebrity. “It’s mind-rotting to me. It numbs my brain.”

The “Tiny Dancer” singer didn’t deter from calling out the legions of stars who found fame through reality shows.

“And the people being called celebrities and have their own reality shows, I want to kill ‘em,” he added. Ouch!

This hasn’t been the first time John has publicly bashed reality television. In 2004, he accused American Idol voters of being racist after Jennifer Hudson was ousted off the show, while Fantasia Barrino and La Toya London were constantly grouped in the bottom three.

“These three girls would have the talent to be members of The Royal Academy or Juilliard,” the singer-songwriter told reporters in 2004. “They have great voices. The fact that they are constantly in the bottom three, and I don’t want to set myself up here, I find it incredibly racist.”

As for Kim Kardashian, don’t expect her to walk away unscathed from the British rocker’s ongoing rants. “Who the f**k is Kim Kardashian? Some stupid old tart from somewhere. Reality has killed talent…” he said during a 2011 Rolling Stone interview.

Madonna and Elton John Make Up — For Real!

In news that should inspire icicles to form in Hades, Madonna has reportedly made up with Elton John — for real, this time.

The Sun reports that Madge and John met up at a restaurant in Nice, France and exchanged pleasantries. A source dished, “Elton goes to the Petite Maison for dinner fairly regularly as it’s near his villa in Mont Boron. But Madonna was also there for a bite before her show, which was down the road and didn’t start until around 10:30 PM,” the source noted. “Just as he was leaving, he went over to talk to Madonna and they were laughing and smiling. They even hugged each other.”

Wow! That’s a far cry from the barbs and eye rolls the pair have exchanged for the bulk of 2012. Their feud started when Madonna began trashing John’s close pal (and godmother to his son), Lady Gaga, for essentially ripping ‘Born This Way’ off of ‘Express Yourself.’ John was also furious when Madge’s ‘Masterpiece’ beat out his ‘Gnomeo and Juliet’ soundtrack contribution for ‘Best Song’ at the Golden Globes.

Most recently, John called Madonna “a fairground stripper,” and said, “She’s such a nightmare … Her tour has been a disaster and it couldn’t have happened to a bigger c—.” Ouch!

Madonna responded in much less vulgar manner, offering a somewhat backhanded olive branch. She dedicated the song ‘Masterpiece’ — the same one John denounced — to Elton at a recent concert in France. “Mr. Elton John,” Madonna said, “I know he’s a big fan of it. And I know he’s a big fan of mine. And you know? I forgive him. Gotta start somewhere.” Maybe she wasn’t being sarcastic after all!

Joe only had eyes for Demi, Nick avoided Miley, and Kevin and Danielle…were a married couple

It sure looks like these two besties have turned their relationship from ‘just friends’ into something more. Here’s the evidence! Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato have been BFFs for years, but lately it seems like there’s more than mere ‘pal’ vibes going on between the two Disney stars. Our romantic radar was on red-alert at the Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar party in West Hollywood March 7 when we saw Joe brought his ‘buddy’ as his date!

“Joe spoke to Demi very cozily for most of the night,” an insider dished to HollywoodLife.com. “They were inseparable. Wherever Joe went, Demi would follow. I STILL say there is something going on between these two!”

As Joe’s older brother Kevin partied with his new wife Danielle Deleasa and his younger brother Nick avoided ex-girlfriend Miley, Joe, 20, only had eyes for Demi, 17. They’ve worked together and collaborated on singles since their song ‘This Is Me’ in 2008, most recently on the duet ‘Make a Wave.’

Britney Spears Lady Gaga Collaboration In The Works?

Is the hottest pop star of the 2000s prepared to join forces with the genre’s reigning queen? Word is Lady Gaga and Britney Spears are cooking up a collabo that will appear on Spears’ forthcoming LP. London’s The Sun claims the pair met at the 2010 Grammy Awards after Lady GaGa’s dad approached Britney. One thing led to another, and now the blondes are planning to head into the studio together.

 “Gaga has made no secret of just how much of a Britney fan she is,” a source revealed. “She has even admitted she used to have posters of her on her wall and she was a great source of inspiration when she was a struggling songwriter. She was delighted when she found her dad chatting away to Britney at the party. He introduced them and the three of them were locked in conversation for ages.”

The snitch says, “At the end of the chat, they exchanged numbers and agreed to go into the studio and work on music together as soon as GaGa finishes her ‘Fame Monster’ tour.” The 23-year-old New York native recently teamed up with Beyonce for the new single “Telephone” and performed with Elton John at the Grammy Awards on Jan. 31.
