Billy Joel makes a catty remark over Madonna's singing


He's certainly not the first male artist to take an unprovoked swipe at Madonna.
On Tuesday night, singer Billy Joel joined the likes of Elton John in giving the Queen of Pop a not-so-sly dig over her singing abilities.
The ageing rocker who was sat comfortably behind his piano, got out a vocal 'soothie' spray which he then used as a gag to joke about Madge.
Who asked him? Last night Billy Joel took an unprovoked swipe at Madonna's singing ability on stage at Madison Square Garden in New York

'I saw Madonna use this once... it didn't help her much,' he said, with much laughter erupting from the crowd.
No doubt when Madonna did use the spray, she was performing some of her more complicated choreography on stage, and not having a sit down.
The comments from 64-year-old Billy echo Elton John's, who has continuously jibed Madonna for supposedly miming on stage.
Perhaps missing the point of her energetic performances and slightly more challenging stage presence, Elton warned Madonna to 'lip synch good' when she performed at the Super Bowl.
However, the pair soon made up after the Queen of Pop graciously accepted Elton's apology. 
In 2012, Madonna beat U2 as having the biggest selling tour with her hugely successful MDNA Tour, but has still come under fire for her singing, despite her incredible energy and choreography on stage.
