David Furnish has tried to clear up any misconceptions regarding his criticism of Madonna's Golden Globe win in a statement on his Facebook page.
Describing the fight as a 'tempest in a teapot', Furnish went on to write: '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. 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 WE.'
This comes just days after Furnish posted messages on his social networking page suggesting that Madonna only won the award for 'best original song' because she had agreed to present a prize at the ceremony.
The Canadian-born director and husband of Sir Elton John also branded Madonna as 'embarassing' and 'desperate' adding: 'I like Madonna's music, but not her movies. She should stick to what she is good at.'
