Them's fightin' words!

Elton John lost to Madonna at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, where the Material Girl won for Best Original Song (Motion Picture) for "Masterpiece," which she wrote for W.E., which she also directed.

And John's husband, David Furnish, was unhappy about the loss. (Madonna beat out John's "Hello Hello" from the film Gnomeo & Juliet plus three other contenders, including Mary J. Blige's "Living Proof" from The Help.)

Shortly after the 53-year-old pop singer's name was called, Furnish wrote on his Facebook page: "Madonna. Best song???? F**k off!!!"

After Madonna's acceptance speech -- the orchestra even started playing in an attempt to cut her off -- Furnish's rant continued.

"Madonna winning Best Original Song truly shows how these awards have nothing to do with merit. Her acceptance speech was embarrassing in its narcissism," he wrote. "And her criticism of Gaga shows how desperate she really is."

Last week, Madonna gave several interviews in the press accusing her pop queen successor Lady Gaga of ripping off her classic "Express Yourself" in "Born This Way," calling the latter track "reductive."

But, backstage at the Globes, Madonna was hopeful that her win wouldn't irk John, 64. "I hope he speaks to me for the next couple of years," she quipped. "He's been known to get mad at me so I don't know. He's brilliant and I adore him so he'll win another award. I don't feel bad!"
