Elton John and Lily Allen are still good pals
Sir Elton John has laughed off reports that he fell out with Lily Allen when they appeared on stage together at a showbiz bash.

The music legend, 61, was said to be furious with Lily for telling him to ‘f**k off’ at the GQ Men Of The Year Awards last month.

But Elton insists their banter was all in jest.

‘That was just such nonsense. We had such a great time,’ he tells GQ. ‘She told me to f**k off because I'm 40 years older than she is.

'I love her. She was feeling no pain, I was feeling no pain. I was sober, she wasn't, but it doesn't matter.

‘I think [the press was] very unfair to her. We certainly didn't have a fallout on stage.’

At the time Lily also played down the incident.

‘I'm 23, it was an awards ceremony, I drank the free champagne. How awful of me,’ she wrote on her MySpace blog.

Elton and I exchanged jokes and there were no hard feelings at all. In fact, neither of us gave it a second thought.

‘It's sad that an evening enjoyed by all had to ruined by some bitter journos again.’
