SIR Elton John has laughed off his onstage row with Lily Allen at this year's (08) GQ Men Of The Year Awards in London, insisting it was all "nonsense".
The pair co-hosted the event last month (Sep08) but fiery John appeared to grow impatient with Allen, who reportedly drank champagne throughout the ceremony and grew more intoxicated while on stage.
He seemingly ended up losing his temper with the Smile hitmaker and she responded by telling the singer to "f**k off".
But the Rocket Man has made up with the star - and has declared his love for the 23-year-old.
He writes on the British GQ blog, "That was just such nonsense. We had such a great time. She told me to f**k off, because I'm forty 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 they're being very unfair to her. We certainly didn't have a fallout onstage on all (sic)."
And he jokingly adds: "You have to put these people in their place sometimes."
