It was only a few days ago that Sir Elton John was encouraging fans to "boycott" Dolce & Gabbana and now he's declaring his love for the brand.

The 67-year-old singer heaped praise on the Italian design duo - who angered him earlier this week by branding kids conceived through fertility treatment "synthetic" and admitting they "opposed gay adoptions" - during a Las Vegas show on Wednesday night.

He reportedly told the crowd: "Listen, the band have been wearing Dolce and Gabbana, I love Dolce and Gabbana clothes."

It is not known whether Elton - whose two sons Zachary, five, and Elijah, two, with husband David Furnish were conceived through IVF treatment - was joking or appearing to end his feud with the pair. According to gossip website TMZ, the star's comments came as he was listing a number of people who have changed the world, including the late Princess Diana and Nelson Mandela.

Elton encouraged others to boycott Dolce and Gabbana earlier this week after hearing about their controversial comments, but just days later he was spotted carrying one of the brand's bags while out and about.

Stefano Gabbana slammed the 'Rocket Man' hitmaker for "attacking" the designers, insisting he is a "fascist" and "ignorant". He said: "I didn't expect this. I didn't expect this, coming from someone whom I considered, and I stress 'considered,' an intelligent person like Elton John. I mean, you preach understanding, tolerance and then you attack others? Only because someone has a different opinion? Is this a democratic or enlightened way of thinking? This is ignorance, because he ignores the fact that others might have a different opinion and that theirs is as worthy of respect as his. It's an authoritarian way of seeing the world - agree with me or, if you don't, I'll attack you. I even posted the word 'Fascist!' on his Instagram."
