Uh oh! Is a celebrity catfight about to go down betweenMadonna and Lady Gaga?! You be the judge! When Gaga released Born This Way offher third studio album, everybody couldn’t help but notice that it soundedvaguely familiar. Almost dead on to Madge’s 1989 song Express Yourself.
Newsweek caught up with the Super Bowl half-time performerand asked what she REALLY thought about Mother Monster’s song. Her response? “Ithought, ‘What a wonderful way to redo my song.’ I mean, I recognized the chordchanges. I thought it was…interesting.” Interesting, huh? I mean, she didn’tcriticize it but she didn’t exactly praise it either.
Back in February, Lady Gaga made an appearance on TheTonight Show with Jay Leno and addressed the controversy about her “copying”the Queen of Pop’s song. “There is really no one that is a more adoring orloving Madonna fan than me. I am the hugest fan personally and professionally,”she said. She always claimed that Madonna and her team were “sending me theirlove and complete support on behalf of the single. And if the queen says itshall be, then it shall be.”
Is Madonna changing her mind on her “complete support” and “love”for Born This Way? Or was Gaga fibbing about Madge even sending her okay on thesong in the first place? There are so many questions! You be the judge!
Do you think Born This Way is similar to Express Yourself?And what do you think about Madonna’s response?
