Madonna Disses Lady Gaga for Copying Her!
Madonna sat down with ABC News and slammed Gaga for copying her iconic tunes. When asked about the obvious similarities in Gaga’s “Born This Way” and her 1989 hit “Express Yourself,” Madonna railed off.
“I thought, this is a wonderful way to redo my song,” she said, recalling the first time she heard the hit early last year. “I mean, I recognized the chord changes. I thought it was . . . interesting.”
Madonna added that she finds Gaga’s copying to be “reductive.”
“Is that good?” interviewer Cynthia McFadden asks, to which Madonna coyly responds, “Look it up.”
“There’s a lot of ways to look at it. I can’t really be annoyed by it …because, obviously, I’ve influenced her,” Madonna added.
