The gloves are off, and the feud between Madonna and Lady Gaga is raging on!

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.

    I think Madonna needs to grow up and stop being such a bitch to the people who have "copied" her and take it as a compliment for her influence on them! She should really apologize to Lady Gaga and Gwen Stefani!

    Move on Madonna- its just petty- "Obviously ive influenced her" - you are way past it madonna

    I personally like Born This Way more than Express Yourself. Madonna annoys me slightly, although I do recognize her talent, she's had her time and she should let Lady Gaga have hers.

    I don't like either of these two so I can say from a non-biased opinion that Lady Gaga is a HUGE copycat. She's not original AT ALL, she copies everyone, Madonna, Britney, Christina, Bette Midler. Soon her days are over the better.

    Madonna = the original pop diva (who has now faded away into a cradle robbing, man arms used-to-be pop diva). I must say, I don't mind a good Madonna song jammin' on my stereo every now 'n' then.


    Madonna is a stuck up little bitch. She is so rude. Did y'all see that video of a person giving her flowers at a press conference and she's like "He should have known I hate these kind of flowers" and it was into the mic so everyone heard it? What a skank!

    I don't think so.Each of their styles are different.At least I don't see it.

    Never would have made a connection between the two. Madonna….step back and sit down. A new Queen is in town. GO GAGA GO

    Not the biggest Madonna fan, but she is exactly right. When I first heard the Gaga song I started singing Express Yourself. Was surprised Madonna never took that to court. Oh well, you know the sincereist* form of flattery and all that.

    Probably an unpopular opinion, but cannot stand Madonna, she's had her day and needs to disappear for eternity.
