Madonna disses Lady Gaga in concert. Read More »

After Madonna performed a mash-up of her "Express Yourself" with Lady Gaga's similar-sounding "Born This Way" -- which many believed was a dig -- the 26-year-old finally took to the stage to respond to the diss.

While performing "Hair" during her New Zealand concert on Thursday night, Gaga took a moment to address her critics. Without directly calling out the "Material Girl" singer, she ranted:

"It sometimes makes people feel better about themselves to put other people down or make fun of them or maybe make mockery of their work," she said in a video of the speech posted on YouTube in which she speaks in general terms about knocking down others to make yourself feel better," Gaga said.

Watch the speech, which starts at 2:30 mark.

Gaga continued: "And that doesn't make me feel good at all. That just makes me feel like I'm not being a good human being ... I don't even want to fight back because it's more important to me to keep writing music. Because that's really all I care about, is the music."

"Things are really different than they were 25 years ago, and that's what makes 'Born this Way' so relevant for me. We're socially in a different place and it's OK, we don't have to all slice and hate each other anymore."

In addition to the rant, Lady Gaga also made headlines after one of Gaga’s dancer accidentally hit the singer on the head with a metal pole while performing her hit single “Judas” in Auckland, New Zealand this Sunday.

The pop sensation continued her set — performing another 16 songs before ending the show -- even though she had suffered a concussion.

Madonna caused quite a stir as well, when the 53-year-old singer exposed her bare breast in front of a packed house of concertgoers at her Istanbul concert. The singer was unapologetic for her risque actions.

    I grew up on Madonna. With that said, I side with lady Gaga. Her act is much more believable. Lady Gaga makes you feel comfortable in your own skin. Madonna has some old lady rebellion steez going on. Remember Madonna is the original material girl. I look at it this way, either your a cheap imitation of genius like Madonna , or you are the real deal and for me hands down Lady Gaga was just born that way!

    I thought this was hilarious and Kanye was right. Taylor Swift has not talent and writes the same songs over and over again.

    Lady Gaga of course! She rocks! I never ever liked Madonna, she gets on my nerves. Self-centered Twit. Why would she want to bare one of her puny breasts during a concert in Istanbul? Attention-wh*re.... .
