Is there really a feud between Madonna and Lady Gaga or is this simply a way to compliment each other’s artistic ability?
The 53-year old pop star performed a mash up of her own Express Yourself and Lady Gaga’s Born This Way during a rehearsal in Tel Aviv. It has been an issue raised before that Lady Gaga’s Born This Way was a mere copycat of Madge’s Express Yourself.
Madonna fueled the feud with Lady Gaga this weekend after mashing up her hit song “Express Yourself” with the 26-year-old singer’s 2011 hit “Born This Way.”
Madonna, 53, was caught on camera during a recent rehearsal in Israel, as part of her MDNA tour, singing her 1989 track “Express Yourself,” only to segue into Gaga’s song “Born This Way.” She then goes into her 2008 song off her Hard Candy album titled “She’s Not For Me.” Interesting track listing.
This isn’t the first time Madonna has taken a dig at Gaga’s song. She told Newsweek this past January,
“I thought, this is a wonderful way to redo my song. I mean, I recognized the chord changes. I thought it was . . . interesting.”
Lady Gaga’s response? “That’s retarded. If you put the songs next to each other, side by side, the only similarities is the chord progression.”
I didn’t know you can still use the R word. But, moving on….. WATCH THE VIDEO AFTER THE JUMP:
