Lady Gaga and Madonna might have similarities. Recently, Madonna has praised Lady Gaga by said when having a chat with Graham Norton that she is very talented person and she reminded Madonna of herself. When Madonna first saw Lady Gaga, she was really impressed by her. According to Madonna, Lady Gaga was cool and reminded her of herself back in the day.
Madonna, Material Girl, has shared her thought when she heard the “Born This Way” song for the first time in an interview. Madonna feels that Lady Gaga’s popular hit “Born This Way” which is also self-empowerment anthem is similar to her pop single “Express Yourself”.
Madonna calls the similarity between her song “Express Yourself” and Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” as a redo. Therefore, that’s sort of backhanded. Madonna also shared her interest to Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” song. Since she is overt, Madonna isn’t taking a swipe and being catty at Lady Gaga but asserting her dominance in a subtle way.
Lady Gaga herself is a huge fan of Madonna. She expressed her praise to senior when she was attending last year’s “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” At the show, Lady Gaga said that there was really no one that is a more loving or adoring Madonna fan than her. Lady Gaga added her praise to Madonna by saying that she was the hugest fan of Madonna whether professionally or personally.
Relating to the Madonna’s saying about the redo of her song, Lady Gaga who is called Mother Monster lost her cool when she was pressed by the media about the similarities between her song “Born This Way” and Madonna’s “Express Yourself” song. Lady Gaga said to public that she can’t be categorized as a plagiarist just because she is the first 25 years artist to think of putting it on Top 40 radio. Lady Gaga said once again in another occasion that it just a matter that she is smart.
Lady Gaga defended herself from the rip-off claim “retarded” by explaining that the only similarities between songs are the chord progression when someone puts the songs next to each other and side by side.
