With her new film W.E. opening in the States this month, Madonna has been hitting the promo trail hard. Reporters should be quizzing Madge about her movie –and they are–but there’s one big pretentious Italian elephant in the room (that isn’t Madonna) that’s got to be taken care of first — Lady GaGa!
Other than that shady deny of the fake e-mail GaGa invented after getting called out for copying “Express Yourself”, Madge has been fairly quiet on the subject of the rookie songstress stealing her swag, until now.
When asked by Newsweek what she thinks of “Born This Way”, Legendarydonna replied: “I thought, this is a wonderful way to redo my song (‘Express Yourself’). I mean, I recognized the chord changes. I thought it was…interesting.”
GaGa — yo’ was snatched!
That’s not the only shade she’s thrown GaGa’s way, either. During an interview with Graham Norton, Madge had this to say about her imitator.
“When I first saw her I was really impressed by her and she was cool. She did remind me of me back in the day.“
Take note of the past tense used, capped off with the ‘that wannabe copied me!‘ kiss-off.
Madonna is currently prepping the release of her next studio album M.D.N.A. The album is due out in March, with the first single set to premiere with a live performance at the Superbowl, followed by a radio release two days later on February 7th.
