Lady Gaga and Madonna
Lady Gaga is not interested in taking Madge's place in pop because she doesn't believe in hierarchy.

Lady Gaga has revealed that she is not interested in going head-to-head with Madonna for the Queen of Pop crown.

During a recent appearance on Howard Stern's radio show, the Artpop hitmaker revealed that she was not fazed by her on-going feud with Madge as she doesn't care if the pop icon dislikes her.

Asked what was at the root of their on-going rivalry Gaga told Stern: "I think she's more aggravated that I'm not upset that she doesn't like me. Cause I don't care that she doesn't like me... No, I don't care... It's such nonsense.

"[Attacks from people like Perez Hilton are] really rooted in Madonna, that's the centre of it. It's silly... There's always this pissing match: 'She's taking her torch, is she the new her, is she going to outlast her or not?'"

The Mummy monster went on to claim that she doesn't believe in hierarchy in music: "There's this thing with some people that I'm a threat to the throne. I don't want your f**king throne, no thanks, I have my own.

"I actually don't want a throne at all, because I don't view myself as a queen, I view myself as one of my fans."

Although Madonna appeared to call a truce when she performed a mash-up of her song Express Yourself with Gaga's Born This Way during her MDNA world tour, Gaga remains unimpressed.

"I'm not quite sure what her intention was - to do that in the show - but I don't really care," she added.
