The Madonna Vs Lady Gaga fight has been going on like forever. Madonna had recently commented on the similarities between her Express Yourself and Lady Gaga's Born This Way. Gaga remained silent at that time and chose to hit back when the right time came and she did it.
"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 told the audience in between songs. And that doesn't make me feel good at all. That just makes me feel like I'm not 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," she added, according to The Huffington Post.
Gaga showed that she was being the bigger person by saying that all that matters to her is music and that hating each other is not an option.
"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," Gaga said.
Madonna takes a dig at Gaga whenever she gets an opportunity. The pop queen even mixed her song with Gaga's Born This Way to prove that Gaga had copied it from her.
"I thought, 'What a wonderful way to redo my song.' I mean, I recognised the chord changes. I thought it was... interesting. When I heard it on the radio, I said "that sounds very familiar". It feels reductive," Madonna had told Cynthia McFadden on 20/20 in May 2011.
Gaga did not stay silent hearing the accusation that she had copied from Madonna.
"That's retarded. If you put the songs next to each other, side by side, the only similarities are the chord progression. It's the same one that's been in disco music for the last 50 years. Just because I'm the first artist in 25 years to thinking of putting it on Top 40 radio, it doesn't mean I'm a plagiarist, it means I'm smart. Sorry," Gaga retorted.
