    Lady Gaga using Whitney Houston to avoid the Madonna Express Yourself imitation. I’m sure if Christina Aguilera was not in that tribute she would’ve said she thought of Aretha! That award had nothing to do With Born This Way she was saving her so called originality!

    LOLOLOL AT PEOPLE SAYING SHE IS AVOIDING THE EXPRESS YOURSELF STUFF.

    SHE DID AN INTERVIEW FOR INDIAN TELEVISION AND HERE IS WHAT SHE SAID:

    Amrita Tripathi: There is a lot of comparison to Madonna, especially with this latest song. How do you react to that? I remember you saying on the Jay Leno show that for you, Madonna is a queen.

    Lady Gaga: She is the queen, Madonna is the queen. I have so much and adoration for her. Being compared to her is unbelievably flattering, but in truth there is no one that can compare with Madonna. She is the queen!

    PROOF WITH VIDEO HERE : http://ibnlive.in.com/news/i-cant-wait-to-come-to-india-lady-gaga/143405-45-75.html

    STAY MAD HOES.

    I want to like her, I really do. But, something about her comes off as egotistical. She’s MAD talented and her first album set the standard for Pop music this era. Born This Way is a joke, I don’t need cheesy lyrics to feel empowered and comfortable with my sexuality. And there is nothing wrong with being inspired by Whitney, but let’s get real; there is nothing “Whitney” about her music or vocals.

    ”The message of Born This Way? Well, although the lyrics are quite simple, it’s quite complex in message. I always feel that in music, the best way to do it is to say it simple. And I wanted the song to be really direct. I didn’t want to sugarcoat it with metaphors. I didn’t want to do any poetic wizardry with the lyrics. I wanted to say exactly what I mean. I wanted everyone to challenge themselves to imagine a world with a new race – a race within the race of humanity, a race that bears no prejudice. I really wanted to challenge ourselves to dream of this new utopia where we all live in harmony and be free of judgement. I feel very in touch with the disenfranchised communities of the young people all over the world. It’s not just for them but for everyone. I think everyone in their life feels insecure at some point and this was the time for me to write this song because I now have a platform upon which I am some kind of a ‘role-model’ and I wanted to do the right thing. This song is so much bigger than me, way bigger than me actually. So many people could have sung it, you know. It’s not just a Gaga record or a record for myself. It’s something I could have heard so many powerful women singing over the years.” Lady Gaga

    Seriously though, I was a little shocked when she thanked Whitney Houston at the grammys but Im sure many have inspired her. Just Whitney the most. I thought that if she wanted to create an empowerment song it could’ve been more intricate. But I can see she had good intentions. When she sang a bit of it at the VMA i thought “Oh this song is going to be a great ballad”… well it turned out to be opposite. All the older generation has said it sounds like a Madonna song… Idk. I just think that she is genuine but, you can tell she is missing/hiding something because of her Outlandish behavior and outfits that she wears. I dont think she is yet comfortable with herself yet.

    @ Keta. If you look at the people that GaGa has been influenced by, Whitney was never mentioned.

    GaGa’s influences:

    1. Madonna.
    2. Britney Spears
    3. Blondie
    4. Grace Jones
    5. Freddie Mercury
    6. Michael Jackson

    If Whitney is such an influence, then where was she when GaGa was mentioning her influences since 2008? GaGa mentioning Whitney as an influence, is as big of a joke as when Britney used her as one. Neither one of them show a Whitney influence.

    About winning on the Grammys:

    “I was so shocked, I have to tell you. I was sitting at my seat, and thinking: “You are not going to win, you are not going to win.” Come up with a gracious smile. And they said the Monster… my father did this sort of Fred Flintstone kind of scream from his seat. It was so funny and it just got so emotional. It was like when I was a kid, my dad and I would run the rollercoaster together and he made that same sort of noise when we first heard about the Grammys. So it was just like a rollercoaster ride and when I got up there, I just thought about my sister and everything we have been through and our family because I don’t come from a wealthy family. My family really worked so hard for everything we have. Both my parents were the first from their generation to go to college. So just for the legacy of my family, it was such an incredible moment. Whitney was my major vocal inspiration when I was young. We used to listen to her rendition of the Star Spangled Banner over and over again. She has an angel in her throat and I promised myself that the first time I win a Grammy that I would thank Whitney on TV. I did that last year too but that was not on TV. So this year I had to thank her again.””

    SEE? WHITNEY WAS HER V-O-C-A-L inspiration. Stop talking s***. AND she spoke about Madonna saying how much she admired her and that she was flattered to be compared to her. She said MADONNA IS THE QUEEN and repeated it 4 TIMES TODAY.

    Of course people can blame her for not really talking about it more precisely, and just saying that Madonna was the queen, and okay with it but… still it doesn’t mean that she is using Whitney to avoid the controversy anyway, because she wasn’t talking about the melody, but in terms of vocals.

    I put inspiration, and influence under the same category. If Whitney “inspired her vocals,” then she obviously had an influence over her vocals as well.

    @ Bey Stan. Co-sign. We aren’t taking anything from Whitney, but Lady GaGa doesn’t show the slightest ‘Whitney inspiration.” Her whole career has been built on being a carbon copy of Madonna, and she has yet to record ballads showcasing her voice.

    Whitney and Madonna were the two biggest female acts during the 90’s and a large part of the 90s. Makes perfect sense to me.

    I already knew about Madonna (duh) and Freddie Mercury, but Houston?
    I agree that Gaga has better vocals than Madonna, but her statement -where she praises Whitney as an inspiration- would have sounded more genuine if this had come out years or at least months ago. But saying it, after she’s in the spotlight for the whole Express Yourself controversy seems more like a way out than a reality.
    Whitney has definitely inspired to some of the best and most versatile singers, but I have serious doubts on this one.

    We all know Whitney influenced the whole universe, because she clearly set the ultimate standard for female vocalist (aside from Aretha) and she is a legend and once upon a time an amazing singer with a voice that was out of this world. If I was a vocalist, Whitney would have definitely been one of my main influences.

    But for GaGa to just randomly drop her name in light of the controversy surrounding her, is rather bizarre.

And by the way, haters coming on here as soon as a post about her comes up, need to get a grip of reality, nothing you say is gonna stop this force in her tracks, she dominated itunes all over the world in one day, set records, soar to the top of Hot 100 in just three days of sales selling 450k copies of her HIT single, she adores Madonna, Madonna’s folks gave Born This Way a thumbs up. If that doesn’t sort everything out for you then you really must be a blatent hater or love her that much to not admit it ;) Join the Gaga band wagon, you know you want to :)

    You are soooooo right.
    Usually, I don’t really defend Gaga here because I don’t think she needs it, and these delusional haters just won’t listen nor understand. They say she’s terrible, yet they check every information about her, they keep checking and even taking their time to comment. LOL.
    And while they are sitting in front of their computer, my queen’s just won 3 grammys& Born this way is slaying, breaking records… SOOOO I guess they can say whatever they like, it just won’t stop Gaga’s world domination, sad isn’t it?

    Lady Gaga is very gracious. She’s honest about inspirations, but that isn’t the real issue about ‘Born This Way’. This issue is that people in music (popular music) always seem to be referential instead of creative. It’s getting to be a problem now.

    I’m not trying to compare the talented, educated force that is Lady Gaga to Rihanna, a no-talent hack. But, a good example is the ‘Rude Boy’ and ‘S&M’ video. Those videos were so referential, the bordered on copying, with S&M just being an outright copy of David Lachapelle’s work and ‘Rude Boy’ lifting an amazing amount from pop artist Keith Harring, Andy Warhol and M.I.A.’s previous work. Rihanna is an idiot and has no idea about these artists, so the Lady Gaga situation is different.

    But what I’m trying to say is–there is an overall LACK of originality (or at least and effort to be original) in the industry. Even from one of the most original-ish artists we have, Lady Gaga.

    @ Yes, exactly Born this way equals express yourself! How dare she!!! LOL… Seriously, I’ve NEVER been so irked by any artist ever in my life! When she mentioned Whitney’s good name I wanted to yoke her up right through my television. I don’t know why she can’t admit that the song is a Madonna remix. I swear she think that Madonna is so pleased with her and so impressed! Madonna is probably laughing at her every step of the way and coaching her while she’s making a completely fool of herself. I can see her advising her, “yes write those lyrics over – it was a hit then and it can be one now”… Then going home and laughing hysterically with her daughter Lourdes. Gaga have no clue that she will drop her as soon as her star fades(like she sort of did with Britney). With Britney, she knew their would be a comeback though so she teamed up with her on her tour. I can’t wait ’til the world see Gaga for the simple creature she really is.

MADONNA IS NOT THAT MUCH OF A DUET COLLABORATOR BUT SHE SEES BRITNEY AS A YOUNG MADONNA AND SHE IS VERY SELECTIVE OF THE PEOPLE SHE WORKS WITH!

    If you hate Gaga at the point you want her to die ( which is strange&scary because she obviously didn’t do nothing to you personally ), then just ignore her because you will hurt yourself even more because of her success.

    @ Luke, agreed! Comparing these 2 women or even mentioning them in the same sentence is a huge injustice to Whitney! I have no idea why Whitney is getting caught up in the mix of this nonesense! Gaga’s music is wacky and her voice is extremely empty (like you’ve just said). I feel nothing at all, when I listen to her. It always seems like a big joke. I don’t know what may be more so , her music or her singing. When she goes all gospel on you like she’s really belting, it’s hilarious. The only thing that tops it is BTW’s awkward choreography!

    Are some people on TGJ retarded in reality???? I mean, I thought it was just stan wars always and all that for fun. But I´m beggining to think there are so many people retarded on here!
    Hell, I´m not a fan of Gaga but I´m sure to some people I seem like a stan cos lately I´m defending her much. But I can´t can´t with retarded people
    It was a surprise to me the Whitney thing on the grammys. But it was a good surprise. Whitney or Mariah are my idols. Every f****** one that is in their 20´s and 30´s have been amazed by these women while growing up. When gaga and me were growing Whitney was the queen of the world. believe me, the bodyguard era is something nobody can compare in terms of greatness, worldwide popularity and respect from all people, from kids to my grand mother for that woman. No Beyonce, no Madonna, no nowadays puppets have achieved that.
    So WTH is the problem with Gaga adoring Whitney´s voice??????? Are u people retarded?? She hasn´t said her voice is like Whitney´s or something. She has not that type of voice, she has other type of voice so why should we be seeing something of Whitney on Gaga´s voice??? She just said Whitney is incredible. That´s it! And she has thanked her for all the times she listened to her in her house and was amazed and happy for hearing that out of this world talent. I´d do the same if I were a big new star (cos u can say whatever u want but Gaga is bigger than Bey, Britney and the others right now and by far). I´d do it. I´d took the mic and give thanks to Whitney, Mariah and others for making my life happier thought happy and rough times, day after day.
    Anyone has a problem with THAT??????????
    It´s annoying people saying nonsense over and over again. It´s annoying seeing people that like pure garbage and untalented people like Britney Spears talking s*** every f****** day on here. Do u even have self-steem? It´s ridiculous
    I´m not a Gaga fan but she shits on most of your favorites even if she is crazy, weird or whatever.

    Lady CaCa (I like that) has never been original that’s the difference between her and Madonna. Not only is “Born This Way” a Madonna rip but the verses are straight “TLC Waterfalls”. This chic has never been original and is one of the main problems with music today. The Grammys don’t mean sh*t no more. It’s all political BS. I love it when artist get online and tell the truth and if some of you listen you’ll learn a lot about the entertainment industry.

    I think what Ga Ga was trying to say was that Whitney Houston inspired her, such as emotion in singing, and big career, and always performing “live” not lip-synching. I don’t think she meant the song was necessarily resembling any material of Whitney’s. I personally think that Lady Ga Ga goes too far in her antics all in an effort to sale records. Her biggest influence on her career to me would seem to be Grace Jones, even bigger than being influenced by Madonna. Ga Ga is just blond like Madonna and makes pop songs so we think of Madonna first, but the things she does on stage is more in line with Grace Jones. Except, Grace knows how to do it and keep it artistic at the same time, and she doesn’t go as over the top as Ga Ga. And Grace is a trendsetter not a follower. -By the way, I like Madonna a lot, but who are we to defend her in this particular issue? Didn’t Madonna spend the first 15 years of her career coping Marilyn Monroe? She even had the youngsters thinking that was all original. And on one of her tours she sported the “I Dream of Jeannie” look. I guess she thought nobody would pick up on that, but I did. So yes, Ga Ga does copy, but so does Madonna. Basically a copier off of a copier, which is why the 80s and 70s were the best in music, with the 90s being ok. Whitney though has influence lots of artists in one form or another.
