Watch: Lady GaGa On Madonna Feud: “I Don’t Want To Fight Back”

Published: Monday 11th Jun 2012 by David

Earlier this year, Pop icon Madonna struck up controversy when she accused Lady GaGa and DJ White Shadow of ‘ripping’ her hit ‘Express Yourself’ to create GaGa‘s #1 single ‘Born This Way‘.

Going as far as to add a mash-up of the songs to the set of her ‘MDNA‘ Tour, Madonna– much to her own detriment- continues to show no sign of ending her ‘attack’ on the singer even though GaGa is yet to respond.

Well, until now.

Find out what fans who attended the star’s ‘Born This Way Ball‘ in New Zealand claimed she said of the feud below…

Half way through her set, Ms ‘Pokerface‘ is reported to have said:

I learned so much this year about that, I learned a lot about negativity, I’ve learned a lot about people trying to tear you down. I’m just not that person and I never will be.

I don’t want to fight back, it’s more important to me to keep writing music, ’cause that all I really care about.

Madonna’s feud with GaGa marks the ‘diva spat’ she’s been engaged in over the years.

Thus far, the ‘Material Girl’ has ‘gotten into it’ with Mariah Carey, Cyndi Lauper, Debbie Harry Janet Jackson and if reports are to be believed ‘Shakespeare In Love‘ actress Gwyneth Paltrow.

    Preach it Lady Gaga! Thats why I’ve always loved her – for her unmatched positive energy.

      • Teri Freel June 15, 2012

        That’s the way to do it!!!!!!!! Love it

  2. the real xoxo June 10, 2012

    unlike chris brown who talks about positivity right after he f**** someone over, gaga means it. lovely lady.

    • mobwife June 10, 2012

      This has nothing to do with Chris Brown so trying to throw his name in the this mess to save CaCa is total bullsh**!
      Unlike the PRIVILEGED American female Man CaCa (and Madonna), who is protected and afforded all the PREIVILEGES HER STATUS IN America PROVIDES, Chris Brown is constantly undersiege.

      Should he respond to the attacks he receives is anyones guess?? I can say he doesn’t respond to 95% of all that comes against him but when he does – per you clowns – he’s of course suppose to remember his NON-PRIVILEGED AmeriKan status & CRAWL, BOW AND BEG LIKE A GOOD NEGRO IS SUPPOSE TO DO!

      • steven June 10, 2012


        I hope you are not a Rihanna fan because she’s on twitter having beef with her own fans and whomever else that say something she don’t like. So have a seats in the basement until you learn how to spell and come after someone

  4. coco June 10, 2012

    love u Gaga…ignore da bit*h

  5. trucie June 10, 2012

    Good for her. Sad for Madonna. Love them both but don’t understand why celebs are now finding it necessary to take personal jabs at their peers.

  6. CHINA June 10, 2012

    So Has anyone else seen Madonna’s hypocritical thirsty ass popping out her nipple
    Ain’t this the same b**** that shaded Janet for her nipple slip, and gaga for unoriginality.

  7. KIMBERLY June 10, 2012

    way to go gaga. Never fight back! Madonna should be feeling like a wrinkled tomato. no longer supporting the WITCH.

  8. Roman June 10, 2012

    I’ve never been a Gaga fan, but I got some new found respect for her, she’s humble.

    I really think that ppl like Lil Kim should also take that approach. Nicki Minaj doesn’t even care about u anymore. Every interview Kim does she tries to take shots @ Nicki. Irrelevant h**

    Sometimes saying nothing is better than acting someone. Madonna is grasping at straws to keep herself relevant, even flashing her boobs, b****’s career will be over soon, why should Gaga keep her relevant by fighting.


  9. Met June 10, 2012

    O please gaga stfu. How many times did u throw shade at Britney?!

    Fake ass. Always n will be is more like it.

    • MonsterDNA June 10, 2012

      That’s not her fault if Britney’s concerts are full-playback. Saying this isn’t fighting, just telling the actual truth.

    • Dan July 31, 2012

      She never shaded Britney. She loves her and is open about it. She does, however, talk about how she never uses playback and how unprofessional it is.

  10. Sigh June 10, 2012

    Well, you don’t really fight back when you are caught stealing. What a fool.

    • CC June 10, 2012


  11. I Judge Flops June 10, 2012

    Madonna is just doing what she has always done to remain relevant. Her feuds with Mariah and Janet were for the same reason, TO KEEP PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT HER.

    Gaga is just another victim of the Madonna publicity stunt.

    • NewF*YorkBabe. June 10, 2012

      The problem is, it never works out the way Madonna hopes – She always ends up lookina fool. Madge is always talking s*** about other people, but since she’s the original thief of style (Bowie, Grace Jones, Freddi Mercury) she can never back herself. Funny how Gaga could simple quote Mariah from ’95 and the comments would still be relevant. “I really haven’t paid attention to Madonna since 7th or 8th grade when she use to be popular” ( LOL !!!

      Madonna needs to focus on her career and stop comparing herself to other people. Maybe then her album would still be on Billboard 200.

  12. PrettigurlrockD June 10, 2012

    She’s satisfied and confident with her own career. Y should she b**** and complain about her haters? There will always be critics but its not important. Ppl will always have s*** to talk. It just means you’re relevant and important on their brains.

    And I never was a fan of Madonna anyway. Only a few of her songs.

    • Teacher June 10, 2012

      Hahaaa like u talk about Rihanna! U got yo own self 2gethr LOL…flop ass b****!

      • prettigurlrockD June 10, 2012

        Honey, a flop ass b**** is who you stan for. I have no interest in praising rihanna. She is overrated with very little talent. Maybe u stans like kissing her ass but I will always tell the truth. That doesn’t mean I wish her to die just want her to go away cuz she’s useless. And obviously she cares about what her critcs say or else she wouldn’t be lashing out at ppl on twitter randomly. k?

  13. teamkim June 10, 2012

    I respect lady gaga. Now you can’t compare this to lil kim and nicki minaj situation. Nicki stole kim’s style while disrespecting her. So don’t go there.

    • BLACK MADONNA June 10, 2012


  14. mobwife June 10, 2012

    Please, what the HELL can CaCa say? Born This Way was CLEARLY A RIP OFF of EXPRESS YOURSELF! CaCa would have done better simply saying “I was paying my respects to the one of the legends in music” and moved on! If Madonna chooe to persue it beyond that point then she would be considered pety! This way it looks like CaCa got over on Madonna’s classic song, style, and overall image!

    • Gaaglooo! June 10, 2012

      You Are A Chris Brown’s Stan, A Woman Beatter, LipSinger B****, So Have A Mluti Seats Please!

  15. POP ROYALTY ( Révolution) June 10, 2012

    this is not related to the “madonna fued” by any possible means , so Madonna is the only source for negativity to GAGA ?

    anyway , she is the one that started it !! she should have known since “alejandro” it is all gonna blow in her face.

    so over this stupid feud , but it doesn’t matter how you slice it , gaga is the one to blame ………………..

    • POP ROYALTY ( Révolution) June 10, 2012


      and GAGA is not a VICTIM or an ANGEL as she try to make it in here …….

      • steven June 10, 2012

        GaGa was to blame? Just like Rihanna ripping off that dude that sued her so NOW your saying that Rihanna is the one to blame also?

      • Gaaglooo! June 10, 2012

        @ Steven, Don’t Wast Your Time With Rih’s Fans, Most Are Arrogant, Hypocrite, Biased And Full Of Shits!!!

    • EBONY CLAWS June 11, 2012

      Oh no it seems like you’ll NEVER realize the meaning of GAGA.

  16. Darianna Jones June 10, 2012

    Born This Way >>>>>>> Express Yourself

    That is all.

  17. NATURALBEAUTY June 10, 2012

    In other words, I respect my elders. Love the shade. Gaga shouldn’t respond, it’s a better look, let Madge look a mess.

  18. Troy June 10, 2012

    “It sometimes makes people feel better about themselves to put other people down or make fun of them or maybe make a mockery of their work,” Gaga said to her audience. “But, that doesn’t make me feel good at all. That just make me feel like I’m not being a good human being. I feel that if you’re a really good human being, you can try and find something beautiful in every single person no matter what.”

    “And it’s a challenge,” she continues. “But at the end of the day I learned so much this year about that. I learned a lot about negativity. I learned a lot about people trying to tear you down. And I’m just not that person, and I never will be. And I don’t even wanna fight back. Because, it’s more important to me to keep writing music. Cause that’s all I really care about. My music.”

    “I don’t have a fanbase that wants me to fight or bite or be shady,” she adds. “Or cunty. The way that we all used to be. We’re in a new place in society now, aren’t we? Things are really different now than they were 25 years ago and that’s what makes Born This Way so relevant for me. We’re just socially in a completely different place now. And I want you to know it’s okay: You don’t have to hate and slice each other anymore.”

    • yeyay June 10, 2012

      could this be why she’s not around Perez Hilton as much???? Perez says he’s changed but I don’t believe him….

  19. christinastherealtalent June 10, 2012

    Gaga is such a fake b****. She preaches about being anti bullying, demeaning etc….but she never once defended Christina when the media doggged her. Instead, she said all the backlash Christina got made her even bigger. But I see she ain’t got all that mouth when it comes to Madonna. If Gaga would give credit where its due and quit leading people to believe she’s innovative and creative, I’d show more respect for her.

    • Vegas Girl June 10, 2012

      Why would she defend Christina when Christina is the one that seemed to be shading Gaga with her comments about Gaga being a man or a woman? That’s makes no sense and in fact her silence and non acknowledgment of it is Gagas M.O., she doesnt engage in that type of stuff….period.

      She may be an attention hog but not at the expense of other artists.

      The media jumped all over it because that’s what they do, and Gagas profile increased.

    • yeyay June 10, 2012

      Perez Hilton lead the charge against Christina…really Perez was so evil to her…

  20. Gilberto June 10, 2012

    I’m so pround of Lady Gaga. She doesn’t care about her peers. Madonna is using Gaga to keep her name relevant, but she doesn’t give a f*** about the mummy singer. Oldanna thought she could use Gaga as she used Britney, but she was so wrong. Unlike Britney, Lady Gaga is constantly showing her artistic side, and because of this Madonna sees her as a real competition.

    • JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) June 10, 2012

      Exactly. Madonna knows she is true competition, Britney never was

  21. ADC143 June 10, 2012

    The b**** CAN’T fight back. SHE was the one who COPIED/STOLE Madonna’s image AND song. Gaga’s fake Madonna ass doesn’t have a pot to p*** in, that’s why she’s trying to be “not respond.” What the f*** can the trick say? F*** Gaga’s weird, unoriginal, wannabe ass. F*** her! I hate that b**** with a thousand hot suns.

  22. DTG June 10, 2012

    Behind the ludicrous and attention-seeking Halloween costumes, the obnoxiously overblown music videos, the swagger jacking of Madonna’s personality, and the conspicuous plot to manipulate the socially awkward and misfits of society into thinking that they have a voice (and are empowered) through her, is a bunch of banal and contrived gibberish heavily propped by media hype that does not live up to it. What began as a bouncy, pixyish, one-woman-show-esque version of what the Spice Girls did in the late 90s has now become an egotistical, overproduced–yet still oddly generic–mess of grating sounds that is irritating to listen to and takes itself too seriously.

    Once upon a time this character that is ‘Lady Gaga’ may have provided a cheeky and quirky contrast to what had been the model of what was popular, and it may have been quasi-endearing, but when pop stars infuse that much camp into their image, at a certain point the irony *will* get old and lose its charm. In the meantime, this woman has literally crammed about a decades worth of gimmicks, put-on’s and media saturation into a three year span. We have seen her show up kite high, in meat dresses, with horns attached to her head, dressed as a man, with discharged gay soldiers as her escorts, etc., etc. The ‘shtick’ is old. There are only so many heavy-handed stunts you can use to dumbfound the public into noticing before they become either hostile or jaded, and a backlash ensues.

    Lady Gaga has always been a ‘character’ for show, but she has become a caricature and a parody of herself. No longer is it “refreshing,” abstract or inventive; it is now tired and dated. Overexposure is killing the cat and quite frankly Gaga is losing her relevance. By making herself into such a sneaky little cartoon who is force-fed to the public in obscene dosages, she has backed herself into a corner. The only thing left for her to do at this point is to throw on a pair of jeans and act normal, but how boring would that be for someone who named herself ‘Lady Gaga’ and made being strange her ticket to fame? She was here; she dominated the world of music and got her press, but the milk is now sour. The writing was on the wall when dowdily dressed and anything-but-flashy Adele c*** blocked what was supposed to be a Gaga-dominating 2011. Kids do not listen to her, it is not “cool” to be a walking freak show…and quite frankly it is not cool to like Lady Gaga now.

  23. Mafalo June 10, 2012

    Blah, blah, blah Gaga…what I wanna know is are you done trying to be Madonna’s Mini-Me? Find another pop icon to swaggerjack, please.

  24. dang June 10, 2012

    I was there! And that’s the first thing I thought of!

  25. Queen Navy June 10, 2012

    Whatever. Bogus attempt at trying to make herself seem like she’s taking the high road. Gaga was the one who started this whole “feud” in the first place by being a fake little copycat version of Madonna. The world was calling her out on it long before Madonna finally spoke up about it. Obviously her idol didn’t appreciate being impersonated like that. Yeah, just move on.

    • prettigurlrockD June 10, 2012

      LOL. It’s always the insecure navy ready to tear gaga’s head off.

    • Gaaglooo! June 10, 2012

      B**** You Can Be Mad That 4Y Of Gaga In The Undustry, S*** On The Goat Entire Career! Lady G Got More Respect Than Rih And Most Of People Already Recognize Her As A True Artist/Musician, Somthing Sluthanna Will Never See!:-) So Stay Pressed C***!

    • EBONY CLAWS June 11, 2012

      GaGa never has “fued” with anybody

      GaGa never copies anybody

      GaGa is a true icon, even if she releases million more “flop” albums. It’s not about sales anymore.

      and You’re just mad because SHE is the Queen of Pop, NOT RihTryLater

  26. B. Hill June 10, 2012

    Gaga is so fake.

    • Gaaglooo! June 10, 2012

      LLol Hope You are Not A Bey Fan’ Talking About Fake Haha!!

  27. Heh June 10, 2012

    Gaga’s just mad that BTW was a total disaster. It was supposed to dominate the music scene last year, but not only did it not do as well as FAME but Adele upstaged her something fierce. Then Madonna came out and lambasted her as being a song thief. Seems like Gaga has had a humbling past year, after beginning it in such a cocky ass way. Her tail is between her knees that’s why she doesn’t wanna fight back.

    Looks like those 15 minutes are finally winding down.

    • wendy June 10, 2012

      Just like Rita coming for Rihanna in that same manner

    • yeyay June 10, 2012

      Gaga can write, sing, produce, perform, and compose…She’ll be more than fine…..

  28. KatyCat (Bow to Slayty Perry) June 10, 2012

    Fake arrogant b****. Wasn’t she shading Britney last year about lip syncing even though she has done it herself?

    • EBONY CLAWS June 11, 2012

      A Kandy Tits Cherry fan talking about somebody being fake…

  29. My2Centz June 10, 2012

    Is she serious? Gaga has been advised by everyone in her camp how to handle this and they all agreed that for her to go on the defense and ‘fight back’ would just make her more ripe for ridicule, and that the safest thing for her to do would be to not do anything. This is not some heartfelt, modest decision on her part to not lash back.

    Gaga built her whole career on trying to imitate Madonna’s every move and gesture, then was bold enough to plagiarize one of her songs, assuming the world would either be too dumb to notice or too in love with her to care. But just for an extra bit of insurance, she decided to marinate it into some uber tacky gay-empowerment anthem; thinking that that would make it too sacred to knock. She was wrong. Now, after a year of being drug through the mud about it, she wants to feign taking the high road?

    B****, please.

    Gaga, dear, on your best day you are nothing but a 2% Los Vegas celebrity impersonator (and on your worse, you are akin to a downtown street urchin.) You have no style or character of your own. Everything about you is a reheated left over of something another pop star did before you, and better. And quite frankly, you stink. Your image is stupid and your music garbage.

  30. Mad-On-Her June 10, 2012

    I’m a huge Madonna fan – but am I the only person in the world (besides Gaga) who doesn’t think the songs sound that similar..? When I first heard BTW I thought it had a Madonna vibe to it, but I never thought it sounded like a rip off of Express Yourself, and I still don’t. She has, of course, visually ripped the Queen off countless times – and M’s influence can be seen heard in about half of all Lady G’s songs. But I still don’t think it’s a rip off.
    And how on earth are some people trying to paint BTW as a flop? It is the 2nd best selling album of last year – right? Does that mean only the best selling album of each year can be considered not a flop? Damn, you guys harsh – it’s a good job you don’t run record labels…. haha.
    I worry now that Lady Gaga is going to be so paranoid about not copying Madonna that it will make her next album s***. It’s obvious M’s influence has made her the pop star she is – which I think is great – so if he she tries to take that away from her music and image I’m not sure what she;ll be left with.

    • DMWN June 10, 2012

      BTW is a flop because it failed to at the very least match what The Fame did. They pumped mega millions into the recording and promotion of BTW, and it wound up moving about 5-6 million units less. Being the “2nd best selling album of the year” means nothing. The album failed to do what they were aiming for it to, and in the end they probably wound up in the red over it. That’s why they pulled promotion after less than a year and sent Gaga back into the studio so soon to follow it up. BTW only came last May, if it was successful, we’d still be hearing music from it.

      The album is a flop.

      • theman June 10, 2012

        It did not flop. It sold over 2.2 million in the states, it probably didn’t do what was expected but it was no flop.

      • Mad-On-Her June 11, 2012

        So every album MJ did after Thriller is a flop? Because it “failed to match” Thriller’s sales? The reason they stopped releasing music from BTW is because she was so over exposed people were starting to get sick of her, and the beginnings of a backlash were brewing. But that doesn’t mean BTW isn’t a huge success. Any artist in the world right now (bar Adele) would kill for those sales.

    • CzarM June 10, 2012

      Gaga’s whole career has been based on trying to *be* Madonna. If she removed all Madonna-like references from her presentation, she wouldn’t have much left. On the other hand, if she continues to steal Madonna’s look, presentation and music, she’ll become even more of a joke in the public eye.

      Hmmm. Dilemma, dilemma for Gag. She backed herself into a corner. It’s what happens when you build your house on sand. She should have been more original.

  31. LDR90 June 10, 2012

    True the Madonna shade is negative but there is also the boycott/ death threats over performing in Indonesian (which she canceled). All this & more could have come to her giving this statement. But I get it the website needs hits but I think her message is being taken out of context. She not addressing just Madonna just all the negativity that has been thrown at a artist of her caliber. I commend her but as for Madonna. Madonna has sold over 300 mill but she act like she only sold 300 copies. Maybe she is on her evil queen from snow white “mirror mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all” Mirror’s Answer: from 80’s -00 its been you but as far as 2008- beyond its GAGA B****” lol

  32. CeeJaye June 10, 2012

    I hate Gaga. Everything about Gaga is crap on a shingle. Right down to her stupid ass name “Lady Gaga”. WTF is a “Lady Gaga” supposed to be anyway???? Where’s GooGoo when you need him? She’s worthless and needs to go away.

    Lady Gaga is a corny “2.0” version Madonna.

      Nope, She’s Not Madonna 2.0! Maybe Marilyn M. 3.0 Since Madonna Is Marilyn 2.0:-) And I’m Madge’s Fan Since I Was 7Y, But I Didn’t Know That Her( Madonna) Styl Is So Weird And E.T.! Lol Lady G Styl Is More David Bowie And Grace Jones, Have A Sit Hater!!!

    Love Lady G, So Humble, The Smartest Girl In The Industry!!!!!!!

  36. dee June 10, 2012

    Janet never had beef with GaGa. She constantly gave her praise as a new artist.

  37. Fire/Ice June 10, 2012

    * shrugs *
    How could she defend herself anyway? She’s spent the past 4-5 years copying Madonna left, right and sideways. The difference is that in 2009-2010, she was still new and so people gave her a pass on it. She’s not new anymore and people are tired of her getup. No, I’m sure she doesn’t want to fight back, considering there’s nothing for her to say.

    Honestly, I’m just sick of Gaga. She’s been crammed down everybody’s throats long enough. Time to go purge and hopefully get back to when music used to be good, which was before her arrival…and she can take her classmates (Katy, Kesha, LMFAO) with her. I’m disgusted by the whole “pop” scene she led in and hold her personally responsible for the destruction of music today.

    • Gaaglooo! June 10, 2012

    I see this post coming, once again, Lady Gaga the victim, Madonna the villain, of course she won’t fight back because she knows what she did, How can’t she say that her fans don’t want her to fight when they are the first to insult and hate on everybody who dislike their Queen, i don’t want to be your Queen, i want to be your friend, LIE, it’s all a lie, a blatant lie, do you see the message behind Madonna when she was singing Express Yourself/ Born This Way, NO, take a look to that, Fernando Garibay said that everytime Madonna sing the song he gets paid, she knows about this, Madonna don’t make things without thinking, it’s all planned but of course Madonna is the devil and Lady Gaga is an angel, Lady Gaga started all this, she just play the good girl, i don’t believe she admire Madonna, i think she just want to be better than her, Britney, Kylie, Gwen Stefani and Christina really love Madonna and respect her, it’s not about being the best competitor for Madonna, i don’t think that’s the problem, because even Justin Bieber is competition for everybody these days, the problem is that Lady Gaga’s message is about equality love and her fans are the most horrible people on internet with everybody, they started a campaign against Madonna just months ago, you all forget about that, they hate Beyonce, Britney, Christina, Rihanna, Katy, Kesha and of course Madonna because she is the one that her Queen has copy more and that’s make them mad, say whatever you want but Madonna and not only her but other artists has all the right to diss Gaga because the woman is talented but the truth is that she is a Printer, oh! Thagrapejuice Please Debbie Harry REALLY, Madonna was inspired by Patti Smith, Debbie Harry and Chrissie Hynde, even in the her more recent interview with Anderson Cooper she say that those women were her Musical inspirations, Debbie Harry it’s ok with Madonna, unlike Gaga Madonna has created her own image, that’s why everybody call her The Queen of Reinvention because of her looks, f*** everybody, Madonna is a b**** and i love her for that, she has never been fake, Madonna is not a saint but she doesn’t try to have an innocent image like Gaga, thank God! people like Madonna exist, why people don’t hate Mariah Carey when she has shade almost everybody in the industry but when is Madonna she is the most horrible person, you know what is envy because she is in a place were her competitors can only dream to be, she’s not the most talented, her voice is not the best but she is the top of the line Queen only behind Men, the other bitter b****** are not even close to her, the Best selling Female Musician of all times, that hurts i know, deal with it.

      Beyonce doesn’t belong in the same sentence as Lady GaGa, Ke$ha, Rihanna, Katy Perry or Nicki Minaj. They all have more in common with each other than with Beyonce. And their genre is different from hers, and she is a better vocalist than all of them, but they’re all more of “it girls” at the moment than she is. Her “it girl” status was in 2003/2004

      • Suicide Blonde June 11, 2012

        little Monsters hates Beyonce too, that’s my point.

    • Miao June 11, 2012

      Drama! Draaaamaaa! It’s like Madonna is your best friend! Chill! It’s all about money! And you ain’t getting much of it..

      • Suicide Blonde June 11, 2012

        i’m tired of Madonna the Devil and Lady Gaga the Angel, one is very honest, way too much and the other one is very hypocrite.

    Humm… BLACK AMERICANS pay attention. I have yet to see a white american say…omg, as White women they need to do better. Why as white women do we have to tear each other down? Wonder why? smh internalized racism is what it is called. Wake up!

  41. Small_Angel June 10, 2012

    But isn’t it she teared down one artist in order for her to get known and be the Lady Gaga she is now today?

    I still remember all the paid press they had against an artist way back when she was still relatively unknown…

  42. Saetana June 11, 2012

    I’m not sure why everyone seems to be jumping to the conclusion that what she said is about Madonna – there was all the fuss over her show in the Far East, she may be talking about that, she hasn’t named names so don’t jump to conclusions! Even if it was about Madonna (and I don’t think it was only about her in any event – IF it was), it was done in a classy and ambiguous way. Madonna has no room to talk about theft as she has the long history of lawsuits behind her to prove her own theft. Gaga never stole Express Yourself’s chord progression because nobody owns chord progressions, not even Madonna. It was used in several songs back in the 70’s and 80’s long before Express Yourself came alone (check out Youtube for some interesting mashups with both songs and other songs that use the same chord progression). I had to listen really closely to find the similarity (and had to look up Express Yourself on Youtube as I couldn’t remember the song, despite being a teenager at the time), a tiny bit of the chorus sounds a bit like Express Yourself, big f****** deal! We’ve had 60 years of pop music, I hear a lot of songs that sound a bit like other songs but I don’t go around accusing them all of plagiarism, there are only so many notes and chords to use. If Madonna thought she had a leg to stand on regarding BTW/EY she would have sued Gaga like a shot, the fact that she didn’t says it all. Madonna was no innovator, she was just clever in finding things that were underground or hadn’t been done for a long time and making them hers, that is how Gaga is most like her. Where she isn’t like here is Gaga being a far superior musician, songwriter and singer to Madonna. Of course, Gaga being a fashion icon is hers alone, I can’t remember anything about Madonna other than the stupid cone bra/corset, she has had her day and ought to retire gracefully. Its not her age that is the problem, its the fact she has been putting out poorer and poorer material for the last decade, culminating in the clusterfuck that is MDNA.

    • Stephen June 11, 2012

      Not far superior singer though. Lady GaGa can sing a bit better than Madonna, not far better. And in general, neither of them are known for vocal capabilities. They’re entertainers, hence the theatrics they use in concert

      • Stephen June 11, 2012

        Miao, doesn’t matter anyway, because by and large, both of them don’t have enough vocal skills to win a singing competion

  43. Miguel June 11, 2012

    Um… she could be saying that about anyone

    What makes you think it was addressing Madonna?… Other than wanting to grab a soundbyte and fitting it to your convenience…

  44. Beyonce’s Weave June 11, 2012

    What is up with these old women (Madonna and Lil Kim)? Why cant they accept that they are old, ragging and stale and should retire to leave room for younger artists? These old bitter hags are getting on my last nerve.

  45. EBONY CLAWS June 11, 2012

    Mother of God!

    What part of “Nobody will ever be on Madonna’s lane” is the hardest to understand???

    Lady GaGa is a true Queen of Pop, but shouldn’t be mentioned with MADONNA in the same sentence.

  46. NAYAH82 June 11, 2012

    Good for her for taking the high road. I love Madge… But shading other singers is getting old quick.

  47. RoyalKev June 11, 2012

    I don’t have too much respect for Madonna (talent wise or even so much as a person). The only thing that’s superior about Madonna to Lady Gaga is her artistry, it isn’t as pretentious. They’re both “fearless” artists, but during Madonna’s time being so bold was actually more taboo and not egged on until Madonna really made a name for herself (that’s when she started getting away with murder).

    Gaga has to suck it up! I don’t care to defend Madonna, but she’s only speaking on what everyone of us is clearly observing: Gaga’s ripping off Madonna’s image. Why is it wrong for her to speak up about it? The rules people make up are so unfair, any other artist would be accused of being way too inspired if they incorporate ideas. Here, we have Gaga walking around trying to emulate every phase of Madge’s career and people are attacking Madonna for being “bitter”. In some of Gaga’s videos she looked like the woman’s spitting image. It’s such hypocrisy, because alot of people jump down Beyonce’s throat for dancing next to a group of men (like New Edition), and we strike out against Rihanna for her flaws (lazy performances, awkward dancing), Chris Brown (lipping) and the list goes on. Lady Gaga just blantantly gets a pass, when she was the cocky one (getting a big head not so long ago) attacking Britney and Xtina and maaaaany others.

    I don’t turn blind eye to people like that. Gaga lied about receiving Madonna’s approval in e-mails and made up bogus claims pretending to have written a song for Whitney that easily mimicked Madonna’s work (EY). It’s now her turn to defend her truth (under the pack of lies she’s fed the world). Maybe her best resolution for this matter is for her to simply be herself. it’s time for her to find her inner Stefani.

      Just brilliant.

  48. Nick June 11, 2012

    U better preach GaGa., spoken like a true lady with class., love it!!!!

  49. Mad-On-Her June 11, 2012

    Gaga was obviously referring to the Madonna thing. She specifically referenced the song Born This Way in the full quote alongside comments about negativity which make it pretty obvious. It must be upsetting for Gaga because if the song does rip off EY (which I still don’t think it does) then it was obviously not intentional. As if she would sit in her studio thinking ‘I’m sure no one will notice this…’ There are many times in history when artists have ripped a song off without realising. Mick Jagger once paid royalties to KD Lang for her song after realising he’d copied it without meaning to. And for Gaga to then be made fun of for it by the artist who inspires her the most must be a slap in the face. But I still love Madonna for doing it as I think she’s just having fun, laughing along with the joke – I doubt she’s taking it very seriously. Gaga I think maybe takes herself a little bit too seriously, especially since Born This Way came out. I hope her next album is along the lines of Heavy Metal Lover and Government Hooker – more just silliness. She doesn’t have to change the world, just make some good music.

  50. Whut June 11, 2012

    Lol flopdonna and her fans are mad because MDOA was/is the biggest disaster in history, so theyre taking their anger out on Gaga. BTW sold 2 million & had 4 top 10 hits. MDOA didn’t even go gold & every single flopped hard. And they wanna call BTW a flop? LOL It wasnt even close to that MegaFlop called MDOA. Gaga is doing the right thing. Madonnasaur is the one who looks bitter, desperate, and pathetic, just like her fans.

  51. EBONY CLAWS June 11, 2012

    @ Whut

    As if she still got a s*** to give on sales after what she’s been through.. Girl BYE

  52. Uhoh12 June 11, 2012

    Born This Way FLOPPED and you all know it. MDNA is Madonna’s 12th album and she already sold over 375 million records and is the biggest selling female artist of all time. She can afford to flop at this point. BTW was Gaga’s 2nd and already she’s stalling in sales. Gaga’s supposed to be the hottest star on the planet right now, but the trick’s b******* album only sold 2 million US? F*** is THAT s***? Gaga peaked MUCH sooner than Madonna did. When Madonna was at the stage Gaga’s at right now, she was selling 20 million per album and no other female was bigger.

  53. Wside5678 June 11, 2012

    Gaga is a wannabe, a song thief and a loser. No wonder countries are threatening to kill the weird b**** if she dare brings her shitty ass copycat self to their stage. They don’t want her and neither do I.

    #Go away Gaga. It’s already been done before. You’re pointless.

  54. Shymir06 June 11, 2012

    Can’t stand Lady Gaga at all. I don’t like her music (cheesy, obnoxious, yet still oddly generic)…her fans (referring to oneself as a “monster” is inane)…her name (Lady Gaga is a totally stupid moniker)…or her face (self-explanatory.) She doesn’t want to fight back because she can’t. She created this mess by trying to be Madonna’s mime and now finally she’s been knocked down about 10 pegs. I’m stoked that Adele came along and made her irrelevant. Nobody is checking for Gaga anymore. She’s a retarded cartoon character from 2010.

  55. Absolved June 11, 2012

    Someone who is insane enough to wear meat for clothes can’t fight back against anything. TrannyGag is a psycho fruitcake to the inf degree.

  56. acem June 11, 2012

    Freak show Gaga: Copycat Pop Star.

    Instead of carving out her own lane, and creating her own thing, she opted to take the lazy route by treading in Madonna’s grooves. I have no respect for wannabe’s, pretenders and frauds like Stephanie. She’s the epitome of the word ‘phony.’

    Yeah, don’t bother to fight back Gaga, just take a seat — no better yet, take a 30 year nap and let the music world recovery from your oddball fakery.

  57. DJ TAJ June 11, 2012

    Oh please… She was taking about the message of Born This Way in relation to the gay community and negativity related to that! Once again the writer of this blog is really reaching and jumping to conclusions to create an interesting story to write about. Pass… I didn’t hear anything that sounded like a reference to Madonna calling her out. And if she was referring to that (which I doubt) she shouldn’t “fight back” because she knows in her heart that she completely rips off of Madonna left and right and Born This Way was the final straw for Madge!! Madonna is entitled to call her out as far as I am concerned!

  58. Belladonna June 11, 2012

    I LOVE HERE and know matter how hard you try REAL LOVE will always win!!!! SO f*** all the hateful people on this site and in the world SAY WHAT YOU WANT BUT HATE WILL NEVER WIN!!!! LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE WILL!!!!!!!

  59. Tbozfan10 June 12, 2012

    Wow. Just wow! That statement by gaga actually had NOTHING to do with Madonna!! Lmao. She was talking about gay bullying.
