While still at war with fellow diva Elton John, Queen of Pop Madonna is still finding time to make digs at pop princess Lady Gaga.
As fans long know, the ‘Vogue’ hitmaker notoriously referenced Gaga as being ‘reductive’ in her ‘Born This Way’ spin on Madge’s 1989 hit ‘Express Yourself’ – later claiming its the 2011 track was inspired by Whitney Houston.
A statement which led the pop icon to include a thinly veiled attack to her young counterpart by performing a ‘She’s Not Me/Express Yourself/Born This Way’ mash-up in her own show.
Last night, at a stop in Atlantic City on her highly successful ‘MDNA World Tour’, Madge dedicated a performance of the Golden Globe-winning song ‘Masterpiece’ (from ‘W.E.’) and sent the crowd into a frenzy when she made this announcement:

If Madonna was being serious about a pending collabo with Gaga has obviously yet to be seen, however, given Madge’s incessant references of the ‘Poker Face’ performer, we are sure it’s sarcasm. Gaga, if at fault or not, has continuously been mum about the situation, while her older counterpart has only made herself seem that much more pressed at the occasion.
Yes, we get it…but after 3000th mention, it just makes Madonna look desperate for attention. A trait some will argue has been the case her entire career (see: slams of Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey, Cher, etc), but ironically has never been a necessity. Both stars are on sold-out world tours with Madge’s being forecast to be the best-selling of any solo act in history.
Aren’t the days for intentional courting of catty attention done? Either way, tell us:
