Lady Gaga Suffers Twitter Attack For Implying Madonna Doesn’t Write Or Play Instruments

Has Gaga Reignited Beef Between Herself and the Material Girl?


“Madonna and I are very different…”

While she is best known for her theatrical and (at times) over the stop stage shows and music videos, Queen of Pop Madonna has seen her name line the credits of multiple multiplatinum albums as a contributing songwriter over her 30+ year career.  Recently nominated for induction to the 2017 Songwriters Hall of Fame, the Grammy winner’s live stage shows over the same three decade period have seen her play drums, bass guitar, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, and even a ukelele.

For this reason fans of the iconic pop star were none-too-pleased with Lady Gaga after the ‘Bad Romance’ beauty’s bad choice of words in a recent interview seemed to imply the Material Girl doesn’t write her own material:

Madonna and I are very different. Just saying. I wouldn’t make that comparison at all and I don’t mean to disrespect Madonna. She’s a nice lady and she’s had a fantastic huge career. She’s the biggest pop star of all time, but I play a lot of instruments. I write all my own music. I spend hours and hours a day in the studio. I’m a producer. I’m a writer. What I do is different.

Needless to say, the quote did not fall on deaf ears.  In fact, if the Twitter response is anything to judge by, the 30-year-old singer may have reignited the beef between herself and her nearly 60-year-old counterpart:

Retro Rewind: Billboard Hot 100 This Week in 1997 #TBT

Mary J. Blige’s ‘Everything’ Enjoys Hot 100 Peak

Readers of That Grape Juice know what avid music lovers we are – especially of hits past.

So, just as our retrospective features ‘From the Vault’ and ‘TGJ Replay’ allow us the chance to re-spin the gems and jams of yesterday of one artist, our newest feature Chart Rewind – a variation of our current Retro Rewind assay – accedes salutes to an entire era of music history.

This week we’re getting everything we need and more from ‘Everything’ – the third single from Mary J. Blige‘s 3x platinum third studio album ‘Share My World.’  The Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis produced cut, which famously samples ‘You Are Everything’ [The Stylistics], was accompanied by one of the Grammy winner’s most memorable visuals – a Hawaiian themed clip helmed by hit video director Hype Williams.  Helping it reach its Hot 100 peak of #24 this week 19 years ago, the song is an enduring fan favorite from Blige’s catalog and is undoubtedly a “must hear” on her ‘King & Queen’ tour with fellow R&B royal Maxwell [click here to read more] .

Check in below to see how joined the Queen of Hip Hop Soul in reigning over the Billboard Hot 100’s upper rankings this week in 1997:

Competition: Win A Free Copy of Lady Gaga’s New Album ‘Joanne’

Grammy Winner’s 5th Album Charges Onto Physical and Digital Shelves October 21st


Having heard Lady Gaga‘s new album, ‘Joanne,’ we can think of a million reasons (all pun intended) why you should buy it.

A collection of masterfully crafted tunes that sees Gaga finally press pause on the gimmicks and shine a much-deserved spotlight on her oft-praised (and envied) vocals, the songbird takes flight on many of the “stripped” numbers that line this, her fifth album.  Granted, we’re real enough to say the set may disappoint fans expecting a “return to form” of sorts of the ‘Poker Face’ performer who once filled her albums with party-starting dance tracks and thunderous bass-buoyed bops (evidence of this can be found on the project’s official releases to date – ‘A-Yo,’ ‘Million Reasons,’ and, of course, ‘Perfect Illusion’).  However, instead of alienating fans of the original Mother Monster, ‘Joanne’ goes left and simply invites listeners in on yet another peek at her artistic maturity – a rollercoaster of a listen that features highs like ‘Come To Mama,’ ‘Diamond Heart,’ and the Florence Welch-assisted ‘Hey Girl.’

But, if you are the type that isn’t really easily convinced, let That Grape Juice help you out by gifting you a free copy of the highly anticipated project.  All you have to do is…
