Lady GaGa: “Madonna & Michael Jackson Inspired ‘Born This Way'”

Published: Sunday 29th May 2011 by Sam

Do you hear Madonna or Michael Jackson on Lady GaGa‘s new album? Because she does.

The Pop eccentric made the interesting claim during an interview with Stephen Fry for the Financial Times. In the insightful feature, she also discusses money meaning nothing to her, her fans and more.

Excerpts after the jump…

Via our good friends over at GaGa Daily:

On money:
“It’s honestly true that money means nothing to me. The only big things I’ve purchased are my dad’s heart valve and a Rolls-Royce for my parents, for their anniversary. And that was only because my dad had a Lady Gaga licence plate on our old car and it was making me crazy because he was getting followed everywhere, so I bought him a new car. Other than that I put everything in the show, and I actually went bankrupt after the first extension of The Monster Ball.”

On fans:
“I sent them hot chocolate yesterday, and macaroons, and then today I had press all day and I felt a bit bad because I wouldn’t have much of a chance to go down and say hello. But I did manage to go down and brought them some fresh cookies and flowers. Little Monsters are a community. It’s kind of nice that wherever I go they create a little home for me.

On Madonna:
“I genuinely love her so much. I think she is so amazing. She could never be replicated and, yes, I’m Italian, I’m from New York, and not for nothing, it’s not my fault that I kind of look like her, right? So, look, if anything, it’s more annoying to me that people would insinuate that I don’t like to be compared to her… She’s wonderful and inspiring and liberating, and she’s certainly inspired my (‘Born This Way’) album, as did David Bowie, as did Prince, as did Michael Jackson, as did Grace Jones, and I would never take that away.”

While the Madonna similarities are at times uncanny, she lost yours truly with the Michael reference. Then again, what’s a GaGa interview without the random wackiness…

Classic.

  6. Kerry Johnson May 29, 2011

    BTW isnt even epic!!!!!!

    Rihanna’s LOUD>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Beyonce 4>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Gaga

  7. Ghetto Fab May 29, 2011

    At least she mentioned Grace Jones, who despite her not really digging her still inspired the album. Hell Grace Jones inspired Madonna’s ass as well. So let’s not be delayed gals.

    I don’t see why it’s hard for people to see why she thanked Whitney Houston. She has the best vocals of all time. Everyone imagines they are Whitney for a second.

  8. BADDEST CHICK May 29, 2011

    Well from the album you can tell she inspired by those artists. Lady Gaga slowly becoming an legend in the music industry. She’s #1 worldwide and going to sell 1 million.

    @Kerry

    Lady Gaga is not a flop. She’s the most successful artist this year so far. BTW, if that you in your pic then your s***. Those lips yum.

    So this h** is going to tell the truth next time & say she was inspired by Ashton Kutchers punked show because she really has been copying her whole music career through!

    Sorry! Had to repost this because the previous post has mistakes! All her songs sounds the same! I like Edge of glory! That’s all otherwise this b**** needs to take a seat! Born this way single was inspired by Madonna Express yourself & Christina Aguilera Beautiful.

  11. WHYtheHateVusilovesB May 29, 2011

    Lady gaga is kinda fake and delusional yawn but I still like her

  12. C May 29, 2011

    I would actually like to retract that comment :-s

  13. Kerry Johnson May 29, 2011

    I think born this way is her best song this era.

  14. kelly May 29, 2011

    on her mtv special this week, gaga did mention whitney again:

    ‘I Wasn’t A Little Girl In That Mirror I Was Whitney Houston In The Bodyguard!’ @LadyGaga

    “imagine whitney houston and Bruce springsteen had a baby… that’s what it was! that’s it.” – @ladygaga (this about ‘marry the night’ song)

    her song’ fashion of his love’ is a straight whitney rip off of ‘i wanna dance’

  15. REALTALK 101 May 29, 2011

    GaGa is very successful at getting silly people to follow her but in terms of adding something significant to pop music “she is a complete failure!!!!!! If Michael didnt think much of Madonna he certainly wouldn’t think much of a weak ass Madonna clone. Can’t be mad at GaGa’a nerve and energy but this chic is a nothing more than a big gimmick.

  16. Kerry Johnson May 29, 2011

    whitney influence ofn ‘fashion of his love’

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZv-yVuvFi4

    But Lady Gaga does have one weakness: the studio album. She is a talented singer and her 2009 Cherrytree Sessions EP features an incredibly moving acoustic version of “Poker Face” that should shut up any music snobs who think she’s all show. But her full albums have always fallen a little flat. On her third album, Born This Way, she relies too heavily on synthesizers and vocal effects, which smooth out all her rough edges until she sounds like a Eurodance version of Madonna (“Scheiße”), Sister Sledge (“Born This Way”) or early Whitney Houston (“Fashion of His Love”).

    http://newsfeed.time.com/2011/05/23/album-review-is-lady-gagas-born-this-way-as-interesting-as-her-outfits/#ixzz1NDm0lVrG

    AP
    Lady Gaga releases ‘Fashion of His Love,’ a Whitney Houston-esque ’80s retro dance track from her ‘Born This Way’ album, ahead of its official release on Monday, May 23.

    http://blog.music.aol.com/2011/05/19/lady-gaga-fashion-of-his-love/ADVERTISEMENT

    Gaga sings about finding love she never knew before on this track that is, as PopDust astutely points out, basically a take on Whitney Houston’s 1987 hit “I Wanna Dance With Somebody”. Ripping off Madonna is so three months ago!

    Well, this at least makes much more sense why Gaga thanked Whitney at the Grammys when accepting the award for Best Pop Vocal Album. “I wanted to thank Whitney because when I wrote Born this Way,” she told the crowd. “I imagined she was singing it — because I wasn’t secure enough in myself to imagine I was a superstar. So, Whitney, I imagined you were singing Born This Way when I wrote it.”

    WHAT’S THE PROBLEM WITH THE ALBUM BEING INSPIRED BY JACKSON AND HOUSTON? ARE THEY UNTOUCHABLE FOR GAGA?

    THEY ARE SINGERS SHE GREW UP WITH. IT’S OBVIOUS SHE LEARNED SOMETHING FROM THEM.

    ANYWAY, GAGA HAS A V*****, THEREFORE SHE’S COPYING MADONNA.

  53. Pk May 29, 2011

    Ii like Lady Gaga and some of her songs but the Madonna copy cat thing in getting old. I agree her song Fashion of his love sounds like Whitney Houston and You and I sounds like a Kid Rock song. It’s one thing to be Inspired but to steal a bit from each artist and try and make it your own lacks any originality at all.

  54. Pk May 29, 2011

    No wonder she thanked Whitney Houston at the Grammys as a source of inspiration she was doing damage control after the Madonna express
    Yourself rip off she didn’t want ro be accuses
    Of copying someone else yet again.

    You readers (and writers) are so f****** stupid ….you use every chance you can to attack The queen. she is amazing and perfection and a little crazy..but aren’t we all. u stupid b****** are so quick to judge her that u dont even use common sense … you dont have to hear inspiration you stupid moronic small minded b**** …she could have thought during her process of assembling the album i want this to be as epic and amazing as Michael jacksons thriller or Madonnas albums but No you think it has to sound like Michael jackson… We all use inspiration differently. either way if she says it we have No reason to assume other wise…stop being stupid small minded people and stop bashing Her… your are lucky somebody wanted to use that cancerous decrepit corpse as inspiration for something other than Molesting small white children….. She is being who she is your just stupid hateful small minded insecure f****** losers and all the people who have hate to throw at her …call her names, Claim she is copying Madonna ….your mothers will soon be killed … and your granparents and best friends …well thats a bit harsh …so umm well… you just need to get it together and stop hating on others Via computer your cowards…

  60. Anna May 29, 2011

    Don’t like, don’t like her at all. BIZAR!

  61. Gabs May 29, 2011

    I think what gaga is trying to say is that she is inspired by ALL the legends that came before her. Everyone is. If you actually listen to her album (like I did) ..you CAN hear both whitney and madonna and michael inspired moments. As well as Prince and Queen. Every artist is inspired by whoever ruled their childhood. I dont get why everyone is so negative to gaga about this. “Fashion of his love” and “Marry the night” are very Whitney-like! She doesnt blatantly copy though, she puts a Gaga twist on it. Idk I love the album.

  62. antonio May 29, 2011

    I definitely heard the influence of Madonna and Michael Jackson on the album. But either way, Born This Way easily stands alone as its own separate body of work, even with the influence of those two. I also heard a little of Whitney Houston, Grace Jones and David Bowie as well. I don’t know what makes people think that Born This Way wasn’t gonna sell over 500K in the first week anyway. Her promotional and marketing campaign was huge over the past 3 months, so I knew she was gonna do at least 750K in the first week anyway, like for real, how many artists sell over 750K with their 2nd album, only a select handful have done that. Born This Way is going to be the highest selling album of 2011 just like The Fame was the highest selling of 2009. I am pretty sure Born This Way will sell at least 12.5 million WW. And on top of all that, Born This Way is actually a very good album. People just got so caught in the hype of Gaga saying its gonna be the album of the decade, which it clearly is not, but its better than most of the Pop albums released over the past year by Rihanna, Katy Perry, Kesha, Adam Lambert, Susan Boyle. Only Adele has an equal or greater Pop album out right now. My faves from the album are Born This Way, Marry the Night, Judas, The Edge of Glory, Heavy Metal Lover, Black Jesus, Highway Unicorn, Hair, Government Hooker, Bloody Mary, Schiess and Americano. I will give the album an 9/10, I feel some of the songs were overproduced like Marry the Night, The Edge of Glory and Government Hooker and I also feel that some of the songs are a little inconsistent like Americano, Electric Chapel and Bloody Mary, but overall, next to Adele’s 21, Born This Way is the best album of the year.

  63. QUEEN BEYONCE STANN May 29, 2011

    The Only Decent Song From Born This Way Is Shiebe & That’s About It. ( Most Of It Is In German & You Can’t Understand The Horrible Lyrics)

    Michael Jackson said he liked Lady Gaga, and recommended her music to Travis Payne, his choreographer. She was set to open for him in London.

  67. Ray May 29, 2011

    Lady Gaga is inspired by prince & madonna without a doubt even on a business sense the way she does things she is very smart like Prince & Madonna in terms of being commercial and reaching out to be people i love the BORN THIS WAY album its very 1990s TECHNO (Schieb) (Government Hooker) (Heavy Metal Lover) which i would dance at clubs to IN THE 1990s when i was a teenager and 1980s electropop which is very Prince Madonna Michael Jackson & Whitney Houston she is correct about her influences….

  83. Robert May 29, 2011

    In a story related by Travis Payne, Michael Jackson’s choreographer, over 2 years ago when they were discussing who Mike wanted to collaborate with during the ‘This Is It’ concerts, Travis was tossing out different names such as Barbra Streisand, Madonna and other legends. Michael Jackson suggested to Travis Payne a brand new, barely known artist named Lady Gaga. Lady Gaga was Michael’s first choice to collaborate with on one of the shows. Michael Jackson loved theatre, he loved avant garde, he kept up with new artists like any hungry, driven new artist. Michael Jackson relished collaboration and rarely uttered a single level of arrogance towards any artist. But he was competitive because he wanted to be the best. I’m not a huge Gaga fan, and I am an American gay man who went with a friend to see her show in London. Michael Jackson saw in her the spectacle of her performance pieces………he loved artists who brought something special to the mix. Michael Jackson doesn’t get his due: on under-appreciated albums such as Invincible, Michael Jackson continued to offer his genius. Michael was torn down by people to the point that when he took 5 years off to raise his children, he actually didn’t believe people would still want to see his show! He would love it to know that Gaga is giving him the praise he deserved, and the praise and respect that so many American’s forgot to give him during his life while he was being lied about and torn to pieces. RIP MICHAEL………I love you and miss you.

  84. jamie May 29, 2011

    Gaga you have done it again.This album is epic and a masterpiece.its completely different from the Fame, The Fame Monster. I like how you have evolved as a person and it shows that you can sing different styles of music and melodies. You have the best voice ever in the world. For example the acoustic version – ‘the edge of glory’, u sang live. It shows your strong vocals. Your is amazing. Once again I love ‘you and i’. You sang it brilliant. All your songs on BTW is amazing. As an artist its great to show of how you can sing with different styles of music. Gaga has done this very well. She hasn’t stuck to her old music, thats what other artists do which sometimes can get boring. This music is new. Never let anyone bring you down. You were born this way!! I just love this album. I love the beats and everything to it. love u gaga!! xxxx Thankyou for creating a masterpiece and epic album.

  85. KERRY JOHNSON IS A FA$$OT May 29, 2011

    Shut up your troll FA%. I am not talking in any disrespect for the gay community but for you looking like the biggest piece of crap on here. Lady Gaga just sent those chicks who can’t go diamond to save their lives a welfare check. Born This Way will be the biggest album worldwide just like The Fame Monster was in 2010. GAGA is queen. Big headed Rihanna the robot or Shi$ney Spears….hell even Madonna can’t touch GAGA right now/.

  86. Justin May 29, 2011

    ALBUM OF THE YEAR!!!

    This album is amazing…..ShieBe, Marry The Night, Bloody Mary, Bad Kids, Electric Chapel, Edge Of Glory, etc. make these other girls look like little a$$ girls. This is IT!

    I hear Michael, Pat Benetar and GAGA influences..lol

    Lady Gaga is the queen..bow down bitC$.

  87. iLoveXtina May 29, 2011

    I actually like her album, well about 10 tracks the rest are bleh

  88. True Blue May 29, 2011

    I really like how the negative Madonna comparisons haven’t made Gaga disown her as an inspiration altogether. She’s not denying it, she’s not running from it, so all you people calling her a copycat can lay off her. It’s not like she EVER claimed to be original or not take from Madonna.

    That being said, I definitely don’t hear MJ, Prince or Whitney on the album, but sometimes there are certain things you don’t hear in the music until much later on, so….

    @ Queen Beyonce Stan:

    I’ll give you credit for at least being more fair to her than @S*** (even if it’s only by a little bit). Now if you admit to liking Scheisse, then perhaps there’s a chance you’ll learn to like at least a few more songs on the album? 🙂

  89. Madonnalover May 29, 2011

    Of course she was inspired by momma pop.
    She’s been inspired by momma pop her whole career. Now she finall wants to admit it.
    Whelp.

  90. wow May 29, 2011

    SHE JUST INSULTED MADONNA BY SAYING THEY LOOK ALIKE.

  91. NaQu May 29, 2011

    Fake ass Madonna copycat/wannabe. I don’t respect people who have no swag of their own (and who sell their albums for $.99)

  92. PJ May 29, 2011

    Michael Jackson went to the Academy Awards with Madonna but it’s pretty well known he didn’t care for her on a personal level. He knew show business and how to generate buzz, and THAT’s probably why he looked at Gaga to open his shows. By no means does that equate to a “stamp of approval” for her or her music.

  93. the biggest mess on earth is Lady Caca and her poor sheep May 29, 2011

    I’m sick and tired of seeing this b*tches ugly@** face everywhere and hearing her stupid retarded voice + lyrics and all of Lady Caca’s stupid, ignorant, bald, UGLY@** fans talk about her troll@** all the time.

    I wish the entire media, Lady caca’s team and all her fans would disappear to another planet with all that sh*t.

    Lady Caca is an annoyance of epic proportions. Like a stupid mosquito that refuses to leave the television, radio, magazine covers and mall posters alone.

    I want the stupid Lady caca puppet and all her sheeple monster fans to go somewhere else! GEEZ!

    Gaga is only a joke, her music is not and would be not timeless.

    I guess you guys don’t know a whole about her or Michael Jackson. Lady Gaga was going to headline the show for Michael at the O2 arena. So he obviously liked her and she him.

    How did the Michael reference lose you? In the beginning of Bad Kids she basically recites the very beginning of They Don’t Care About us, with a few extra things added/taken out. You either aren’t familiar with all of Michael’s work (you probably only like Thriller), or you didn’t actually pay attention to Gaga’s lyrics.

    I can’t with this woman using any random legend to bridge a gap between her looney madness and their genius. Whitney – she is not! MJ – she is not either! She’s not even Madonna! Gaga is really a blatant liar. I just need to be sincere for a damn day! She
