Madonna Backs Down / Praises Lady GaGa

Published: Tuesday 12th Jun 2012 by David

She may be the Queen of Pop ,but even Madonna has to give credit when it’s due.

Currently engaged in a ‘feud’ with her Pop daughter Lady GaGa, this week saw the Oscar winning  ‘Take A Bow‘ icon share her thoughts on GaGa’s talent- after labeling her unoriginal following ‘Express This Way’ Gate.

Full story below…

During an interview with Italy’s ‘Republica’, Madonna was asked:

Is Lady GaGa a threat or only another temporary “spice girl”?

Then, after her agent tried to divert the line of questioning back to her tour, the ‘Material Girl’ admitted:

She is an artist with a great, high level of talent.

The release of her remarks lands two days after her rival addressed the matter during a ‘Born This Way’ Ball in New Zealand, which saw her admit that she had no intentions of ‘fighting back’.

It should be noted that the ‘Republica‘ interview may have been taken before GaGa response and the launch of the ‘MDNA’ Tour, which sees Madonna perform a mash up of her ‘Express Yourself’ and Germanotta’s ‘Born This Way‘.

    The entire MDNA era has revolved around Gaga. It’s insane and I feel like this is Madonna’s way of passing the torch onto Gaga. There’s no way Madonna would stoop so low if she truly disliked Gaga. Maybe she’s testing Gaga to see if Gaga can take, and so far, Gaga’s been taking it like a champ.

    @benron lady gaga does have grammy’s** 5 to be exact!

  5. JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) June 12, 2012

    Meaning Spice Girls were a joke (or Britney Spears) and Gaga is talent. I have to agree with Madonna. Both have talent and their own artistry, I think it would be good to stop it here, specially for Madonna 🙂

  6. CAREERENDER June 12, 2012

    So Gaga has 5 grammys after 2.5 albums and Rihanna has 5 after 5 albums? Well am just saying

    • Ugh June 12, 2012

      and most of em she’s a featured artist. I’m just saying.

    • Virtuoso Intellect June 12, 2012

      Most of them for being a hook girl lol

      • Kyria June 12, 2012

        LMAO 😆

    • Stephen June 12, 2012

      Not that the number of grammys actually matter, but no, Rihanna doesn’t have 5 grammys, she has over 10 grammys attached to her name, either as a lead artist or featured artist

      • Virtuoso Intellect June 12, 2012

        No she doesnt rihanna has 6. Only 2 for her own songs, 2 for run this town and 2 for all of the lights. There’s no such thing as attached to her name. The grammys are explicit about who gets what in each category. She doesnt have enough to lose count of and droppin that bogus lie “over 10”. Shady tactic

      • Stephen June 12, 2012

        Virtuoso, google “rihanna’s awards and nominations”, and you will be surprised

    • Teacher June 12, 2012

      How many does Brandy have? Whitney Houston? Mariah? etc. After how many albums? You tried to make a point and #FAILED miserably! LOL smh

    • BENTLEY MUSIC June 12, 2012

  7. Gaaglooo! June 12, 2012

    i’m so over those 2 fighting then making up then fighting then making up again ..

    and i know Madonna got nothing to worry about , she’s already in history books , so ..

    i like them both ‘ maybe madonna more , but still … ” , and i know “Madonna” respect gaga as a talented artist , but not her work when it is copied from her ……..

    she just wish GaGa never Touched her known stuffs , but Madonna did it all , so no matter what , it will appear as if someone is copying her even when it is not the case , talk about the queen of re-invention and versatility 😉

    so … if Chris brown and rihanna could have made a duet while being .. ” well , you all know it ” !!

    can we have A DUET between those pop royals ? 😀
    i will support this one 🙂

    #RANDOM : has anyone beside me noticed that in the ” Express yourself/born this way video” madonna made fun of little monsters ?
    like she brought a lil cartoon of little monsters eat canned food with madonna’s famous antics “pony tail” and ” cone bra” and bowie’s famous “bolt” sign on the labels ? as if little monsters know nothing about past music icons and that they don’t know lady gaga is just a xerox !!!

    i don’t know , but when i was in the concert , this is how i saw it !!

    i do Not wanna see neither BEYONCE or RIHANNA in this post. cuz they are IRRELEVANT to this post.

  11. S****** Blonde June 12, 2012

    It’s all planned, Madonna has praised Gaga before, in her interview when she was in the Graham Norton Show, i think people just love to hate Madonna because she’s more arrogant and way too much honest but Hey! it’s what makes her Madonna.

  12. Tbozfan10 June 12, 2012

    Gaga looks like a really really bad 1992 Madonna impersonater in that picture. Are u sure that’s even gaga? It looks like this drag queen I saw doing trying really hard to out-Madonna Madonna in a contest.

  13. Xadax June 13, 2012

    High level of talent… of copying other artists.
