Madonna Finally Talks About Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’ [VIDEO + POLL]
It’s been almost a full year since Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” was released. The second you heard the song, you knew it sounded familiar. The second time you heard it you knew it was a rip off of Madonna’s “Express Yourself.”
Lady Gaga herself was not happy when fans started suggesting she stole the song from Madonna. Gaga has been compared to Madonna several times with Madonna herself never speaking up, until now.
In an interview with “Newsweek” Madonna agreed that “Born This Way” sounds way to similar to “Express Yourself.”
“When I first heard ‘Born This Way’ I thought, ‘What a wonderful way to redo my song.’ I mean, I recognized the chord changes. I thought it was . . . interesting.”
Is that a backhanded compliment there Madonna? Wonderful way to redo my song is friendly chit chat. Songs have been re-done before, but at least Gaga changed the lyrics. Then Madonna goes on to say it was ‘interesting.’ That sounds like fighting words. Can’t wait to hear what Gaga has to say about this comment!
So who’s song do you like better? Madonna or Lady Gaga? Check out a mash-up of the two songs and take the poll below.
