Lady Gaga Fires Back at Madonna After “Born This Way” Diss
Pop Queen Lady Gaga has finally addressed a certain someone who has been making a “mockery” of her work recently.
During her concert in New Zealand last week, the singer told her fans:
“It sometimes makes people feel better about themselves, you know, to put other people down, or make fun of them, or maybe make mockery of their work and that doesn’t make me feel good at all. I don’t even want to fight back because it’s more important to me to keep writing music. Because that’s really all I care about, is the music.
“Things are really different than they were 25 years ago, and that’s what makes ‘Born This Way’ so relevant for me. We’re socially in a completely different place and it’s OK.”
The indirect comment was obviously aimed at pop icon Madonna, but Gaga was not specific.
Her statement come after Madge has been performing a mash-up of Gaga’s single “Born This Way” with her smash 1989 hit “Express Yourself” on every night of her “MDNA” tour. Gaga was widely criticized for ripping off Madonna’s 1989 hit single.
When asked about the similarities between the two songs, Madge said in an interview with 20/20 earlier this year, “I thought this is a wonderful way to redo my song … I mean, I recognized the chord changes. I thought it was …interesting.”
