In the feud that will likely never end, Madonna took another jab at Lady Gaga at her Los Angeles opening of her MDNA tour.
To yet again prove that her hit “Express Yourself,” is the inspiration for Gaga’s “Born This Way,” Madonna mashed up the songs and sang to the crowd, “She’s not me.”
Celebuzz reports that a video flashed on the screen of L.A.’s Staples Center, Madonna appears in similar clothes as what Gaga would wear and announces to the crowd “I’m going to say this one time. I don’t give a sh*t.”
Meanwhile, Gaga has responded, saying “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.”
She went on to say, “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 different place and it’s OK, we don’t have to all slice and hate each other anymore.”
A Los Angeles Times review of the concert described that by incorporating the mash-up, it shows how “Madonna has embraced her pop offspring.”
What do you think, was it another jab or was Madonna embracing Gaga?
