Madonna has already expressed her disapproval of Lady Gaga’s imitations of her work but she is taking things a step further with her world tour. The Queen of Pop has prepared a special performance for the shows, which will include a medley of her younger counterpart’s ‘Born this Way’.
Gaga was accused of copying the arrangement of Madonna’s ‘Express Yourself’ for her monster hit ‘Born this Way’. So, launching head on into the controversy that made her famous, Madonna has arranged a mashup of ‘Born this Way’ and ‘Express Yourself’ as well as ‘She’s Not Me’ from her ‘Hard Candy’ album.
Watch Madonna, a 53-year old mother, rehearse her Gaga diss below:
Normally, this type of behaviour would have triggered a rant but this is Madonna. She based her entire career on controversy and battling other artists – Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey – so we should have expected this nonsense. Let’s see if it helps her to sell ten more copies of ‘M.D.N.A.’, which has thus far sold less that 470K copies in the US since March 26th.
