There’s been a lot of back and forth between pop divas Madonna and Lady Gaga, with Madge throwing the hardest punches. For her latest MDNA tour, Madonna added Gaga’s hit “Born This Way” into a mash-up of her song “Express Yourself,” which she and many of her fans saw as a ripoff of EY. Gaga took some time during a show for her Born This Way Ball in New Zealand to address her detractors.
“That doesn’t make me feel good at all,” Gaga said of tearing others down. “That just makes me feel like I’m not a good human being … 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 different place and it’s OK, we don’t have to all slice and hate each other anymore.”
She didn’t say Madonna’s name, but we know who she was aiming that at. While the 53-year old was flashing her boobs, Gaga suffered a concussion at her concert Sunday night. While performing “Judas,” one of her dancers accidentally hit her when removing a pole from the stage setup. She grabbed her head for a moment but kept right on singing. So, point Gaga for this round.
