Madonna & Lady Gaga's 'Express Yourself' v. 'Born This Way' Drama Continues (VIDEO)

Quote:
Perhaps it's because Madge hasn't been in the spotlight much since her album, MDNA, topped the Billboard charts (and suffered a subsequent nosedive in sales), but she recently went out of her way to once again remind everyone that she is, in fact, older than Lady Gaga.

The queen of pop was performing "Express Yourself" at a concert in Israel when she suddenly trotted out a cover of "Born This Way." Of course, the two tracks blended seamlessly. Though she stayed mum on Gaga's song for some time after its release, Madge eventually said she felt the single was "reductive" and undoubtedly influenced by her earlier work.

The whole affair had an air of condescension, as if Madonna was wielding the cover like Jay-Z did when he silenced Noel Gallagher and other critics by performing "Wonderwall" at Glastonbury. (The Oasis singer had taken great umbrage at the fact that a rapper had been chosen to headline the festival.)

So what say you, readers? Was Madonna rubbing some salt in Gaga's wound (the latter had recently canceled a show after she faced threats from conservative religious groups), or was she merely winking at the controversy while celebrating the younger performer?

Controversy sells, Madonna knows this.

I just love how Madonna feels so entitled even though she's been sued dozens of times for copyright infringement as well as breach of contract, and the fact that she takes many of her images (no not ideas which are intangible) from other famous artists before her. This includes video clips, album covers, photoshoots, outfits etc.

You'd think she would understand how it feels to be accused of copying other people's works and looks as she is/was constantly accused of being a copy of Marilyn Monroe. And besides, the only similar thing between Express Yourself and Born This Way is the chord progression.

also I just don't get how Madonna could bash or throw shade at someone who looks up to her and only has nice things to say about her. Perhaps she really does thrive on other artist's careers

LOL this is such a fake controversy. As if Madonna or GaGa had anything to do with the way these songs sound. If the producers of both songs don't see a problem, there isn't a problem.

Don't you think they're both in on it? I mean, I can hardly imagine using someone's music that she actually doesn't like. I'm sure she respects Gags and likes the song. If she hated her and/or the song, why would she 'demean' herself and sing it?

It's obviously to get people talking and based on this thread, it worked.

The bitch is going to get credited and receive royalties when this concert is broadcast and/or sold on DVD. If anything Madonna is acknowledging that artists take and borrow from other artists ALL the time (something Basic Gaga failed to do with BTW). Child if you knew anything you'd know she does covers/mashups on her tours ALL the time.

I'm amazed at how sens-a-tive yall lil monsters everytime Germannotta is mentioned in the same sentence as the Queen

ETA: I love how both songs transition so perfectly together

Is there any creature on earth as unfortunate as an ugly woman?

Pretty sure if you write a song you have something to do with the way it sounds

Like papa_action said, artists do cover of other artists' songs all the time. I'm sure this is not the first time Madonna has done this. Plus she needs to give her tour some exposure and this is pretty much ideal.
