GaGa Producer Defends Jabs At Born This Way

| Filed under: MadonnaMusic MinuteLady GaGa

lady gaga producer defends born this way

We SO agree with this!

DJ White Shadow, who helped produce Lady GaGa's Born This Way, has come to her defense and spoken up against people who claim it rips off Madonna's Express Yourself.

Here's what he had to say about it:

"I think it was bulls**t to be honest. I guess there are a hundred songs that you could put a pitch shift and a Bpm (beats per minute) change on and loop and make them sound like anything. Actually there are five songs out that are exactly the same song, on the radio at the same time. Right now. Why doesn't anyone ever bring that up? That's a f**king felony."

"How many people have been copying Gaga since she came out? Oh, I have that answer: everyone. Have you seen all the lightning bolts painted on faces, or the one hand eye cover-ups during photos?"

"How about the fact that there was barely any dance music on the radio until Just Dance came out? Come on motherf**kers, let's keep it real here. If we are going to talk about who is chasing who, I think we all know the answer to that."

What do U think about DJ White Shadow's arguments in defense of Born This Way? Do U agree?

    actually, David Bowie had the lightning bolt on his face LONG before Lady Gaga ever came around…do your homework White Shadow!

    He's talking out of his ass. Lightening bolts on faces wasn't created by Gaga, fucking JEM the barbie had that back in the day. She's recycling old shit and marketing it like its her creation. She apparently deserves credit for ripping off other people, but other people are just copying her? Get a fucking clue. Everyone knows she's a rip off artist. PS: How's Judas doing you hypocritical bitch. Nobody can hate on the gays but you can bully the shit out of a large demographic called CATHOLICS….and now your single is shaking at the knees in the top 20..HA fucking HA.

    A dumb Lady Gaga video that auto-plays and a brand new pop up survey! #awesome!



  4. 4

    awww HELL no. the lightning bolt? DAVID BOWIE did that in the 80s. no "dance" music before "just dance"?? then what shitty generic club pop were they playing at every night spot before this bitch came along? oh yeah, britney spears, rihanna, beyonce, etc. this guy has no case and should probably just shut up right now. but perez obviously has to post any praise for this poser bitch while he ignores her MANY documented instances of hypocrisy and outright LIES.



  5. 5

    Yeah, it's not like David Bowie did the lightning bolt thing first. -_-



  6. 6

    Is this guy fucking delusional or something? There was no dance music on the radio until Just Dance came out? LMFAO! Oh no, Britney Spear's Womanizer, Toxic, Circus, Madonna's Hung Up, Gwen Stefani's Whatcha Waitin For, Katy Perry's I kissed a girl, Rhianna's SOS, Don't Stop The Music…No these were all opera songs. No dance music on the radio. Get the fuck outta here! And YES…Born This Way IS a RIPOFF of Express Yourself. Lady GaGa SUCKS and she is a hack job! And her new song and video Judas BLOWS HARD!



  7. 7

    Ok is this supposed to make us think she is a victim of a copy cat shes not but i think in this day in age everyone uses everyone's stuff and its ok …but the reason sooo many people go after Lady Gaga is because she is soooo big headed about herself i mean ive seen GAGA vision ..REALLY! shes said that she comes up with everything ! every hook every bridge every melody and its just not true !!!



  8. 8

    I don't agree!!



  9. 9

    Dance music has been all over the radio for years. this women is not original!!!!

    her music is the same shit as everyone else these days. Boring.

  10. Catty says – reply to this

    Hey, Mr DJ put a record on, but not a rip off of my song.



  11. 11

    Are you guys really that ignorant?
    When GaGa put the bolt on her face, it was a BLATANT HOMAGE to David Bowie, she was not "copying" him. GaGa consistently has been citing Bowie publicly in interviews as a major reference point in her work. White Shadow is poking fun at all of the other all-of-the-sudden/bandwagon Bowie fans who now have lightening bolts on their faces; it's become more of a trend then a way of expressing gratitude- the way GaGa intended.



  12. 12

    Anyone that's heavily publicized in the media like she is DESERVES the attention and scrutiny. Celebrities (many of them) Thrive off of the fame and attention. This Manufactured drag queen has talent but she is not at all original. This guy needs to S**K ass….



  13. 13

    Re: Wise1107 – Thank you! Was sooo gonna comment that myself.



  14. 14

    oh STFU White Shadow, you're just mad because when people diss Gaga and say Born This Way is an Express Yourself ripoff, they're dissing you too since you helped produce. if you didn't, you wouldn't give a rats ass about Gaga or WTF people were saying about her. cursing doesn't help either. maybe you should have kept your mouth shut because now people know to blame you for the ripoff as well.



  15. 15

    DJ, Talk To THE Hand! Gaga is NOT original! It's a surprise Madonna hasn't taken legal action against her! No dance music before Gaga? PFFFFFFFFTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!



  16. 16

    People just need to face it, she's a replica of things a lot of people can recognize (i.e. the bowie-lightening faces or madonna songs). She's not different, she's not daring, she's just another mediocre singer. However, she seems really lovely and very endeared to her fans, which is actually nice to see. While I'm straight, I SOOO admire her for sticking up for LGBT rights, which is super amazing. For me however, I just can't appreciate her musically as it all just seems old hat :/ We don't need gimmicks, we don't need flash, just say something that reaches us, instead of just a beat. Hot 100s are great and all, but the quality just does not stack up against the true greats (i.e. Bjork, Tina Turner, Whitney Houston, Madonna, etc.)



  17. 17

    he doesn't give any examples to back up his arguments. face it, the songs sound very similar. he know it. that's why instead of defending the song, he winds up shifting the focus to gaga's credibility, which isn't the subject of the debate.



  18. 18

    He sounds very professional…..



  19. 19

    Re: Bytch – She IS a Catholic you dumb skank. Your argument is invalid. Shes making millions and you're complaining on a gossip site. Go smoke a bowl and stop being so pressed.



  20. 20

    any dance music on the radio until Just Dance came out? OMG STFU DJ WHITE SHADOW!!! DELUSIONAL!!!!!



  21. 21

    LMAO. He sounds as delusional as Gaga. Madonna's Hung Up topped the charts in 40 countries in 2005. Dance music at its best before Gaga. And Bowie had the lightning bolt over his eye like 40 years ago. This bitch obviously have no idea on what he's talking about, much like Gaga. He's just pressed people think of BTW as an Express Yourself rip-off and not as the anthem they thought it was gonna be. Always embarassing themselves. LOLOL.

    It doesn't matter if you flop or capital F-L-O-P



  22. 22

    LADY GAGA IS HORRIBLE! SHE HAS NO TALENT! SHE IS AN OBNOXIOUS ATTENTION WHORE OF A MESS! DONT SUPPORT HER EITHER! SHE CLAIMS THAT SHE DONATES MONEY TO CHARITIES BUT SHE DOESNT!!! FOR INSTANCE HER NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR "JUDAS" COST OVER 10 MILLION DOLLARS$$$$$$$ TO CREATE! (AND IT SUCKS, JUST LIKE THE SONG.)

    SHE DESERVES NO ATTENTION OR SUPPORT! ANTI-GAGA! GAGA IS GAGARBAGE! BRING HER DOWN!!!!!!!



  23. 23

    I'm not in a position to judge anyones faith( Kylelondeen), but I think it may be safe to say that some people will call themselves a certain religion just because their parents or family were. They never actually practice or study the faith themselves. This may be the case with this gaga tramp. just sayin….



  24. 24

    this sounds a lot like what madonna went through in the 80s



  25. 25

    wtf is this person on about?? really??? other pop artists are copying the lightning bolt ?? WHO? am I missing something? plus she didn't even create that
    so give me a break! talk about ignorant. lolzzzzzzzzzz no dance music??? before gaagaa?? LMFAO omfg.. perez is major ignorant for even posting that crap from such an ignorant booty kisser.



  26. 26

    LMAO! And that's exactly what she and all of her fans think. Having the audacity to torment other celebrities claiming they are copying her, but now she's facing the same scrutiny. LMAO! It's called karma bitches. Eat it up and savor the flavor. This is especially pointed to the biggest Lady GaGa bully fan of them all, Perez Hilton and his relentless attacks against Christina Aguilera. Oh, and that guy was totally talking out his ass about um I say everything! The pretentiousness never stops.



  27. 27

    i really wish Lady Gaga would stop trying to be Yolandi Visser from Die Antwoord…



  28. 28

    The fact is that with Born this Way/Respect Yourself is that EVERYONE that hears it says "hey that sounds like Madonna…"
    If the "man on the street" can figure this out, that's pretty bad. We've come a long way since My Sweet Lord/He's so Fine. GH was sued for that and LOST, and I still don't hear the similarities. She'd lose in a second if this ever went to court…

    would even try to copy a caca
    it's impossible to copy someone who has been copying you!!! HELLO..



  33. 33

    He's saying she is the original one? I guess if they tell eachother this many lies and believe it, then it helps when they out n out steal from Madonna.

  34. M: says – reply to this


    34

    how can u say that DJ shodow is right about gaga BTW song?? u said it sounds like express urself and gaga too when she went to jay leno and even said madonna sent her an email supporting her. and now this?? and u even say gaga created the lighting bold (BOWIE USED BEFORE) AND DANCE MUSIC( Madonna was doing dance music since the MUSIC album and confessions HUNG UP) all that gaga does is a copy.even the meat dress. ur became a joke and an hipocrite.like gaga staff. they should just admited. this is so wrong. claiming that M and kylie copy gaga are u insane? madonna doesnt need to copy gaga.anjd the pal in the eye in 2009 gaga wasnt anyone ,madonna used it to recreat her own 80s photoshoot and u know it. and kylie used the LBOLT LIKE BOWIE.and why gaga used the CONE BRA?? if she wasnt ur friend u would call her the biggest copycat ever. SHAME ON U HIPOCRITE

    u should apoligize to madonna and kylie.



  35. 35

    No amount of overly defensive bitching can change the fact that just about EVERYONE who has heard that song think it sounds pretty much exactly the same.

  36. M: says – reply to this


    36

    she became a joke and her name and her crew name is now hipocrites. now ur name perez are associated with them congrats.u used to be cool and honest not anymore.lkiar .u cant speack the true

    gaga and her staff sucks



  38. 38

    This is not a Gaga diss!!! But after first hearing the song a few times and not knowing the words at all just the rhythm, I found myself when attempting to sing Born This Way slipping into Madonna's Express Yourself. There is an obviously similar rhythm, breaks in the music and lyric structure that make them very similar.

  39. M: says – reply to this

    GAGA AND HER CREW ARE FULL OF SHITS. LIARS



  40. 40

    perez should be ashamed
    and should apologize to Madona, and BRITNEY
    and EVERYONE else that gaga payed RESPECT to, AKA copied
    cause it's bull for him to actually agree that other
    artists are copying the copycat
    name one PLEASE name ONE……. just saying
    this site is getting ridiculous………………….. it's my guilty pleasure
    honestly to think he can claim to be Madonna's fan and then try and agree with such a dishonorable comment that is nothing but pure lies created to heal caca's and his own EGO

  41. M: says – reply to this


    41

    she sucks. shes an hipocrite. just like all her staff.
    JUDAS sucks. the song and the video too. exciting moment??? this video doesnt shock anyone. not even a kid. this is just a modern recreation of the bibble. so what?? like a prayer shocked the world.this doesnt. and gaga is full of lies. first they all claim that BTW was an inspiration and a tribute to madonna now they say it doesnt sound like madonna and madonna and kylie copied gaga??lol what a joke. the lighting bold was from bowie not gaga and madonna was doing dance music since music album and confesisons. HUNG UP . gaga is a liar. this song just sucks and the video is just too simple and she doenst push the limits .always playing for the safe. madonna alreday did it



  42. 42

    Of course he's going to say that, he wants to stay hooked up to the gravy train. He's overly defensive because he knows all the jabs are true. First time I heard Born This Way, I thought of Express Yourself. Her fans and this guy are just in denial.

    @djshadow is a loser. just a dumbass could say this .and if perez agrees well she doesnt know anything

    fake ppl. gaga should be ashamed. dance music??? madonna is doing dance music since 200- remember hung up ????
    and the lighting bolt was stolen from bowie. how can u say everybody incluiding madonna copies gaga?? NEVER



  47. 47

    lightening bolts on the face….and he is crediting gag for this?
    shows that he's talking shit really. david bowie all the way

    and in regards to people 'copying' gaga. maybe she was the person who decided to resurect all the old greats such as david bowie, madonna (as she is crap nowadays) which people caught onto.
    but maybe the other people had the right idea as lady gaga is the one who has ruined 'weird artist' intergraty.

    and the two songs i've heard onthis album suck. as does the artwork.

SHAME ON U

    Re: elfslayer – madonna isnt crap.everybody copied her. shoe doesnt need to proff anything anymore. and she will be back soon with a mega album. she is finishing her movie. madonna owns the best tours and confessions albumw as one of her bests. her last album wasnt great but she was leaving warners so…. madonna is #1 the best and the crap here is gaga.

    madonna has many great songs and everytime she goes on tour she brokes the records. shes always has the best shows. so shut up



  51. 51

    Holey.Moley.Shitz. EVERYTHING Lady CaCa does is a GIANT rip-off. She's just counting on people with NO MUSICAL HISTORY/TASTE to KNOW the Difference. Some days, she can't decide if she's going to Rip-Off Madonna or Dale Bozzio (M.P.). OF COURSE Born this way is a Madonna Rip-Off. Just like her new video Judas is a "Like A Prayer" Rip-Off. She doesn't even try to hide the fact that she uses electronic voice adjustment to sound exactly like Madonna. In fact, if you squint your eyes, you can't even tell the difference between a Madonna/Ca-Ca video. Shock me-shock me-shock me Mistress CaCa. (Yawwwwnnnn).
    Been there, done that TWAT.

    Re: M: – All you're doing is repeating yourself over and over with the same 3 posts. I'm not a gaga fan either, but i'm also not fucking obsessed with her like you are. Why are you so angry? Did she snub you at an autograph signing or something? Or did you make her a demo tape of yourself and she didn't like it? Either way you're coming across as a creepy obsessed stalker. WE GET IT, YOU DON'T LIKE HER.



  61. 61

    The gay public will not forgive a lack of respect for gays or their icons. Gaga - you have no right to speak for gay men or women and you need to respect the people they consider legendary and pay loving homage, not rip them off! Sit your ugly ass down or turn your stupid shoulder pad cheek bone pasting self into a motorcycle and drive away. I am not interested in hearing from you again!

    haha, I know right? M, your silly jabs at Gaga all the time, and putting Madonna up on a pedestal are getting real old. Madonna is not even relevant anymore.

    One more thing, CACA is like 23 right? Her producer is probably young like that too. Didn't all these people who supposedly copy her exist 20, 30 and 40 years before Lada CACA was even born? She's a dumb F**K and So is her Management. I'm so over this bitch.

    have to do with people not liking her? I don't like her, but it sure as hell isn't because of that. Lol ;'] It's people like Perez, Caca, and dj white snow or w/e the fuck his name is as the reason I don't like her. They are all very full of themselves. It's sad as others work will be credited to gaga and he wont name Gaga copiers.. hm.. would it be because none exist? just saying! lol



  70. 70

    Re: truthbetold!!!SEMICOLON!!! – I was implying that maybe there was a reason he's obsessed with hating her. It was directed towards ONLY him…not you or anyone else…pay attention. I also never said I disagree with anything you're all hating her for. I agree for the most part. I'm just not cramming it down anyones throat with 30 posts, all stating the same thing.



  71. 71

    this is a clear cut case of someone being accused of something they did, and becoming violently angry in defending themselves because they dont want to get caught. I can't think of anyone that has copied Lady Gaga. She herself just bothers me because if you look who she was just a few years ago, she was NOT like this. Her ideas, her image, her life. Everything was total polar opposite to what he ideas are now. I've never seen anyone as fake as her in the media.



  72. 72

    Re: M: – Look I'm a huge Madonna fan but you make fans of any artist look psychotic. Quit flooding the board with the same repetive posts anytime Madonna is mentioned!

    The songs are way to similar. DJ White Shadow is an idiot if he can't see it's a ripoff.



  73. 73

    Its hilarious that a guy that ripped off HIS NAME from an old TV show about basketball is defending GAGA ripping off everybody else.
    The guy is a joke of biblical proportions.
    White Shadow is his name? Really?
    Did someone else use the name Star Trek?



  74. 74

    She is most certainly a rip-off artist who copies Madonna and Britney..she wore a Britney outfit on Ellen..Brit wore that outfit like 5 years ago…BTW is very similar to Express Yourself…GAG GAG flop flop



  75. 75

    He misses the point or the criticism. While her previous work may not have been "original", it was at least fresh. It took old ideas and put a new spin on them and for that she deserves kudos. Her new work seems to take old ideas and simply recycle them with less apparent effort (or success) to make something new and exciting. It seems she is spending so much time on her image and appearance that the music is suffering. If you take away the buzz that it was "new Lady Gaga", "Born This Way" is a very average track.



  76. 76

    Like others have stated, David Bowie has been doing the lightening bolt FAR FAR longer than Gaga. He just comes across as an idiot in this, so it makes sense that Perez would agree. :/



  77. 77

    hes a dumass KISS!! shes always whining that shes copied when all she does is copy

    hes right about one thing rapping has to stop and bring the dance music bak some of her songs are great but lately they are autotune shit she has the voice she should stick to using it and not go too commercial



  78. 78

    He should shut up…he s not making a good case for himself and caca. everything he says is untrue.



  79. 79

    He must be doing the same drugs LADY HORSE FACE is on!! DELUSIONAL!!!!



  80. 80

    Re: BLUZULU – um actually yes those artists did dance music BUT do you even notice that dance music is now being done by EVERY ARTIST ..ludacris, rihanna (who is especially desperately trying to make her image crazy which she didnt have when she first started!!), even usher is doing dance music because thats the trend that caught on after gaga got soo much fame off music that people could dance to. Every other song made that u mentioned were just songs that didnt create the huge trend thats caught on so get ur facts straight



  81. 81

    its funny how u all hate on gaga for copying Madonna when she has admitted to being a madonna and david bowie fan PLUS she is friends with madonna so if madonna HERSELF doesnt have a problem why do you????
    —–what about alll of the artists that have drastically changed their image as soon as they noticed the fame Gaga was getting by being different??? Katy Perry, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj



  82. 82

    When you explode into the spotlight there would never stop making comparisons with other artists. Yesterday it was Madonna and today is GaGa and no matter what the latter does they won't stop comparing withe previous. I agree in big part with DJ White Shadow regarding songs that could be similar beat by beat (better for clubs so they can have an easy mix and trust me it's not easy as it looks like). So I could suggest to stop the baloney and enjoy the music.



  83. 83

    I am sure Gaga appreciates when people stick up for her, but I don't think she needs people to defend her. Any discourse draws attention to her and keeps people fascinated, but people will always be talking about her one way or another. With art, any publicity is good publicity.

    Idiot. He's not saying no one made dance music before Lady GaGa. He said there was barely any dance music on the radio/charts before her, and he's kind of right. You look at the top ten charts about 5 years ago, and it was just mostly hip-hop, as that genre has had a stranglehold on the charts for a good part of the 00s. You look at the top ten for the last 3 years, and not only it's mostly dance, but it's been mostly dance female artists. Is GaGa directly responsible? Maybe, maybe not….hard to say, but you can't deny that she has helped change the pop music scene within the last 3 years, no matter how many people you want to say she copied.
    As far as you saying GaGa only plays to small crowds, what's a small crowd? A bar? Billboard just reported yesterday that the Monster Ball is on the verge of becoming becoming one of the top 10 highest-grossing tours of all time. You don't get that from "playing to small crowds" or "not selling out in Europe" as you seem to claim all the time, but have yet to back up these claims.

    Re: kylelondeen – Perez Hilton is also a gay man, and he represents them and insults them constantly. BEING the demographic that you insult doesn't make it okay!!! Go to school!!

    a well said message to the haters!

    Gaga is mediocre in every single aspect…..her music isn't that memorable and she certainly didn't invent dance music. I'm glad to see this backlash because she is completely OVERRATED and I'm glad that a lot of us aren't being blinded or fooled by her act.

    @1. Thank you! Bowie did the lightening bolt on his face back in the early 1970s. Not sure why this DJ is acting like Gaga did it first. LOL!!!!

    What don't Gaga fans understand? Gaga was wearing Aber Ronnie and Fitch, looked more bohemian in 2007 and then BAM 2008 comes abd she's singing dance music and is wearing everything that Roisen Murphy was at the time. Gaga ALWAYS got undeserved credit. She has NEVER been fresh or new because there are hundreds of pictures of her from the beginning of her career showing that everything she wore was already with BEFORE her, yet for 2 straight yrs, Gaga got credit for EVERYTHING. You couldn't cut your hair, wear a jacket, cut your hair into bangs, bSically breathe without someone saying you are tying to be Gaga. The ridiculousness and hypocrisy that Gaga fans and media put other artists through is turning back around on Gaga. Do people not notice that Gaga's backlash started when fans were bullying other artists? Karma is a bitch and for someone who got SO much undeserved credit and praise, it was only a matter of time before people started calling her out. Her, her camp
    and fans are BEYOND delusional. They think if they deny it and say they are original enough times, that we will believe it. Lol sorry but pictures and dates don't lie and the truth is that Gaga was NEVER original. She was copying artists in the UK that were ALREADY wearing the same clothes she used to wear in 2008. It's just that everyone was blinded. I'm glad people see the truth now.

    seems like his ego is offended, sorry dude u suck and are in original



  91. 91

    Um, people said it was a copy of Express Yourself because the chorus has THE EXACT SAME TUNE. There is no disputing the fact tha the "I'm beautiful in my way…" section is EXACTLY the same as "So if you want it right now…" part of Express Yourself.



  92. 92

    THANK YOU!!! SO GLAD SOMEONE FINALLY SAID IT!!!



  93. 93

    How about the fact that her song DOES sound exactly like Express Yourself, that was the first song I thought of when I heard Born This Way. Lady Gaga hasn't been around long enough for people to start copying her yet, jesus christ. Why can't people admit that she isn't all that interesting?

    Dj White Shadow is right, E.T Sounds like that first song TATU came out with, S&M sounds like every other Rihanna song that teaches you how to be a slut.
