Madonna Says Lady GaGa's Born This Way Was A Great Way To Redo Express Yourself!!

| Filed under: MadonnaMusic MinuteLady GaGa

In the January 30th issue of Newsweek, Madonna was asked what she thought when she heard Lady GaGa's Born This Way for the first time…

…and Madgesty just let it all out there!!

She replied:

I thought, this is a wonderful way to redo my song (Express Yourself). I mean, I recognized the chord changes. I thought it was…interesting.

And there ya go!!

Personally, we love them BOTH!! Both songs. Both queens!

But to do a fair comparison, we've added a little side-by-side video of the gurls' performing their anthems of strength. WATCH IT!!

And now that we've heard Madonna's thoughts, we wanna know… what are URS!?!

  1. 1

    My opinion is still the same, BTW sucks. Why should Madonna have to answer this? Wasn't Whitney Houston the inspiration behind BTW? Lolol.



  2. 2

    Yea but didnt gaga and the producer of the song and her fans deny that the song had anything to do with madonnas original when everyone was calling it express yourself 2.0? Its sounds to me madonna is making it clear gaga copied her song and used the excuse she was inspired.



  3. 3

    I thought it sounded like Express yourself from the moment I heard the song. Love them both. They should both sing a song together sometime. that would be epic



  4. 4

    Put the normal "smarm" of Madonna into the quote and it is the backhanded insult "Born This Way" deserves. She sure as Hell wasn't praising the song.



  5. 5

    Zing! Only a moron would think it wasn't a rip-off. Cue the Gaga sheep to say otherwise.



  6. 6

    I personally don't care that Gaga copied Madonna, it just bugs me that Gaga always talks about how original and unique she is.. why would she not just admit that she re-did Madonna's song?! Then she says Whitney Houston inspired her! She's such a fake. Anyway, this statement sorta sounds like a dig at Gaga, not a compliment…



  7. 7

    Not like Madonna herself is 'original'.
    Personally I like Born This Way better and I grew up with Express Yourself.



  8. 8

    Madonna is just upset that gaga didnt give her that song and she wish she made it…. get over your slef Madonna…. you had your time.



  9. 9

    Oh and if Born This Way was inspired by Whitney shouldnt she of copied a Whitney song?? Gaga is such a liar she was clearly not inpired by whitney when she did this song.



  10. 10

    I feel so bad for her. She can't talk shit about Gaga otherwise the little monsters will turn into big fat ones.

    Madonna will always be a legend.



  11. 11

    Lady Gaga DID copy this song, and Madonna has just acknowledged this with that comment. Lady Gaga however said that she didn't copy it at all, she made out that it was completely original material.
    I think that Lady Gaga does some good humanitarian work and SOME of her music is good, but she tries too hard to be weird, she dates controversy and is incredibly arrogant.



  12. 12

    You condemned everyone else who says that gaga hijacked express yourself but now that Madonna gave a compliment that felt like a bitch slap, you're like now they're all cool. Clearly Madonna thinks that Gaga just changed a few chords to her song and is a copycat. Read between the lines



  13. 13

    GET OVER YOURSELF MADONNA! u had ur time now please retire with some dignity!! U just look old and a fool trying to keep up with the new generation!



  14. 14

    obviously Madonna slammed Gaga for copying her! Gaga said that it was her original song and Madonna clearly says that it's her song done little diferrently…no wonder she's pissed because this song made a lot and Madonna has no credit



  15. 15

    it may be in a different tempo and key, but let's face it, it's the same song! There is nothing original about Lady Gaga.



  16. 16

    The two songs are clearly similar, but just about every pop song out there copies or takes heavy influence from other pop songs. However BTW definitely brings a powerful message in a way that no other pop act has done before. She deserves credit for that. And even as a remake Gaga has still brought here own to the song. Personally I think Madonna depressed and bitter that she is now just OLD news.



  17. 17

    Re: benjic – I totally agrer. Madonna was great at some point now she should just sit back and enjoy being a legend



  18. 18

    Re: PowerMeUp – AGREED!!



  19. 19

    and.. clearly, Madonna is 'Hung Up' on Abba. "Gimme Gimme Gimme", she says.



  20. 20

    Please, Madonna saying she "can hear the chords" is like Stevie Wonder saying he can see the brush strokes in a Rembrandt painting.

    Re: SlaveMeh – don't worry, Gaga copied a Whitney song too, her song "Fashion Of His Love" is a copy of Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" lol…this is great…an obvious dig in true Madonna fashion…and Gaga straight up denied any inspiration from Madonna for the song, called the comparisons "retarded" in a magazine interview and said Whitney was the inspiration for the BTW song. Any day Gaga gets called out on her shit is a good day to me!



  22. 22

    I hate when people bring up this argument. I do think that Madonna and Lady Gaga have similar fashion ideals. They are always looking for something new, they are fashion cameleons so to speak. Not so much Madonna anymore, but she was into avant-garde at one point just as Gaga is now. They comment on a lot of the same things in their music because not much has changed, people are still fighting for gay rights and the right of individuality. But if you say that they are a like because their musical subject matter is the same you are basically saying any lyrically competent artist is copying off of Madonna.
    I have always felt that Madonna is more similar to Britney Spears, they are both great performers, wonderful dancers, and have catchy music. However, I do not consider Britney or Madonna to be vocal and musical artists.
    Lady Gaga on the other hand has a wonderful voice classically trained piano skills. I do not think of her as an amazing dancer as I would Madonna. So to say they are the same or that Lady Gaga is a carbon copy of Madonna isn't true. That's my opinion at least.



  23. 23

    FUCK YEAH MADONNA! tell it like it is. she stole the song. point blank period.

  24. IVIV says – reply to this

    Re: benjic – how, in any way, has Born This Way "brought a powerful message in a way no other pop act has done before"? You must be very young.

  25. Wheel says – reply to this


    25

    I picked that out from the start that it sounds the same as Madonna's song. However, I don't think Lady Ga Ga would deny it. If she did than I would have to compare her to Vanilla Ice saying he didnt rip off Queen/David Bowie. LOL.



  26. 26

    "Express Yourself"… a powerful message from the Queen (^^.)



  27. 27

    Well, Picasso once said: "Good artists copy, great artists steal."



  28. 28

    Madonna tells it like it is. Go, bitch. "Express Yourself" >>>> "Born This Way". Cheap tribute, really.



  29. 29

    mandonna couldve been much more tasteful.



  30. 30

    Finally! She said what the MAJORITY of critics, fans, and musicians alike have been saying.



  31. 31

    Umm…figured that one out the first time hearing gaga's born this way. Still prefer Madge.



  32. 32

    it is so bloody obvious that lady gaga copied the song, and the fact that she's yet to adress it is embarressing, like a massive pink elephant in the room. finally madonna speaks up about it, though in a very polite manner, bless her.



  33. 33

    I like both artists but the very first time I heard BTW I said it's sounds exactly like Express yourself. Gaga may not have done it on purpose but it is a very strange coincidence. Madonna was the first artist to really keep reinventing herself with every album and Lady Gaga has a great voice but just because you wear something strange or out of the ordinary that doesn't make it art….just sayin

  34. IVIV says – reply to this


    34

    Re: sadiebaby89 – Gaga did address it, she denied it and called the comparisons "retarded"…here's the quote from NME "No. Listen to me. Why the f**k? I'm a songwriter…Why would I try to put out a song and think I'm getting one over on everybody? That's retarded. If you put the songs next to each other, side by side, the only similarities are the chord progression. Just because I'm the first f**king artist in 25 years to think of putting it on Top 40 radio, it doesn't mean I'm a plagiarist. It means I'm f**king smart. Sorry."……….she's so full of herself! "the first artist to put it on top 40 radio"?? LOL



  35. 35

    Re: IVIV – Well, I respect Lady Gaga and love this song for telling gay youth, it's ok to be the person you were born to be! Just like I think Express Yourself was a great message for women at the time. I may be wrong, but I cant recall a song a mainstream song with a message this powerful for gay youth in particular. And if everyone wanted to hear original stuff these days we'd all be listening to Bjork.



  36. 36

    To me they sound nothing alike. To me though, Lady gaga's Born This Way is way better. In fact She's a better artist full stop. Madonna is nothing now then a complete has been that seems to be clinging on to fame in whatever which way she can, and spouts rubbish like she's gods gift to society. Unfortunately for Madonna, I would of thought she was gods gift, if she had actually gotten off that bony backside of hers and actually wrote her albums, instead of paying someone else to do it for her, hence why she worships Britney so much, so obviously she'd take the jibe at Gaga, someone with actual music ability. With Madonna you get an over-rated, outspoken, lazy, middle aged woman that should really give up now, it's disgusting watching her flaunt it like people WANT to see that.



  37. 37

    this is why i love her:
    she can give you a double answer with her responses
    one answer is "yes she did copy me and me and the whole world knows it.. so don't even try it" and the other answer is: "its ok though because its all good and I'M the queen of pop " LOL

    ya when madonna calls it a rip off you cant say shit, but when someone else does you eat them alive the song was just a copy but she did do some slight changes

    Re: PowerMeUp – give her a song that gaga copied? lollllll preach, ya loser!!

    QUEEN BITCH!! LUV U MADONNA!! and she's funny too!!



  44. 44

    Re: Patchyk – i know, poor gaga. it's gonna end badly for her. lollll



  45. 45

    I'm sorry but the two are nothing alike.. The only thing that is the same is the chord progression and the key. And madonna sure as hell doesn't own chord progressions and keys. Fact is music has been happening for hundreds of years, your bound to get the same chord progression in songs. The melody,lyrics and instrument and production are all completely different to express your self. People are stupid to think she copied. I'm studying music and performing arts in an Arts University , so please don't reply back by saying i don't know what i'm talking about, because i do. I've been studying music for 10 years now. Only thing that is the same is the chord progression and key…. Madonna's being silly and stuck up by saying its a remix of her song just because of chord progressions she doesn't own the very existence of musical theory … Also the chord progression of thier songs are common pop progressions, load of songs have them, they're just in different keys.

    I grew up in the 80's and remember seeing madonna evolve. She was an original from the start not to mention groudbreaking and a trail blazer. Do you really think Lady Gaga would exist without Madonna. I have even heard Lady Gaga speak of Madonna and she is clearly a fan and inspired by her. My question is why her fans put Madonna down? Also Gaga's message seems to be one of love yet her fans talk with so much hate. I like many of Gaga's songs but I will wait to see where she is 10 years before saying in anything else. Madonna was just getting warmed up 10 years into her career. I can remember seeing the Like a Virgin performance on MTV, NO ONE at that time would ever dare to do a performance like this. Watch it in the context of the rest of the show and you will see it. Flash forward 5 years down the road. Like a Prayer was groundbreaking. Who would dare put religious imagery , sexuality and burning crosses into a video. A year later we got Blonde Ambition, which is pretty much a blueprint for all the concerts that younger performs do now. It is sad to read nasty comments about a woman who truely more than any artist has worked hard and earns respect. I hope Madonna keeps making music for another 20 years, because their are so few true living legends left. Fame has changed, now anyone who makes a self made sex tape can be a star. If anyone lived in the 80's and watched Madonna, you would experience a True star. Madonna is a Legend!!!



  47. 47

    Re: MissyAllyWoo – You have got to be like 12 years old if you think Madonna is a hasbeen! She had a hit like 2 years ago with "4 min." How does that make her a hasbeen? She hasn't been in the music industry at the top of her game for the last 20 years because she is lazy! She does ridiculous amounts of charity work and has even built schools in 3rd world nations. She is like 50 and has a better body then most people half her age including Gaga. You seriously have no idea what your talking about



  48. 48

    Madonna's been a total bitch for the last year…I mean, I know she's a bitch but I've always liked her music and tolerated it. Lately, though, she's been in bitch overdrive. And I think, for many fans like myself, she is beginning to turn us off. The demo for the new single off her next cd SUCKED and if the new cd is anything like that steaming pile of shit, it'll be the first Madonna cd I haven't purchased in more than a decade. You're not all that Madonna…you're shit stinks like everybody else. Get over yourself and make good music, you snooty bitch, or you'll loose the fans you have.



  49. 49

    She had a whole year to complain but now that she almost has her album out she decides to say something. sounds like she wants attention so people can buy her new album. I like Madonna but I love gaga. Both great songs but born this way is more universal.



  50. 50

    Re: ravensgirl8389 – Are you joking gaga is a amazing dancer, did you not see her new vid marry the night.. GAga has great voice and she's a great dancer…..

    "a Great way" bahahaha ya otherwise a carbon copy that lady copycat "wrote in 10 minutes".

    Re: MissyAllyWoo – There would be no GAGA if it werent for Madonna.. her fans need to realize this and start showing some respect for a legend. Can't wait for Madonna s 2012 tour so she can once again show all these little Madonna's in training how its done!!!



  53. 53

    I think that Madonna had her time and shes shitting over Gaga's success. Most songs out there sound like each other. Few more surgeries and Madonna will look like Joan Rivers. Why does she have to be bitchy? She should remember her roots and stop believing the Her Madgesty press.



  54. 54

    LMAO shade



  55. 55

    All I have to say is "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery", so who cares! Some say Madonna copied her look off Marilyn Monroe. But you never hear her bring that up. Because NO ONE CARES!!



  56. 56

    Gaga is a wannabe!! Born this way is a bad copy of what our Madgesty did on Like a Prayer! Gaga should be ashamed of be that wannabe! Express Yourself is one of the best songs of history, and Madonna is the only Queen of Pop!! Madonna will rock the world this year! C'mon girls!! Do you believe in love? #GagaWannabe #BTWSucks



  57. 57

    Madonna said nothing but the truth! Except that she was nice about: instead of calling it a rip-off, she simply says it was a nice way to "redo" her song.
    Not to mention that Madonna's EXPRESS YOURSELF is a CLASSIC pop song.
    Lady Caca's remake is just a hit, resulting of a lot of payola and advertising. She failed to produce a classic even when riping off a classic. She'll have to try again.



  58. 58

    Re: bcb
    No one is obligated to respect anyone, and certainly not a pop star. If you want people to throw around respect willy nilly, how about naming the real movers and shakers of this world. Madonna owes a lot of her fame to those before her, too–let's not act like she's all that original–she's not.



  59. 59

    It's funny how the eternally "victim/bullied" aka Gaga and her ridiculous monsters are turning this into Madonna is the bitch in this situation. Gaga knew exactly what she was doing when she ripped the song off, she was trying to provoke Madonna (who pretty much remained silent about the whole thing) and Madonna just let it all blow up in her face, and it DID. If you think Gaga is the same admired star she was a year or so ago, then you're delusional. She's fading very fast and for good reason. Enough of the bullies crying "we are the bullied" when everyone knows the truth. Gaga didn't count on Madonna not taking her bait and looking the fool because Madonna is much smarter than that and she is definitely much smarter than pampered little princess who daddy bought and paid for her record career.

    61

    Re: FauxNews – You make some very good points. I have to say I really was a big GaGa fan after her first album, and even thought this might finally be the artist who will be the next Madonna. Then came the second album. I liked a few of the songs but this is not what she needed. Like a Virgin was Madonna's second album. That album made her an icon, I think Gaga dropped the ball and sadly I doubt she will be able to reclaim it



  62. 62

    Madonna is just old and jealous.

    Well, you don't live in that world of pop music, and I myself prefer to live in the real world. You might want to come down a little bit yourself.

    Re: IllusionEmotion – Madonna made no secret of her being inspirted by Monroe and the Matrial Girl video is tribute to Monroe, Madonna admits that. Could you imagine if madonna made the video for Material Girl and denied it was based on the movie. I feel that is what gaga did with BTW. It is a clear copy of Express Yourself. She should have admited it and moved on. She should have come out and said this my update of the Madonna classic. That would have changed the whole thing. She could have promoted it as a reimagined 2010 version of the classic. Instead she denied it all and made herself look like nothing more than a rip off artist. She needs better advisors.

    Re: perezisadumbass – I can take most of the comments here with a grain of salt, but calling Madonna stupid is unbelievable. Nothing about this woman is stupid. You can argue her talent, but you cant argue her brains. Though I am sure the same cannot be said about you.

    Re: bcb
    OK, if you mean"original" , stealing her persona from Marilyn Monroe, Marlena Dietrich, and more, then ok, I get your point.



  71. 71

    Paaleeze people. I'm a HUGE Madonna fan, and she can be a huge bitch, and I like Gaga too, but let's just all acknowledge that song is a total rip off of Express Yourself.



  72. 72

    MADONNA ROCKS…. she spoke the truth… even perez said BORN THIS WAY WAS EXPRESS YOURSELF 2.0…. madonna said she likes it…. and yes its a retro of express yourself.whats the big deal.. everybody says that.even radios said that when BORN THIS WAY CAME OUT…… madonna doesnt care…she said she likes gaga… gaga was the one that disrespected madonna…. when she called us retarded just cause ppl were saying BTE sounded like express yourself



  73. 73

    Re: bcb
    Why ask why I'm on here? Free will brought me here, and I didn't think I needed your permission. You mean to tell me this site never discusses politics or current events? Are you that naive to think that's what I'm talking about? My point is no one has to respect ANYONE just because you think they have to, and I can name a lot of women who work or worked just as hard as Madonna. Please, the ass-kissing is unbecoming.



  74. 74

    Finally, she's said what people have been thinking for a year. There is a mash-up of Express Yourself and Born this way by DJ Tripp called Express this Way and the songs mash together PERFECTLY. Born this Way is slightly speed up but the chord progressions are the same and there are many simalarities in the song structure. I ike both songs but to deny their similar is complete bullshit



  75. 75

    Re: iloverickymartin – jealus?lolol madonna has nothing to prove.she never spoke about it… never…. the journalist asked her now…she answered.. she wasnt rude at all… she said the truth what everybody said.madonna speaks her mind and she never lied like gaga always does… GAGA SAID BTW DIDNT SOUND LIKE EXPRESS YOURSELF.WE ARENT DUMB…. SHE TRIED TO MAKE US LOOKED FOOL… SORRY….
    MADONNA ALWAYS SPOKE THE TRUTH…. she likes gaga and she wasnt rude

  76. bcb says – reply to this


    76

    Re: Jacksbquik – I think you missed the point totally.. Madonna admits to being inspired and paying tribute to these artists… gaga should have did the same when she made BTW. That was the point. and if you want to see original watch the Blonde Ambition tour, nothing up to that point compares to it.



  77. 77

    I like them both and cleary the song are similar, but I'm more inclined to believe if gaga copied the chord changes it was accidently. What really annoys me is that Madonna and her fans can be so hypocritical given the long list of people who she's blatantly copied or "been influenced by" in the past. Just google "madonna the thief" to see the long list of lawsuits and the many things she's ripped of throughout her career. Get over yourself Madonna.



  78. 78

    GaGa has talent, Madge is an old lady that lip syncs. Madge needs to get over herself stat!



  79. 79

    MADONNA ALL THE WAY …… gaga could just admited she copied madonna and was an homage but no she just said BTW doesnt sound like express yourself…is she dumb or what??ppl arent blind and of course madonna didnt like the way she mentioned her……. sorry gaga ..ur done …and madonna likes u cause if she didnt u would have been sued by now…. relax…. was actually a compliment



  80. 80

    PLEASEEE!!! JUST REMEMBER GAGA HELPED WITH "HUNG UP." Enough said people. Gaga didn't copied her, there's just 1 beat in the song that sounds 'similar" and that's it. I don't get why the fuck they keep comparing both? In my opinion Madonna is just being a BITCH and acting like a "queen" even though she might be one. She thinks she can say whatever she wants. I've never seen Lady Gaga say such comments against Madonna. Clearly Madonna needs to get over herself.

    ******AND PLEASE NOTICE I FUCKING HATE GAGA******* This whole conflict is fucking annoying.

    Its time to look at the facts. First off, just in the comparison of the two videos you provided, there are insane amounts of similarities. Starting with the hair; blonde with a high ponytail and slightly curled, with a piece of hair wrapped around the base. Secondly, pointy body parts. Madonna had the pointy breasts, and gaga had the pointy shoulders and cheek bones. Thirdly the dancing is very similar in regards to the choreographys timing. Obviously if you looked at it with a fine tooth comb you could gather more. Its said often that copying is the highest form of flattery, as long as you come out and say you did that. I'm not saying that gaga did completely copy Madonna but she is definitely influenced by her, much like how Madonna was influenced by Marilyn Monroe. In regards to the music, you could look at every song and see similarities to a different song from the past. Its that combined with the similar looks that create the most speculation.

    Re: TwistinMySobriety – As is your lack of intelligence… the topic here is pop music.. it is widely known that Madonna is a smart hard working woman.. We wouldnt be having this discussion 30 years after her first song if she wasnt. I think you are naive and somewhat uninformed. Respect is earned !!!! Its not ass kissing, its the fact. The fact she can still sell out statiums speaks for it self, i find it funny that all these gaga fans dispect the woman who is the main inspiration for gaga herself.



  85. 85

    whats the big deal… this is true.madonna wasnt rude…. grow up gaga fans



  86. 86

    BTW was a borderline PLAGIARISM of EY. If I was Madonna, I would have sued Gaga for that stunt.

    87

    This is off the topic but Adele is the only artist I feel out now that is totally original. She has the top selling album of the year, and she did it by releasing an album that was totally unlike anything being played on the radio. She put out an album that could not be ignored… I hope Madonna does the same this time around.



  88. 88

    she was actually very nice….. and thats the true..what do u want her to say??that BTW doesnt sound like express yourself like gaga said???? lol



  89. 89

    And what about GaGa looking like Blonde Ambition Madonna at the Grammy's performing BTW and thanking Whitney Houston? GaGa knew exactly wtf she was doing and denied it. Madonna ALWAYS admits who has inspired her images and the old Hollywood/Monroe phase was just part of her career while GaGa has copied countless Madonna video and performance ideas…NOT just paying homage to a particular look

  93. 93

    When I first heard this song, and thats the day everyone first heard it, for the rest of the day Express yourself kept playing in my head. If you're an oldie like me and you liked or knew madonna's song, this would happen. I had no intention of comparing Gaga to anyone else. So unfortuntately that was the result, so gaga's song didn't catch on I just kept hearing Madonna's song in my head.

    Re: bcb
    You are hardly qualified to discuss my intelligence (and if you want to discuss grey matter, I'll be happy to turn the discussion into that) seeing that you haven't said a smart thing since you decided to dominate the posts in here. Not only that, but you seem to lack knowledge of pop culture & history if you actually think Madonna is original. Thanks for clarifying my original intent by stating the obvious: Yes, respect is earned–duh– but it is not to be thrown around like confetti. If people choose to not respect her, that's their choice. You don't have a say in how people should pay their respects. Apparently you must have done too much drugs and poppers in the 80s, because your brain cell decrease is showing.

    Re: FatAzzPooHeadDoodle – So you are privy to what is going on in my head? Fantastic, that will save me a lot of time if you can just do all my thinking for me.

    Im gonna guess that everyone calling Madonna a has been is American and under 18. Whilst she still gets number 1 albums in the states and 4 Mins was a big hit for her American is a country so obsessed with youth then when you get to her age everyone turns against you….even though the woman reinvented pop music for women, she is a legend. Thank god the rest of the world is not so shallow and still sees her as an icon who is as relevent today as she was 20 years ago. And if you really dont think BTW sounds like Express Yourself you must be stupid, deaf or in denial. And to the people who keep making out Madonna does not know about Chords or music, she plays 3 instruments and has written or co written 95 percent of all her songs……thats 100s of songs.

    Gaga is a gimmick…..and a bad one at that.

    The only TRULY TALENTED current female artist (with commercial success) is Adele.

    Re: Monchocho – What in the hell are you talking about??? Gaga had NOTHING to do with Hung Up.

    Re: perezisadumbass – Whenever I see your mom, all I can think about is that she looks like she smells like shit and cum from the johns she picks up every night.

    I have never liked Madonna, her personality is horrid, but she became an icon because she's a smart business woman. She knows Lady Gaga copies her, who doesn't? The first thing both my friend and I thought when we heard Born This Way was, 'doesn't that sound like a Madonna song?' - and it did. It's called Express Yourself. They are both narcissists, but Madonna is the one who actually*can at least hold a *part* of her grandiose delusions as truth.
