    wow, she was actually pretty nice.

  2. GIO says – reply to this


    2

    She was nice…but seems annoyed….single white female ishhhhh

    Seriously it finally was said. It was very nice but matter of fact like everyone knows it already.



  3. 3

    Re: GIO – yeah, exactly. it's weird that pezie makes it out to be an attack?! wtf?! i watched it and thought ”QUEEN BITCH is being pretty nice. poor gaga though!! lol



  4. 4

    " they both bring something new to the table"?????
    K, only of them actually brought something new, the other just flat out copied the other!



  5. 5

    she was really nice.. not rude at all. she likes gaga but of course she didnt like the fact gaga used express yourself sample without permission, and even worst gaga said BTW was an homage to whitney houston..is she kidding??? and she even said at jay leno that madonna sent her an email….. and it was false.. GROW UP GAGA…. u tried to foll madonna.. and PEREZ WASNT MADONNA FANS THAT SAID GAGA COPIED…. EVERYBODY SAYS IT…..
    anyway.. madonna was very nice and i wish that in interview they would stop talk about this question.M alreday answer



  6. 6

    I like them both but not a huge fan of either. How is "Born this Way" Madonna s ? or similar?



  7. 7

    and madonna didnt said gaga is a copycat…. she was nice.she said she has talent… what i dont agree… she was just WTF when she heard BTW at radio….. and MADONNA IS ABSOLUTELY RIGHT…
    THE PROBLEM is that if gaga had admited that she copied madonna or something like an homage it would be normal now…. but she said BTW doesnt sound like express yurself…she lied….about amny things. madonna could sued her.. and she didnt… so madonna was very nice

  9. 9

    Express Yourself was itself a copy of someone else's song– Respect Yourself by the Staple Singers. That's the real reason Madonna didn't sue Gaga. What comes around goes around. Neither one of those pop tarts is original. Madonna has also borrowed a lot of ideas and imagery from Debbie Harry and Marilyn Monroe.



  10. 10

    I like GaGa's music but Madonna is the ultimate icon and has done it all (and stuff 20 years ago that most wouldn't dare do today). GaGa has talent but Madonna paved the way by being the most important and significant female figure in music. Before the Madonna haters claim Madge copied Marilyn let me state the difference is Madge paid homage to a dead icon and the material girl video was ironic bc in the end Madonna doesn't pick the materia l lifestyle. Madonna has also been up front about influences in music (Debbie Harry etc) and in her videos where as GaGa vehemently denies copying Madonna when she hadn't been accused just once but dozens of times without giving credit



  11. 11

    She seemed really restrained. Somehow, I imagine her private response to Born This Way was a little less lady-like!



  12. 12

    Thank you, Madonna.



  13. 13

    perez just tried to trash madonna on the radio…. like saying she was a bitch… the radio host said MADONNA IS ABSOLUTELY RIGHT… and perez shut up…..

    madonna is right yes.she never talked cause she is nice…but cynthia asked her… she had to answer… the one that was disrespectful was gaga…. SAYING BTW WAS A TRIBUTE TO WHITNEY… RIDICULOUS….. madonna is not a fool. gaga played with fire…. she likes her ,yes she does, and gaga stabed her in the backs….

    gaga stabed madonna in the backs.she could have everything from madonna but she prefered to act like a dumbass… sorry madonna is right

    Re: Kimble – i can hear your pee running down your leg. u need to watch that. ;-)



  15. 15

    Both are sooooooo overrated…



  16. 16

    u have the BALLS M…. thank u



  17. 17

    Re: Kimble – Completely agree w/ you.



  18. 18

    Re: Kimble – no dear… ur wrong…. madonna payed many homages yes.. but her type of career is pretty unique.noone reinvented themselfs like madonna does… noone changes so much like M always did… u wrong…. and no M didnt sued gaga cause they are cool.they went to shows and stuff. gaga was damn wrong. and its not only about express yourself its about performances and stuff.so shut up…. LOOKS, PERFORMANCES, VIDEOS, SHOWS, ALL COPIED… EVEN QUOTES ON INTERVEIWS… madonna never did that… she payed homages …not copy



  19. 19

    She looks gooood:)



  20. 20

    OH PULEEEZ… AND MADONNA COPIED A LOT OF HER EARLY WORK FROM CINDI LAUPER AND CHER. WHATEVER… THAT'S HOW MUSIC EVOLVES. IT'S ALWAYS ONE GENERATION TAKING A BIT FROM AN EARLIER GENERATION AND EXPANDING FROM THERE. HOW IS THIS A SECRET FATBOY???? IT ISNT!! NEXT…



  21. 21

    Im glad madonna is keeping it REAL and calling it as she sees it!! Gaga is madonna 2.0 from head to toe. Gaga is a fake she has no identity she is known as the poor mans madonna. And gaga has also copied Britney and xtina and many others!! Gaga and original do not belong in the same sentence.



  22. 22

    Re: Kimble – And what about Debbie Harry? LOL How did Madonna copy her imagery? I hope you're not talking abut the blond hair, that would be pathetic. Style-wise, they were completely different. musically too, Blondie was more rockish, Madonna was dance music, than pop, so… what is the point you were trying to make?



  23. 23

    its all G fault… if she said she copied M or was a homage it would be ok…. but her fake attitude was the worst part and im sure M was hurt by that… when she said BTW WAS A TRUBUTE TO WHITNEY.,…she never mentioned madonna..what the hell she wanted??? M is right everybody agrees



  24. 24

    Re: Chloe Canacalon – kimble is a little turd who can stop urinating on *it's* own leg. lolll



  25. 25

    Re: xcalibur – shut up… amdonna hs nothing similar to cher or cindy.. madonna always had those looks at the 70s and 80s.. madonna songs or videos werent similar to both…. shut up.. one thing is an homage..another is stealing… and gaga stole it and worst she said it was a whitney tribute nd EVEN CALLED PPL RETARDED CAUSE PPL WERE SAYING THIS SOUNDED LIKE EXPRESS YOURSELF….SHAME ON GAGA..,.

    MADONNA WAS PRETTY NICE WITH HER…. madonna career is unique.with theatrical shows, never seen before, huge videos, oustragious looks. and always changing and send strong messages. dbbie or cher or cyndi never did that.shut up… MADONNA IS HERE FOR 30 YEARS.. AND WHAT GAGA DID TO HER WAS THE MOST DISRESPECTFUL THING EVER… she lied



  26. 26

    madonna just spoke cause cynthia asked. monsters dont need to be made cause gaga attitude was alwasy rude to madonna…. M never said anything and she was pretty nice..so…everybdoy says M is right. gaga could say she was inspired by madonna but she lied and said BTW doesnt sound like express yourself….gaga is a dumb



  27. 27

    God bless u madonna for saying the truth.. this was gaga fault. she did a huge mistake trying to make madonna look like a fool



  28. 28

    Re: lington – fuck you homo…. stop writing like a 12 yr old. pay attention in grade school and stop texting on the internet when the teach has her back turned around. next.



  29. 29

    madonna was very civil, she also said she thought the song was REDUCTIVE, lol….so when lady gags told leno that madonna called her and said it was ok-WAS A LIE??? i think so



  30. 30

    if G said sorry to M…. if she said it was a tribute to M ..but she said it was to whitney. ridiculous

    they could be huge friends. like M is with britney….. sad that gaga didnt respected M….



  31. 31

    We dont love them both. We only love the original. MADONNA!

    Gaga is the biggest fake!



  32. 32

    Re: tuckeye – yes the email story was a lie…. i think this war started right there.cause gaga said M sent her an email and M staff said it was false and then gaga said BTW was a tribute to whitney lolol. GAGA IS A FAKE LIKE I ALWAYS SAID



  33. 33

    She's being polite and holding herself back, but I think it's pretty clear what she thinks: "Who's this transvestite copying me all the time".

    And she is. Parts of the Marry The Night Video are COPIED, exactly copied, from the Hung Up video.

    And when I heard Born This Way for the first time, I thought it sounded like Madonna, and not inspired BY Madonna but copied FROM Madonna.

    She's encouraging for everybody to be who they are, yet everything about her is a copied rip off.



  34. 34

    Gaga is a copycat turd. She will be a nobody in a year.



  35. 35

    sorry but i stand for madonna and im sure M likes her like she said shes very talented she could be more serious and not ake like gaga always is



  36. 36

    Re: lington – EXACTLY! I mean I don't like that woman, but if she said that it sampled that song because it's an homage, it would be kind of okay. If she said, her style was influence by (insert artist name here) it would be kind of okay, but she pretends like she comes up with all these GREAT ideas when it's OTHER ARTISTS, WHO CAME UP WITH THEM FIRST AND SHE JUST COPIED THEM!



  37. 37

    Way to try to keep yourself relevant, HAGdonna.



  38. 38

    Lady Schnozola is a fraud and a huge thief. It's TRUE!! Massive phony!



  39. 39

    Re: lington
    "one thing is an homage..another is stealing…"
    Girl, please with the homage thing. Bitch has been homage-ing for 30 years. So are you saying she's an homage artist?



  40. 40

    She looks really good lol im shocked and she's telling the truth without being a bitch, i love her for that



  41. 41

    I saw GAGA's "Born this Way" music video for the first time yeasterday; I DON'T LIKE THE BITCH, but damn SHE'S GOT A ROCK'IN BODY in that video…..!



  42. 42

    Madonna was very classy! She could have been catty but instead took the high road!



  43. 43

    Madonna. Queen.



  44. 44

    Re: rosebud99 – i know!! she seemed nice when u consider all this talk about her being a bitch!! lol



  45. 45

    Re: BeeLahhveRe: CaliCoyote – LUV IT!! madonna was nice about the ultimate copycat slag aka gagles!! :-)



  46. 46

    Re: My Cheating Huband is Under the Patio – what body? gaga has the body of every meth head alkie… shouldn't you be downloading marry the night?? your leader needs a hit!! lollllll



  47. 47

    Re: It'sASecretBitch – yeah. the most successful female of all time is trying to stay relevant. lol no, 'tard, it's your man gaga who tries desperately to stay relevant and failed miserably last year with her flop ”album of the decade” :-) when's her X book commin' out?? lmfao!!



  48. 48

    I don't know if it was the interviewer trying to act like the super cool Mom, but Madonna seemed slightly annoyed throughout the whole interview. There were even times she made the lady look stupid for asking stupid questions, like when the interviewer was throwing out ideas for what Madonna should do for her Super Bowl act, like dropping in from the sky, and Madonna was like, "Uh, there's a ceiling over the stadium!"



  49. 49

    Re: GoodBoyNC – i LUV madonna but she's not the warmest person. i think i love her more because she is QUEEN BITCH! although here she was almost nice about that mangina gaga.



  50. 50

    Re: Mrpink1990 – YES!



  51. 51

    Re: Phibes – as usual you're right!! XO



  52. 52

    Madonna honest and unplugged…. just the way she always is……
    the main problem is not the fact that gaga used express yourself sample… madonna doenst care for that.is the fact tht madonna was always amazing to Gg. and gaga never cared…. what gaga did with her attitude was like stabbing a knife on madonnas back…

    when gaga said BTW doesnt saodn like express yoursefl and when gaga called ppl retarded for mentioned that and when gaga said BTW WAS A HOMAGE TO WHITNEY HOUSTON… WHY SHE ACT LIKE THTA WITH MADONN

    MADONNA WAS NCE TO HER LIKE SHE WAS NICE TO BRITNEY… BRIT NEVER USED MADONNA…. GAGA USED… SHE STABBS MADONNA AND THEN SHE CMES TO THE PRESS AND SAYS SHE ADMIRES MADONNA.WTF… is she kidding??????? she should say sorry to madonna…. and madonna only spke about it cause cynthia asked…. she never tried to destroy gaga or be rude to her



  53. 53

    Re: GoodBoyNC – i cant wait to see the 3rd part and cant wait to watch graham norton tonight…. no she wasnt at all…. love them both cynthia and M.



  54. 54

    M is tired about those questions…



  55. 55

    What about the fact that some of Madonna's reinventions and sounds came right out of gay clubs and clubs no one would admit to going in and she brought it to the main stream. I have seen videos of dance moves even songs that evolved into Madonna looks sounds moves. Voguing and Waacing were started in the 70's. Jerry Lee Lewis often used religious ideologies even fire to question sex (and dated people half his age). I don't think Madonna pulled from him but it has been done. The more you study music the more you see there is nothing new under the sun. Just because Madonna and GaGa seem to have a similar creative message makes their work complimentary. Madonna has been around waaaaaayyyy to long and borrowed waaaaaay to much not to know that. It makes her more relevant to seem a tad annoyed.



  56. 56

    that is so true - britney never used madonna - gags befriended her and worked with madonna even, then turned around and started stealing everything about madonna…then LIED about it…be yourself bullshit is bullshit because gags herself isnt being herself, loser bitch



  57. 57

    madonna has always said this or that inspired her or she was recreating it, whereas lady gags says she is completely orginal - "i dress like this all the time" - when clearly she does not! madonna pays credit where it is due, lady gags does not, shes full of lies, SO GET IT RIGHT NEXT TIME



  58. 58

    I like Madonna and I love Gaga…I wonder how many of the people who have made negative comments have actually seen both ladies in concert? I have seen both multiple times (Madonna at all stages of her career)…madonna was good in her time…different. Gaga is much more edgy than Madonna, not to mention at 24 y.o. a superstar..Madonna did not have that fame until she was in her 30's….Gaga has talent that is way beyond Madonna…Gaga writes her own music…Madonna did not do that until after the True Blue album….I feel in terms of talent and voice there is no comparison…GAGA is queen…however, people who cannot see the difference will continue to compare….



  59. 59

    I don't hear Born This Way in Express Yourself either….Both are good and glad both songs exist….Instead of comparing these ladies, can we all just be so glad they EXIST? Cannot wait to see them both on tour this year….Madonna will be good, GAGA great….just as it has been.

    Fact, Gaga is a copy-cat. She's lucky that the people she copies don't sue her. I don't understand how she can copy another artists song or act almost completely and not even ask permission and then pretend it's all her.

    I liked Gaga's first CD put after Alejandro, which was a copy of Ace of Base's song Don't Turn Around, and now Born This Way which was a copy of Madonna's Express Yourself I'm done with Gaga. Not to mention she copied the acts of Cher and Bette Midler without giving credit. She's unbelievable and I can't believe she thinks she can keep fooling people. I think it's highly arrongant and completely unoriginal. The only credit I give Gaga is that she is a very good piano player but that doesn't give her license to rip off other artists and not give them credit and then lie to everyone about it when it's obvious it's what she's done.

  66. FS says – reply to this


    66

    Re: sanfran1 – That's not true. Madonna married Sean Penn when she was 27. She was already famous for at least 3 years by that point.



  67. 67

    Now I also hear that Madonna says GaGa's song sounded "reductive," and when the interviewer asked her was that good or bad, Madonna replied, "Look it up!" LOL
    I do like Lady GaGa, but I can't wait to see that.



  68. 68

    Re: sanfran1 – your so full of shit!!



  69. 69

    sounds like madge is going after gagas balls

    as i said feb feb gagas last stand and down she goes madge sniffs this downfall or she wouldnt come out to play with such gusto.. she knows its the end for la gaga..

    gagas fans wont be able to buy anything of hers once the parents snap off their allowance and dont forget the parents ARE MADONNA FANS …



  70. 70

    Re: sanfran1 – THE ONLY reason gaga is so famous is that perez stuc her on his site day and night if not she would of been a has been before now..



  71. 71

    Madonna copies other artists and has no room to talk in my opinion. Her song 'Hung Up' steals ABBA's music from 'Gimme Gimme Gimme' outright. Pretty much the same song, just different lyrics. peh! on the whole lot of them.



  72. 72

    Wow.. i can't believe she sounded so lady like about it.. she didn't even say "retarted" once xD ahh.. I think she handled it really well and acknowledged in a classy way that gaga references to her a lot lol.. and hey I don't even really like Madonna at all, so my opinion isn't bias..
    But i have to say some of the slow one's in here just come up with anything to justify gaga stealing.. I mean some say Madonna stole from others.. personally I never saw that.. but i remember her in interviews acknowledging that she was influenced by this or that.. so i don't get the argument that she "stole" anything.. she isn't trying to hide it.. same thing goes for you idiots that keep mentioning "Marilyn Monroe" over and over and over.. holy fuck.. Do you really think she was trying to hide it? Do you really think the public did not realize that she looked like Marilyn?? No shit!?
    almost every fucking artist seems to have some weird thing for Marilyn and always does a pictorial of her.. It was obvious and everyone knew and im pretty sure madonna has said that was one of her Influences..
    The difference these idiotic fans are NOT obviously understanding at all, is that Madonna doesn't hide her influences and calls it original where's Lady Gaga can't give credit for fucking shit and thinks her ideas came from the gift of the god in her imagination, when really it came from her looking over her shoulder at other artists..
    that's the difference



  73. 73

    Come on, Madonna! Who are you kidding? You came out in 1983 in lacy lingerie, something that Prince and Vanity 6 had already done in 1981! You stole from them and their sexually explicit performances. You stole from Marilyn Monroe, and many, many others to this date. You still steal, and now you have the AUDACITY to criticize Lady Ga Ga. OH, that's right. You're trying to make a come back. My bad.



  74. 74

    Re: Kimble – THANK YOU!! That makes two of us that know some music history…



  75. 75

    Re: FatAzzPooHeadDoodle – We hate to hurt your feelings, but your Queen has not had the album success in years that she used to have. Lady GaGa clearly stole her spotlight, which already dwindled due to world renowned stars like JLO and Angelina. Fewer people are talking about her and she can't handle it. Attacking someone who is successful in her own right is not how "legends" behave. Example: What starlett did Elizabeth Taylor ever attack?



  76. 76

    Another thing that is different is millions of people have acknowledged that Madonna reinvented herself and challenged taboos the way no other artist did back then.. she did so many things first that no others have done.. you can keep deluding yourselves thinking she didn't but that past reads otherwise and it is a fact..almost everyone knows.. but for some reason because some of you can't realize and give credit where credit is due because you are obsessed with your idol and her message..
    putting others down making shit up, just makes you look stupid.. and will never convince she is better than a icon who changed how a artist can present themselves..



  77. 77

    oh and whoever said Madonna is a copy of Cindy Lauper or Blondie is a complete fucking moron.. omg they are nothing alike! you don't know shit!
    I don't like Madonna but even I can give credit where it is due! If you don't like her that is perfectly okay but if you can't admit when songs sound exactly the same or looks from other artists.. then you are becoming delusional and you are not honest.. that makes sense though.. because for as long as I have started to see Gaga looking undeniably like other artists, she has also never given credit to the people she takes from…



  78. 78

    Another difference some wont admit is that a straight copy is different from a influence.. BTW sounds almost exactly like Express Yourself.. It is undeniable, intelligent people have realized it..
    if one or 2 of Madonna's songs sounds similar to some other artist like i'm reading, then it isn't obvious enough like this situation to make a big deal out of.. people say Katy Perry's E.T. sound like t.a.t.u. but it isn't obvious enough to say she down right stole it..
    So if Madonna is stealing as much as these immature people or tweens are saying then it would of been a big deal then and now..
    no one is faces the differences or facts.. i'm pretty sure i'll hear some bullshit sense delusion makes you say the craziest things.. like if i had all the gaga on camera murdering a cat or something, I'm pretty positive all her hardcore fans would justify it or scream and say she didn't..i think sampling songs is stealing or lazy..but maybe if gaga was more honest it wouldn't even be a big deal.. seems most of her fans don't even know the real her before she made up this persona..ignorance must be bliss..



  79. 79

    She has really matured after all these years. The old Madonna would have said " Yes she copied me and thats ok because that proves how awsome I am" or somthing like that. Words of wisdom to the little monsters learn from your mistakes bashing Xtina because carma is a bitch you tried to distory her but caca's album was a flopp and people are getting sick of her. If you try to do the same to Madonna kiss caca's career good bye because you can't hurt an artist like those woman they have history under blet caca hasn't been around that long.



  80. 80

    That's retarded. If you put the Born This Way and Express Yourself next to each other, side by side, the only similarities are the chord progression. It's the same one that's been in disco music for the last 50 years. Just because I'm the first f—ing 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—ing smart. Sorry.



  81. 81

    I am a fan of both artists, but honestly, the only similarities between the two songs, are the fact they both have the 80's vibe. It doesnt sound similar, and I find it very lovely that all these Madonna fans such as lington and FatPoodleHead or whatever the hell his screen name is, seems to forget that Madonna has been accused her ENTIRE career for ripping off other people. The general audience, moves past bullshit like that, and enjoys the music.

    Hands down, even though I love both of them, Lady Gaga is way more talented. Lady Gaga in the few short years she has been around, has managed to continue to reinvent herself, whereas Madonna, is 53 years old, and is making now terrible music. Her new single is absolutely rancid, and she is only featuring Nicki Minaj and MIA because she wants a number one on the BillBoard chart. Her last good album that was worth anything, was Confessions On A Dance Floor.

    Madonna has been dealing with criticsm from the very beginning of her career and she is still around, granted not very relevant unless she's releasing something, and the same goes for Lady Gaga. Twenty years from now, Gaga will still be around, as much you haters dont want her to be.

    If you truly hate Gaga, then stop repeatedly trolling PerezHilton.com for any references to her, simply so you can comment something mean. The comments are always the SAME exact people. Honey, get off the computer and go get a life.

    And Lington, please learn proper grammar.



  82. 82

    Re: nickymeatball – Ok little monster!! Gaga will be a has been in 20 years!!



  83. 83

    MADONNA COPIES. PERIOD!! That is what she does. She has never had an original idea. That is a proven fact. Just do a search. The images and law suits are all over the web. Stop dreaming.



  84. 84

    Re: 2beright – Take your own advice and stop dreaming!!



  85. 85

    out of all of the things madonna could have said about gaga, she was really nice to her. I don't know why gaga fans complain. At least Madonna didn't lie about "receiving an email". Remember when gaga said she received an email from madonna saying she love BTW?.. OK! that's low



  86. 86

    Re: nickymeatball – you're obviously trying hard, and i applaud that, but no one knows who u are or what you're screaming about! lol :-)



  87. 87

    Re: 2beright – stop talking about gaga like that!! we all know gaga is called lady xerox, copycat, etc. for a reason but maybe u should go a little easy on gags. bitch had a rough year! all those flops off of her ”album of the decade” and flop book and flop tv special and no matter how many times gaga performed marry the night or edge of glory all her singles flopped and flopped hard. even her videos flopped!! now go download marry the night and help your pop star because it's smells pretty much ovah!! lmao! :-)



  88. 88

    All this singers in one way or another have taken a page from Madonna's book, but Lady Gaga is just being a Madonna Xerox and everyone can see it. Glad to see The Imperial Queen of Pop is back. Get ready for new M.D.N.A 2012 ♥



  89. 89

    I just don't see the hype and not going to force a way for it to work either, as others do. I was around in the 80's nightclubbing, dancing to Madonna stuff, so I am very familiar with her songs and the beat. In no way did I ever associate "Born This Way" with "Express Yourself" when I first heard it. Entirely two different songs…and I truly love both artists. They are both unique in their own ways and have contributed much to modern culture. Just enjoy the moments and move on…this is getting old.



  90. 90

    The chord progressions in Express Yourself are not original, the songs may be somewhat similar, but to accuse Gaga of stealing it is preposterous. I was a real Madonna fan - went to a lot of her concerts - Like a Virgin, Blond Ambition, Girlie Show. If you don't have Dear Jessie memorized, you are not a true fan! I kid. That said, Madonna hasn't had a good song in over a decade. She is remarkable - she should be admired for what she has achieved (let's face it, she achieved a lot, with not the best looks, voice, etc). Lady Gaga, antics aside, is the better musician by a mile. Ask Madonna to sit at a piano with a mic and belt out a ballad…would never happen. There's room for both of them. Madonna seems trite and smug here. Get over yourself!



  91. 91

    Gaga is not original, not her name, not her fashion, not her act. She steals. Bette Midler called her out on it, and now Madonna has as well. BRAVO!

    My favorite Madonna moment this weekend, however, was when she beat Elton John for best song at the Golden Globes after he remarked she didn't stand a chance. Seeing his boated scowl as she accepted her award was priceless.

    BTW: "Reductive" is my new favorite word and Lana Del Rey is my go-to girl for original music.

    2012 is all about Karma, attractive people and yay!
