DJ White Shadow, who helped produce Lady GaGa'sBorn This Way, has come to her defense and spoken up against people who claim it rips off Madonna'sExpress 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 ofBorn This Way? Do U agree?
"I was under a lot of pressure from a company that I was previously working with and they wanted me to lose weight fast. So, they got me with a nutritionist and had me on all these supplements and I was injecting myself."
As a result of these intense practices, the 25-year-old said she wasn't eating that much:
"It makes your body only need certain calories, so I ate 500 calories a day. This was the most unhealthy thing I'd ever done."
The gorgeous gal spilled that she went along with the unhealthy decision because she was afraid her album wouldn't get released if she didn't.
And even though JoJo followed the orders she was given, her album still wasn't released.
The artist explained that she felt awful after the injections and the supplements:
"I gained all the weight back. I felt terrible about myself. And I was upset that I even subscribed to the standard that they wanted me to be at."
Plus, the whole thing was pretty traumatic:
"I had to unpack some of the damage that being on that weird diet did to me. I couldn't work out. I didn't feel strong."
We can only imagine. So horrible.
But, we're glad that right now JoJo is happy, healthy, and touring with Fifth Harmony!
