Lady Gaga: I Was 'Floored' When Madonna Covered My Song

Lady Gaga: I Was 'Floored' When Madonna Covered My Song

Madonna rocks a cool pair of black-rimmed glasses as she heads out to grab some dinner on Friday night (November 8) in New York City.

The 55-year-old entertainer was joined by her kids Lourdes, 17, Rocco, 13, David, 8, and Mercy, 8.

“I have to be really honest, I was completely kind of floored that Madonna was singing my song on her stage every night!” Lady Gaga says in the latest issue of Attitude magazine (via LA Times). “I mean, Madonna‘s…she’s Madonna. I looked up to her for a long time. I’m not quite sure what her intention was — to do that in the show, but I don’t really care.”

Gaga added, “All it meant to me was that Madonna Ciccone was singing my song on her stage and I’m 27. And as a punk-rocker from New York, I’ve basically been hoping that I would become so good that one day I would piss off Madonna!”

    Lady Gaga is Queen of Pop. Madonna who?? Lady Gaga is the number one female artist on the planet. She has dethroned them all. It took her 3-5 years. Lady Gaga is the Meryl Streep of music. She fücking rocks.

    @Tres: AHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

  • Bob


    In your dreams. Madonna is the top selling female artist of all time, not to mention the highest grossing solo tour artist of all time and so on.

    Gaga is already flopping and during this time in Madonnas career, she released one of the biggest selling albums of all time (True Blue) and a timeless classic (Like a Prayer)

  • Shamu

    She sang it so that people would hear that Gaga’s song was a watered down copy of Express Yourself. Gaga is a gonner, her album flopped badly.

  • Amy


    Lady Gaga has jumped the shark. Her first album was pretty good but none of her songs are memorable. Can you remember the lyrics?

  • Mejay

    …”a punk rocker from New York…” really??? I didn’t know true punk rockers aspired to be mainstream pop artists.

  • ArtTrash

    flop ga is so 2 years ago .

  • Cameron

    I never knew who Madonna was until I knew gaga and gaga is epic, brave, and strong. Born this Way didn’t flop it was amazing I explains she’s not afraid to be her god damn self so all you bitches out there get a life and leave gaga and Madonna at peace.

  • Bowie’s g-a-y lover Mick

    Sorry, but Gaga is over.

  • Honey

    @Tres: honey, she is the Spice Girls of female solo performers. It took her 5 years to lose most of her fanbase and sales. Then again you are so delusional, talking to you is like talking to a piece of coal.

  • Bob


    If you didnt know who Madonna was before Gaga then you must have been living under a rock.

  • Tres

    Lady Gaga is #1 in more countries than Madonna. Lady Gaga has dethroned that talentless old whóre. Lady Gaga is Queen of Pop Music.

  • Geoerge


    Lady Gaga hasnt even dethroned Rihanna let alone Madonna

  • zacfan

    lady gaga needs more than her meat dress to dethrone madonna. did she really say punk rocker who swf’d her roomie who eventually committed suicide?

  • LaCroix

    I find it funny as hell that Gaga continue’s to talk about Madonna after all her friends bash her on twitter.. hypocrite.

  • Dotty

    Gaga scares people. Shes become such a freak show with her costumes, makeup and behavior and her music of late has been terrible.

  • Amy


    I don’t know if she scares people necessarily. Before I felt like she was doing performance art and there was a message behind it.

    Now it seems like she just wants attention.

  • mlllllllllllllllllllllef

    punk rocker ?
    So she is still smoking weed for her hip injury….

  • http://verytrue EAST ASIANS CAN READ MINDS!!!!

    Asians can hear, and see what you’re visually thinking.
    THIS IS NOT A JOKE OR A MEME! This is the absolute complete truth!!!!
    Asians hide their mind reading abilities by having completely expressionless faces so they don’t accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don’t like, find funny, astonishing, etc, and Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
    Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.
    All Asians are keeping their mind reading abilities a secret, they don’t want ANYONE to know they can read minds!!! They are trying as hard as they can to hide it!
    Try thinking, and visually picturing things as wild as you can when you are around Asians, and look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason, it works if you try enough!!!

  • jeff

    Oh gaga. You are funny. Let’s see if you have to cancel your tour again because of a “hip injury” and not the fact that ticket sales in the US were not selling to sold out crowds. Madonna’s tour was the top tour and she’s been around for 30 years. Madonna is a legend. Le’t's see what Gaga is doing when she is 55. I am not even sure if she will be in Vegas (not even on the strip)

  • jeff

    and by the way Gaga I don’t think her singing her song came from a good place. Maybe it’s the fact that you said Whitney Houston was the inspiration for the song or maybe when you went on Jay Leno and said her people emailed you and said they loved it and then they said they never emailed you. Should of just owned up to the fact that maybe she was an inspiration. From the beginning of your career she was always supportive of you but then you got really desperate and pathetic. Go katy she respects the Queen!!!!!


    @Shamu: GAGA The GREAT !! Stop with your lies about Gaga. ARTPOP The album does not go on sale until 11/11/2013 , so how is she a flop if the album is not out until then. Madonna sung Born This way and even did Gaga’s dance moves because she is obsessed with anything Lady Gaga related. She loved performing that song more than she did her own songs and the crowd went wild and you heard the fans say Gaga’s name. Madonna fans are really little monsters. Madonna begged Gaga to perform with her but Gaga turned her down as she should because of the evil mean spirited comments Madonna made about Gaga. Madonna acted like a child. Imagine if Micheal Jackson or Prince did this at their concert and targeted Justin Timberlake for copying them. Neither one of them would do this because Micheal Jackson and Prince are confident that they are Kings and don’t have to stoop to the level of what Madonna did. I would be embarrassed to be a Madonna Fan. Madonna is a old jealous hag and its shows everytime Lady Gaga’s name comes up. This is sad because in the beginning Gaga only said nice things about Madonna.


    @Geoerge: GAGA The GREAT !! Gaga has dethroned Rihanna and Madonna. Rihanna was never any competition. Madonna is the old queen of pop but Whitney Houston is the REAL Queen of Pop in that time. It’s all about the money baby. Gaga makes the most and that makes her THE NEW QUEEN OF POP. She’s been on the top forbes list for years. Gaga outsells Katy Perry, Rihanna and the others by generating mega bucks for her concerts, albums and so on. They make pennies compared to LADY GAGA and they all know it. Google THE NEW QUEEN OF POP and you will get Lady Gaga.


    GAGA The GREAT !! JustJared did not post all the comments from that magazine because Gaga also said that for Madonna to sing her song at every one of her concerts that she had Gaga on her mind. Gaga also said when she performs the only thing she is thinking about is herself and her fans and no one else. PREACH GAGA. Madonna was and still is obsessed with Lady Gaga. Gaga is a threat and Madonna should be scared because in a little while no one will know who she is or care to know. She’s a old bat and a lot of young kids coming up now, have no clue who she is. Bad move Madonna. You should have worked with Gaga not against her. Lady Gaga’s Little Monsters are a force and don’t play when it comes to THE NEW QUEEN OF POP LADY GAGA.

    @Tres: Madonna = 300 million albums sold, Gaga = 24 million! Madonna’s 3rd album True Blue sold 25 million copies alone, more than all Gaga’s albums together! Madonna has the highest tour for a solo artist male or female with her $408 million Sticky & Sweet tour of 2008 and she had the biggest tour of 2012 with her $305 million MDNA tour! Gaga had to cancel her Bombed This Way tour due to poor ticket sales! (and blame it on a FAKE hip injury! There is NO WAY Gaga can catch up with Madonna’s MASSIVE achievements!

  • JP

    Lady Gaga dethroned Madonna to become queen of pop, and of course, Madonna is sulking because of it. Madonna had a good streak, now it’s Gaga’s turn.

  • RObert

    Obviously more than half of you here don’t know how to read. She knows she pissed off Madonna. Shes not dumb. She knows exactly why she sang BTW. One more thing the comment about the SpiceGirls. They were HUGE! HUGE!!! one of the best female groups of all time. They decided not to sing anymore. Thats it. Just because people arnt performing well into their 60′s (rolling stones, madonna, paul m) does not mean they are flops.

  • alexander

    Lady Gaga has sold 9 million albums so far….Madonna has sold 300 million…love them both but facts are facts

  • Dirk_Reese-Fan

    This time there is too much lip-stick on Mo´s lips, yep !
    217, give me 5, makes 222, 168 !
    Highhhhhhhh 5

  • Donny

    @Geoerge: @Geoerge: First off, Rihanna doesn’t even write her own music. She doesn’t even deserve to be even thought about in this situation.

  • C

    The album isn’t even released yet. How do you proposed it flopped already?

  • Brittany89

    LOL at the desparate Lady Gaga fans trying to make Madonna out to be a desperate has been. LOL. First of all, who the hell knows what Madonna was doing when she covered BTW on her tour…Was it Madonna being bitchy? Maybe. Was Madonna giving a nod and a wink to Lady Gaga? Probably. Do both Madonna and Lady Gaga play up this feud? Definiely. People need to calm down. Madonna and Gaga are cool. Madonna never said anything to defame Gaga and Gaga never said anything to defame Madonna. Both are good, but Gaga will never match Madonna. By this point in her career (3rd/4th album), Madonna was not only selling albums like no other, but she was also getting critical acclaim…Madonna was still on the rise and had yet to even release “Vogue” or go on her Blond Ambition Tour…Madonna hadn’t even peaked yet…that would happen in 1991. Gaga has already peaked.

  • CoCoRox

    @VICTORIA, the only reason M sang Gagas tune was to show the fans how she got robbed. Gaga is FAR from Queen of Pop. M holds that title now and always. You and your bitchyness is the only one that is mean spirited here. Get your facts together, and anyone that doesn’t know who Madonna is, has probably been laying on their back for a living going by the name of Vicoria, you HO!

  • CoCoRox

    Gaga still has about 25 more years to prove herself before anyone can even compare the 2. Get your facts together, the Queen of Pop is Madonna and she always will be.
