Did Madonna Respond to Lady Gaga's Subtle Shade?

Did Madonna Respond to Lady Gaga's Subtle Shade?

Lady Gaga and Madonna have seemingly had an ongoing music-related feud for a few years now, ever since 2011 when critics claimed that Gaga‘s “Born This Way” sounded a lot like Madonna‘s “Express Yourself,” to which Gaga dismissed as “ridiculous.”

In 2015, the “Like a Virgin” singer appeared to confirm that she agreed with the critics about the similarities.

During a recent interview with Zane Lowe for Beats 1 Radio, the “Perfect Illusion” singer had some more thoughts about the Madonna comparisons.

Madonna and I are very different,” Gaga told the host. “I wouldn’t make that comparison at all. I don’t mean to disrespect Madonna … she’s a nice lady, and she’s had a fantastic, huge career. She’s the biggest pop star of all time…But I play a lot of instruments. I write all my own music. I spend hours and hours a day in the studio. I’m a producer. I’m a writer. What I do is different.”

Madonna then allegedly took to social media to post a meme of Hillary Clinton wearing dark shades and checking her phone with the text, “Can’t hear you. Too busy being awesome,” according to E! News. She also reportedly captioned it, “Like a boss! LOL,” though it seems that the original post has since been deleted.

    Her songwriting skills are awful. She may have more innate talent but she’ll never have the success of Madonna.

    sad but true. i love gaga but bragging about writing songs that are shit is a little bit counterproductive lol

  • Juan Cocco

    i was just thinking the same thing earlier when driving to my local Chili’s. I thought, why would she do this to herself? no one likes her anymore. shes a flop. mark ronson produced this????? wtf????? i thought she was gonna hit us with uptown funk part 2 the remix but um yeah no office but her dead aunt really fucked her overrun this one.. hey girl isn’t too bad of a song, but id rather listen to its predecessor “bennie and the jets”

  • Juan Cocco

    also “I play a lot of instruments.” meaning piano and guitar so a total of 2. 3 if she claims the tambourine. i thought her remark was dumb. I’m not a madonna stan or anything i like gaga more than madonna, but if i were as much a flop as her i would gladly be compared to madonna.

  • OC Bitch

    I’m not a fan of Madonna – but Madonna is Madonna. She’s a living legend – unlike Lady Gaga – and paved the way for many other female singers.

  • Mlova

    No the post by madonna was not deleted. It is still there on her Facebook.

    Gaha is getting more pathetic each “era”. Flopanne

  • daas

    Not a fan of Gaga or Madonna, but Gaga is definitely more talented and way different than Madonna, Gaga just said she’s different and hate this comparison

  • Douglas from Brazil

    Madonna is the best, why Gaga keep denying that?

  • Douglas from Brazil

    Gaga more talented? LOL.

    “It wasn’t love, It wasn’t love, It wasn’t love, It wasn’t love, it was a perfect illusion”

    dear lord.. a 5 year old can write this.

  • LaCroix

    thats your opinion & you’re entitled, but Madonna has way more hits. Each album she put out charted #1 on Billboard or as a Dance hit Granted she’s been around longer.. but her latest album just charted her 45th dance hit. Lets see Gaga even come close to that when she’s in her 50′s, or even if she’s making music anymore..

  • Lee

    Everytime gagahead releases something new she must convince potential buyers that it is legend. That marketing strategy failed with born this way, artpop, and it will fail now. Will she ever learn?

  • Joe

    ooh, burn

  • noshyte

    “Just Dance” is the only good LG song. JMO.

  • HG

    Probably went to five major Madonna tour concerts and grew up to her music and she definately has been around longer and has more hits but Gaga let’s dance CD has many great songs on it and let’s face it her voice is a notch higher than Madonna who is more entertainment like Britney Spears than all voice like adel or Celine Dion . But after her offering free blow jobs to anyone who Votes for killary made me dislike her as a woman! Classy she’s not !! Bill Clinton probably voted first lmao.

  • Antonio Beardall

    Are you dense? Madonna has always been Madonna, and says and does things tongue-in-cheek, then the media runs with it as fact, then idiots like you believe and crucify her for having a twisted sense of humor. Madonna has 30 years of music under her belt, has written some great songs, and is not only entertainment. She can write. So give me a break talking about her not being classy. A meat dress? For attention? Seems like entertainment to me too.

  • Antonio Beardall

    She also said, outright, that Madonna does not write or produce. I mean, how dare they nominate her for song writing hall of fame, right? Idiot.

  • SAx

    of course she deleted coward old hag.. her obsession with gaga since day 1 has been unreal especially after gaga refused to share the stage with her. thankfully. her whole career has been striving on feuds. that’s sad..her obsessed fans run Gaga hate blogs and accounts all over social media because insecure.

  • namers

    I just finished watching SNL and her new song sounded like other country rock songs with her tell-tale repeat stupid lines thrice trick. One trick pony.

  • Arx

    liar!!! You only comment on Gaga. You’re one of her diehard fans that kisses her ass regardless of what garbage she produces. Joanne is her worst album to date by far. Not only that but she consistently rips off Madonna.

  • Pedro Marmol

    insecurity…since day one she has been seen as a madonna tribute act

  • Pedro Marmol

    lol…gaga is a joke..where are her fans now??

  • Josh

    I dont know how more ridiculous you could get, Gaga is the one with the obsession which was cool until she turned into a lying idiot, about like you so you’re even matched. Gagas fans are crazier than Madonna’s could ever be…they make the news for being crazy.

  • Josh

    snicker what a joke

  • Mlova

    She didn’t delete it. It’s on her Facebook.

  • Mlova

    Her fans? Probably in a psychiatric unit having treatment for personality disorders

  • REALITY

    GAGA’s Floplem is that she writes her own songs actually, and thinks she’s is this female music picasso. #MessiahComplex :D

    That shouldn’t be something to be proud of. Katy Perry outGagaed Lady Gaga.
