Truth rating: 10

Lady Gaga addressed the controversy surrounding her song, “Born This Way,” which some claim is a rip off of Madonna‘s “Express Yourself.”

While appearing on the “Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” the talk show host asked her about the comparison, and Lady Gaga responded by first saying, “There is really no one that is a more adoring or loving Madonna fan than me. I am the hugest fan personally and professionally.”

Then the singer told the audience that she received an e-mail from Madonna and her people “sending me their love and complete support on behalf of the single. And if the queen says it shall be, then it shall be.”

Check out the video below of Lady Gaga talking about the controversy.
