Madonna Takes Swipe at Lady Gaga, Jokes That She Helped “Write” Born This Way


By Daniel Gates



Madonna took a new swipe at Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” during a recent Brazilian television interview, continuing to draw attention to the similarities between the hit and her own “Express Yourself.”

The Material Girl says she’s a “big fan” of Gaga’s song before adding, “I’m glad that I could help her write it.”


It’s not the first time Madonna has jabbed Gaga over the song.

Last January, Madonna told Newsweek she thought the similarities between the two songs were “interesting” and said her first thought upon hearing “Born This Way” was, “What a wonderful way to redo my song.”

She later created an “Express Yourself”/”Born This Way” mashup that she performed on her world tour.

What do you think about the ongoing Madonna/Gaga “Born This Way” controversy?
