When she first heard the track, Madonna recalls, “I thought ‘What a wonderful way to redo my song.’”
She tells Newsweek, “I mean, I recognized the chord changes. I thought it was… interesting.”
After Gaga debuted the song last February, many fans and critics felt it borrowed its melody and theme from Madonna’s 1989 single.
But she also claimed Madonna and her team were “sending me their love and complete support on behalf of the single. And if the queen says it shall be, then it shall be.”
Now, it seems, Madonna is singing a different tune.
What do you think of Madonna’s comments?
