Allegedly, Madonna asked Lady Gaga to perform a song with her onstage but Lady Gaga turned her down. Madonna explained: “You know, I invited her onstage to sing with me. But, she turned me down. It’s okay. I’ve been rejected before. It builds a little character.”
This is funny coming from Madonna. Despite MDNA‘s commercial performance, this women’s ego remains exponentially inflated. Did she forget how many times she insulted and ridiculed Lady Gaga in public? Or the fact that she still covers Gaga’s “Born This Way” in her live shows segued with “Express Yourself” to further beat the dead horse of the similarities between the song.
Still, Madonna expects Lady Gaga to run to her feet when asked? The truth is the new generation is more inclined with Gaga. Even if Madonna is iconic, it would do nothing for Gaga to perform with her. Being iconic never shifted album copies, just ask Grace Jones.
So, Madonna’s at it again. Raising controversy to shift more copies of her new album MDNA, which hasn’t even passed the half a million mark in sales since its release more than two months ago. Not that album sales matter to us, but it sure does to her.
Anyway, here the diva keeps beating a dead horse with the notion that Lady Gaga has stolen “Born This Way” from “Express Yourself.” As if that wasn’t enough of a hint of Gaga’s supposed plagiarism, Madonna force feeds the audience a lyric from her song “She’s Not Me” to further confirm her alleged claims.
It’s quite a sad thing to see a 53 year old woman pushing onto the world – especially an established one. Had she based her career on her talents and not this blatant controversy-seeking she would be selling as many record as Ciara now. Yeah, we said it.
When we first read the interview we were enraged. “Retarded” should never be used in that manner. We’ve gotten into disputes over that before. It irks us everytime we hear it and it’s in big usage with a lot of people. We have to say that she fell from our eye a little bit, if you know what we mean. Now she is apologizing for it. She asserted: “I consider it part of my life’s work and music to push the boundaries of love and acceptance. My apologies for not speaking thoughtfully. To anyone that was hurt, please know that it was furiously unintentional. An honest mistake, requires honesty to make. Whether life’s disabilities, left you outcast bullied or teased, rejoice and love yourself today.” Alright then, Gaga.
