Madonna Buries Hatchet With Lady Gaga: "I Do Love Her"
Friends, frenemies or still enemies?
Madonna has recently been trying to put an end to her ongoing feuds with Elton John and Lady Gaga.
Last month, the 54-year-old MDNA singer dedicated her song "Masterpiece" to John, 65, during a concert in Nice, France. She said she "forgives him" for calling her a "fairground stripper" and saying her career is over. At her concert in Atlantic City on Saturday, Madonna dedicated the same song to Gaga, 26, and said she'd like to collaborate with her.
"You wanna know something? I love her," she told the crowd. "I love her. I do love her. Imitation is the highest form of flattery."
"One day, very soon, we're going to be on stage together. Just you wait," she added. "You think I'm kidding? I love Lady Gaga."
During an interview with Newsweek in January 2012, Madonna slammed Gaga's single "Born This Way" for its similarities to her 1989 song "Express Yourself." "I thought, this is a wonderful way to redo my song," she told the mag. "I mean, I recognized the chord changes. I thought it was . . . interesting."
In April 2012, NME asked Gaga if she noticed her song was a knockoff of Madonna's hit. "What a completely ridiculous thing to even question me about . . . If you put the songs next to each other, side by side, the only similarities are the chord progression," Gaga argued. "It's the same one that's been in disco music for the last 50 years. Just because I'm the first f---ing artist in 25 years to think of putting it on Top 40 radio, it doesn't mean I'm a plagiarist, it means that I'm f---ing smart. Sorry."
