Well, it’s about damn time…
Madonna must’ve seen the light. The pop singer dedicated her song “Masterpiece” to fellow pop star Lady GaGa, who she has had a rocky past with, in Atlantic City on Saturday.
“You wanna know something? I love her,” she told the audience. “I love her. I do love her. Imitation is the highest form of flattery.Â 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.”
The feud between the two singers started back in January 2012, when Madonna accused GaGa of copying her song “Express Yourself” in “Born This Way.” “I thought, this is a wonderful way to redo my song,” she told Newsweek. “I mean, I recognized the chord changes. I thought it was . . . interesting.”
GaGa came back at Madonna in April 2012, saying, “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 responded. “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.”
Madonna, I love ya, girl. You had it goin’ on 20 years ago. But seriously, give it up.
