Madonna: “Lady Gaga Copied Me”
MADONNA thinks Lady GaGa‘s single Born This Way is similar to her smash hit Express Yourself.
Critics had pointed out similarities between the tunes, but Madonna herself had been quiet on the subject until now!
“When I heard it on the radio …I said that sounds very familiar,” Madonna told ABC News. “It felt reductive.
“I certainly think she references me a lot in her work. And sometimes I think it’s amusing and flattering and well done.”
Madonna recently admitted she is a “details freak”.
“I wouldn’t go so far as to say I’m a control freak, but I am a detail freak. I chose the costumes, the locations, the lamps, the tables, the carpets, the drapes — everything,” said Madonna, who directed, produced and wrote her new movie W.E.
“I also liked to put the finishing touches on the actors before they did their scenes — you know, with their hair or clothes.
“Putting on a bracelet or something on to Andrea Riseborough‘s wrist gave me an emotional connection before directing her. Some of the jewellery we used was actually Wallis Simpson’s.”
