Don’t get it twisted — although she respects the woman, Lady Gaga says she’s nothing at all like Madonna and would actually appreciate it if absolutely everyone would cease comparing them. Gaga laid it down for Zane Lowe on Beats 1 Radio, who stated that the two pop stars’ pasts have been related, specifically their “overprotective” fathers. Gaga responded, “Madonna and I are extremely various. Just saying. We’re quite diverse.”
She went on, ” I wouldn’t make that comparison at all and I don’t mean to disrespect Madonna — she’s a good lady, and she’s had a amazing large profession, biggest pop star of all time. But I play a lot of instruments. I write all my own music. I devote hours and hours a day in the studio. I’m a producer. I’m a writer. What I do is different.” Ouch.
Then she kept going, adding that by various, she wasn’t just “rehearsing over and over once again to place on a show.” Gaga added that she didn’t imply to sound like a enormous jerk. “I do not mean that in a disrespectful way. I just will not be compared to anybody anymore. I am who the fuck I am, and this is me.” Fair sufficient, right? It practically sounded like she was a lot more mad that Lowe brought up her pops.
Gaga continued on her small rant. “My life story is my life story, just like yours is,” she mentioned. “The issue is we all express factors in different ways, but my rebellion at my father for him being angry with me, that has ended. It’s like finally I can bite back.” OK then, Gaga. You do you and no a single will ever bring up Madonna in your presence ever once more, lest they have their head bitten off.
Back in the day, several individuals compared “Born This Way” (by Gaga, in case you’ve been off the grid for a decade) to Madonna’s “Express Yourself,” and it was Madonna who was pissed. “The only time I ever criticized Lady Gaga was when I felt like she blatantly ripped off 1 of my songs,” Madonna said in Rolling Stone at the time.“It’s got absolutely nothing to do with ‘she’s taking my crown’ or ‘she’s in some space of mine.’ She has her factor. I do think she’s a extremely talented singer and songwriter. It was just that one particular problem,” Madonna added.
I guess I can see it. They’re both provocative female artists who make pop music. In Madonna’s defense, just simply because she’s not writing ballads or wearing meat dresses does not imply she’s not an artist. For example, Lenny Kravitz co-wrote “Justify My Love” with a single of Prince’s songwriters, but it’s Madonna carrying out her thing and producing history in the video. A lot of Madonna songs wouldn’t be all that fantastic without having the fanfare, clothes, and symbols she brings to the table. Anyway, there’s an argument that her performances are art.
OK, you caught me: I’m a lot more of a Madonna girl than a Tiny Monster. They’re each great, although, and it would be a complete lot cooler if they just wouldn’t talk shit about each other. Two strong, talented women have greater items to do (or so you would feel).
