Madonna added more fuel to the fire when she dedicated a song to Lady Gaga, saying, "I love her, I love her, I do love her, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery." She added, "One day, very soon, we're gonna be on stage together. Just you wait."
The Sun reports Madonna was on stage in Atlantic City on Saturday night when she delivered the backhand compliment, dedicating her song Masterpiece to Gaga.
Madonna claims Gaga is a copycat for her hit single Born This Way, pointing to similarities to her 1989 hit Express Yourself, saying, "What a wonderful way to redo my song. I mean, I recognised the chord changes. I thought it was ... interesting."
That comment drew Elton John into the fray, in an interview he hit back at the Material Girl, saying, "she looks like a f***ing fairground stripper. She's been so horrible to Gaga."
Madonna fired back with, "I'd like to dedicate this next song to a Mr. Elton John. I know he's a big fan of it. I know he's a big fan of mine. And you know what? I forgive him. Gotta start somewhere." She then launched into Masterpiece, the same song that beat out Elton John's Hello Hello for the Golden Globe Award for Best Original song.
Lady Gaga said she was hurt by Madonna's words, adding “I don’t even want to fight back, because it’s more important to me to keep writing music.” But during a recent show in Helsinki, Gaga flashed her butt to the crowd and yelled, “I don’t give a f**k what people say. We don’t give a f**k. We know the truth.”
And the pop-diva catfight continues.
