Madonna Is Aware That “Born This Way” Sounds Like “Express Yourself”

By: Becky Bain / January 12, 2012

The very moment we began to listen to Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” for the first time, we couldn’t help but notice it sounded incredibly similar to Madonna’s 1989 hit “Express Yourself”. As it turns out, Madonna noticed it, too. When reporter Jacob Bernstein asked the pop star about her thoughts on Gaga’s single for an upcoming Newsweek piece, she replied, “This is a wonderful way to redo my song [“Express Yourself”]. I mean, I recognized the chord changes. I thought it was… interesting.” Madge, tell us how you really feel. (No, seriously, please do! Don’t censor yourself by just calling it “interesting”.)
