Some pop fans are in the Lady Gaga Totally Ripped Off Madonna‘s “Express Yourself” With “Born This Way” camp, while others are in the What? No, That’s Absolute Crazy Talk camp. But regardless of what we all think, Madge took a further step toward proving the reductive nature of it all by mashing up the two songs (as we saw from her MDNA Tour rehearsals) live in Tel Aviv last night. The results are hilarious — not the least of which because Madonna actually mimics some of Gaga’s “Born This Way” choreography — and the point, as they say, has been taken.
Watch the Material Girl’s mash-up below. And if you’re in the mood for even more vintage Madge, we also threw in her performances of a slowed-down “Like A Virgin”, plus her chart-topping 1990 singles “Justify My Love” and “Vogue”.
