Lady Gaga appeared on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live decked out in her giant wig and mermaid bikini to goof around with host Andy Cohen and answer some fan questions. After revealing some humanizing details (like which of her outfits was the most painful, and what she wears to bed), Mother Monster offered up a thoughtful response when asked her opinion of pseudo-rival Christina Aguilera.

“I’m a very big fan of Christina Aguilera. From the very beginning of when my career started there was all this controversy about the two of us. And I always felt that was very unfair to her,” Gaga started off. “Christina is an incredible vocalist and an incredible artist, and from me to her I’m so sorry for anything that anyone ever said to her because of my existence, and I hope that she never felt any way about it. Because when I was 15, I was singing ‘I Turn To You’ at the top of my lungs trying to hit all her notes. So she was an inspiration to me to have a wider vocal range and I just think it’s all total nonsense, the way that they do that.”

“They” would refer to just about everyone other than Xtina and Gaga, because “they” drove the feud narrative. The apparent rivalry emerged early in Gaga’s career, and fans of each would claim that the other was biting their queen’s style. While Aguilera did help fan the flames by spouting the now-classic “I’m not quite sure who this person is” diss when asked about Gaga way back in 2009, it was a fight that’s mainly been left to stanbases, blogs and (sometimes) collaborators.

Perhaps now we can all move on, join hands and listen to Bionic.

  1. Conveniently Lady Gaga fails to mention how she was part of the sabotage against Christina by agreeing with Perez in US Weekly and Digital Spy that she was copying her style.

    She only apologizing to Christina because Christina’s career has bombed and she doesn’t see her as a threat anymore. Put it this way: if Christina had a number 1 song in charts now Gaga would have never said that!

    Is she ever going to apologize to Madonna for ripping off her entire career? From dance moves to songs to images Gaga plagiarized Madonna like no other artist in the history of pop music.

    • Joel

      Gaga’s dance moves were created by Laurieann Gibson.Not her…and if you knew anything about music then you would know that all pop songs are created with the same 4 chords.the only difference is the order of the chords.

      • benny

        All pop songs are created on 4 chords??!! Ermmm.. nice try but you did show your ignorance there… then again you are a Little Monster so i’m not expecting anything less.

    • Gaga will apologize as soon as Madonna apologizes for ripping off so many artists that i’ve lost count. There is nothing unique about Madonna. SHE made her career by ripping off other artists.

      • Im guessing you’re 12 by your pic and lack of information on the originality of Lady Gaga, but please do tell me all of the artist Madonna ripped off in the span of her 29 year music career, do yourself a favor and research before you start grasping for empty insults and facts.

    Nobody destroyed Xtina’s career besides Xtina, Lotus was actually a good album but Bionic was awful… She was trying way too hard.

  4. Good god people, just get over it. It’s done.

  5. The ONLY real reason that Bionic & Lotus were a total flop was because of her promoting strategy. For god’s sake Bionic only had 2 singles released, while Lotus only 1.

  6. Marc

    Lady Gaga is to music what Forever21 is to the fashion world. She’s one fraudulent b*tch, and she’s unapologetic about it. Madonna isn’t the only person she rips off, it’s Bowie and Grace Jones too. Madonna is still a big name, so we can call her out on that one. To those 11 year old chubby monsters who think of GaGa as their lifeline, please remember that Madonna borrowed from MANY artists, and made it her own. Gaga keeps copying from 1 or 2 sources, everything and that’s a blatant rip off.

    • willie rush

      Inspiration, to be exact. She is not copying blatantly.

      Buy Born This Way. It is obviously musically different – and slightly more sophisticated – than Madonna. And to be honest, Gaga’s vocals are way better than Madonna. Even Madonna admitted that Gaga was the next popstar of her generation. Elton John said she was the picasso of the music industry.

      Enjoy her lyrical genius and unprecedented theatrics of lady gaga, the revolutionary artist who brings character into pop music and expands the dimensions of music videos into a higher level.

    Oh look Lady Gagas italian she’s so reductive !!!!!! LMFAO like really come on people the only thing you can throw in Gagas face is the similarity between Born This Way and Express Yourself everything else is bull !!!! Madonna is older than Christina so clearly she was in the business first but no one mentions the similarities between the 2…. Or when Nicki Minaj wears an over the top outfit she’s “creative” but not once is Madonna mentioned i think all of you are threatened and you can’t deny it as soon as she debuted everyone liked her but she started snatching wigs then the criticism came….. And besides she’s only the 3rd most awarded artist of all time !!!!

    LADY GAGA IS ONE VERY BAD PERSON..CRISTINA IS BETTER ARTIST THAN THIS CLOWN AND MADONNA`S COPY…GAGA IS A LIER
