Madonna Speaks Out About Lady Gaga Feud: “I Don’t Care Anymore”
Madonna is over and done with the Lady Gaga feud, and she wants the world to be too.
You’ll no doubt remember in the famous “reductive” tea-sip shade the Queen Of Pop threw Mother Monster’s way nearly three years ago regarding Gaga’s “Born This Way” and the alleged similarities to Madge’s own hit, “Express Yourself.” But that’s a thing of the past, according to the Rebel Heart herself.
“The only time I ever criticized Lady Gaga was when I felt like she blatantly ripped off one of my songs,” she explains in her upcoming Rolling Stone cover story. “It was just one issue.” Instead, she hopes that the media will focus on another issue — and she’s got an idea, too: “I don’t care anymore. Here’s the thing: One day, everyone’s going to just shut up about it. You’ll see! I have a plan.”
Are you satisfied with her response to the Gaga question? Check out her full quote from the upcoming story below.
Some people are very invested in the title of ‘Who’s the Queen of Pop’ Is that a crown you’re interested in?
Well, I do think of myself as a queen, but I don’t think I’m the only queen. There’s room for other queens. We reign over different kingdoms.
Lady Gaga told Howard Stern that there’s a perception out there that she was going for your crown. “I don’t want her ****ing throne,” she said.
“I don’t think she wants my crown either. We live in a world where people like to pit women against each other. And this is why I love the idea of embracing other females who are doing what I’m doing. It’s important for us to support each other. The only time I ever criticized Lady Gaga was when I felt like she blatantly ripped off one of my songs. It’s got nothing to do with “she’s taking my crown” or “she’s in some space of mine.” She has her thing. I do think she is a very talented singer songwriter. It was just that one issue.And everybody’s obviously run with it and turned it into a huge feud, which I think is really boring, quite frankly. And you know what? I don’t care anymore. Here’s the thing: One day, everyone’s going to just shut up about it. You’ll see! I have a plan.”
