Madonna Kind-Of-Maybe Responded To Lady Gaga’s Shade
Last week, during a chat with Zane Lowe, Joanne artiste Lady Gaga didn’t take too kindly to the suggestion that her upbringing resembles that of Madonna‘s. “Madonna and I are very different, I wouldn’t make that comparison at all,” Gaga told the Beats host. “I don’t mean to disrespect Madonna. She’s a nice lady and she’s had a fantastic huge career. She’s the biggest pop star of all time, but I play a lot of instruments.”
Gaga could have taken a page from many who’ve gone before her, and opted for the high road, but she instead added, “I write all my own music. I spend hours and hours a day in the studio. I’m a producer, I’m a writer. What I do is different. I’m not just rehearsing over and over again to put on a show.”
Madonna, in turn, seemed to respond on Instagram, only to delete the post. A screengrab of her supposed clap-back, however, exists.
“Ink is the blood of literature. Remember when people used to write?” the pop queen asked, before adding that “this post is not commentary on my ability to write. I have no need to defend myself. I love the art of writing.” (And Madonna’s got a good point, as last week she, along with other enduring icons like Jay Z, George Michael and Babyface, was nominated for the Songwriters Hall Of Fame.)
Perhaps not wanting to cause the umpteenth pop feud between herself and Gaga, Madge pulled the note off Instagram, and simply tweeted out the following shortened, innocuous version:

Hopefully that’s the end of that. And, really, this was a minor dust-up compared to some of the other beefs brewing out there at the moment.
