Madonna vs. Lady Gaga -- It's On!

2/12/2011 9:06 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

If you noticed a similarity between Lady Gaga's brand new song, "Born This Way," and Madonna's classic track, "Express Yourself," you're not the only one -- seems the Material Girl has noticed it too!



Madge's official YouTube page was updated today with a 1989 live performance video of "Express Yourself" she did at the MTV Video Music Awards. 

The two pop stars have never feuded -- Gaga has called Madonna a huge influence and the two even did an "SNL" sketch together back in 2009. 

Listen to Madonna's song above and Gaga's song here, then we ask ...

The songs are similar but so are the two egomaniacal freaks that performed them. Who cares.

Mel Gibson would never rip off one of Madonna's songs. That's a hint for some new info Harvey.

Isn't Madonna like 63 years old now? Why doesn't she gracefully fade away?

With all that plastic she is not biodegradable. It could take another hundred years.

Didn't anyone notice how similar "Alejandro" was to "La Isla Bonita"? I'm not a fan of either one of them and I heard it...

When you are not honest about your song and put it out as your original work, that is not homage, that is plagiarism. I think Madonna has some fat royalty checks coming her way from this song.

And I'm not a hater. Bad Romance, Poker Face, Telephone...all unique hits. Not sure what she was thinking with this one. Maybe the pressure to keep up with her own hype is getting to her.

But for those that say they are totally different...yeah, remember when Vanilla Ice said that about his Queen rip off? Didn't fly then, either. Or maybe you're just too young to remember that...or know what you are talking about.

Much ado about nothing. 2 different songs. Gaga does sound a bit like Madonna, but that's not a bad thing.

Lady Gaga rips off everything Madonna did. She wants that fame and darnit, she's good at it.

Just what the pop world needs, another cheesy anthem patronizing to the gay market. The only good thing going on about the song is the electronic beat at the beginning of the track.

I just don't hear it. They're both upbeat and deal with similar themes, that's about it. Is anyone who's pro gay a direct ripoff of Madonna?

BITCH LADY CACA ALSO RIPPED OFF BRUCE SPRINGSTEIN'S TITLE OF HIS ALBUM "BORN TO RUN". SHE USES THE SAME LETTER FONT STYLE. WOW, TOTALLY UNORIGINAL. COMPARE THE LETTERING OF "BORN TO RUN" VS. "BORN THIS WAY". WTF??
