Madonna to Lady Gaga

I Can Steal Your Songs Too

5/29/2012 4:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The shoe was on the other foot in Israel Friday -- Madonna performed a cover of Lady Gaga's hit song "Born This Way" ... the same song Madonna called a rip-off of her earlier work ... but it's unlikely this was an homage to L.G.

Madonna was rehearsing for a concert in Tel Aviv -- singing her own song "Express Yourself" -- then seamlessly transitioned into Lady Gaga's "Born This Way."

Madonna famously criticized "Born This Way" when it was released last year, calling the song a "wonderful redo" of "Express Yourself." Madonna then called it "reductive."

Gaga called Madonna's comments "retarded."

So we gotta ask ...

When will this irrelevant, conceited hag realize that lnobody wants to be like her in any way? Like people want to copy a n overplayed tween anthem from 25 years ago. Bi*tch please.

Lady Gag Gag is nothing but a copycat who uses shock-value style to gain attention.
Her voice is halfway decent, but she has NO originality and no ability to come up with any truly original compositions.

I can't help but laugh every time I see her. Honestly, she's too old to even TRY and compete with Gaga...I feel like Gaga has been paying homage to Madonna since her career took off. People have tried to pull off what Mad did to the 80's, but nobodies truly been able to since Gaga hit the scene. Somebody tell Mad to put away the hot pants and go read the Kabbalah Bible...*so petty*

Pretty self righteous for a broad that sucked her way to the top. Madonna had her time and made billions of's over. Move on one cares.

Gaga didn't call Madonna's comments "retarded." She said in an earlier interview (before Madonna even made the "reductive" comment) that it was "retarded" and "moronic" to think that she would try to pull one over on everyone and release a song that was an exact copy of "Express Yourself." It's a poor choice of words, but still there's a big difference between her saying it would be "retarded" for her to copy Madonna and her calling Madonna's comments "retarded." Report the correct facts, TMZ!

On another note, this is petty drama, not that I expect anything else from Madonna!
