There’s a lot of talk about how Lady Gaga is so blatantly copying Madonna’s moves and music but decided to compliment Whitney Houston when she exhibited some false modesty during her Grammy acceptance speech. During an appearance on the Tonight Show last night, Gaga said that Madonna’s people sent their support for her new song, the one that sounds just like “Express Yourself,” and that everything is good.
There is really no one that is a more adoring and loving Madonna fan than me. I am the hugest fan, personally and professionally. And… Well, the good news is, I got an e-mail from her people and her sending me their love and complete support on behalf of the single. And if the queen says it shall be, then it shall be. And I think it’s so important as well, I think today in music there’s the freedom in the song, the sort of R&B early 90s vibe that it has. It’s so full of love and spirit. I think it’s the spirit that people are reacting to the most. I just want everyone to rejoice and celebrate and be unafraid to be happy with music. It doesn’t always have to be so dark. It doesn’t always have to be so sexy. Sometimes it’s just wonderful to celebrate life and kind of go to church with it.
I watched most of Gaga’s interview and she’s so full of sh*t that it really annoys me. She name drops designers constantly and talks as if she’s here to enlighten the masses about the meaning of life through music and performance art. On the meaning of “Born This Way,” she said “It’s about being able to know that when you were born, you weren’t just born in that moment. You have your entire life to realize the person that you’re potentially going to become, and whoever you chose to be was part of your destiny. So I’m encouraging people to know that if in this moment you don’t feel entirely happy with who you are, you feel bullied or disenfranchised, it’s never too late to harness your confidence and your inner superstar.” See – she’s like a one-woman cult with her “little monsters” and her pep talks. All you have to do is listen to her derivative music and watch her copycat moves and you too will be saved.
