Lady Gaga responds to Madonna covering her song on tour!

As you know, Madonna is currently touring the world on her new MDNA Tour, and during her set she sings a mashup of her classic song “Express Yourself” and Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way.” Many critics feel that “Born This Way” is a copycat of “Express Yourself” and apparently Madonna thinks so too, because she blatantly sings the two songs together and finishes by repeating “she’s not me” during her show.

We previously heard from one of Gaga’s producers, Fernando Garibay, that he is happy that Madonna covers her song because every time she does, he gets paid royalties. But now, Mother Monster has responded (without mentioning her name) to Madonna’s insult.

Speaking to the crowd atop a motorcycle while playing the piano during her song “Hair” at her show in New Zealand she explained, “It sometimes makes people feel better about themselves, you know, to put other people down or make fun of them or maybe make mockery of their work.” She added, “I don’t even want to fight back because it’s more important to me to keep writing music,” alluding to Madonna’s diss.

But! She wasn’t done there, continuing a bit later, “Things are really different now than they were 25 years ago, and that’s what makes ‘Born This Way’ so relevant for me.” She continued on, “We’re socially in a completely different place and it’s OK, we don’t have to all slice and hate each other anymore.” OUCH. Madonna, looks like Gaga’s taking the high rode on this one, and she may have won this round. We wonder if Madonna will combat these remarks in anyway?

Tell us who you think won this round Madonna with the mashup or Lady Gaga taking the high rode?
