We have a new development in the Madonna VS Lady Gaga saga! Has Madonna finally said something nice about Mother Monster?!

As you know, Madonna and Mother Monster haven’t exactly been each other’s biggest fans lately. Madonna did an interview with ABC News in January, calling Lady Gaga’s music ‘reductive’ and currently covers Gaga’s song ‘Born This Way’ on her MDNA Tour. The song is mashed with ‘Express Yourself’, a classic Madonna song that critics feel Lady Gaga has copied with ‘Born This Way.’

Lady Gaga recently responded to the blatant song diss at one of her New Zealand shows. During a rendition of “Hair,” Gaga took the high-rode saying, “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.

And now, it seems Madonna has responded to Gaga’s indirect comments towards the 53-year-old singer, and we’re happy to report it’s all positive. In a chat with Italian Magazine ‘Repubblica,’ Madonna was asked, “Is Lady Gaga a threat or only another temporary ‘spice girl’?” First of all, those iconic Spice Girls are still making headlines, so we’re not sure about the validity of the question, but according to That Grape Juice, Madge responded, “She is an artist with a great, high level of talent.”

There has so far been no evidence of this interview online, or when it was actually taped, but we’ll wait to see the full interview to gauge Madonna’s tone when answering the question. For now, we’re proud of Madonna for the kind words of Mother Monsters and we’re going to give her the benefit of the doubt.

Now, it’s your turn. What do you think of Madonna’s answer? Do you think Gaga will respond to this development at one of her upcoming shows? Leave us a comment!

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?
