Lady Gaga’s newest album ‘Joanne’ is inches away from being released, shots have been fired between two pop divas. It seems that during a promotion for her upcoming video, the Paparazzi singer took a shot at Madonna.
In the company of DJ Zana Lowe while having a talk about the album ‘Joanne’ on Thursday, Gaga apparently had rather awkward interview when the DJ began to compare Lady Gaga’s career to Madonna’s, and even went and compared the singer’s latest single “Perfect Illusion” to Madonna’s 1986 hit “Papa Don’t Preach”
“There is another artist who has lived a parallel existence. Based on this story, which I’m sure you can relate to. You know Madonna tells a very similar story… Papa Don’t Preach. You know what I mean.”
Lady Gaga’s reaction was that of an unimpressed person, not liking being compared to a fellow pop star, Gaga made it known that the similarities the DJ mentioned were not on point.
“I wouldn’t make that comparison at all. I don’t mean to disrespect Madonna… she’s a nice lady. And she’s had a fantastic, huge career. She’s the biggest pop star of all time… but I play lot of instruments. I write my own music. I spend hours and hours a day in the studio. I’m a producer. I’m a writer. What I do is different.”
Upon Gaga’s reaction, the radio host was not unprepared for this scenario, after a short silence between the two, she went on further elaborating the similarities between the two, earning her this response.
“There are major differences between me and her and I don’t mean that in a disrespectful way. I just will not be compared to anyone anymore, I am who the f**k I am and this is me. My life story is my life story just like yours is. The thing is we all express things in different ways but my rebellion at my father for him being angry with me that has ended. It’s like I can bite back.”
The two pop singers don’t have that great of a relationship, to begin with, a previous feud back in 2012 seemed to be the root of everything else, whereas Madonna called out Gaga for her song “Poker Face” that she thought was stolen from her 1986 single :Express Yourself” With that being said, Gaga would definitely want to stay away from anything that would link her work to that of the 58-yearold diva.
