Madonna on Lady Gaga's 'Born This Way': It Was a Redo of My Song

Finally, she's said it! Madonna has beef with Lady Gaga and even though we've all been saying it for years (that Lady Gaga rips off Madonna's music, wardrobe and bizarre dialect) now Madonna has confirmed it. Sort of, kind of. Well, basically. Keep reading!

Madonna is featured in the upcoming issue of Newsweek and reporter Jacob Brenstein finally got the truth out of Madonna on what she really thinks of Lady Gaga.

Talking about Gaga's hit song "Born This Way," Madonna tells the mag, "I thought, this is a wonderful way to redo my song ('Express Yourself'). I mean, I recognized the chord changes. I thought it was...interesting."

Wow, what? Do we have a rap beef on our hands here?! Minus the rap, so just like a pop-star beef, or a two-people-who-make-essentially-the-same-music beef?

Madonna basically says that Gaga ripped off her song "Express Yourself." Also, let's talk about how Gaga is "heavily inspired" by Madonna's cone bras, denim jackets, bedazzled outfits, relationship with Catholicism, way of singing, perverse sex appeal and...ALL OF IT.

Madonna also appeared on the Graham Norton show this week and gave her thoughts on Lady Gaga, but the heavily media trained singer was more tight lipped in that interview.

"When I first saw her I was really impressed by her and thought she was cool. She did remind me of me back in the day," Madonna says of Lady Gaga.

That's code for, B-TCH STOLE MY LOOK!
