Madonna on Lady Gaga: ‘Imitation is the highest form of flattery’

Queen of Pop has teased the two 'rival' gay icons may work together in the near future

Madonna on Lady Gaga: ‘Imitation is the highest form of flattery’
17 September 2012

Madonna has spoken out of her love for fellow pop star Lady Gaga in the only way she knows how.

The Queen of Pop and gay icon dedicated her track Masterpiece to the younger bisexual star during a performance in Atlantic City, New Jersey, over the weekend, and appeared to accuse her of copying her.

She said: ‘I love her. I love her. I do love her. Imitation is the highest form of flattery.’

Perhaps most exciting for music fans, she added: ‘And one day, very soon, we’re going to be on stage together. Just you wait.’

The pop legend has previously accused her younger rival of copying her track Express Yourself on her single Born This Way.

She said: ‘I thought, “What a wonderful way to redo my song”. I mean, I recognized the chord changes. I thought it was interesting.’

During her current worldwide MDNA tour the star has also been joking about the similarities of the two, performing a medley of both songs.

Speaking at a concert in New Zealand, Gaga said: ‘It sometimes makes people feel better about themselves to put other people down or make fun of them or maybe make mockery of their work.

‘I don’t even want to fight back, because it’s more important to me to keep writing music.’

The last time Madonna and Lady Gaga shared the stage together was back in 2009, when they had a ‘cat fight’ in a comedy sketch for Saturday Night Live.
