From the day Lady Gaga hit the scene, some Madonna fans immediately began drawing comparisons between the two mega stars
Fans were able to draw comparisons between the two when they would spot things like similar chord changes and more on songs. Apparently, the feud was re-ignited with Madonna's latest Instagram Stories post. More on that below.
First, a little backstory between Lady Gaga and Madonna's beef.
It started back in 2013 when the two stars exchanged words during different interviews after Madonna claimed that Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" was a blatant rip-off of her "Express Yourself".
"It's silly. There's always this pissing match, 'Did she take her torch?' [and] 'Is she the new her?' 'Is she going to outlast her?'... There's this thing with some people that I'm a threat to the throne. And I don't want your f*cking throne. And no thanks. And I have my own, and I don't actually want a throne at all." Madonna says to Howard Stern.
She later tells Rolling Stone, "I don't think [Gaga] wants my crown. We live in a world where people like to pit women against each other. And this is why I love the idea of embracing other females who are doing what I'm doing.... The only time I ever criticized Lady Gaga was when I felt like she blatantly ripped off one of my songs. It's got nothing to do with 'she's taking my crown' or 'she's in some space of mine.' She has her thing. I do think she's a very talented singer and songwriter. It was just that one issue. And everybody's obviously running with it and turned it into a huge feud, which I think is really boring, quite frankly. And you know what? I don't care anymore. Here's the thing: One day everyone's going to shut up about it."
Well, Madonna has another bone to pick with Lady Gaga it seems.
Lady Gaga has said numerous times during different interviews that, "there can be 100 people in the room and 99 don't believe in you but all it takes is one who does."
Madonna re-ignited the feud recently by posting a throwback clip on her Instagram Stories of her saying that same quote during an interview. Madonna later followed up with a "Don't f-ck with me Monday" post with a pic of boxing gloves.
She didn't point any fingers, but any Lady Gaga fan knows that this could be an indirect jab at Gaga. Cue the awkward moment.
To be fair, Madonna was referencing that quote in more of a criticism context, while Gaga's version of it was more about encouragement. Either way, both artists have their own lanes in entertainment and us as fans can only hope for a collaboration project one day from the two queens. Hopefully, that collab doesn't end up anything like this:
