Madonna over the weekend dedicated a
song to Lady Gaga, saying she was flattered by the “imitation.”
“I love her. I love her. I do love
her. Imitation is the highest form of flattery,” she said in
dedicating her track Masterpiece from her 12th
studio album MDNA to Lady Gaga.
Madonna has previously said she thought
Lady Gaga's track Born This Way sounded “familiar” to her
1989 dance hit Express Yourself.
She told ABC News' Cynthia McFadden
that it feels “reductive.”
“Is that good?” McFadden asked.
“Look it up,” Madonna calmly
For the record, McFadden noted,
“reductive” means “simplified” or “crude.”
The Queen of Pop suggested in her
latest remarks – made during a performance in Atlantic City –
that her feud with Lady Gaga was cooling.
“And one day, very soon, we're going
to be on the stage together,” she
told the audience. “Just you wait.” (The video is embedded
