Last October, Madonna and Lady Gaga made fun of rivalry rumblings with a hair-yanking, insult-flinging catfight on “Saturday Night Live.” But the rumor mill isn’t ready to let go of an “All About Eve” scenario featuring catchy pop tunes and no pants.
The Chicago Sun-Times claims that Madonna has been getting her leotard in a bunch whenever she catches footage of Lady G performing because she views it as less of an homage and more of a copy.
Oh, and the Big M supposedly hasn’t been shy about
saying how she considers the ubiquitous popster “really annoying.”
“It just bugs Madonna that Lady Gaga uses fashion and her performance style in a way that has so many people calling her ‘the new Madonna,'” a source maintains to the paper. “Madonna thinks she is unique and there cannot be a younger version of something that is unique.”
That sounds slightly suspect considering that Madonna made a splash early on by channeling a diamond-sporting Marilyn Monroe.
When contacted for comment, Madonna’s rep denied there was any truth to the story.
“Madonna really likes Lady Gaga,” spokeswoman Liz Rosenberg assures us. “She never said she was annoying.”
Gaga, for her part, has enthusiastically expressed her love for and inspiration from the pop icon.
In her sacril-icious, rosary bead-gulping new “Alejandro” video, Lady G references everything from
Madonna’s cross-burning “Like a Prayer” video to the black-and-white artiness of “Vogue” to “Evita,” with various callouts in between (MTV breaks them down here).
“I think Madonna is great,” she gushed to Larry King last week. “She’s been a wonderful friend and very kind and supportive and amazing. And she’s such an incredible woman. I get compared to so many people. And we’re compared to each other, whether we’re blond, brunette, black, white, straight, gay.”
Perhaps Gaga should have stopped there. Instead, she added that the comparison is “kind of funny”
because her mother (yep, she played the mom card) “actually looks sort of like Madonna. And the older I’ve gotten, I look more and more like my mother. So sometimes I just want to say, it’s not my fault that I look like her.”
Why won’t people just let it go and quite trying to tear friends apart they might look alike and have related like’s so what! you and your friends do to and don’t lie to me that’s why aguleria and gaga are in the drama with the paparazzi. So what is your take on this?
