In a recent interview with NME Lady Gaga revealed that she wasn’t too pleased with her new song being compared to Madonna’s sound. She said:
“That’s retarded. If you put the songs next to each other, side by side, the only similarities are the chord progression. It’s the same one that’s been in disco music for the last 50 years. Just because I’m the first f—ing artist in 25 years to think of putting it on Top 40 radio, it doesn’t mean I’m a plagiarist, it means I’m f—ing smart. Sorry.”
As soon as Gaga came under fire for the comments, she released an apology:
“I consider it part of my life’s work and music to push the boundaries of love and acceptance. To anyone that was hurt, please know that it was furiously unintentional. An honest mistake requires honesty to make.”
Do you think Gaga is sincere or is she worried about her image?
