Madonna Talks Lady GagaFriday, January 13, 2012 11:31 AM
Madge shared, "I certainly think she references me a lot in her work. And sometimes I think it's amusing and flattering and well-done.”
Specifically regarding the single, though, Madonna seemed less than impressed, “When I heard ['Born This Way'] on the radio ... I said, 'that sounds very familiar' ... It felt reductive."
“[Gaga is] a very talented artist... she’s making a statement about taking something that was in the Zeitgeist, you know, 20 years ago and turning it inside out and reinterpreting it."
