The last time I checked, Madonna was not exactly the queen of originality, so when Lady Gaga infamously heavily quasi-sampled her “Express Yourself”, she should have been pleased that someone was sampling her and keeping her ass current and on the PDA devices of nearly every tween in America. But no, Madonna was not having it! Instead of praising Lady Gaga’s assterpiece of a song, she took the capitalistic approach, re-releasing the song for download.
The poptrick trashdown continued in Tel Aviv over the weekend, when Madonna, who is rehearsing for concerts, began singing the lyrics to her Express Yourself over Lady Gaga’s Born This Way. How much do you want to bet she includes this verbal slap on the concert tour?
If this is not the pot calling the kettle black then I don’t know what is. If Madonna had to pay off everyone she has ripped off of, she would not have enough money to pay for her boytoys. Pat Benatar, Grace Jones, Debbie Harry, Roisin Murphy, et cetera…they are still waiting for checks!
