The critics may have spoken and criticized Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" for sounding quite similar to Madonna's "Express Yourself," but Madge herself sent Gaga an email expressing her support. See, divas really do love each other.
On her appearance on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno on Monday night, Gaga said, "The good news is I got an email from her people sending me their love and support on behalf of the single. And if the queen says it shall be, then it shall be."
Regarding the alleged "copycat" nature of "Born This Way," Gaga also said, "You know, there is really no one that is a more adoring and loving Madonna fan than me...I am the hugest fan personally and professionally." Gaga also said that "Born This Way" was meant to have an early '90s vibe and to have to a party anthem nature, and since "Express Yourself" came out in 1989 and had a fun vibe to it, along with an empowering message, mission accomplished.
What do you think of the email communication between Lady Gaga and Madonna's team?
