The world of pop is on the lookout for its two top icons, Madonna and Lady Gaga, who have started a new divas fight. On this occasion, Madonna was the one who launched the coup last Monday by pointing out in his Instagram account that the Poker player face used a very characteristic phrase of his to promote himself. "My girl always makes and says things first," she read the message replicated by the Queen of Pop in her stories —the format that disappears within 24 hours of her publication—along with a video of an interview that the interpreter of Material girl < /C3 > made in the 80.
However, the phrase that has generated discord among the artists is not altogether the same. Lady Gaga has repeatedly said during the promotional tour of her film was born a star that "it may be that in a room of 100 people, 99 do not believe in you, but only need one to change your life." Madonna, however, said in an interview 30 years ago that "if there are 100 people in a room and 99 of them like [what I do], I only remember the person who did not like it."
The difference is centered in the meaning of the phrase. While the appointment of the New Yorker of 32 years points to the importance of continuing to dream because "it only takes one [person] to change your life", the American of 60 years reflects more his character perfectionist with the idea that no matter how many people Admire, you will always continue to work for that "only person" who does not.
This is not the first touch between the singers. In 2011 the followers of the interpreter of Papa Don´t Preach pointed out that the song of Lady Gaga Born This way was very similar to the subject Express yourself released by Madonna in 1989. After the controversy, the Queen of Pop threw a dart during an interview on the ABC chain in which she implied that she was superior to the New Yorker. "She isreductive," she said then, which can be translated to "she is inferior."
Gaga, for her part, referred to the altercation in her Netflix documentary : Five Foot Two. "The question with Madonna and me is that I have always admired her, and I will continue to admire no matter what she thinks of me," began the singer. "But I'm Italian and new York, so if I have a problem, I'll tell you in the face. No matter how much respect I have for her as an artist, I will never understand the one who hasn't dared to look me in the eye and tell me it was reductive or whatever. Saying I'm a piece of shit through the media is like passing me a note at school through a friend. " Added.
A year earlier, in 2016, it was Lady Gaga who spoke about the Queen of Pop on radio Beats 1 with DJ Zane Lowe, when he rejected the idea of being compared to Madonna for having similar stories. "She and I are very different. We would not be compared at all, "he declared then. "I don't want to disrespect you because you're a good person and you're the biggest pop star in history, but I play a lot of instruments and I write my own music. I spend hours and hours a day in the studio. I'm a producer and composer. What I do is different. I'm not just rehearsing to do a show. "
