Madonna Fires a Shot at Lady Gaga... Again

Tuned In: Madonna Fires a Shot at Lady Gaga... Again
The fires of the Lady Gaga/Madonna flame war have been stoked once again thanks to footage from Madge's recent concert rehearsal in Tel Aviv. As she is wont to do (see: Elton John, hydrangeas, etc.), Madonna previously made a fuss over Lady Gaga's "Born This Way," claiming the song was a rip-off of her own 1989 track, "Express Yourself."

In the condescending, passive-aggressive fashion that has unfortunately become Madonna's trademark, she told Newsweekback in January, "["Born This Way"] is a wonderful way to redo my song "Express Yourself." I mean, I recognized the chord changes. I thought it was… interesting." Now, as if to prove her point, Madonna is incorporating Gaga's song into her tour. 
The rehearsal footage (right) captured before her show in Israel reveals a mash-up of "Express Yourself" and "Born This Way." To drive things home, Madonna finishes with lyrics from her 2008 Hard Candy hit "She's Not Me." Zing! To Madonna's credit, hearing the mash-up of the two songs makes it hard to deny their striking similarities.
