NEW YORK - Lady Gaga is being sued by Madonna for plagiarism. Gaga’s explanation: “I’m retarded.”
Lady Gaga is being accused of plagiarism for her song “Born This Way” and the comparisons to Madonna’s hit “Express Yourself.”
Here’s Madonna expressing herself:
Madonna, who says she likes Lady Gaga, was quoted as saying, “that stupid bitch stole my song.”
Surprisingly, Lady Gaga admitted that she not only stole parts of “Express Yourself” for her song, but she is trying to steal everything about Madonna. “I want to be Madonna, just younger.”
Lady Gaga told WWN, “I’m a songwriter. I’ve written loads of music. Why would I try to put out a song and think I’m getting one over on everybody? Because… I’m retarded! I’m stupid and I do stupid things, get over it!”
Gaga went on to say, “If you put the songs next to each other, side by side, you can hear the similarities are not just the chord progression,” she continues. “I tried to steal her melody and her vocal style. I’m a plagiarist, it means I’m f****** retarded.”
If you’re a moron, raise your hand:
Lady Gaga confirmed that does not have any hate for people with mental or physical disabilities. The r-word is just something people say without thinking. “And I’m retarded, so I don’t usually think,” Gaga said.
She’s also getting criticism, this time from religious groups, over her new song, “Judas,” told from the point of view from Mary Magdelene.
“I feel like honestly that God sent me those lyrics and that melody,” Gaga shot back, getting emotional. “When you feel a message to give to the world and people are shooting arrows through it … there’s no way for something that pure to be wrong.”
The conservative Catholic League disagreed, though they’ve also lashed out at her music video, which hasn’t even come out yet.
“Leave me alone… I’m retarded!” Gaga said.
