  • Madonna Sings Mash Up Of "Express Yourself" And Lady Gaga's "Born This Way"

    The controversy surrounding Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" single sounding similar to Madonna's 1989 hit "Express Yourself" was reinvigorated over the weekend when Madonna performed a mash up of the two tracks.

    During a performance in Israel over the weekend, Madonna performed her song "Express Yourself". However she replaced the lyrics of the chorus with the chorus from "Born This Way". At the end of the medley, she incorporated her song "She's Not Me" as well.

    The mash up has caused a stir among netizens. When "Born This Way" was released, many people noted the similarity between the two songs, causing much controversy as to the originality of Lady Gaga.

    Lady Gaga has gone on record to say that she did not steal the melody of "Express Yourself, telling NME, "I will look you in your eyes and tell you that I am not dumb enough or moronic enough to think that you are dumb enough or moronic enough not to see that I would have stolen a melody...If you put the songs next to each other, side by side, the only similarities are the chord progression."

    Madonna on the other hand feels like she's inspired Gaga, telling 20/20, "She's a very talented artist. I certainly think she references me a lot in her work. And sometimes I think it's amusing and flattering and well done. [Her songs seem to be a] statement about taking something that was in the zeitgeist, you know, 20 years ago and turning it inside out and reinterpreting it."

    Check out a video of the performance below:
