You may remember that when Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” was released a little over a year ago, Madonna and Gaga fans, as well as the artists themselves, got into a battle of not so tough words regarding the originality of Gaga’s title track. Madonna even referred to it as “reductive” of her own work, basically acknowledging in the nicest way possible that she felt ripped off.
Here’s your definition of “coming full circle” for today: Madonna was recently videoed while rehearsing for her new tour in Tel Aviv, Israel and what was caught on film may surprise you. It seems as though Madge will be performing a mash-up of Gaga’s “Born This Way” and her own “Express Yourself” complete with some Gaga-esque motorcycle sound effects.
The kicker here, the clip ends with some of Madonna’s 2008 track “She’s Not Me.”
