Props Or Diss? Madonna Covers Lady Gaga’s Born This Way [Audio]

Rucuss staffMay 29, 2012

Madonna was caught rehearsing a remix of her 1989 hit Express Yourself with Lady Gaga’s 2011 hit song Born This Way.

Many believe Gaga borrowed from Madge’s hit track and the pop icon seems to agree. An onlooker recorded Madonna this past weekend in Israel rehearsing for her upcoming world tour when in mid-song of Express Yourself, she suddenly burst into Lady Gaga’s Born This Way lyrics. She bounced back and forth between the two songs.

Madonna has admitted in the past that she thinks Gaga copies her style. And Lady Gaga hasn’t denied it. She has admitted Madonna was a major inspiration to her music.

“I certainly think she references me  a lot in her work,” the 53-year-old pop diva told 20/20 in January. “And sometimes I think it’s amusing and  flattering and well done. There’s a lot of ways to look at it. I can’t really be  annoyed by it … because, obviously, I’ve influenced her.”
