Asked by Cynthia McFadden if she considers Gaga a copycat, Madonna said, “I certainly think she references me a lot in her work. Sometimes I think it’s amusing and flattering and well-done,” before adding, “Obviously, I’ve influenced her.”
Madonna also revealed that, upon hearing “Born This Way” for the first time, she thought to herself, “That sounds very familiar.” McFadden then asked whether she was annoyed by the similarities between the two songs.
“It feels reductive,” she replied. “Look it up.”
