Lady Gaga, Madonna and Katy Perry: Three of the biggest pop queens around. But aren't they supposed to HATE each other?
And aren't ~rumours~ fantastic?
Well LOOK at this from Monday night's Met Gala! It's a pop diva sandwich full of love and friendship. Which means they've made up 💚
Let's get you up to speed.
Madonna and Lady Gaga are understandably pretty big rivals on the pop scene and there's been plenty of shade throughout the years.
In 2012 Madonna claimed Gaga's "Born This Way" was a rip off of her 1989 track "Express Yourself", telling The Daily Beast at the time:
I thought, What a wonderful way to redo my song. I mean, I recognized the chord changes. I thought it was…interesting.
Then everyone thought Madonna dissed Gaga in a leaked song last year called "Two Steps Behind Me", with the lyrics: "You're a copycat, Where is my royalty? You're a pretty girl, I'll give you that. But stealing my recipe, it's an ugly look." Which has of course since been denied.
You keeping up?
Well how about Lady Gaga and Katy Perry?
Again over the last few years there's been plenty of beef suggesting the pair are feuding. It started when Gaga's "Applause" went head-to-head against Perry's "Roar" in the charts.
And this tweet didn't help matters when Katy dyed her hair green and used a mechanical horse during her tour (after Gaga did at the American Music Awards).
As for Madonna and Katy Perry? OH, THEY'VE ALWAYS BEEN FINE.
Last month Madonna started to make amends by telling Rolling Stone:
I don't think [Gaga] wants my crown ... We live in a world where people like to pit women against each other. And this is why I love the idea of embracing other females who are doing what I'm doing...
