You Stole My Steez: 8 Musicians Who People Say Got Famous Copying Other Singers
Lady Gaga and Madonna
Well, duh. When Gaga first came to the scene in her funky costumes and new pop sound, there were a few Madonna comparisons, but Madge herself had no problem with the new star and seemingly embraced her (the two women even did an SNL skit together that joked on their supposed rivalry). But as with most musicians losing their thunder, as Gaga became more successful, and her songs started sounding a bit too similar to Madonna’s (“Born This Way” vs. “Express Yourself” and the “Vogue” video vs. Gaga’s “Alejandro“), the queen of pop started throwing her own dose of shade at the young singer in interviews, and even did a cover of “Born This Way” while on tour.
