Madonna rehearses mashup with Gaga song
Madonna may be planning to take a swipe at Lady Gaga during her MDNA tour. Leaked rehearsal footage, taken in Tel Aviv, shows The Material Girl performing a mashup of "Express Yourself" and Lady Gaga's "Born This Way," which many have long criticized as being incredibly similar to Madonna's 1989 hit. While Gaga has denied plagiarizing Madonna's song, Madonna herself told The Daily Beast that when she first heard "Born This Way," she thought, "What a wonderful way to redo my song." It is unclear whether Madonna intends to perform the mashup during live shows.
