Madonna reportedly performed an interesting mash-up -- a mix of her 1989 song "Express Yourself" and Lady Gaga's 2011 song "Born This Way."
Lady Gaga confessed that one of the artists that greatly influence her is Madonna. But earlier this year, Madonna seems to be implying that Lady Gaga was copying her and stealing from her. When asked about the song Born This Way, "Of course I heard it,"
said in the January interview with ABC News
. "How could I not? I think it was on the radio a few times. I thought, 'This is a wonderful way to redo my song.' I recognized the chord changes, I thought it was ... interesting."
"I certainly think [Gaga] references me a lot in her work,"
"And sometimes I think it's amusing and flattering and well-done. When I heard ['Born This Way'] on the radio à I said, 'that sounds very familiar."
The mash-up, according to Billboard
, was performed by Madonna during rehearsals for her concert in Tel Aviv on May 27.
