We've learned a lot of things about Madonna this week. First, we discovered that it would be a very bad idea to give her Hydrangeas. We also found out that she is not one of Lady Gaga's little monsters and doesn't care or appreciate Gaga's obsession with her. While answering questions at the Venice Film Festival about her film W.E., a reporter asked the Material Girl what she thinks about Lady Gaga admiring her. The pop star doesn't seem flattered at all by Mama Monster's attention and stiffly replied, "As for Lady Gaga, I have no comment on her obsessions related to me, because I do not know if it is based on something profound or superficial." I suppose that's one way to Express Yourself.
Gaga's interest in Madonna has been brought up in the past, especially when Gaga released her newest album with the hit song, Born This Way, which some thought sounded incredibly similar to Madonna's hit Express Yourself. But Gaga is more than happy to share the fame and spotlight with her glorified idol and has always spoken openly about her admiration for the pop music vet, even telling Jay Leno, "There is really no one that is a more adoring and loving Madonna fan than me. I am the hugest fan personally and professionally." These two have so much in common -- outrageous outfits, a killer fan base, and phenomenal hit songs -- you'd think they'd be two peas in a pod. But apparently this prima donna wants to stand alone, so she's just going to keep pushing Gaga's love over the Borderline.
