Looks the Queen of Pop herself also thought that Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” sounded awfully similar to her own “Express Yourself” song. Madonna addressed the similities in an interview with Newsweek, saying “I thought, ‘What a wonderful way to redo my song. I mean, I recognized the chord changes. I thought it was … interesting.” This is an excerpt from an upcoming profile in the magazine that is set to appear on January 30.

I love how she’s just getting back on the scene (with her upcoming album “M.D.N.A.” coming soon) and she’s dominating the news and telling it like it is. This poke at Gaga’s song wasn’t even from her interview with Cynthia McFadden of ABC. So much more juiciness to come!

Looks like Madonna has come back to claim her thrown – the one she left onstage in the Hard Candy tour. Check out an awesome video mashup of the two songs in question below.
