Is New Lady Gaga Song a Madonna Rip-Off? LISTEN & Compare!

By Sunny Chanel |

The world is abuzz with the sound of Gaga, Lady Gaga that is. The pop sensation released a new dance number on Friday called “I Was Born This Way”. But there is something about this song, something in the way it sounds, like we’ve heard it before. You know why? Because it totally sounds like not one but TWO old Madonna songs!

The basic tone of “I Was Born This Way” sounds suspiciously like “Express Yourself” with a vocal break that is way reminiscent of Madonna’s “Vogue.”  Lady Gaga sound, style and envelope pushing ways is totally Madonna in the first place, so this really shouldn’t come as any surprise. But the question is, was it intentional? Is Madonna so in Lady Gaga DNA that she accidentially rewrote her work? Or is she paying homage to the Queen of Pop?

Listen to Lady Gaga’s “I Was Born This Way” and compare it to “Express Yourself” and “Vogue” below.

What do you think? Rip off or original?

    Their are very few similarites, ive listened over and over. and the only thing i can hear is that the chorus tunes are similar. That and all the awfull sound effects at the begining of the track sound very madaonnaish.

    I a huge gaga fan as well as madonna also. but this is just bullshit, its just more fucking people trying to hate on her because she is different and wont conform with all the other shit in the charts. Your all trying to destory her cus she is different and proud!

    I dont think Gaga Musically,,knows who she is,,,,,her management must watch 100′s of video clips from the 1970′s like Bonney M,Alice Cooper,, too 80′s Grace Jones,,, and ,Madonna,,and tell her to just copy them,,she obviously makes big money out of it,,, but in the end its all rather sad,,,,,,,,,,,,,
