We have to admit we were surprised by Lady Gaga on the Tonight show last night. While chatting with Jay Leno, she seemed so lovely. We’re not saying Lady Gaga isn’t just lovely, okay, before you start throwing things at us. We’re just admitting that we haven’t heard that many of Lady Gaga’s interviews and truly assumed she spoke in monosyllables and said things like, “walk, walk, fashion, baby” in real life.
Leno inevitably brought up the Gaga-Madonna controversy surrounding Born this Way. Specifically that Gaga ripped off Madonna on the single because it sounds so much like Madge’s Express Yourself and, as some are even suggesting, Vogue. Considering the world’s riled up, Madonna isn’t. In fact, as Gaga revealed on the show, the Queen of Pop has bestowed her blessings on Gaga. “You know, there is really no one that is a more adoring and loving Madonna fan than me. I am the hugest fan personally and professionally, ” she said. Gaga also added, “Well, the good news is that I got an email from her people and her, sending me their love and complete support on behalf of the single. And if the Queen says ‘it shall be” then it shall be.” Amen!
Watch the video above to watch the rest of the interview which includes Gaga talking about Born this Way . It’s kinda hard not to be a fan when you see where she’s coming from, which is way upbeat and happy. It’s at odds with her funereal garb, but…walk, walk, fashion, baby.
