Madonna Compares Lady Gaga To Britney Spears. As A Compliment. Sort Of.

|

Only a fabulous ice queen like Madonna could say something nice about a fellow pop star and have it seem like an insult. Or did she insult her and have it feel like praise? We honestly don’t know! In her new interview with The Advocate, the “Give Me All Your Luvin” singer delivers her compliments for Lady Gaga the only way she knows how: with a powerful backhand. “I can see why she has a young gay following. I can see that they connect to her kind of not fitting into the conventional norm.” Madonna said of the “Born This Way” chanteuse. “I mean, she’s not Britney Spears. She’s not built like a brick s–thouse.” Ouch! Though…should Gaga want to be a “s–thouse”? It has the s word in it! Should Britney be offended now? Madonna, you are some kind of beef mastermind.

Compared to Madge’s previous comments about Lady Gaga, however, calling her a poorly constructed outhouse might be as close to an olive branch as we’re going to get. “I thought, What a wonderful way to redo my song. I mean, I recognized the chord changes. I thought it was … interesting,” Madonna told Newsweek last month with regards to Gaga’s “Born This Way,” having also snarked about Gaga’s “obsessions having to do with me” to French paper Le Soir in September. “She seems to have had a challenging upbringing, and so I can see where she would also have that kind of connection, a symbiotic relationship with gay men,” Madonna concludes to The Advocate. Thank…you? That is…sweet? We smell a…duets album?
