lady-gaga

Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery but in reality, it’s just plain annoying. Pop diva Lady Gaga has been called out by many for being a habitual copycat. But in her defense, nothing is original so maybe she just borrowed other people’s ideas and tried to make them better? Madonna, Annie Lennox and Cam’ron may think otherwise.

And between her controversial “Like a Virgin” performance in 1984 and her threesome kiss with Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera in 2003, Madonna is a VMA legend.
