We’ve been sitting here, humming tunelessly, psyching ourselves up for the release of Lady Gaga’s new “Judas” music video (due out tomorrow) when we came across this post on Collectors Weekly. It helpfully points out that Lady Gaga copies just about everyone, from Popes to Replicants, who are totally real people (but better constructed!). However, Lady Gaga gives a special nod to Madonna in “Born This Way” when she mimics the high pony-tail Madonna wore on her Blonde Ambition tour. We can’t believe we never thought to compare the two style icons before. Now, we make them battle to the death. Only one can emerge victorious.
This is an extra fun battle, because Lady Gaga has been quoted as saying “It’s funny when people say they see a lot of Madonna in me. I just feel so flattered because I love her and I am just her biggest fan. She is very strong. I love the way she does interviews -you know you won’t get anything past her.”
And in my head, Madonna replies “I’ll crush you in this style icon battle, strumpet Gaga” (it’s that period where Madonna became British).
Vote to see who survives, and who we leave to the dogs.
Sorry! This poll is now closed.
