It feels like we’ve waited far too long for this, but Madonna is reportedly finally sounding off on Lady Gaga, the female pop artist who essentially carbon copied the foundation of Madonna’s career to achieve her own fame.
Gaga has always cited the 56-year-old pop icon as a major “inspiration” for her career, often confusing the terms “inspired by” and “plagiarized from.”
But Madonna has finally had it, and according to a source speaking with The Sun, will completely shred the young “copycat” with some abrasive verses that are finally acknowledging the obvious on an upcoming album.
The source says Gaga “will be mortified” when she finally hears one song in particular, the lyrics to which reportedly go something like this:
You’re a copycat, Where is my royalty? You’re a pretty girl, I’ll give you that. But stealing my recipe, it’s an ugly look.
Did you study me hard enough? You’re never gonna be, you’re just a wannabe me. Like a sister all messed-up, who’s gonna help you out? In your fantasy, you can try it all. But you can’t be me.
You can walk the walk, even talk the talk. But you’ll always be two steps behind me.
Cut me down the middle, f***ed me up a little. You said I was your queen. I tried to give you everything. And now you want your freedom.
You got just what you came for, a bit of fame and fortune, and I’m no longer needed.
You tore me into pieces, you didn’t have no damn reason. I let you in my kingdom, you helped yourself with everything.
I curse the day we met. This memory is haunting me. I wish I could forget.
Adding that the new track may possibly be released as early as November, the source said “‘They’re very harsh lyrics but Madonna really wants to express herself again. Gaga’s going to be mortified.”
