Madonna on Lady Gaga Feud: 'People Like to Pit Women Against Each Other'
And once again, Madge is addressing the sorta-real, mostly-hyped Lady Gaga feud. Only this time, she's putting the nail in the coffin.
"We live in a world where people like to pit women against each other," Madonna said. "And this is why I love the idea of embracing other females who are doing what I'm doing. It's important for us to support each other."
That being said, Madonna isn't backing off Gaga entirely.
"The only time I ever criticized Lady Gaga was when I felt she blatantly ripped off one of my songs. It's got nothing to do with 'she's taking my crown' or 'she's in some space of mine.' She has her thing," Madonna said.
"I do think she's a very talented singer and songwriter. It was just that one issue. And everybody's obviously run with it and turned it into a huge feud, which I think is really boring, quite frankly. I don't care anymore. Here's the thing: One day, everyone's just going to shut up about it. You'll see! I have a plan."
Another thing Madonna is bored with? People fixating on her past hits.
"I don't think about my old stuff, I just move forward," Madonna told Rolling Stone. "Diplo kept wanting to play the bass line from 'Vogue' or something from 'La Isla Bonita' over and over again. I'm like, 'OK, let's move on.'"
