Madonna Says, "I Love Lady Gaga ... Imitation Is the Highest Form of Flattery"
According to E! News, Madonna recently told an Atlantic City concert crowd that she loves Lady Gaga, dedicating "Masterpiece" to Mother Monster and hinting a potential collaboration.
"Imitation is the highest form of flattery," Madge said. "But one day, very soon, we're going to be on stage together. Just you wait. You think I'm kidding? I love Lady Gaga."
Madonna's backhanded compliment was just one of several bits of uncomfortably vapid banter between her and the audience. In addition to cryptically calling Gaga a knock-off, Madge also yelled "Fuck yeah!" a lot before asking, "Have you grown up listening to my music?"
At least she didn't call anyone a Nazi, right?
Do you think Madonna really loves Gaga? Or is the Material Girl pulling a publicity stunt?
