Madonna Says, "I Love Lady Gaga ... Imitation Is the Highest Form of Flattery"

America's favorite "fucking fairground stripper" and the country's most prolific pop monster may soon share a stage.

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?
